Totnes Consciousness Café

In celebration of his 80th birthday, this talk will describe some of the major transitions in Max’s own journey from disconnection, and alienation – from feeling “a stranger in a strange land” – to greater connection, one-ness, and “feeling at home”. This journey included potent extraordinary experiences as well as ordinary experiences along with an in-depth scientific and philosophical study of consciousness for over 50 years. In this work he developed Reflexive Monism, an integrative Western understanding of human consciousness as one manifestation of a conscious, self-observing universe that converges closely with the non-dual Integral Vedanta of Ramakrishna, Vivekananda, and Aurobindo. In this talk he will describe one early formative mystical experience along with some of the major intellectual steps that guided his way.
