Editorial Reviews

In his debut book, Breaking Open the Head, psychedelic journalist Daniel Pinchbeck took readers on a journey into contemporary shamanism. This even more ambitious follow-up proposes that we stand near the beginning of a transformation of global consciousness. Pinchbeck's unabashedly "extravagant thought experiment" ranges freely over phenomena including crop cycles, globalization, Mayan prophecies, and his own hallucinogenic visions.
