Overview

This is the testament of a teenage drug dealer’s initiation into a metamodernist tribe, and their aspirations toward human speciation upon an irradiated island that lies beyond civilization. His gospel is a psychedelic reprisal of our immemorial myths in a near-future world wracked by climate change, petroleum depletion, and American imperialism, where he confronts the same exigent questions of life, love, and destiny that we share in the present day.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is so real because Brian Love is much more than a writer who carefully researches his subject. He has lived many of the realities he describes."
David Holmgren, co-originator of the Permaculture concept

"Fascinating, and not quite like anything you've read before, ENTHEOGENESIS: Origin of the Divine within Us is also a necessary book, a book whose time has come."
Pat LoBrutto, recipient of World Fantasy Award for editing

Meet the Author

Brian Love is an autodidactic polymath of sustainability, iconoclastic ecowarrior, and connoisseur of consciousness. He began crusading for the next paradigm by leaving high school to humanifest a personal transitional strategy. His incubation was nine years study at Earthaven Ecovillage, a neotribal demonstration of off-grid livelihood in the mountains of North Carolina, where he employed himself as a master builder, permaculture designer, organic farmer, ecological forester, and renewable energy installer. In concurrent adventures he became a shaman, psychonaut, bluewater sailor, artiSunal entrepreneur, prognostic anthropologist, and physique model. At twenty-six, he wrote Entheogenesis, my first novel, and created Belove so its publication would spell decriminalization of industrial hemp cultivation, and celebration of the prophet Terence McKenna, whose eschaton marks the occasion. At twenty-seven, he left his hard-wrought home, farm, and community to bring what he’s learned from the fringe of society back to the mainstream, by evolutionary apparel for meme propagation, and tour of indefinite duration, with uncertain destination.
