Understanding and Navigating Your States of Consciousness

Ralph’s new six-week live interactive video seminar, presented by Evolver Learning Lab. Each class is a 60 minute online video, slide-illustrated talk, followed by 30+ minutes Q and A discussion. Seminars start at 8:00 pm EST and each talk and discussion will be downloaded for later viewing and reviewing, especially useful for those in other time zones. Here’s a complete description and sign-up information.

In this course, we will be discussing:

One: The Janus Model of the Life-World and Self System;

Two: The stages of the Life Cycle, from the pre-natal to the elder phase;

Three: How to recognize and distinguish stages, states and levels of Consciousness;

Four: The four familiar states of waking, sleeping, dreaming and meditating;

Five: High and low energy, pleasant and painful states and how to work with and through them;

Six: Expanded, contracted and dissociated states – how to recognize them, use the positive ones for creativity and well-being and navigate through the negative states.

We will also be using diagrams and other material from Ralph’s latest book, Ecology of Consciousness – The Alchemy of Personal, Collective and Planetary Transformation – due out March 1, 2017.

Entheogenic experience: Finding the pathways of your soul in the world

A six-week live, interactive video course, presented by Evolver Learning Lab,
starting June 29. In each session Ralph will present one of the six pathways and
will describe how to identify the gifts and challenges of each of these pathways;
after the initial presentation, we will have ample time for discussion and
questions. There are written course materials which will help you to explore how
you and the people you know best are functioning on these pathways in the world.

We sense intuitively that as a human soul, we are here on Earth for a purpose.
Spiritual and shamanic traditions have spoken about seeking and finding a vision for
our life in the world. Who am I? Why am I here? Why did my soul choose to be born
into this family, at this time, in this place? These are the basic questions that
we find ourselves confronting – at important choice points in our life, in
entheogenic experiences or on vision quests. What is my destiny? What are the
pathways in which I can express my creative vision and talents? We will consider
the six archetypal pathways that have been identified in all parts of the world and
all historic periods, in order to better understand your life experiences, visions
and challenges.

The pathways are:

  • One – The Explorer, the Scientist, the Seeker, the Pioneer
  • Two – The Healer, the Shaman, the Therapist, the Peacemaker
  • Three – The Artist, the Story Teller, the Poet, the Musician
  • Four – The Teacher, the Historian, the Social Scientist, the Journalist
  • Five – The Warrior, the Guardian, the Reformer, the Activist
  • Six – The Builder, the Organizer, the Producer, the Engineer
