Trauma, Science and the Spiritual Path

I am an ex-senior science administrator and stored products entomologist; electronics inventor; ex-specialised kinesiologist and clinical hypnotherapist; now a psychic and (by the grace of God) a mystic, with science degrees in biology & psychology, also a B.A. majoring in sustainability.

I hold that we may only know through direct experience, all else being hearsay.  Of course even experience is subject to uncertainty, and is best reality checked-especially metaphysical…

When A Pope Resigns...

The Catholic world has been struck by the resignation of its Holy Father - as was St Peter's Basilica by lightning on the very day his resignation was announced (Monday Feb 11 2013).

The image suggests to me that something very deep is at work here.

I'd love to hear from any Alliance members who…

Do We Need More Psychology?

Dennis L. Merritt, Ph.D.

In the famous 1957 BBC interview, C.G. Jung proclaimed, “We need more psychology, the human psyche must be studied! Humans are the source of all coming evil.”

Psychology is positioned to usher in a holistic approach to the study of the human psyche, our relationship to the environment, and a truly interdisciplinary educational system. As Jung pointed out, all we know and experience comes out of the psyche and all our systems, including science, have…

Education Institution
Psyche Under Siege

After giving a lecture where I discussed the Holocaust, an elderly man approached me. I could see a genuine kindness and compassion in his face, and also sensed that his soul had seen far too much in his lifetime. He wanted me to re-consider my comment that we could never understand what created the Holocaust and ongoing acts of genocide.

Gently, yet firmly he explained that when we stop trying to understand, we open the door open for future occurrences. I immediately realized that I…

On Magic, Shamanism, and Listening: The Collective Unconscious of C.G. Jung

Barry's Blogs # 49, 291: Zero Dark Thirty is a CIA Recruitment Film, Parts One and Two

Part One

…doing terrible things in an organized and systematic way rests on ‘normalization.’ This is the process whereby ugly, degrading, murderous, and unspeakable acts become routine and are accepted as “the way things are done.” – Edward S. Herman

Do theaters tailor their previews of upcoming films to certain audiences? Prior to viewing Zero Dark Thirty in liberal Berkeley, I had to endure…
