Earl Lee, University Professor at Pittsburg State University and the author of numerous books and articles will discuss his book, From the Bodies of the Gods: Psychoactive Plants & the Cults of the Dead....The origins of modern religion in human sacrifice, ritual cannibalism, visionary intoxication, and the Cult of the Dead. We'll explore -• Explores ancient practices of producing sacred hallucinogenic foods and oils from the bodies of the dead for ritual consumption and religious anointing
• Explains how these practices are deeply embedded in the symbolism, theology, and sacraments of modern religion, specifically Christianity and the Eucharist
* These practices continued openly into the Dark Ages, when they were suppressed and adapted into the worship of saintly bones--or continued in secret by a few “heretical” sects, such as the Cathars and the Knights Templar. While little known today, these rites remain deeply embedded in the symbolism, theology, and sacraments of modern religion and bring a much more literal meaning to the church’s “Holy Communion”
Crossing the threshold into the second half of the show, we have author Tony Burroughs, author of The Law of Agreement helping us discover the true power of intention. Learn about intentional living and how when we lend our agreement to a belief, we reinforce it and make it stronger. Tony will tell us about the opportunity in adversity and what happens when we don't get what we want. Tony is a storyteller and co-founder of The Intenders of the Highest Good, a grassroots community movement with Intenders Circles in countries across the globe.
