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.
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.
