An Interview With John Perkins
Omega: How would you describe a shamanic journey to someone who has never experienced one? John: I think everyone has taken a shamanic journey, they just haven’t called it that.

An Interview With Culadasa
Omega: What is the biggest challenge for beginning meditators? Culadasa: The biggest obstacle of all, without question, is establishing a regular daily practice of a reasonable length.
