    The Creative Trance & the Trickster with Dr. Tobi Zausner & Dr. Stan Krippner

    The Creative Trance & the Trickster with Dr. Tobi Zausner & Dr. Stan Krippner

    Have you ever wondered just what makes the creative act special? Is it a confluence of events and timing, or is it a special state, a trance state, that is demarcated from ordinary time? This episode of the Psychology Talk Podcast takes a deep dive conversation on the creative trance and the trickster.

    Dr. Tobi Zausner is a research psychologist, a clinician in private practice, and an
    award-winning visual artist with works in major museums and in private collections
    around the world. Dr. Zausner writes and lectures widely on psychology and human
    potential at academic conferences and charitable events, as well as teaching in graduate programs.

    Dr. Krippner has published numerous papers, book chapters and books. He is a professor at the California Institute of Integral Studies. He has lectured and published widely on human potential, parapsychology and transpersonal psychology, indigenous healing, and humanistic psychology. Dr. Zausner is the author of the new book, The Creative Trance. Dr. Krippner is the author of a paper entitled, Trance & the Trickster. He also has an upcoming autobiography entitled, A Chaotic Life.

    There is a hegemony of waking consciousness in the western mindset that has eclipsed the natural inner landscape of revery and imagination that we still bump up against with indigenous cultures, and that the arts. The Creative Trance & the Trickster work outside the bounds of “normal time and space” and bring us all back to our roots in the as creatures rooted in the earth and capable of imaginal life.

    Sleep Disorders on Trial: Dr. Brent Willock on the Wrongful Conviction of Oscar Pistorius

    Sleep Disorders on Trial: Dr. Brent Willock on the Wrongful Conviction of Oscar Pistorius

    On this episode of the psychology Talk Podcast, our guest Dr. Brent Willock takes us on an unprecedented rollercoaster as he discusses his latest book, "The Wrongful Conviction of Oscar Pistorius."

    Brent Willock earned his doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Michigan. After several years on staff in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Michigan Medical Center, he relocated to Toronto to become Chief Psychologist at the university-affiliated C.M. Hincks Treatment Center. He was Adjunct Faculty, York University, Associate Faculty Member, School of Graduate Studies, University of Toronto, and taught at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.

    Prepare to be captivated by a narrative that unravels the complexities of the human mind, law, and justice. With Dr. Willock's expert, psychological analysis, we navigate the intricacies of this gripping story that challenges our understanding of guilt, innocence, sleep, and the capacity of the human mind for dissociation.

    Dr. Willock explores the Pistorius case through the eyes of neuroscience and psychology. He also provides case law example from the Parks case in Canada from the 1980s, a similar murder trial. This episode, laike his book, is likely to be controversial, but also extremely informative regarding the issues at hand in the Pistorius case, and gives credence to an alternative perspective.
    Dr. Willock also covers somnambulism and how it plays out over the lifespan, parasomnias, and sleep terrors. This discussion may lead you to question cultural assumptions about waking life and the idea that we are a singularity and in control of our fullness of selves.

    The Wisdom of Psychedelic Elders with Dr. Rachel Harris, PhD

    The Wisdom of Psychedelic Elders with Dr. Rachel Harris, PhD

    Join us on this episode of The Psychology Talk Podcast as we delve into the extraordinary realm of entheogens and the wisdom they hold. Once confined to counterculture circles, the use of psychedelics is now inching closer to the mainstream, with millions of Americans having experienced their transformative effects.

    Our guest, acclaimed author and researcher Rachel Harris, PhD, sheds light on the evolving landscape of psychedelic exploration and the potential loss of invaluable knowledge as legal and medical institutions embrace these powerful medicines.

    In her latest book, "Swimming in the Sacred: Wisdom from the Psychedelic Underground," released on May 9, 2023, Harris presents an illuminating retrospective of psychedelics' last fifty years. Drawing from in-depth interviews with female elders who have served as guides in the underground psychedelic community, Harris uncovers the hidden insights, healing potential, and spiritual growth cultivated through sacred entheogenic journeys.

    While current psychedelic research focuses on therapeutic applications involving limited counseling sessions, Harris emphasizes the need to honor the hard-earned knowledge amassed by seasoned guides. She highlights the disparity between research protocols and the best practices developed over decades of underground work, urging us not to overlook the invaluable wisdom gained through these experiences.

    Dr. Rachel Harris brings a wealth of expertise to the conversation. With a Ph.D. in psychology and over four decades of private practice, she also spent ten years in an academic research department, publishing numerous scientific studies and receiving recognition such as the National Institutes of Health New Investigator's Award.

    Splitting her time between a serene island in Maine and the vibrant San Francisco Bay Area, Harris has become a prominent voice in the field of psychedelics.
