Another brief update - fast-breaking developments

I think we are caught in an accelerating fractal time loop! So much is happening I can't keep up with it. But a few things I wanted to bring to your attention. As you know if you've been tracking these updates, I have changed some of the incentives for pledges on the Kickstarter main site. One of the offers that has been popular are the free passes to the Evolver Intensives webinars at the $130 level. Those sold out almost immediately,so my friends at Evolver have kindly agreed to let me offer 20 more passes at that level, which is great. I just posted the change on the main site, so those incentives are now available. Get em while they're hot!

Also in connection to the Evolver event, I wanted to let people know that Evolver would like to sign you up to be an Affiliate to promote this program (as well as future programs). As an Affiliate, you can get a 20% commission on every pass that you sell from your site. So this may be of interest to those of you who have web sites, mailing lists, and other promotional sites or activities.  This may also be of special interest to those kind people who have invited me to make podcasts for their sites!  So for details on how to sign up, go here:

And for the personal touch, to resolve any problems or answer questions, contact Jennifer Palmer at  She will help you get signed up and resolve any issues. I can tell you from personal experience she is awesome. 

And, here's another podcast, courtesy of Lorenzo at Psychedelic Salon.  He's gone back into his archives and unearthed this one, appropriately titled Exploring the Abyss, from an early Terence show in 1982. In Lorenzo's own words: November 1982 talk that Terence McKenna gave in which he spoke about four abyss' humans must face. And about some of the early explorations with his brother Dennis he says they were either “very loose science or very tight magic”. He also has some very interesting things to say about death.

Very timely and so cool. Even I haven't heard this one, so enjoy.

Stay tuned. More podcasts and 'stuff' coming up. Fundraising continues and is looking good!
