DANIEL PINCHBECK BREAKING OPEN THE HEAD PDF

Jul 18, aloveiz rated it it was ok The least insulting thing I can say about this book is maybe that Pinchbeck was too young to write this when he did. In general, I got the feeling he wrote this to enhance his hip, New York bachelor, image. He travels around being the witness, relaying different accounts of psychedelic or shamanistic encounters without The least insulting thing I can say about this book is maybe that Pinchbeck was too young to write this when he did. He travels around being the witness, relaying different accounts of psychedelic or shamanistic encounters without expounding on differentiations between the terms. His personal anecdotes all seem too recent, and too egotistical. But the best part of this book is the message that really gets driven home to the heart of who we are, the potential of what we have yet to learn about ourselves, something humankind has barely scratched the surface of-- which he saves for the few chapters toward the end.

Examining the nature of prophecy during this period, Pinchbeck investigates the New Age hypothesis of Terence McKenna that humanity is experiencing an accelerated process of global consciousness transformation, leading to a new understanding of time and space. Pinchbeck concludes with an account of receiving a transmission of prophetic material from the Mesoamerican deity Quetzalcoatl ,.
