The Art & Science of Transformation in Everyday Life
Living Deeply is the product of IONS' decade-long investigation into transformations in human consciousness. It brings what we know about achieving personal transformation off the mountain top, down from the ivory tower, out of the laboratory, and into your hands.
Our loss of deep intimacy with the natural world has had a devastating impact on human flourishing, perpetuating a vicious cycle of personal violence and ecological destruction. Restoring a felt sense of interconnectedness will heal the pain and return us to our intrinsic state of wholeness.
The Role of Consciousness Transformation in Compassion and Altruism
It is clear that human consciousness can be transformed through spiritual experiences and practices. Little is known, however, about what the predictors, mediators, and outcomes are of such transformations in consciousness. In-depth structured interviews were conducted with forty-seven teachers and scholars from religious and spiritual traditions and modern transformative movements to identify factors common to the transformative process across traditions.
