On The Shaman's Path - Egypt


I’m again departing for Egypt with this year’s travel group and by the time you read this I will most likely already be there. So here are a few thoughts shared from last year’s journey.Read more

An Encounter In Egypt with Isis

Many of my writings explore the issue of what it is like to make connection with the archetypal forces that are often referred to as ‘the spirits.'

In approaching this subject, I am well aware that the whole issue of contact with transpersonal beings is a problematic one for us Westerners because we do not grow up in a culture in which connection with spirits is part of our ongoing experience. In fact many of our fundamentalist religious sects (with great righteousness) warn against having any contact with spirits because they are ‘evil.'

This monumental misconception has generated widespread fear in the populace at large that, in turn, has created separation between us and those transpersonal allies who are poised to help us in various ways.Read more

In the King's Chamber...Once Again

In December of 2008, Jill and I led a travel group to Egypt during which many insights were gained and many had transpersonal connections with the localities that we visited. This account is taken from my notes on the day we entered the King's Chamber in the Great Pyramid at Giza.Read more

Shamanism - A Heart Path

A new sense of the sacred has appeared in the Western world, one that incorporates spiritual realization, personal growth psychology, and being of service all in one orientation. This spiritual reawakening is generating a real change in attitudes as we move into and rediscover our own spirituality, and it is generally believed that this resurgence of interest in the spiritual, proceeding from the personal to the global, has the power to shift the directions of world history.Read more

Millennium Message

Everyone seems to be sending out inspirational millennium messages these days, so here are some thoughts derived from encounters with members of the modern mystical movement over the past 18 years. These meetings with remarkable people have led me to suspect that there are countless numbers of "evolutionary sleepers" out there in the main stream of humanity, each a holon containing within itself an extraordinary biological-energetic program that can reveal who and what we may all become as the human species continues its ascent toward the culmination of our evolution.Read more

A New Story for a New Time


Warm greetings from us here on Hawai'i Island. I have just returned from teaching in New York, so the word 'warm' has special meaning.

I am often asked by members of the public at conferences and workshops, and even occasionally by my less timid (or should I say more courageous) academic colleagues, how I, with my training, my anthropological fieldwork, and my advanced degrees from prestigious universities (the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Colorado at Boulder) could abandon my scientific objectivity and "wallow" in superstitious non-science or nonsense.Read more

New Years Greeting 2009 - Three Sacred Directives


New Years Greetings...with the beginning of 2009, as well as the beginning of a new political administration in Washington DC, we are being regaled by e-mails from our readers and friends, expressing renewed hope and enthusiasm for our future.

In response, we are reminded of the words of Paul Ray and Sherry Ruth Anderson from their book 'The Cultural Creatives' (2000): "...We should take hope for we are traveling in the company of an enormous number of allies..."Read more

SharedWisdom Aloha - The Stone Returns



If you have read the Spiritwalker Trilogy, then you are aware of our relationship with a sacred stone... an object of great power that came into our lives in 1987. This occurred on The Big Island of Hawai'i through the visionary pipeline established between Hank and his descendent Nainoa, who lives far away in the future. Read more
