Channeling and Creativity Lecture: Jung Center, Houston

Channeling and Creativity - LECTURE

Can comparisons between channeling and creativity give greater insight into both types of phenomena? Is there potential therapeutic value in wider adoption of techniques from both channelers and artists? We will explore different approaches to evaluating channeling, including historical-factual, psychological, spiritual, and paranormal. Drawing upon examples from history and literature, such as Jack Kerouac’s process for writing On the Road, and the instructor’s own experiences as a seer-in-training under her mother Elizabeth Clare Prophet, a “messenger” for “ascended masters,” we will evaluate similarities and differences between artists and mystics. We will also sift through the plethora of neuroscientific claims about creativity and evaluate techniques for stimulating creative thinking in art and life.

Evolution and Secular Spirituality: From the Modern to the Metamodern

Evolution and Secular Spirituality: From the Modern to the Metamodern

A joint presentation of PhD research by Erin Prophet and Linda Ceriello, recent graduates of Rice University. The event is free and open to the public.

Evolution, Sex, and Self-Transcendence
Erin Prophet

How did “evolution” become associated with self-improvement and transcendence? The association was first made during the nineteenth century immediately after the publication of Darwin’s Origin of Species. Learn how this narrative developed and how evolution as self-improvement became a secularized way to talk about salvation. Meet the thinkers who shaped the discourse, including Alfred Russel Wallace, Helena Blavatsky, and Frederic W.H. Myers. Find out the different ways evolutionary thinkers thought about sex, and how evolution became associated with healing, therapy and the development of psychic talents.

Metamodern Mysticisms: Narrative Encounters with Contemporary Western Secular Spiritualities
Linda C. Ceriello

Have you noticed that it seems “normal” to be an oddball lately? That there is a certain cultural valuing of unusual experiences and of the “weird?” At the same time, popular culture shows us more portrayals of the mystical and supernatural than ever, and ordinary people as well as celebrities admit more freely to having spiritual experiences. My doctoral work addresses spirituality and the normalizing of the non-normal. I apply a framework of “metamodernism” to explain the rise of rogue spiritual movements such as the spiritual-but-not-religious and the cultural shifts of the “millennial period,” with its preferencing of this-worldly concerns over transcendence, and the framing of the awesome as ordinary and vice versa.

Channeling and Creativity

As both a former "channeler" and award-nominated author (Barnes and Noble's Discover Great New Writers award), I will give insights from my own experience as well as neurocognitive research on the similarities and differences in the processes of writing, art and "channeling," offering techniques for both cultural creatives and sensitives to understand their gifts and deepen their approach.

International Cultic Studies Association Conference: Panel on Coercive Persuasion

Church Universal and Triumphant, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, and the Gregory Mull Trial: A Review of the Coercive Persuasion Model

As part of a panel discussion, I will be presenting information on the application of coercive persuasion (and thought reform) models to Church Universal and Triumphant (CUT) during the 1986 trial of CUT v. Gregory Mull. Questions such as whether members of the group have agency and whether the church ever implemented a program of thought reform, mind control or coercive persuasion will be addressed. I will also discuss my own experience in leaving Church Universal and Triumphant as well as my experiences attending the trial and specific evidence presented. The panel will then discuss the presentation and various viewpoints and means of interpreting the material, as well as future directions for research.

Conference registration is here.

Creativity and Channeling Workshop: Jung Center, Houston

 Fountains at dusk. McGovern Centennial Gardens, Hermann Park, Houston

Fountains at dusk. McGovern Centennial Gardens, Hermann Park, Houston

Can comparisons between channeling and creativity give greater insight into both types of phenomena? Can viewing channeling as a creative process tell us something about artistic creativity? Is there potential therapeutic value in wider adoption of techniques from both channelers and artists? Can everyone “channel”? Join Erin Prophet for an experiential workshop exploring these questions and giving you tools to enhance your own practice.

Channeling describes a process of obtaining information and insight from a source perceived as external to the individual producing it. Prophet will explore different approaches to evaluating channeling, including historical-factual, psychological, spiritual, and paranormal. Students will then participate in exercises designed to promote relaxed, creative states, followed by a period of free-writing and drawing.

Channeling and Creativity

Can comparisons between channeling and creativity give greater insight into both types of phenomena? Can viewing channeling as a creative process help understand why certain material is adopted and revered while the rest is ignored? Is there potential therapeutic and self-actualizing value in wider adoption of techniques from both channelers and cultural creatives? Can everyone “channel”? Prophet will explore different approaches to evaluating channeling, including historical-factual, psychological, spiritual, and paranormal. The presentation will be enhanced with examples from history and literature, and also Prophet’s own experiences. Finally, she will examine the latest neuroscientific studies about creativity and theta waves, and conduct exercises designed to promote relaxed, creative states.

October 12: Channeling and Creativity, 6-8 p.m. Contact for location and details.

What happens when an individual “channels” or receives dictation? What can this phenomenon tell us about the nature of consciousness? Can it be therapeutic or enhance creativity? Can everyone “channel”? Prophet will explore different approaches to evaluating channeling, including historical-factual, psychological, spiritual, and paranormal. The presentation will be enhanced with examples from history and literature, and also Prophet’s own experiences as a seer in training under her mother, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, who functioned as “messenger” for "ascended masters" for more than thirty-five years. Finally, she will examine recent studies about creativity and theta waves, and take up the question of the relationship between channeling and creativity.
