In this compelling interview, David Chaim Smith and I explore some concepts that are widely promoted to spiritual seekers. Smith shares his experience, wisdom, and sometimes controversial opinions in a direct and thought-provoking manner. We examine the psychonautical exploration of neo-shamanism, the esoteric schools of the West, teachers and gurus, spiritual realizers, and much, much more.

    This is excellent and gives a message that really needs to be heard. I would recommend this one for public availability.

    Also check out Catherine Albanese’s A Republic of Mind and Spirit. Pretty encyclopedic, and packed with more than should probably be there, but a huge survey of the occult, metaphysical and lesser known spiritualist style movements in the US.
