New Thinking Allowed: The Erotic and Esoteric in Religion with Jeffrey J. Kripal?

"Jeffrey John Kripal is the J. Newton Rayzor Professor of Philosophy and Religious Thought and former chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Rice University in Houston, Texas.
Here he describes his intellectual journey starting with the study of eroticism in religion and leading him into the study and appreciation of the esoteric or paranormal.
His early research focused on homoeroticism in the life of the nineteenth century Hindu saint, Ramakrishna.
In India, he experienced a profound state of consciousness associated with the goddess Kali.
Later he worked with Whitley Strieber, a UFO contactee, and describes a striking correspondence between Strieber's experience of the Visitors -- and his understanding of Hindu goddesses."


  1. Thank you for every post, I read them all. They resonate. I can't follow the links well because of my connection but I read the authors enough to get the drift. Thanks again from the other side of the earth.

  2. You are resonating like a 17 Hertz wave my friend.

  3. The links in this post are mainly to each of Jeff's books at Amazon, his author page at Amazon, and Whitley's Wiki page.
    Just in case readers don't know who these guys are and what they have written.
    Cheers Delorus.
    I've got about 100 posts I want to write at the moment and that isn't an exaggeration.
    It's just getting the time to write them and get the pictures and links for the posts that's the problem.
    But I'll get there, or die trying, while the posts to write keep multiplying like rabbits ... in which case I will never get there I guess:-)
