Awareness, Phantasy and Physics with Gaie Houston
An important distinction exists between consciousness and awareness. Gestalt Therapy is concerned with raising awareness. Non-ordinary states of awareness are in most people’s experience, yet for the most part only the vocabulary of pathology describes them. This talk aims to remind us of the ways in which this therapy can enhance our awareness and use of them.
The Healing Power of Non Ordinary States of Consciousness with Dr. Tim Read
Discussing some of the key concepts of archetypal psychology drawing on Plato, Jung and Grof, while concentrating on the elements of archetypal openings that have most relevance for the psychotherapist. Tim asks how can we access, harness and integrate the depth and power of numinous experience for therapeutic use and for psycho spiritual development?
