Quantum Psychology (Matt Risk)
Back in the late '60s Dr. Irving Blum (AKA: T. Leary) wrote about the 8 circuit model of human psychology which was later popularized by Robert Anton Wilson, Chris Hyatt, and other writers. This model allows us to reflect on the basic needs and drives of the Human and Trans-human aspects of our psychology and to explore and navigate these needs in order to transcend the neuroses of terrestrial consciousness and increase our Intelligence in preparation for the next inevitable stages of human evolution. Incorporating conventional psychology and mystical experience into a greater whole which shows the way forward into the post-terrestrial future. 

Playing with this useful map allows us to learn about and take care of the psychological needs that may be baulked by our neuroses, as well as to develop those faculties of mind that mystics and magikians of the past have called 'Psychic', 'Mystical', or 'Spiritual' without falling for the greatest obstacle to Illumination: Taking Ourselves Seriously.

Walking on Water (Matt Risk)
Are you plagued by emotions that are out of control? In this workshop we will learn about what it is that triggers our emotional states, why we get carried away by feelings outside of our control, and how to reprogram those triggers so that things that used to bother us lead to feelings we'd prefer to have. By employing creative use of the post-hypnotic state, we can easily learn to master our emotions, make our lives more effective, and more satisfying.

Saturday July 21, 2-5 pm, $35

Building the Astral Temple (Matt Risk)
Long ago the concept of the Astral Temple was brought forward as a means of working one's spells and making changes on the deeper levels of one's practice. An Astral Temple provides you with a work space that is accessible anywhere without the need for carrying an elaborate magickal kit with you. Simply close your eyes and relax and you can make use of your own astral temple. In this workshop we will learn how to access the powerful states of mind that allow us access into the astral, as well as techniques and considerations for building the temple, and making a home on the astral plane.
