Infinite Awareness
An Interview with Marjorie Woollacott

June 29, 2018

Interview by
Joanna Harcourt-Smith

In this week’s episode Marjorie Woollacott speaks with Joanna about: consciousness beyond the brain; an ecstatic lightning to the heart; bridging the scientific and the mystic; the spontaneous unfolding of kundalini energy; William James and the depathologization of spiritual experiences; the link between psychedelics and meditation; two different ways of knowing reality through the brain hemispheres; sharing the hoy and bliss at the heart of who we really are; Kashmir Shaivism and the consciousness in everything; joyous communication with the consciousness in Nature; the continuity of consciousness across lifetimes.

Marjorie Hines Woollacott, PhD, has been a neuroscience professor at the University of Oregon for more than three decades and a meditator for almost four. She has also a master’s degree in Asian Studies, which she began on a teaching sabbatical and completed at the UO while a full-time professor. Her master’s thesis was the foundation for her latest book, Infinite Awareness: The Awakening of a Scientific Mind, which is both a scientist’s memoir and a research survey on human consciousness.
