Originally published back in 1992, then simply titled The Circlemakers, this is a highly insightful and significant book that contains updated and thought-provoking new material. Filled with great illustrations and color photographs, this is a tremendously thorough and original exploration of a vast multiverse of anomalous phenomena from Reich’s orgone, the crop circles, UFO abductions, fairies, and mysterious ancient sites. Andrew Collins makes a lot of fascinating and very noteworthy connections and comparisons, presenting his evidence that ancient and shamanic “Enochian Watchers,” builders of our world’s earliest megalithic monuments, may have interacted with the same plasma based life forms/intelligences that he suspects are interacting still to this day with our so-called UFO abductees, as evidenced with England’s Aveley abduction case, which he goes into considerable detail over. In his investigation of this multiple witness abduction case, he got to experience first-hand phenomena he could not explain in conventional terms.

Andrew explains the importance of orgone, the emerging science for plasma based life and intelligence, nonlocality/quantum particle entanglement, and the ancient and modern mysteries of the Cygnus star constellation. You’ll be amazed and quite possibly shocked at his theories and how he pulls all of this seemingly scattered and unrelated looking material together. You’ll quite likely be especially shocked by the substantial evidence he’s accumulated to validate his extraordinary and evolving theories concerning a plasma based intelligence that has quite possibly interacted with humankind since the most ancient of times!

Who is Jose Arguelles? Well does the Harmonic Convergence of 1987 sound familiar? Or how about the Whole Earth Festival? And, of course, everyone is talking about 2012, a subject that Jose Arguelles also introduced into our mass consciousness in a book entitled The Mayan Factor.

A rare combination of visionary, artist, consciousness explorer and scientist, Jose was a mere young man of 14 when he experienced a life-changing vision atop the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Mexico, back in 1953, soon followed by a precognitive dream that made him further realize that something different was going on in his life. As the years unfolded, Jose was exposed to many different people in many different lands and cultures and of many different belief systems. He studied yoga, Chinese Taoist traditions, Tibetan Buddhism, Indigenous studies, and so on. All of this contributed tremendously to his original thinking style and his acquired ability to penetrate through deep layers of complex information and be able to arrive at significant and meaningful insights and conclusions of historical, quantum, and cosmic importance.

Although this is a second edition to the one first published back in 2007, it contains updated and new information. A very well illustrated book, presented with much detailed information, the authors strive to make their case that the controversial Roswell Incident provides us with the best evidence yet for proving extraterrestrial visitation to our planet.

Their personal, direct involvement with interviewing witnesses, conducting extensive and pain-staking research, as well as visiting the Roswell sites certainly makes this book a very worthy contribution.

In this book we learn that the word “shaman,” derived from the Tungus people of Siberia means “one who sees in the dark,” and we learn how the shaman consciously chooses to live simultaneously in two different worlds. That is, the one of our ordinary five physical senses, and then another world that is entered in altered states of consciousness, commonly called dreamtime, shamanic trance, and/or non-ordinary reality. We’re given a crash course on the historical and global evolution, development and expansion of shamanism, its core elements, from animism to the Great Web of Life, the central axis, the three main Otherworlds, shamanic ecstasy and how to journey to the Otherworlds for spirit guidance, to gain insight, power, or to diagnose and treat a disease.

The authors contend that shamanism has endured for some 50,000 years, surviving the extinction of the Neanderthal (they cite the discovery of a 50,000 year old Neanderthal shaman’s body in France), and so surely it can help us in the times of change that lurk ahead for us. We see how shaman’s were the original multitaskers serving a multitude of functions and duties within their communities. We see how they were the original counselors, advisors, mediators, psychologists, midwives, bone-setters, herbalists, massage therapists, and spiritual teachers.

The authors also provide the reader with dozens of exercises for developing ones own shamanic mental, physical, and emotional life-style skills and practices. “Our destiny and the destiny of the world and its inhabitants are in our hands,” they write. “Jesus said, ‘The kingdom of God is within you’ (Luke 17:31). Many people come to shamanism to experience this principle on a personal level, and the great contribution of shamanism is that it provides us the means to do just that.”

The author, Dr. John Robinson, a psychologist, minister, and mystic, brings the essence of spirituality into the realm of the here and now for all of us. As a child, he briefly knew divinity, the essence of true happiness and peace, of Heaven on Earth, till the World of Man, as he calls it, descended around him, distracting and separating him from this awareness and direct participation with the divine. It wasn’t until years later, in his mid-life, that he was reading an account of one man’s mystical experience that his own journey from inner darkness and despair, back to the “bright world” of a childhood “lost,” that Dr. Robinson’s awareness began finally to unfold and return. Through that moment of recognition, Dr. Robinson began to perceive more clearly than ever that the clinical understanding of “psychological disorders” was incomplete. “In my heart of hearts I knew there was something missing, something fundamentally spiritual about our suffering and our joy, a dimension of reality as important and verifiable as anything psychology studied,” he wrote. “As a child, I sensed a pervasive, radiantly beautiful, living mystical reality shining all around me.”

Dr. Robinson set to work bridging the gap between this World of Man and the World of Divinity, integrating psychotherapy with spirituality, and as he lived and breathed the unfolding process himself he developed insights and exercises that have now helped many others. Now this transformative and enlightening pool of information is available to you the reader in the pages of this very book.
