‘There exists, for everyone, a sentence – a series of words – that has the power to destroy you. Another sentence exists, another series of words, that could heal you. If you’re lucky you will get the second, but you can be certain of getting the first.’
—Philip K Dick, VALIS

‘The primitive magician, the medicine man or shaman is not only a sick man, he is above all, a sick man who has been cured, who has succeeded in curing himself.’
—Mircea Eliade, Shamanism: Archaic Techniques of Ecstasy

‘Shamanism is about shape shifting. Shamanism is about doing phenomenology with a tool kit that works.’
–Terence McKenna
