Biography:
Anthropologist Hank Wesselman, PHD., is one of those rare, cutting edge scientists who truly walks between the worlds. He received his Master's degree in zoology at the University of Colorado and his Doctoral degree in anthropology from the University of California. Hank first became interested in indigenous spiritual traditions back in the 1960s. Since then, his work as an anthropologist has allowed him to spend much of his life living among traditional peoples in remote areas, seldom, if ever, visited by outsiders.

Since the early 1970s, he has conducted field research exploring the ancient, eroded landscapes of East Africa's Great Rift Valley in search of answers to the mystery of human origins. He is currently doing research in the Middle Awash Valley in northern Ethiopia. It was out in the tribal lands in southern Ethiopia, that Hank first began to experience spontaneous altered states of consciousness similar to those of traditional shamans.

Anthropologist and author Hank Wesselman discussed his eight years of visitations, begun in 1996, with the late Hawaiian shaman and kahuna Hale Makua, who was like the Dalai Lama to the Polynesian world. As he chanted the names of his ancestors, "I could see him very subtly transforming...as ancestor after ancestor used the bridge that he was creating to come through his body, and through his mind, into our world," he said of Makua.

Makua gave Wesselman a gift-- a wooden bowl he called the "bowl of light," which represented the Aumakua (our higher self). Every time we step into the negative polarity some of this light gets diminished, Makua said, adding that the problem with the world today is that it's run primarily by "men whose bowls of light are filled by stones." According to Makua, people play out a primary role or archetype in each lifetime: server, artist, warrior, scholar, explorer/sage, priest/healer, or chief.

Makua told Wesselman of an Ancestral Grand Plan, which stressed connection rather separation and included a political foundation based on compassion, and the removal of national and religious barriers, as well as the idea that humans are in the process of becoming gods. Wesselman also reviewed his visions of experiencing life as one of his descendant selves in a tropical forest near the flooded valley of central California. He believes this possibly represents our future after global warming and the rise of sea level have taken hold.
