We have entered Shamanic times. This is the central metaphysical truth emerging from our escalating climate crisis that is now endangering the basis of human civilization itself. Climate change is unleashing primordial forces, the intensity of which we have never encountered in our long history, and we must enter “primordial mind” in order to navigate adroitly through the turbulence that is now inevitable.
