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.

Location: The Jung Center, Houston, Texas

Event description: 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? Prophet 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 Prophet’s own experiences as a seer in training under her mother, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, a "messenger” for "ascended masters," she will evaluate similarities and differences between artists and mystics. She will also present recent neuroscientific findings about creativity, and suggest techniques for stimulating creative thinking in art and life.

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.
Recommended reading: Channeling, Jon Klimo; On the Road, Jack Kerouac

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.
