OS ep 48 – Maraya Karena – Collapse of the New Age, Cyborg Anthropology and Mystic Permaculture.


Maraya’s Main site

We go all over the map with this interview. I loved recording with the fascinating and powerful Maraya and hope to do it again in the near future. Check out the links below for information on what we discussed.

Sorry for the audio quality. It does get better after a minute or two. The recording device was slamming the limits for the first minute of recording, but I was able to catch it shortly after it kicked off.

Cyborg Anthropology

Shit new age girls say – Maraya speaks.

Student of Process Work.
We even dig into Soul Retreival and possible dynamics of reincarnation.

OS ep 47 – Taylor Ellwood – Manifesting Wealth

Magical Identity
This episode of the Occult Sentinel podcast features Taylor Ellwood. He was one of the first guests on the podcast back in 2008. On this episode of the show he discusses his new book on manifesting wealth and an upcoming release which is an evolution on his older pop culture magick book. I hope many of you find this inspiring because I did. We don’t necessarily need to hold on to our counter cultural ideals and be poor in order to be empowered magical people. Poor also doesn’t necessarily need to mean financially poor. There are many ways in which people can be poor including a terrible work life, Interpersonal relationships and poor play life.

I hope you enjoy this episode of Occult Sentinel Podcast and share it with your friends!

OS ep 46 – Philippa Rees – Involution

Involution Cover
Philippa Rees and host Joe Moore have a deep dive into Philippa’s book. South African and British narrative poet Philippa captures the beauty of the subject in wonderful prose. The concept was sparked by an unexpected and uninvited mystical experience followed by decades of revisions of the book. I loved interviewing Philippa and really want to know what the audience thinks. A few of my friends and family can expect a gift copy of this book in the near future.



Philippa Rees wrote a book that is a rarity: it is on a controversial, actually hair- and eye-brow-raising subject, and it is totally sincere.  And totally insightful. If you the reader are as brave as this author, you are in for a fantastic ride.  Getting close to science as well as to God at the same time.  That’s no mean feat. Enjoy the ride – and the light! (Dr. Ervin Laszlo)

OS ep 45 – Rak Razam – Aya Awakenings

Aya Awakenings – Rak Razam

“The vine has spread her tendrils across the world and a genuine archaic revival was underway. My bags were packed, South America beckoned, and the ancient mysteries of the rainforest awaited. I wanted in on it…”
– Rak Razam

This is the 45th episode of the show released to the web on January 9th 2014.

This show features Rak Razam, a new guest to the show. Rak is a freelance journalist, author, film maker, and podcaster from Australia doing a lot of work covering the entheodelic community or psychedelic medicine communities around the world.

I just finished watching Rak’s newly released film “Aya:Awakenings”. It is a stunning film that pulls from Rak’s Book that is Titled “Aya: A shamanic Odyssey” and was newly released as “Aya: Awakenings – a Shamanic Odyssey”.

In this show we cover subjects all over the map including how the western magical practitioner may approach this area and practice.

How Shamans see Ayahuasca functioning on the health and healing of individuals.

Some of the metaphysics or cosmologies surrounding Ayahuasca Shamanism and much more. This was an amazing show to record, and I can’t wait to turn some more people on to his films. Rak will be touring North America with the film starting with New York on Jan 16 2014 and He’ll be in Boston on January 21.
