Gnostic Guru – A Talismanic Poem – By William Watson
Fly to the center of the Buddhaverse in the Headspace time machine piloted by Dennis Mckenna as he reads a talismanic poem crafted by Terence’s friend, William Watson, to speed them on their way to the Amazon, back in ’71. We’ve woven in strains of the arcane so watch out for poisonous frogs and demon dogs…I kid you nyet, this one’s a trip..and if you haven’t yet read Dennis’s book; Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss, you can get an idea because this poem is included as an appendix…
Climbing the Vine – at The Temple of Tanit
It’s amazing to have filmed one of the chapters of Dennis Mckenna’s’ Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss” – Climbing the Vine, in which Dennis Mckenna shares the story of his ayahuasca trip in the Amazon with the Goddesses at the Temple of Tanith on Ibiza, Spain, with Schwann and Joey in 2004. In fact, this is the exact spot that the name for Cognition Factor was delivered to us through Joey and Dennis..or was it the Goddesses?
Technically, this has been one of the most difficult clips to produce due to the very loud cricket noises in the background. Ernie Vega at Structured Silence in New York had to use forensic audio techniques to make this track audible at all, and even now you have to pay attention to get what he’s saying, so we used some 936 hrtz (pineal activation) binaural harmonics to soften the blow…
This is the first of 2 clips being released right now with Dennis Mckenna.
