Esalen, the X-Men & You
Keynote Lectures from the 2010 ITPI Conference
Superheroes aren’t born. They’re made. That’s the good news from Jeffrey J. Kripal, professor of religious studies at Rice University and author of Authors of the Impossible: The Paranormal and the Sacred from the University of Chicago Press. In these four keynote lectures recorded at our 2010 conference, Jeff explains how in every life, there are magical moments when the world resembles a movie or a novel, and if you can “wake up” to the story unfolding, you can control its direction — and achieve the impossible. To support his thesis, Jeff talks about authors, artists, and spiritual practitioners — including the late George Leonard of ITP — who seized creative control of their lives and works. Michael Murphy, co-founder of ITP and of the Esalen Institute, joins Jeff to discuss how each of us can recognize and embrace our own paranormal powers, just as the superheroes of popular culture embrace theirs.
