Higher Transpersonal Education, Research and Publication: A Call for the Next Generations and the Young@Heart
An Initiative of the EUROTAS Department for Transpersonal Research (EDTR)
Interactive Co-Creative Workshop
Life is – metaphorically speaking – living higher education, research, and publication. But how much more exciting is it when one can contribute to the field of transpersonal psychology and interdisciplinary related fields through research, publication, and practice? Choosing a relevant topic at university for a Master‘s and PhD, allows for transmitting to the field of practice, and publication beyond academics to a general population for the greater good. Inner ecology and transpersonal education calls for diversity, independence and equilibrium in a changing system. This is a call to give voice and take responsibility to contribute in whatever way the call is received, and to plant the seeds manifested further in infinite ways and possibilities.
In the first part of the workshop, we will give stimulus input including examples of our own journeys, and experience from teaching transpersonal psychology worldwide in different academic organizations and promoting diverse approaches, from the fields of our expertise. Examples will include: Bridging psychedelic science and transpersonal psychology with a focus on trauma-informed intimacy-centered Deep Ecology/Divine Feminine/Indigenous approaches and embodiment (Hess); Biotransenergetics in Theory, Research, Practice, and Beyond (Lattuada); and overcoming barriers in mainstream universities, and working with psychodrama and holism (McMullin); on individual, collective, transgenerational and transcultural levels.
In the following second co-participatory, co-creative part, we will work with open group process methods in most evocative ways to explore needs and visions with you the participants, focussing on how to manifest these through future transpersonal research; the young@heart as a global manifestation – from egoism to earthism – restoring our roots and lineages – towards a new era of living in balance and harmony with everything.
