Current leading edge thinking on consciousness has come round to echoing the understanding held by many ancient indigenous societies, including the Andean shamans.

Our guest is Dr. Hillary S. Webb, the Managing Editor of the Journal of Anthropology of Consciousness, and the author of Yanantin and Masintin in the Andean World: Complementary Dualism in Modern Peru. In this interview we explore the notion of polarities, and how they are actually a continuum of experience that challenges us to understand the essential connection among all things. Also, Hillary discusses her introduction to the use of entheogens from the mescal-bearing cactus, and the insights she got during those experiences.
