In this course we explore multidimensional applications for the transformation of individual, transgenerational, and ecological trauma, drawing on clinical, transpersonal, indigenous, and psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy approaches and research. The goal is to support the person’s innate capacity to restore the mind-body-spirit-balance and eventually wholeness, including such dimensions as interpersonal relationships and relationships with nature, the cosmos, culture, and the community. An overarching intention is to support consciousness evolution, social change, and community building⎯from egoism to earthism⎯as a form of peaceful transpersonal activism.
The course consists of two parts of content. In Part I, ‘Individual trauma and transformation,’ we look at clinical, somatic, and transpersonal body-mind-spirit approaches and psychedelic science to diagnoses, theory, practice, and research. Part II covers Collective and Ecological Trauma and Transformation, focusing on transpersonal, transcultural, deep ecology approaches and psychedelic science – implications from theory, research, and practice.
