Daniel Pinchbeck

Daniel Pinchbeck, (b. June 15, 1966) is a writer and advocate of psychedelic drug use and experience. Wikipedia says: "He is the author of Breaking Open the Head: A Psychedelic Journey into the Heart of Contemporary Shamanism. In Breaking Open the Head, Pinchbeck explored shamanism via ceremonies with tribal groups such as the Bwiti of Gabon and the Secoya in the Ecuadorean Amazon. He also participated in the Burning Man festival in Nevada, and looked at use of psychedelic substances in a desacralized modern context. Through his direct experiences and research, and influenced heavily by the work of anthroposophist Rudolf Steiner, he became convinced that the shamanic and mystical view of reality had validity, and that the modern world had forfeited an understanding of intuitive and supersensible aspects of being in its pursuit of rational materialism." His recent book is titled "2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl." Hot Link: Breaking Open the Head
