Esalen: America and the Religion of No Religion

By Jeffrey J. Frontispiece: Hieronymus Bosch c. Museo del Prado, Madrid, Spain. There is not the slightest difference between the world and nirvana. There is not the slightest difference between nirvana and the world.

A truly astonishing story of spiritual inspiration, global vision, political adventure, and delightful humor, and just at the right time. A genuinely hopeful vision of what we yet could be in the mirror of what we have been. Here—literally on the western edge of the North American continent—the European enlightenment meets Asian spirituality, Einstein confronts Walt Whitman, Calvinism takes on mysticism, and secularism encounters the divine. Its thinkers formed the leading edge of American culture for decades. Here was ground zero of the s social revolution: the sweaty hot-tub commingling of free love, tantric yoga, Buddhist meditation and Gestalt therapy—as well as the academy for the propagation of the human-potential movement. Thompson felt the pull of the place. Now scholar Jeffrey Kripal has produced the first all-encompassing history of Esalen: its intellectual, social, personal, literary and spiritual passages.

Esalen: America and the Religion of No Religion

People of a certain age will remember Esalen, the famous or infamous spa in Big Sur on the California coast, founded in the s as a center of the human potential movement. Both descriptions are justified, it turns out. This reviewer also spent a weekend at Esalen in the early s, with the novelist Alison Lurie, who was researching it. These short visits were meant to provide a sampling of the therapies then on offer — encounter groups and body work mostly involving a sort of nude round-robin massage stick in my memory, along with rather good food, emphasizing groats and the like. It was terrific fun, and it was there, clambering down the rickety wooden steps to the glorious beach below, that we surprised an elderly, naked Henry Miller, who modestly put his hat over his lap at the approach of two equally embarrassed ladies with beach bags and towels.

DOI: Jeffrey J. Kripal, Esalen. Whitley Strieber and Jeffrey J. Newton Rayzor professor of religion at Rice University has crafted an intellectually engaging story of the most famous institute of alternative culture in the world. Surrounded by an air of mystery and an aura of mysticism, Esalen Center has too often been branded a New Age phenomenon. It is also the birthplace of a completely new understanding of Christianity and its limits, the Utopian merger of science and mysticism, and the all-encompassing gateway to the unconventional alternative spirituality.

Who are the "Nones"? What does humanism say about race, religion and popular culture? How do race, religion and popular culture inform and affect humanism? The demographics of the United States are changing, marked most profoundly by the religiously unaffiliated, or what we have to come to call the "Nones". Spread across generations in the United States, this group encompasses a wide range of philosophical and ideological perspectives, from some in line with various forms of theism to those who are atheistic, and all sorts of combinations in between.

Review of Esalen: America and the Religion of No Religion by Jeffrey J. Kripal

Вы на чуть-чуть опоздали.  - Ее слова словно повисли в воздухе. Все-таки он опоздал. Плечи Беккера обмякли.

Стратмор вдруг увидел шанс выиграть на двух фронтах сразу, осуществить две мечты, а не одну. В шесть тридцать в то утро он позвонил Дэвиду Беккеру. ГЛАВА 97 Фонтейн стремительно вбежал в комнату для заседаний. Бринкерхофф и Мидж последовали за .

Внутри клубились тучи черного дыма. Все трое как завороженные смотрели на это зрелище, не лишенное какой-то потусторонней величественности. Фонтейн словно окаменел.

 - Коммандер! - повторила.  - Коммандер. Внезапно Сьюзан вспомнила, что он должен быть в лаборатории систем безопасности. Она кружила по пустому кабинету, все еще не преодолев ужас, который вызвало у нее общение с Хейлом. Надо выбираться из шифровалки.
