#039 Intera: Consciousness of Ancient Civilizations - Betty J. Kovacs PhD (Author)
In this episode, I speak with Dr. Betty Kovacs, author of Merchants of Light, about how the ancient civilizations had higher interconnectivity with cosmic consciousness through their shaman-mystic traditions.
Today this consciousness is surfacing once again all around the world. It is rising out of the dreaming, symbolic, visionary mind that is sensitive to deeper orders of reality and in tune with the creative principles of both the human psyche and the universe. This mode of consciousness can heal the wounds of our current worldview by igniting these creative principles within modern, rational consciousness.
Here’s what you can expect from the episode;
- What is Merchants of Light?
- What are the misunderstandings of our view of ancient civilizations?
- How the ancient people were using sacred plants and other techniques to reach altered state of consciousness
- How the Duerteronomists reversed the course of our spiritual and religious construct
- What she thinks the ancient civilizations will say about our modern society
