I wrote this book from journal entries over a period of three years of intense work with psychedelics. These are the true medicines which the pharmaceutical-medical complex and governments around the world have suppressed. They work at the level of what is traditionally known as "soul" or "heart", revealing the Mind of the universe and, at a personal level, all that has been repressed in our own minds.
Which can be challenging to integrate. Scottish psychiatrist, R.D. Laing, once said that humans are psychophobic, afraid to see the truth of what's going on in our psyches. Overcoming the fear is an exercise in self-acceptance and self-compassion for all that caused us to hide from our experience.
I am humbled by the revelatory power of these medicines and how they re-introduced me to my heart.
The title of the book describes the intensity of my experience of being broken apart - in the best way possible - and being put back together. Both the "dismantling" and the re-formation is a work of love by mysterious forces. It is also by the kindness and good treatment of humans, like my mentor, Andrew Feldmar. Deep gratitude.
The book is not intended to be normative for others. There is no normal. But my hope is that it might provide hope and inspiration for you as you take your own journey into the deeper mysteries of what it means to be human.
