Depression

Depression | Mind Candy  { interdimensionally } Cubed... It's SO yesterday to be a Square | Scoop.it

As a soul-centred psychiatric therapist, I am disturbed that so many people are being seduced into viewing the often valuable and necessary sufferings of soul, which include most experiences of depression, as 'mental illness'. In other words, sufferers of depression are often forced to endure, in addition to their pain and energy loss, the stigma of being told that they're 'ill', hence that their depression is a problem to be eliminated, or that it has no value, meaning, or purpose.

Ecopsychology - For People Who Think Social Psychology Is Too Credible

Ecopsychology - For People Who Think Social Psychology Is Too Credible | Mind Candy  { interdimensionally } Cubed... It's SO yesterday to be a Square | Scoop.it
If only there were a field that examines the spiritual, therapeutic and psychological aspects of human-nature relationships, I'd abandon my graduate studies in Theoretical Phys Ed and embrace this new discipline instead.Luckily, there is.

#Synchronicity: The Bridge between Matter and Mind

True synchronicities are more than mere chance occurrences. They are characterized by a sense of meaning and numinousness. They provide a bridge between inner and outer worlds, between our private thoughts and external, objective realities. To distinguish synchronicities from mere chance occurrences Carl Jung stressed that they must always involve "meaningful coincidence" that lie beyond any explanation involving causal links and connections. 

 

Synchronicities also act as markers in time, moments of transformation within a life that occur in chairos. Thus, while causality ties us to our past, synchronicities can link us to our future. One notable encounter took place between Carl Jung and the Wolfgang Pauli. This meeting of people from two very different worlds will be explored during the course, including the way it led to Pauli’s remarkable series of dreams which caused him to explore the relationship between psyche and matter and believe that the time was at hand for the "resurrection of spirit” within the world of matter.

Why morality divides us.

Why morality divides us. | Mind Candy  { interdimensionally } Cubed... It's SO yesterday to be a Square | Scoop.it

Why can’t we accept differences in moral opinion the same way we readily accept differences in other opinions like music preference? What makes moral attitudes so different and divisive?

Why Did We Invent Karma?

Why Did We Invent Karma? | Mind Candy  { interdimensionally } Cubed... It's SO yesterday to be a Square | Scoop.it

Is there something about karma that makes it appealing to individuals in specific moments of their lives? A new study by Benjamin Converse, Jane Risen, and Travis Carter suggests that there is. In a series of experiments they found evidence to support the idea that when people face an important outcome that’s out of their control, they believe that being charitable can somehow induce a positive outcome.
