‘My first unambiguous encounter with ‘subtle energy’ was very far from subtle, and ambushed me in the course of a teenage LSD trip…’ Decades later, Dave Lee tells a few of the stories of his experiments with sensed energy, via psychedelics, the technique of Connected Breathwork, ‘energy healing’ and the technologies of reality-change known as Chaos Magic. Dave reports on years of magic and breathwork, examining reports of internal energy transmutations, of energy passing between people (the Chaotron) and of energy apparently travelling vast distances, and asks what we can learn from these experiences. These thoughts about sensed energy are placed in the context of embodied wisdom, and how it can help collapse the toxic thoughtform of mind-body dualism.
Dave Lee is a Chaos magician, breathwork coach and writer with a fund of bizarre experiences. He has spent decades researching effective techniques for undoing our conditioning and changing our realities, including Chaos Magic, entheogens and body alchemy. He is a qualified breathwork coach and a leading light in the Chaos Magic organization the Illuminates Of Thanateros.
Dave’s writings have appeared in more occult and underground magazines than he cares to remember and he was one of the early editors of Chaos International magazine. His non-fiction books include: Chaotopia!, The Wealth Magic Workbook, Bright From the Well, Connect Your Breath, and Magical Incenses. He is currently completing his ground-breaking book, ‘Life-Force: Adventures in Breathwork and Energy Magic’. Details of his books can be found on his website.
Dave has run workshops on magic since 1993, in UK, USA, Germany, Austria, Spain and Holland. Visit his website http://www.chaotopia.co.uk/ for details of books and talks or email firstname.lastname@example.org for occasional updates. Experiences that are too weird to fit into his non-fiction get used to create the other realities he writes about- see his novels The Road to Thule and Twisted Power. His fiction is featured on a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/KingdomOfWessex?ref=hl
