Rabbi Rami talks to Jon Turk about what the vision of a Consciousness Revolution, the journey to ecstasy, and his book Crocodiles and Ice: A Journey into Deep Wild. An article by Jon can be found in the Nov/Dec 2016 issue of Spirituality & Health.
Jon received his Ph.D. in chemistry in 1971 and worked in theoretical research and then in environmental education. Jon gradually abandoned academics to engage in extreme adventures all over the world. His circumnavigation of Ellesmere with Erik Boomer was nominated in 2012 by National Geographic as one of the world’s “Top Ten Adventures of the Year” and was also awarded “Expedition of the Year” by Canoe and Kayak Magazine. Jon’s world-view was transformed through his five year friendship with Moolynaut, a 100 year old Siberian shaman. This adventure is chronicled in The Raven’s Gift. Jon’s newest book, Crocodiles and Ice: A Journey into Deep Wild represents a continuing exploration of a Consciousness Revolution based on a deep, reciprocal communication with the Earth. www.jonturk.net
