CNS5027 Non-Ordinary States of Consciousness

Course Description

This course introduces the history and contemporary study of the great variety of non-ordinary states of consciousness that humans have experienced. The neurophysiology associated with these states of consciousness is addressed. Students apply a developmental view of consciousness to their own and others' non-ordinary experiences by learning how to integrate such experiences into their daily lives. Emphasis is placed on Stan Grof, Chris Bache, Ken Wilber, entheogens, and the comparison of mystical experiences from East and West.
