Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Another outstanding interview, Brit, and very interesting. A few items particularly caught my attention:
  • Red lights in the bedroom to induce sleep: Didn't know that! When I think of red lights in the bedroom, I think of the "red light" district in Amsterdam or the scene in Annie Hall where Woody Allen's character, Alvy, tries to spice things up with Annie by introducing a red light for the bedside lamp for, as Alvy put it, "a little New Orleans feel." Maybe that's why Annie and Alvy's relationship ultimately failed? He was using a light that made her sleepy in the bedroom? It's interesting also, however, that the color most conducive to sleep is the same color associated with the root chakra (muladhara). That chakra often relates to basic survival needs; perhaps sleep is one of those needs and focusing on the color red feeds that chakra.
  • ADHD and ADD: Found the connection of ADHD and ADD to sleep disorders very interesting, and it is disturbing that sleep disorders in children are getting misdiagnosed as ADHD and/or ADD. I know Thom Hartman is a real advocate for children diagnosed with ADHD/ADD Think Shirley interviewed him once--two amazing minds! I wonder if his book The Edison Gene addresses this connection at all. I know I've got a copy of that book somewhere around my house. Is anyone familiar with it or know if he addresses the connection in that book?
  • PTSD: Dr. Rosenberg's comments on PTSD are very similar to those reported on in the NPR news story if any of you are interested in that particular aspect of sleep disorders.
Thanks again, Brit, for a wonderful, thought-provoking conversation.


Namaste,

Steph

Also liked the part about muscle tensing technique. This is often used by yoga teachers at the end of classes just before savasana.

Namaste,
Steph

Thumbs up Brit~

Just got around to hearing this one. Excellent interview!
I thought of some questions while listening.....but a little too late. Lol

I learned some new things to try.....turning off the TV and computer about an hour before bed.....eating some complex carbs before bed.....taking a little melatonin every night.
You sold me on buying this book!
