Gnosis: The Not-So Secret History of Jesus

Huffington Post, 2012

The rites of the various Jesus mystery schools provided a rare alchemical education for initiates, unifying spiritual energy (pneuma, as the early Christians called it). In the words of The Gospel of Philip, “The Lord did everything in a mystery, a baptism and a chrism, and a eucharist and a redemption and a bridal chamber. … he said, ‘I came to make the things below like the things above, and the things outside like the things inside.

The Healing Power of Anger

Reality Sandwich, 2010

Reality Sandwich, 2010

After writing an article about the psychopathic defenses of U.S. power structures, it hit me that our mass population may have a reactionary personality type to our nation’s overarching one.  According to Bioenergetic therapy, millions of Americans might suffer from masochism.  If so, what can we do about it?

What Jennifer Aniston May Not Know About Ayahuasca

Huffington Post, 2012

In just a few years, the once secret “shamans brew” of the Amazon has snaked its way into the popular consciousness, including the entertainment industry with cameos in the TV shows “Weeds” and “Nip/Tuck” and now the movie “Wanderlust.” But the question remains: Can Hollywood portray this ancient medicinal, psychonautic elixir with the maturity and complexity necessary to address its multifaceted experiences?

Top 10 Books of the New Edge

Reality Sandwich, 2012

A generation of avant-garde writers are making conscious magazine headlines and electrifying the festival-speakers’ circuit. Featuring a brutally honest look at the shadow self, and society at large, these books are not fluffy New Age reads. They are harder to define, hosting a multidimensional mix of spiritual awakening, new media activism, punk attitude, Burning Man aesthetic, and Occupy ideologies.
