The Role of Entheogens in Becoming a Whole/Healed Human Being

Catalyst Collective
3847 W. North Ave., Chicago, IL

Dr. Ajaya speaks as part of the C3 Speaker Series. We will explore how an integration of spiritual practices, psychotherapy, receiving bodywork, and using psychedelics in an optimal setting can lead to lasting and profound changes in our personality structure and our sense of well being. The use of psychedelics in combination with these other practices enhances our capicity to shed ongoing suffering and a limited sense of ourselves. Psychedelic experiences alone can lead us to a revisioning of who and what we are, but these experiences may be temporary and not integrated into our everyday lives. When entheogens are used in the context of these other ways of self discovery, a catalytic or synergistic effect can be created freeing us from non-functional patterns and leading to greater self revelation.


How To Meditate with Yoga Swami Allan Ajaya

Inner Fire Yoga
5003 University Avenue, Madison, WI

THIS IS A CLASS for beginning and experienced meditators alike. It begins with the basic principles of meditation that will assist practitioners to find the experience of peace, joy and ease of being that arise from meditation practice. Different forms of meditation will be explored, so that meditators can practice in the way that works best for each individual. Each week another step will be added in order to progress deeper into the meditative consciousness. Each class includes a guided meditation and time will be taken to answer specific questions.

ALLAN AJAYA has the unique distinction of being both a Swami in the Himalayan tradition (an ancient yoga tradition that is described as...“a tradition of the highest truth...”) and a clinical psychologist. He has taught meditation for more than 25 years with the Himalayan Institute and has written several books on meditative practices including Yoga Psychology: A Practical Guide To Meditation.
