The Paradoxes of Ethical Mysticism | Jay Michaelson and Mike Morrell

at The Shift Network's Mystics Summit

More Info / Registration

Deep mystical practice, especially in extended periods, often engenders powerful peak experiences of various types.  Yet ethical commitments to meaningfully reduce suffering — for oneself and especially for others — requires a holding lightly of these experiences, intuitions, and insights.  Drawing on Biblical, Kabbalistic, Dharmic, and contemporary entheogenic sources, we will explore the dance between these poles as part of the contemporary mystic quest.

In this unique discussion, part of The Shift Network’s Mystics Summit 2022, Jay Michaelson and Mike Morrell explore the pitfalls and opportunities of deep contemplative practice in the context of contemporary justice and environmental work.
