 Having read French Sociologist, Gustave Le Bon’s, illuminating book, The Psychology of Crowds, over the summer, I made a note to do an episode on crowd manipulation, the undermining insidiousness of propaganda, and the history of government-run schooling. Not a subject the average person wants to know about and yet each and every one of us continues to be saturated in propaganda and social programming everyday. If we put our heads in the sand on this our social issues will continue unabated. No hero is coming to save us and certainly no president from either wing of that same bird either.
 
Knowledge is power and those who have the curiosity and mental clarity to study how social manipulation works are able to see the con and avoid its spell. In this episode I will be sharing information that most people have little to no awareness of. Le Bon’s book explains the foundational steps of how control of the masses works, which may sound uncomfortably familiar to those who listen in. The subject of social engineering would be incomplete without discussing that odious character, Edward Bernays, and equally odious, Frederick W. Taylor, the anti-intellectual and hater of the individual and, I’m afraid, one of the architects of compulsory schooling.
 
The second hour focuses on the Prussian school system, which is the blueprint for compulsory schooling in this country. I share from the esteemed, John Taylor Gatto’s book, The Underground History of American Education, which is absolutely mind-blowing. In order to solve a problem properly we must address its cause. This will give you some food for thought and hopefully some inspiration as well.

This is my second time interviewing astrologist, Robert Phoenix, and he did not disappoint. Robert gave his listeners a big head’s up in fall of 2019 that something major and debilitating was coming in 2020. That information inspired me to prepare practically and mentally/emotionally for what was coming and I weathered that storm. We are now two eclipses into a notable eclipse cycle, with the third and final eclipse occurring in April of 2024. The above image is the path of these 3 eclipses happening right on the U.S.A. These particular eclipses mark massive upheaval in this country, rippling outward to the rest of the world.
 
A maxim of the medieval alchemists states, “As above, so below.” Our night sky has informed humanity for millennia, guiding ships and marking omens and major turning points. In this episode Robert discusses the astrology playing out through these eclipses and the effects that we’ve experienced thus far, and what is a likely scenario for the next few years. Astrology often feels like the script for what plays out here on earth and one can easily understand why kings, queens, presidents and other leaders and influencers have had their astrologists and continue to use them today.
 
Robert is not an astrologist who sugar-coats, and the information he brings for these next few years is sobering, but as the old saying goes, “forewarned is forearmed” and the practical, grounded side of me wants to know what’s ahead so I can prepare accordingly. Adversity is a great and powerful teacher and our spirit is more ready than many of us realize to greet the challenges with courage and aplomb.

Earlier this year I began researching Iodine in earnest, and discovered it is the capstone to actual health and mental acuity. In the last 70 years we have been made to fear this essential nutrient that has a documented historical resume of reversing conditions like goiter, cysts, tumors, mental retardation and much more. As a result of misconceptions, the vast majority of us are iodine-deficient, which leads to a number of conditions linked to iodine deficiency such as fibrocystic breast disease, thyroid diseases, ADHD, cancer of the thyroid, breast, ovary, prostate, endometrium, and more.
 
In the first hour I will explore the medical use of iodine that traces back thousands of years, and its efficacy for healing conditions that plague many people today, and I’ll share what happened in 1948 that steered three generations of doctors away from this important nutrient. You’ll learn about toxic Halides and how they undermine our Iodine levels, and I’ll discuss the Iodine protocol created by Dr Guy Abraham, M.D.
 
The second hour covers which iodine works best, how to take it, what to do for children, pregnancy, breast cancer, thyroid disorders, ADHD, and more. This has been a very illuminating and uplifting area of research for me and I am excited to share this treasure-trove of information with you.

Lakshmi Narayan has been a decades-long student of the I Ching, the oldest known oracular system that hails from ancient China. It is a system that confers timeless wisdom, and it is as relevant today as it was when it was created. In her effort to support those on a path of healing after an ibogaine journey, (or any other psychedelic) Lakshmi has made available a superb mentorship program titled, Change Your Character. The course consists of nine hexagrams that serve as “a framework and philosophy for change and right-action, and as a way to ground the transformations initiated in the altered state into a new way of being in the world.” The course is a tremendous assist for anyone seeking to develop themselves, whether they work with psychedelics or not, they will gain a deeper understanding of the I Ching.

In addition, Lakshmi is the Creative Director of Awake Media, and President and co-Founder of Awake.net, a social network for the entheogenic community. She is also the creator of the FEAT program, (the Fund for Entheogenic Addiction Treatment) whose mission is to end addiction through ibogaine treatment, and she is producing a film, Iboga Saves that will document the psycho-spiritual healing journey of people going through iboga/ibogaine initiations.

In this episode Lakshmi discusses the I Ching’s extraordinary ability to speak directly to an issue and deliver pertinent counsel to the querent. In the second hour I ask the I Ching a question on how to navigate this time of intense challenge, and its answer is beautifully astute and profound. With Lakshmi’s years of study and understanding, she further elucidates the I Ching’s message, making for a powerfully instructive listen. I am honored to share the wisdom of this very special woman who is steadfastly working to bring healing and spiritual awakening to our world.

The medicinal mushroom market is rife with fraudulently advertised products that contain little medicinal value due to certain growing methods and poor sourcing. Those dealing with cancer and other illnesses who are seeking to avail themselves of the many healing constituents these mushrooms contain are often deprived of receiving the extraordinary benefits found in properly sourced fungi. Enter Garrett Kopp, a learned and dedicated steward of the Adirondack forests in northern New York State whose heartfelt connection to that precious land enables him to hear what he calls, “the whisper in the wind.” He is a voice for Chaga sustainability and he speaks to the importance of sourcing wild-harvested medicinal mushrooms for their forest-given potency.
.
Birch Boys was launched by Garrett shortly after his 16th birthday. Today, Birch Boys offers teas, powders and tinctures of wild-harvested Chaga, Artist’s Conk, Reishi, Turkey Tail, and other medicinal fungi that can be trusted to deliver the goods. In the first hour Garrett talks about his introduction to Chaga at the age of 15 by his grandmother, whose spirit continues to support his efforts. He discusses the dynamic relationship between medicinal mushrooms and trees and why this makes forest-grown mushrooms far more medicinally potent than those grown on grain or sawdust in plastic bags. Garrett is also an ecologist and he shares on the issues we are facing regarding the eradication of yellow birch trees (Betula Alleghaniensis) on which Chaga is found. He also discusses the lesser known Artist’s Conk, making an illuminating comparison to Reishi, (Ganoderma Lucidum), its Chinese cousin.
The second hour focuses on Amanita Muscaria, the well recognized red and white-capped mushroom. I was eager to hear Garrett share his knowledge and experience there and he did not disappoint. He also touched on the absolute importance of knowing your mushrooms when wild-crafting, mushrooms that are the most pharmacologically active, anecdotal stories of beneficial effects, and more.
.
Garrett is a national treasure and I think you will very much appreciate what he shares in this episode.
