Sean Kelly, PhD Interview and Live Q&A
Time & Location
About the Event
Sean Kelly explains transpersonal psychology as going beyond the materialist paradigm of current psychology, and back to the origins of the field. He notes how Jung’s exploration of the deep psyche resulted in the use of archetypes – ideal forms – to describe the foundational dimensions encountered there. The need for rites of passage to “bring us into the web of life,” is mirrored in Stan’s theory of perinatal matrices. Surviving these transitional rituals allowed participants to feel held in a larger reality. He closes by explaining how principles from quantum physics can help make sense of what is experienced with psychedelics, and also to clarify concepts from ancient spiritual traditions and philosophers.
