The Mysticism / Psychosis Continuum with Jules Evans

03/17/2023 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM ET


Join Jules Evans  as he will examine the thesis that mystical and psychotic experiences are on a continuum of experience, that mystical experiences can often contain quasi-psychotic aspects and psychotic experiences can often contain spiritual aspects. It will draw on his research on the history of ecstatic experiences, the nature of ‘spiritual emergencies’ and his present work on difficult psychedelic experiences. He will argue that we need better cultural literacy regarding ecstatic experiences, and this may change how we relate to psychosis in western cultures.
