Consciousness: Altered States Ancient & Modern: Recently an exhibit in a major L.A. museum called attention to the nature and creative value of Ecstasy (exalted altered states of Consciousness). The pivotal discovery that resulted in a "revolution of consciousness" was made by the Swiss chemist Dr. Albert Hofmann at Sandoz Laboratories on April 16, 1943. The substance became known as LSD-25, and joins an extensive list of substances used throughout the ages to assist in Vision, Rapture and Magic.
This collection of lectures by Dr. Hoeller explores non-ordinary states of consciousness and their practice and value in ecstasy and Gnosis. The lecture on Dr. Albert Hofmann was given as a tribute to his 100th birthday, recently celebrated in Basel, Switzerland.
Since exalted states of consciousness were always of interest to Gnostics, this collection of lectures salutes Dr. Hofmann and investigates his and other known "doors of perception".
Purchase Options: The complete set on MP3 CD-Rom (via air mail), or one or any number of lectures for immediate download. (Note that the CD album also includes several "bonus lectures" introducing other subjects in our catalog. See the album description for details.)
