Hey, in case you didn’t yet hear the amazing news… my baby has grown and I’ve moved website to mapsofthemind.com ! There are some new features (like quote of the week – awesome right?), and as well as all the old content I’ve already made a few new posts. Please head over and let me know what you think …
I came to find myself yearning for some kind of travel-like adventure, comparable to a fair segment of people in their early to mid 20s. I find it hard to believe that many folk would want to lead a life that is aimed towards going through the motions of working your life away to scrape by, and that was the common factor with myself. At the time I had been working 60-80 hours a week for the last 5 years, and as a chef, typically underpaid.
I’ve scoured the web and tried a host of different meditations from different resources, made this list of the best ones, free of course. For beginners and ease of trial I’ve put a direct link to a short meditation from each resource so that you can dive right in.
I first seriously started considering my multi-microdose wilderness trip immediately after I’d booked the three-day tour to the Salt Flats of Bolivia- the day before it started. A multi-day trip through desert past lagoons, geysers and other natural wonders was fairly calling out for a psychedelic and despite having read a few online articles on the positive effects of microdosing, I’d never actually gotten round to it. This struck me as a perfect opportunity
If you’re planning a trip to Mexico or Central or South America, the first piece of advice I would give you is: learn Spanish! Unlike travelling a region like South-East Asia where every country has its own language, rendering almost everything you might’ve picked up useless everytime you cross a border, almost the whole of Latin America, (nearly 20 countries), has one language in common: Spanish.
I headed out to the sea and put my hand to the waves as they rolled over. Watching them closely, I studied their form. I could see the fractal in action, simultaneously seeing the same form across scales, how the waves broke into tiny versions of themselves as they hit the beach; I was witnessing the ancient Hermetic teaching: As above, so below.
If you’re planning a trip to Latin or South America and don’t yet speak any Spanish, now is the time to learn. If you speak a little but want to improve, this is the perfect opportunity. Going beyond the basics is when the real fun begins and you can start conversing with people and entering their world. Either way, this post is for you.
