Life After Dogma YouTube Channel: Videos on various topics related to healing religious trauma and spirituality.

“Many religions claim to provide mystical union, but they fail to deliver anything more than emotionalism, hype, and manipulation. Mainstream Western secular philosophy — and many in science who embrace it — have reacted to religious abuses by dismissing or avoiding non-ordinary and expanded states of consciousness and their implications for healing and human potential. This is beginning to change as scientists, Eastern mystics, shamans, and healers are coming together to research and apply the healing and transformational benefits of mystical experiences and to explore their implications for the nature of reality. In this talk, we will examine how to explore mystical spirituality and stay grounded in rationality.”
