Holding Sacred Space: Honoring the Subtle Ecologies of the Spiritual Emergence Process by Michelle Anne Hobart is now available for your reading pleasure! What a treasure. My work on Re-Visioning Saturn made its way into this book. It is a privilege to call Michelle a trusted colleague and wonderful friend. Check her out!
This is a seminal work for the fields of psychology, spiritual emergence, and the healing arts. As a psychotherapist, astrologer, and teacher, I experienced on every page a deep sense of connection to the sacred healing journey that Michelle so lucidly describes with heartfelt clarity, deep compassion, and piercing insight. I would like all of my students to read Holding Sacred Space, both for their personal growth, evolution, and healing, as well as for their work as healing practitioners. While transmitting a mind and heart expanding vision, this book remains deeply relatable and invitingly accessible. The generosity of spirit that Michelle exemplifies, in her being and through this work, helps to light the path for the rest of us upon its way.

LSD and the Mind of the Universe: Diamonds from Heaven
In this talk Chris Bache will share some of the boundaries crossed and the lessons learned in his 20-year psychedelic journey reported in his forthcoming book LSD and the Mind of the Universe (November, 2019). 73 high dose LSD sessions conducted between 1979-1999 became the philosophical adventure of a lifetime, but one that he had to keep largely hidden from his colleagues and society. Now that psychedelic sacraments are returning to legitimate scientific and academic discourse, Professor Bache can reveal the story of his extraordinary pilgrimage into the mind of the cosmos, the trials he faced, and the sublime intimacy with the Divine that opened.
Christopher M. Bache is professor emeritus in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Youngstown State University where he taught for 33 years. He is also adjunct faculty at the California Institute of Integral Studies and a Fellow at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. An award-winning teacher and international speaker, Chris’ work explores the philosophical implications of non-ordinary states of consciousness, especially psychedelic states. Chris has written four books translated into six languages: Lifecycles – a study of reincarnation in light of contemporary consciousness research; Dark Night, Early Dawn – a pioneering work in psychedelic philosophy and collective consciousness; and The Living Classroom, an exploration of teaching and collective fields of consciousness. His new book is LSD and the Mind of the Universe: Diamonds from Heaven.
Chris is a dear and beloved teacher of ours. For those of you who do not yet know his work, you can check out his books mentioned above. I highly recommend reading all of them. Dark Night Early Dawn was a key book that shaped my cosmology along with Lifecycles. The Living Classroom is a must read for all teachers who practice in a transpersonal pedagogy, upon which my teaching style and approach is based.
