Interview with Rabbi Gershon Winkler on Shamanic Judaism - May 11, 2013

Listen to the Show

Where Did the Road Go? Show Archive

This was a very deep interview, where we discuss everything from cycles of ages to existence to gay marriage. Rabbi Gershon Winkler is a wonderful person to talk to, full of positive energy and wisdom, as you will see. Gershon is a widely recognized scholar in the fields of Jewish law, lore, theology, and mysticism. A descendant of a scion of rabbis originating in Judea, Rabbi Winkler has devoted much of the past two decades to writing and teaching about the lesser-promulgated wisdoms of Judaism and to Hebraic scriptural interpretation. He has published fourteen books since 1980, four of which have seen several printings and two of which were banned. His most recent works include: Decalogue: Facts and Fallacies of the Ten Commandments, The Judeo-Christian Fiction, Daily Kabbalah: Wisdom from the Tree of Life, and Magic of the Ordinary: Recovering the Shamanic in Judaism. Among many things, we discuss...
 
  • How he became a Rabbi.
  • How Orthodox Rabbi's react to his work.
  • What the Kabbalah really is.
  • Ancient Wisdom and Mysteries.
  • The Cycles of Time and worlds.
  • The Tetragrammaton and it's meaning.
  • The Nephilim
  • The Importance of 7.
  • Reincarnation.
  • What the Ancient Teachings really say about God.
  • What the Bible really says about Homosexuality.
  • Good and Evil.
Also, throughout the interview we will hear three songs from Rabbi Dr. Miriam Maron. You can find her site, music, and more at www.miriamscyberwell.com. You can check out Gershon's material, and much more at www.walkingstick.org

Interview with Karyn Crisis on Channeling, Mediumship, Spirit Communication, and more... October 26, 2013

 
 

Where Did the Road Go? Show Archive

Karyn Crisis is the former vocalist to a Metal band called Crisis. She is currently singing for a Black Metal band called Ephel Duath.
 
In contrast to that, she is also a spiritualist and artist. We discuss her work and lectures that she has been doing the last few years. We will talk about the history of Spiritualism, energy, channeling, healing, Reiki work, and Shamanistic ideas. We hear a bit about her past and what led her down this path, and also how it has influenced her music. She also answers some listeners questions near the end. 
 
You can check out her work at www.karyncrisisheals.com and you can peruse her artwork at www.karyncrisis.net. Her artwork is rather dark and we discuss some of her art inspirations as well. She is a talented and unique artist in many respects.
 
If you are interested in hearing the second part of the interview about Karyn's musical endeavors, head over to www.thelastexit.org and it can be found in the interview section.

The Secret Tradition of the Soul by Patrick Harpur (2011)

The Secret Tradition of the Soul is a magnificent piece of work. Like poetry flowing through the ideas that Patrick presents, drawing down the outline of ineffable things. You go on a journey here, exploring different concepts of Soul, Spirit, Ego, Reality, Consciousness, Afterlife… Otherworld. He brings to life the concept of the Daimonic, it’s influence on us, it’s reflection, it’s path. Our path. The Soul that we should connect to, but often in our modern world, do not. At a bit over 200 pages, this is densely written, in that it contains a great deal of information, exploration, and wisdom. He traverses the archetypes of mythology, the images of the shaman, and the disconnect of our material, ego-driven world. He does so, though, with a balance and grace that inspires when you read. It made me feel good to read this. That is the simplest way to put it. Patrick does a wonderful job of outlining the interplay of Soul and Spirit, and how they differ. It starts off a little dry, but it does need to accommodate you to its ideas. By halfway through, it’s hard to put down, yet hard to read too much of at once as it often needs to sink in. He travels down different paths to the afterlife, from Near Death Experiences, to Tribal beliefs to spirit communication. Jung’s ideas run throughout, as do mythological themes. It is actually hard to write about this book. It is a deep piece of work, bordering on art. It is rejuvenating, and I couldn't recommend it higher, at least if something deep and philosophical doesn't scare you away…

Supernatural: Meetings with the Ancient Teachers of Mankind by Graham Hancock (2006)

Graham Hancock never ceases to impress me. That is not an easy task, and Supernatural, again, does the trick. I wasn't sure what I was getting into with this book, I had read very little about it, but knew that it had little to do with his previous works. One of the things that I admire about Graham is that he approaches things so open, with respect and wisdom. A sense of wonder is always present. He never gets so caught up on a theory that he starts losing his balance, he is very aware that he may change his mind further on down the road as more information comes to light. This is what is lacking in so much paranormal and fringe work. This piece starts off a bit slow, working its way through the various cave art around Africa and Europe, and discussing the various theories on what they mean. Where he goes from there is fantastic. I have always held that there are strong connections between the fairy faiths, UFO’s, angels and demons, etc., as well as occult experiences. However, I had never thought to add into that Shamanic and trance experiences. Graham manages to strip back yet more of the disguise, and show the connections between them all (not so much on the occult side of things, though). It expands on the ideas of researchers like Jacques Vallee, and manages to tie in even more of the puzzle. At no point does he, however, present you with a set theory or idea. He is not someone to push things, and that continues here. Graham explores the various ideas and research conducted on altered states of consciousness, and pokes around in some DNA theories, and tries to show, more than anything, the connections, and possible correlations between what seem like widely separated subjects. Also, not one to sit by and use other people’s work as a substitute for direct experience, he travels to see said cave paintings, just as he dove on undersea ruins, and traveled to lost cities for past books. He also experiments with various mind altering drugs, in order to really understand what he is writing about. His experiences and conclusions make it all the more valuable. Once again, he antagonizes the dogmatic, however unintentional, in an honest and open exploration of ideas. It’s something that science as a whole could benefit from. You don’t have to agree with anything he concludes here, or anywhere else, but he pursues his course with honesty and integrity. He is open minded and logical. He doesn’t shun science, but isn’t afraid to speculate, either. Well worth the hefty read. You may walk away with a new way of looking at the world...
