R.D. Laing in the Twenty-First Century: What Are Altered Realities?

Jul 16 - 21, 2017 Begins in 4 months
with Fritjof Capra, Michael Guy Thompson & Heather LaFace

Scottish-born psychiatrist R. D. Laing devoted his career to exploring the nature of alternative realities and heightened awareness. In this year’s workshop, designed for those in the mental health and healing professions, we will explore the nature of altered realities, including extreme states. To alter a state of awareness suggests a catalyst, an instrumentum employed to initiate a transformation in consciousness, whether by invoking mindfulness, yoga, meditation, breath work, or imbibing a drug, whether psychedelic or psychotropic.
