"When a man finds no peace within himself,
Contemporary ecological and societal crises present unprecedented challenges and opportunities. Driven by increases in human population and per capita consumption of resources, and shaped by the consequent contamination and degradation of the natural and built environments, our current path is clearly unsustainable. We have the opportunity to move away from the gloomy historical nihilism that characterizes the reign of our patriarchal and dominator culture.
An integrative approach is required if we are to create new options for a sustainable future. The environmental challenges of the 21st century require individuals who understand environmental, scientific and spiritual complexities and can implement a multi-disciplinary approach to environmental problem-solving at personal, local, regional and global scales.

Artist as neophyte shaman rational:
Beuys believed that humanity, with its turn on rationality, was trying to eliminate “emotions” and thus eliminate a major source of energy and creativity in every individual. In his first lecture tour in America he was telling the audience that humanity was in an evolving state and that as “spiritual” beings we ought to draw on both our emotions and our thinking as they represent the total energy and creativity for every individual. Beuys described how we must seek out and energize our spirituality and link it to our thinking powers so that “our vision of the world must be extended to encompass all the invisible energies with which we have lost contact.”
Beuys observed at the time that “his personal crisis” caused him to question everything in life. He saw death not only in the inevitability of death for people but also death in the environment and he became, through his art and his political activism, a strong critic of the environmental destruction.
Continuing Bueys work, I’m acting as mediator between Gaia and it’s stewards, I’m gearing up 2013 and lead New Earth project with a new uniform (ceremonial regalia) to navigate Spaceship Earth for a more compassionate, empathy and gnosis crew that will lead with action and conscience in building A New Earth.
We have entered a period of great change, a synchronized, related crash of the economy and the ecology with food shortages, climate catastrophes, massive economic change and global geopolitical instability. The great disruption will ultimately take human society to a higher evolutionary state. One that is not biological but consciousness - a neo archaic rivival.
This disruption is inevitable and imminent and despair is a stage we have to go through. In fact it is a positive sign of denial is coming to an end. We all need to arrive at, individually and collectively and one that we must move through. Hope is waiting above the periscope when view with different level of personal spiritual alignment.
"The shaman role is to become a bridge for the power of creation and for the Creator. A bridge that healed the Earth and all the things of the Earth, making life truly rich, free from sins of the flesh. It is to leave our children a legacy of love and purity, rather than a world of hatred and greed. The quest of the shaman is to heal on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level all things of the earth and sky. We are part of a whole, a collective consciousness that encompasses all things. If one part of the whole is sick, we ourselves are sick and cannot be whole until all is whole." - Excerpt from Awakening Spirits, Tom Brown, Jr.
The Rainbow prophecy, as it has come to be known, refers to the keepers of the legends, rituals, and other myths that will be needed when the time comes to restore the health on Earth. It is believed that these legendary beings will return on a day of awakening, when all people will unite and create a new world of justice, peace and freedom, and they will be named the ‘Warriors of the Rainbow’. They will reteach the values and the knowledge that has been lost in time, demonstrating how to have wisdom and extra-perception, and how unity, harmony and love is the only way forward.

Herbalism and Shamanism: I learn how to identify and use herbs as a healing modality. These plants that we label as weeds are precious and it's heals the land and the man. I started looking at health as a holistic view both physical and spiritual. Shamanism open up a new world view of energy and spirits that connect us all for one source and anyone can tap into the resources and access it's wisdom.
