Going Native in America Part 1 of a few

During the course of my life I have been a student of many philosophers, teachers, gurus, religions, ways of life and primarily of experience. One particular teacher that flits regularly across my radar is Carlos Castaneda. You may know that this apprentice shaman (man of knowledge) wrote several books in the 60’s and 70’s of his mysterious apprenticeship with Don Juan.

In the early years of our journey Gwas and I delved and explored everything that this guy wrote. Many a pint of beer was left un-drunk in the blaze of discussion. Since that time and this we have often correlated on too many occasions some part of Castaneda’s teachings. So it is that I often go through his works and find more material to bring colour to our explorations.

As you may know, over the last year (wow a year!) I have been back and to from America and on this occasion I had some amazing experiences and gained some truly esotoric knowledge, which I will share with you herein (and other places). 

There must be a start to this tale and it is with a modern day amazing American by the name of Tony Robbins and a 4 day event consisting of 50 hours of amazing experiences known as “Unleash the Power Within

5000 people, all in one place, all in an emotional peak state, all on a similar journey to become more than they are, all with their own inspiring pilgrimage story.I would argue with anyone who says that such an event wasn’t spiritual. In fact I would say that it was spiritual in every sense. I got to meet some amazing ordinary people with extra-ordinary stories.

If you want me to blog some of them drop a comment below and I will be happy to oblige.


 This total emersion event which was about 15 hours a day for 4 days was a rock concert come seminar come emotionally and belief shattering event. It was on the 3rd evening of this event when I left the hall for a few minutes of rest, recuperation and sustenance and was sat on a patch of grass letting my energy refill that a guy came over to me and says.
