Our Summer Schedule for 2017 will include two official meetings before we return to our normal monthly meeting on every second Saturday in the fall.
Our next meeting is on Saturday, July 8. Meeting content TBD.
Our Saturday, August 19 meeting may be of special interest to many, as Dr. Ian Wickramasekera II will present a talk summarizing his 15 years of research on empathic involvement in hypnosis entitled “The Mysteries of Hypnosis, Empathy, and the Self.”
Dr. Ian Wickramasekera teaches transpersonal counseling and psychology at Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado. Ian is a Past-President of the American Psychological Associations’ Society of Psychological Hypnosis (Division 30) and a Fellow of the Society for Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis. He is also the President-Elect of the Rocky Mountain Humanistic Counseling and Psychological Association and serves on the Executive Council for the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Society for Humanistic Psychology (Division 32). He has a lifelong fascination with topics such as Affective Neuroscience, Bon-Buddhism, Empathy, Hypnosis, Integrative Medicine, Transpersonal Psychology, and Lucid Dreaming. His research in these areas has won him a number of awards such as the Milton H. Erickson Award for Scientific Excellence from the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis and the American Psychological Association’s Early Career Contributions Award to Hypnosis award. Ian enjoys hiking, meditating, and running when he isn’t at work or reading an obscure tome of ancient lore.
