Healing Mysticism: Deep Psychotherapy and Unitive States (SKU: AH-W2-307)
Futurehealth WinterBrain 2 hour workshop by Thomas Brod
Research into psychotherapy with psychedelic drugs was in its infancy when federally supported research into such drugs was essentially halted in 1965. Competing models of ?psychedelic vs psycholytic? therapy were left with unfilled promise, and the dominant model of psychoanalysis at the time, ego psychology, had little to contribute to the discourse. In this workshop, the present-day work of Toronto-based Professor of Religious Studies and psychoanalyst Dan Merkur will be the springboard for a new consideration of the potential therapeutic application of drug-enduced mystical states.
