Ancient Wisdom and Modern Research
With Pier Luigi Lattuada, Marie Dominique Linder et Jean Marie Delacroix
G. Jung called the cultural complex of our modern Western civilization – a dissociative disorder – in which our human nature separates us from primordial Nature. Entering altered states of consciousness may be beneficial for re-viving our archaic knowledge and integrating it into our modern mind. Consciousness-expanding practices, including the application of psychedelics/archaidelics, have been used for thousands of years in ritualistic applications by cultures around the world to enhance psycho-spiritual development, healing and well-being. They may serve as femtheogens [feminine entheogen = in = oneness theos God – as a spiritual experience] enhancing the feminine principle of relationship and acting as a bridge between human nature and nature as a whole. These may include activating our erotic intelligence by enchanting our wild sensual body archives. An integral sacred science that intertwines both the rational knowledge of scientific empiricism and the intuitive knowing of spiritual experience is proposed as an inclusive paradigm to promote the healing of the fragmentation that is at the root of our current world crisis.
Enchanting Erotic Intelligence – Towards a More Than Human World Dream Incubation, Tantric Body Practices, and Shamanic Eco-Practices
G. Jung diagnosed the cultural complex of our modern Western civilization – as a dissociative disorder – in which our human nature separates us from primordial Nature. The workshop focuses on how to overcome this tragic split from egoism to echoism. Through our body archives we can access the capacities of human perceiving and sensing an animal-like instinctual and erotic knowledge to re-construct ourselves in a ‘more-than-human world’. Entering altered states of consciousness may be beneficial for re-viving our archaic knowledge and integrating it into our modern mind. They may serve as femtheogens [feminine entheogen = in = oneness theos God – as a spiritual experience] enhancing the feminine principle of relationship and acting as a bridge between human nature and nature as a whole. Methods from dream incubation, Tantric Body Practices, and Shamanic Eco-Practices will be intertwined. We will co-create and share a collective dreaming field and dance with Eros through our body archives.
