In developed societies, there is one form of consciousness that is welcomed and considered normal.  But humans have access to other ways of being aware, and we have done so for thousands of years.

This presentation offers context for nonordinary states of consciousness and describes the work of Stanislav Grof, MD into these states.  We will spend some time exploring his model of perinatal matrices -- how our birth process creates a powerful imprint for the rest of our lives and connects to the transpersonal realm.

Questions and comments will be welcomed throughout.

Participants in this workshop will join in with those partaking in the 4-day Shift Still Happens retreat.  Bonus: you can deepen your journey by joining us for the whole retreat!

Advance registration is required. Please contact Ted if you have any questions or concerns.

This is a free lecture, but pre-regsitration is required.
