Erik Davis is an author, award-winning journalist, independent scholar, and lecturer based in San Francisco. He is noted for his visionary eyes as he peers into weirdness and wonder of the dawning of our post-millennial era. In addition to Techgnosis, he is the author of The Visionary State: A Journey through California's Spiritual Landscape, with photographs by Michael Rauner. California is famous for its diversity, its eccentricity, and its prophetic influence on popular culture. Since the 19th century, the Golden State has also been one of America's most fertile climates for spiritual and religious movements. Beautifully weaving together text and image, The Visionary State is the first book to address the full story of "California consciousness."
Erik will be presenting an important workshop on the history of the American mysteries with Revelations guest Mitch Horowitz at the Esalen Institute. For information about this event visit Erik's website TechnoGnosis.com.
