Shamanism
"A shaman uses a different brain to process what he sees, and because he uses the whole nervous system, he has a greater wealth of perceptual symbology...

A shaman sees the whole field of vision in exact details because the perception is not confined by the brain's limited holographic symbology... It isn't just a question of gaining a greater perception. It is what you do with that perception that counts." -- Talk of the Month #23, "The Way of the Shaman"

Mr. Gold warns students, in his shamanism talks, that shamanism is a very serious practice, a way of performing the Work immediately, right now. It requires discipline, strong commitment and willingness to give up all personal addictions and forms of imaginary helplessness. These talks provide an excellent introduction to Shamanism as a way of entering The Work.

The R. & F. Invocation

Lee Lozowick and E.J. Gold join in a rollicking 1985 convention session that ranges from grim survival subjects to ribald expression of work ideas to the 100th Monkey Syndrome as a means of understanding The Work. Mr. Gold recommends this talk that uses the analogy of "running & f--king" as a prime example of an invocation in which the content is not significant for its meaning but rather for indication of group mood-shifts and space changes that reveal how the invocation is proceeding.
