The Vine of Death & Meeting Grandmother

Pods from the Far Beyond
Well, it's not that bad, this vine, but there's meaning in the name. I've just been to an Ayahuasca ceremony, to seek some truth and resolution, and the Grandmother came to me, or I went to her, and I surfed a rather big, surging wave.
Ayahuasca, an Amazonian tree-vine, is called the Vine of Death because, while you don't actually die, what happens resembles the experience of dying and it's good practice for it. This, of course, is rather useful to me because, as a cancer patient, that journey is not far away. I got some practice.
The Grandmother is the spirit or goddess of ayahuasca, to whom we are challenged to yield, to receive her teaching and blessing. I met her - we all did - and she treated me gently, then to give me a shake-up.
The journey was very much about resolving and re-weaving some key threads in my life, shedding some baggage and opening to the future. Yes, a person at the end of their life does have a future - in a way, quite a big one.
Four men from three countries, plus a magic cat, travelled a light-year or two in the otherworld and returned, and this is the story as seen through my eyes.
It's in two parts, covering the first and second days of the ceremony. This is a very personal story, with some tears and chuckles thrown in.
Those of you who know me or have been following me, or who have been listening to or reading my cancer story, Blessings that Bones Bring, might find this interesting. If you're new to my blogs and podcasts, I really have no idea what you'll think of this one, though I hope you enjoy the ride!
Part one is 33 minutes long, and part two is 25. With love, Palden.

Palden JenkinsThis is a series of insightful podcasts on a wide range of subjects by a 1960s veteran who never quite gave up.

Now doing battle with bone marrow cancer (myeloma), I still have a few things to say and do before I go.

Whether or not you agree with this stuff, or whether or not I'm correct, I hope it connects a few dots, assisting your ruminations and lighting you up.

I've been a founder of several projects, a writer and editor of quite a few books, a speaker from many stages, a humanitarian peacemaker, seer and historian. Oh, and an astrologer and geomancer. And a webmaster... it goes on, the list.

These podcasts tell of things learned along the way. The way continues. You never get to the destination - there's always more. Strangely, accepting that makes getting there easier.

Since contracting cancer in 2019, I haven't been able to get around as before, so I just take short hobbling walks. Living in a homely cabin on an organic farm near Land's End, reasonably far from that madding crowd, I'm listening and watching, writing and podcasting whenever the zeitgeist twiggles my antennae. And yours. In a way, listeners like you pull it out of me.

When the weather is good, the recording studio is just down the field by a stream near the woods - with geese, crows and chaffinches providing soundscape services. Other times it's at my home. Or at the bronze age barrows up the hill on our farm. Or when someone takes me out for a clifftop jaunt.

These podcasts aren't scripted. Naturally I think up the subject and a few talking points. But it's quite spontaneous. When you've been giving attention to things over many decades, eventually they just come naturally.

Podcasts will appear here as they come. Do return here or check my blog or Facebook page to see whether more have appeared. If you 'follow' my blog you'll be informed by e-mail when blog posts and podcasts come out.
