A master storyteller, Graham weaves recurring historical themes with the most profound questions: What happens after we die? What is the true nature of consciousness? How did human culture emerge and what lessons can be learnt from our past? Much of the subject matter will be elaborated on in his soon-to-be published book, Magicians of the Gods.
He will share evidence that a planetary awakening is underway, the birth of a new – or perhaps very old and long-lost – form of human consciousness that has the power to save us from ourselves and take us forward through a difficult transition not to doom and disaster but to a bright new epoch.
* What is the true nature of consciousness & how can psychedelics (plant hallucinogens, such as ibogaine and ayahuasca) help us to penetrate the mystery? (To this end, Graham has on numerous occasions experimented with psychedelics.) He claims that the ancient Egyptians used such plants to access higher levels of consciousness and that they (psychedelics) are “undoubtedly the most effective & reliable means for inducing a radical alteration of consciousness & are wrongly demonized – not wicked things we should be sent to prison for”. * What happens after we die? * As Humanity stands at the crossroads & must choose between fear & love, what lessons can be learned from the past* If we are not sovereign over our own consciousness, we cannot claim to be free * Spiritual forces are possibly at work behind history – not from individual wickedness of mankind but dark spiritual demonic forces that deliberately seek to misguide us & put us onto negative & destructive paths…
