Work Study - The Human as Two: Channeling in History and Practice

May 10 - Jun 07 Begins in 9 months
with Jeffrey Kripal

Channeling is a modern expression of an ancient practice found all over the world and throughout human history in numerous forms, from ancient Greek prophecy to various forms of divine possession to the revelation of scripture. Those practices generally involve a deity, ancestor, spiritual intelligence, discarnate being, or other dimension of the self speaking through a human person to an individual or a community, usually for some set purpose, crisis, or direction. They are also deeply intertwined with the history and practice of inspired writing.
