Sarah Rose Bright – Sex Coaching: From Shame to Shamanism

sarah rose bright

Sarah Rose Bright is a sex coach far beyond the vanilla kind.

“Conventional sex therapy just deals with talking,” she explained in a recent interview with The Eternities podcast. “A lot of people carry a lot of fear, a lot of shame and tension, and all sorts of things that are difficult to address with talking only. For many people, a more practical approach can take them a lot further.”

Sarah’s own life was transformed via an intensive course of sexual self-development that began with her attendance on a Tantra workshop for her thirtieth birthday. Instantly, she knew she had found her calling and rapidly began learning her new trade to help others find similar healing and transformation.

Jerry Mintz and Daniel Sage – Home-Schooling, Unschooling and Teenage Liberation

So argued the German philosopher Johann Gottlieb Fichte, said to be a key influence on the Prussian education system, which in turn became the educative model in many countries, including the US and UK.

According to Jerry Mintz, a prominent figure in the alternative school movement and the founder and director of the New York based Alternative Education Resource Organization (AERO), little has changed. In a recent interview with The Eternities podcast, he said, “I’m sure that was the template they used and it’s been that way ever since.”

Tom Shroder – LSD, Ecstasy and the Power to Heal

Shroder_Tom_AcidTest_cover_expandedThe tide seems to be turning with regard to attitudes to the healing powers of psychedelics, says Tom Shroder, the author of a new book on the subject. And, according to some researchers, their incredible efficacy is down to their ability to unleash the mind’s own “innate healing intelligence”.

The award winning journalist and ex-editor of The Washington Post Magazine spoke to The Eternities podcast about his latest work, Acid Test: LSD, Ecstasy and the Power to Heal, which looks at the history of psychedelic therapy from the fifties to the present day.

He said, “Our system, as biased as it might have been against psychedelics, certainly was based on [a] belief that science could prove something, and science [has been] proving the efficacy of these drugs … in clinical conditions. They’re plenty safe enough. In fact, they’re much safer than most other drugs used in psychiatry. So, you can’t argue with the science.”

Andrew Clover – A Novelist’s Near Death Experience

andrew_clover_largeThe main character in Andrew Clover’s latest novel has an accident, her consciousness splitting to revisit significant scenes in her past and to review her life. And this, he claims, happened also to him.

He discusses his near death experience during which he seemed to leave his body in the latest podcast from The Eternities.

Clover fell and knocked himself out while running to collect his young daughter from a local bus stop. But instead of finding himself unconscious, he claims to have remained aware.

“I could actually see my body in this puddle, and then I was just thinking, ‘The girls!’, and I was remembering my eldest daughter.” Suddenly, he found himself viewing her safely making her way home.

“And the next thing, I was back in my house and I could see my eldest daughter … she was fine. And I was in the living room and I could see my youngest daughter, lying on the sofa. And I just suddenly thought ‘ Oh my god, what have I done!’ Just terrible guilt. What I saw really quickly were sort of scenes in my life with her.
