Early on, it grew out of an interest in psychology, and this led to a more esoteric outlook.
I mostly resonate with shamanistic techniques and traditions these days; plant and energy healing. I strive toward balance and look for common ground in spirituality. With that said. I stumbled upon my first shamanic experience 20 years ago and I view this as having initiated my journey down the rabbit hole in earnest. More recently, Shipibo shamanism, originating from the Amazon, has been the most influential upon me. I also have some roots in Western mystery traditions, Alchemy, Kabbala, etc. Understanding ancient knowledge in light of the modern sciences is something I relish. I try to stay open-minded and not get too attached to any particular belief system.
Recently, I've taken an interest in Qigong and have begun to work with the micro-cosmic orbit meditation technique. Music is my therapy, and I use sound in my practices, such as mantra. Sometimes I will use active imagination techniques similar to those described in Jungian psychology and the Hermetic tradition together with sound/music. I'm open to learning or using anything I find useful. I have a keen interest In the concept of a collective consciousness shift and often entertain theories/philosophies concerning outcomes of transitioning from the current cosmic time cycle. However, I resist dwelling on negative aspects of conspiracy fact/theory.
