The Luminous Mind of Jeffrey Kripal

If you dismiss the humanities, you dismiss the prophets among you...
Perhaps no other contemporary figure’s ideas are brought up more in WMiT? than Dr. Jeffrey Kripal. His work is the stuff which fuels much of my thinking about the paranormal, the supernatural and extraordinary experience. Always with a comparative eye, Dr. Kripal not only looks into the past and the present, but also has his gaze fixed on the future; on what could be awaiting us if we only allow ourselves to tell each other the stories of what we experience.

My esteemed guest for this episode is the associate Dean of the school of Humanities and hold the J. Newton Rayzor chair in Philosophy and Religious Thought at Rice University in Houston Texas. He is the Associate Director of the Center for Theory and Research at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, where he also serves as Chair of the Board. He is also the author of several books, many of which are required reading.
