What is it that attracts shamans, mystics, and other visionaries to the experience of altered states? It is the fact that some wisdom cannot be accessed through ordinary consciousness alone, proposes Daniel Pinchbeck. In Reality 2.0: Shamans, Psychedelics, and the Next Step in Evolution, this trailblazer of nonordinary reality shares a firsthand account of his quest for a "system upgrade" for human society.
Long before 2012 entered the public eye, a handful of pioneers dedicated themselves to studying the scientific, spiritual, and prophetic evidence that marks this year as a critical time in our planet's history. In The Mystery of 2012, eight of these thought leaders present reliable research alongside eye-opening revelations - all to help you prepare for what lies beyond this crossroads.
Through direct experience, Daniel Pinchbeck has learned that shamanism is a real phenomenon and that direct access to the spiritual world is available to anybody who is willing to explore for themselves and escape the prevailing orthodoxies, as well as the "irrational rationality" of the current system. Daniel supports the perspective of Christ in the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas, who said: "Open the door for yourself, so you will know what is."
