EXTRAORDINARY AWAKENINGS with STEVE TAYLOR, PhD
“It’s ego dissolution. But it’s not just ego dissolution; it’s also the birth of a new self. It’s not just a break down, which is ego dissolution, it’s a shift up. It’s the uncovering of a deeper spiritual self which was always there but it seems to have been dormant, waiting for the opportunity to emerge.”
– Steve Taylor, PhD, describing extraordinary awakenings
Why do some people who experience the absolute worst that life has to offer respond not by breaking down but by shifting up, into a higher-functioning, awakened state, like a phoenix rising from the ashes?
Today we talk with Steve Taylor, PhD, the author of Extraordinary Awakenings: When Trauma Leads to Transformation, and other bestselling books. He is senior lecturer in psychology at Leeds Beckett University in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England; and the chair of the Transpersonal Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society. Steve’s articles and essays have been published in over 100 academic journals, magazines, and newspapers and he blogs for Scientific American and Psychology Today.
Listen in to hear how you can encourage your own spontaneous, extraordinary awakening.
