Why Psychology Needs to be Revised and Re-Enchanted
Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016
07:00 PM – 08:30 PM
Discover why modern psychiatry, psychology, and psychotherapy need to be revised to account for the central nature of spirituality in the human psyche. Drawing on observations from more than fifty years of pioneering research into non-ordinary states of consciousness, Dr. Grof will propose a range of necessary changes to long-standing, outdated theoretical assumptions regarding: the nature of consciousness and its relationship to matter, the dimensions of the human psyche, the roots of emotional and psychosomatic disorders, and therapeutic strategy.
