That ‘strange’ Experience

Posted on the 15 November 2012 by Macnelliebus1 @macnelliebus

If you came to our October event with Jules Evans or have read his excellent book ‘Philosophy for Life and Other Dangerous Situations’, you’ll know that towards the end of his book on using reason and Stoic philosophy in particular to overcome emotional and behavioural difficulties, he describes an almost mystical experience following a skiing accident.

How does this non thinking, stripped away experience square with his enthusiasm for a Socratic, CBT based approach?  Can the two co-exist?

In a personal and eloquent piece on his weekly blog, he explores the answers to those questions.  You can read it here -> An Encounter with the Mountain King
