Some experiences forever change the very foundations of how we understand ourselves and the world. In this intimate conversation we'll explore NOTEs (non-ordinary transcendent experiences)--such as near-death experiences, spiritual awakening, religious experience, revelation, and more--that often challenge what we believe. Such experiences can be particularly challenging for those who follow a faith path. Stories from Nicole's doctoral research into the aftereffects of life-changing NOTEs and personality will be shared.
Flow—that exhilarating state of being that’s simultaneously transcendent and immanent. It demands our total moment-to-moment involvement with aplomb as well as a sense of joyful ease. Latest research findings suggest flow is also intimately linked to typology, that is, the ways our life-force energy innately moves and evolves.
This interactive talk is part of the AusAPT National Conference, which is open to the public and designed for anyone with an interest in psychological type.
There is a revolution taking place. The farthest reaches of human experience have never been more accessible than they are today, and it’s transforming the way we live, love, and lead. As ordinary people increasingly tap into extraordinary experiences and abilities, how we as a species respond to current problems—from personal to planetary—is also evolving. Typology plays an important role in this shifting collective consciousness as each contributor’s genius shines through and adds to the diversity of solutions and ways of being. Together, we’re expanding the fundamentals of what it is to be human and what we may co-create.
The Australian Association for Psychological Type (AusAPT) Conference brings together 22 distinguished speakers and presenters from across the wide world of personality type: practitioners, writers, researchers, and more.
This presentation shares experiencer stories and key findings from doctoral research that explored if and how personality plays a role in life-changing NOTEs (non-ordinary transcendent experiences), their aftereffects, and the meaning experiencers make of them. Examples of NOTEs include NDEs, NDLEs, kundalini awakenings, out-of-body experiences, revelation, divine encounters, paranormal experiences, psychedelic experiences, spiritual crises, and other STEs. The findings suggest there are transcendent dimensions to personality that are “switched on” or enhanced by profound NOTEs. These transcendent dimensions provide indications of the types of gifts experiencers come to know through their experience(s), often significantly shaping their life after their experience(s) and may eventually become gifts they choose to share with others.
Explore the aftereffects & gifts of near-death and other extraordinary experiences with over 80 speakers, including pioneers in the field of NDE studies. IANDS is the world’s most reliable source of information on NDEs.
When Nicole was 14 years old she had a near-death experience by drowning whilst white water rafting in New Zealand. In the following 6 months she lost three family members, including her father, all at separate times. She later came to understand these death experiences as a type of initiation into the non-ordinary realms. Although she was far too young at the time to understand and process all that grief, it nonetheless became a formative time and key to experiences that followed. Since that time Nicole has spent over two decades exploring other realities, human potential and how ordinary people deal with extraordinary experiences.
