February 7th, 2020

If you’re interested in the nature of reality, the meaning of life, what is consciousness, and other big questions, I think you’ll find this ten-minute interview superb!

One Response to “The Slippery Slope Towards Animism: Sheldrake on Consciousness & World Views”

  1. Oh I love how Sheldrake sparks my mind! I first read Sheldrake’s theories on collective consciousness when I was studying at university many many moons ago and fell under a spell of awe and inquisiteness. I believe wholeheartedly that the mechanistic patriarchal world view, or paradigm is responsible for the current horrifying state of our world and the trauma people are experiencing in their lives and psyches. Having lived immersed in that destructive world view growing up, the discovery of animism and exploring shamanism, buddhism, druidry and wicca has blown my mind and I love that there is a change occurring in western mainstream thought on consciousness and our world. I love that the scientific community is discovering things that indigenous cultures have known for so long and that there is a rise in women’s spirituality and power globally. What I find frustrating is the rate at which this shift is occurring. For our planet, nature and people to survive at all, change of world view is essential, or I fear for the future and our fast approaching demise.
