Science Fiction and Spiritual Awakening: Exploring the transformative power of speculative story telling

Jeff Carreira Creative Process, Spiritual Awakening Leave a Comment

In this unusual audio recording you will explore one of the more curious edges of philosophy and learn that during the twentieth century the pages of science fiction and fantasy novels became important storehouses for our culture’s emerging esoteric teachings.

You will also explore why the philosopher Richard Rorty has said that philosophy itself is better served by writings of fiction and poetry than traditional philosophical treatises.

And before the evening is through you’ll discover why Dr. Jeffrey J. Kripal believes that many modern day mystical writers have chosen to work in the medium of comic books because of the freedom of expression they find there.

And finally you’ll learn about the practice of spontaneous writing and why writers like James Joyce, Gertrude Stein and Jack Kerouac all used spontaneous methods to unlock the mysterious depths of wisdom that abide below the level of consciousness.
