Lila Moore joins Jessica Bocker for this Transpersonal Tuesday Vlog to discuss her new course entitled The Shamanic Spirit in 21st Century Art, Culture and Technology. Have you ever wondered to what extent shamanic ritual and art have evolved together and catalysed the evolution of human culture and consciousness? Or how cyberspace and technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) intersect with shamanic technologies and practices?
The course also explores ways can we utilise digital, cyber and emerging technologies such as virtual reality and mixed reality to counteract violence, climate change, and generate well-being, compassion and communitas. There is also an experiential aspect which involves Networked Rites, an online collaborative, creative and ritualistic activity designed to induce a compassionate field of consciousness and communitas.
Our online distance-learning MSc in ‘Consciousness, Spirituality & Transpersonal Psychology’ provides an intellectually-stimulating programme of study which focuses on diverse topics around the nature of consciousness, the dynamics between psyche and soma, the psychology of self and higher states of being, and the psychological basis of spiritual and mystical practices. Our MSc programme is distinctive in valuing experiential approaches to learning and in encouraging students to incorporate insights from the programme into their own life journeys. In addition to a rigorous academic curriculum, modules exploring integral life practice, transpersonal approaches to research, and a research dissertation focus on the practical application of learning. The MSc programme consists of 180 course credits and most students complete the programme over 3 years, studying part-time. The programme is run entirely online, and it is validated by Liverpool John Moores University in the UK.
