Non-ordinary consciousness (NOC)

February 06, 2017 - 0 Comments

NOC can be induced with the use of substances and techniques. There is ample evidence for this. What this “method” does not provide, however, is transformation of the bases in consciousness that were formed from earliest days. What lies at the base of consciousness is inextricably woven into every aspect of a human being. Understanding the roots of such requires nurturing awareness, and the skilful use of inner work practices, including reflective awareness practice, a process oriented perspective, and the judicial use of methods (whatever they may happen to be) that re-initiate developmental processes that have been compromised and arrested at an early stage and that are now solidified. For the bases of consciousness to transform, it requires a persistent and skilful attention to inner and relational dynamics that manifest every moment. Thus every moment presents an opportunity for us to intervene and transform.
