THE QUEST FOR FREEDOM

"Ordinary Habits, Extraordinary Lives," The Maria Bailey Show

Maria Bailey: "Three years ago, I saw this man (Jorge Ferrer) stand out in a lineup of intellectuals, alive and intriguing. He seemed so interesting to me, carrying a mystery that draws you in, and a force to be reckoned with."

MONOGAMY, POLYAMORY, AND INTIMATE RELATIONSHIPS

Interview by Jeffrey Mishlove for NEW THINKING ALLOWED

Jeffrey Mishlove: "Jorge Ferrer shows that the same pluralistic approach that he takes toward mystical paths can also be applied in the arena of human relationships. He describes mainstream western culture as 'mononormative'-- meaning that sexual monogamy is the primary standard. However, he acknowledges that this leads to various complications -- particularly widespread adultery. A variety of other relationship models also exist including polyamory, serial monogamy, open marriages, and even modes beyond the monogamy/polyamory binary."

EMBODIED SPIRITUALITY

Interview by Jeffrey Mishlove for NEW THINKING ALLOWED

Jeffrey Mishlove: "Jorge Ferrer maintains that many spiritual seekers engage in one-sided approaches that do not incorporate an appreciation of the human body. In fact, certain traditions disparage the body as being animalistic and unspiritual. He advocates a revised version of the Bodhisatva Vow (for Buddhists and non-Buddhists) that emphasizes the enlightenment of all parts of the self -- as well as all sentient beings. He also discusses the role of sexual intimacy in spiritual practice."

THE EXISTENCE OF SPIRITUAL ENTITIES

Interview by Jeffrey Mishlove for NEW THINKING ALLOWED

Jeffrey Mishlove: "Jorge Ferrer notes that many people have reported contacts with spiritual entities of both a positive and negative nature. He describes several of his own experiences. He also acknowledges the difficulty in determining if these experiences involve autonomous entities, independent of his own consciousness. He advocates a post-colonial research approach in which scientists will work together as equals with indigenous shamans and other experiencers."

DOCUMENTARY: POSTCOLONIAL KNOWLEDGE

Interviews with Jorge Ferrer, Charles Tart, Glenn Hartelius, and Others

COMPARATIVE MYSTICISM

Interview by Jeffrey Mishlove for NEW THINKING ALLOWED

In this wide-ranging conversation, Jorge and Jeff share their memories and reflections about a wide range of mystical paths. The discussion focuses on the relative merits of following set instructions from a guru to seek mystical insights. Another perspective come from the literature concerning spontaneous awakening of consciousness. Jorge explains why he believes that the mystics of many different traditions often feel closer to each other than they are with the more conservative, orthodox members of their own faith community.
