Gwilda Wiyaka: So, We’re Still Here. Now What? Spiritual Evolution and Personal Empowerment in a New Era

So, We’re Still Here. Now What? takes you beyond the end of the Mayan calendar and into the predicted New Era, helping you rearrange your life so you can shift more easily with the ongoing changes that lie ahead. The book delves deeply into the hidden principles behind effective shamanic practices that were used long ago to steward people through times of change, and it teaches you how to use these principles to navigate through today’s disruptions. You learn how to be supported by the laws of nature and the universe and how to uncover the true power of your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. The concepts Wiyaka offers have been field tested in her thirty years of private practice as a shamanic practitioner. This is a solid reference volume that belongs in every serious seeker’s private collection.

Gwilda Wiyaka is a dynamic, diverse woman of mixed heritage. Born in the United States, she grew up overseas and is widely traveled and familiar with many cultures. Her background with different societies and locations around the world and ongoing fascination with the way life works, prompted her life-long immersion in shamanism, an ancient Earth-based healing modality present in most if not all indigenous societies. She has studied shamanism for more than thirty-eight years, has been a practitioner for more than twenty, and a teacher of the shamanic arts for fifteen. She has studied with American Indian healers from the Seneca, Sioux, Navajo, Arapaho, and Choctaw traditions. She has also received training in Tibetan, Core, and Celtic shamanism. She is the founder/director/owner of Path Home Shamanic Arts School, which is a one-of-a-kind, state-certified occupational school of the shamanic arts, training and certifying shamanic practitioners.

Inner Paths to Outer Space ~ Rick Strassman MD

Inner Paths to Outer Space (Park Street Press, 2008) combines the interests and expertise of four co-authors, including Dr. Strassman. The idea behind the book was originally conceived by the 2nd co-author, Dr. Slawek Wojtowicz, a hematology-oncology researcher, who is also a science fiction author and illustrator. He believed the science fiction community should be made aware of the results of the UNM DMT research, particularly regarding the experience of contact with “beings” which was reported so frequently.

Seeking a broad base, we then invited Dr. Luis Eduardo Luna, an anthropologist with extensive experience in the cross-cultural use of ayahuasca in shamanic and psychotherapeutic settings, to join us. Dr. Luna then suggested we add to our contributors Dr. Ede Frecksa, a Hungarian psychiatrist with a broad-based and wide-ranging perspective on quantum phenomena in psychiatric research and phenomenology, as well as shamanism. Each author contributes two to four chapters, resulting in a free-wheeling and stimulating presentation of some of the more intriguing implications of the original DMT research in particular, and that of the psychedelic experience in general.

Rick Strassman MD performed the first human studies with psychedelic drugs in the US in over 20 years. His research involved the powerful naturally-occurring compound, DMT – N,N-dimethyltryptamine. Led to this substance through his earlier study of the pineal gland as a potential biological locus for spiritual experiences, he administered several hundred doses to DMT to approximately 60 volunteers between 1990 and 1995. He wrote about this research in the popular book, DMT – The Spirit Molecule, now in its 15th printing. With three distinguished collaborators, he co-authored Inner Paths to Outer Space, which looks more carefully at the common “other worlds” experience volunteers typical of the DMT effect.

Since 1996, Dr. Strassman has been exploring models for the DMT effect, and has focused primarily on the Old Testament concept of prophecy. This is a spiritual experience which takes into account the apparently external, free-standing nature of the DMT “worlds,” in which one’s sense of self is highly preserved and interactive. This is in contrast to previous models that borrow more heavily from Eastern religious systems, ones that emphasize unitive, ego-dissolving experiences. In addition, the prophetic model deals directly with ethical and moral concerns, adding a crucial element to our ability to understand and integrate the content of the psychedelic experience. He is developing these ideas in his next book, The Soul of Prophecy, due to appear in 2011.

An investigation into experiences of other realms of existence and contact with otherworldly beings

• Examines how contact with alien life-forms can be obtained through the “inner space” dimensions of our minds

• Presents evidence that other worlds experienced through consciousness-altering technologies are often as real as those perceived with our five senses

• Correlates science fiction’s imaginal realms with psychedelic research

For thousands of years, voyagers of inner space–spiritual seekers, shamans, and psychoactive drug users–have returned from their inner imaginal travels reporting encounters with alien intelligences. Inner Paths to Outer Space presents an innovative examination of how we can reach these other dimensions of existence and contact otherworldly beings.

Based on their more than 60 combined years of research into the function of the brain, the authors reveal how psychoactive substances such as DMT allow the brain to bypass our five basic senses to unlock a multidimensional realm of existence where otherworldly communication occurs. They contend that our centuries-old search for alien life-forms has been misdirected and that the alien worlds reflected in visionary science fiction actually mirror the inner space world of our minds. The authors show that these “alien” worlds encountered through altered states of human awareness, either through the use of psychedelics or other methods, possess a sense of reality as great as, or greater than, those of the ordinary awareness perceived by our five senses.
