About this product
- DescriptionThis thesis addresses the question of human consciousness in its oscillation between conditioning and transcendence: the impact of cultural world views on the individual's life world and their gradual transcendence as a form of spiritual practice. At the centre of attention is a group of individuals and their unfolding life-stories as they move through a journey of transformation, seeking to explore and understand the complexity of their own consciousness. The emphasis is on the embodiment of belief systems and the individuals' inherent existential power to transcend cultural precepts. Methodologically, the study is based in phemelogical anthropology. It thus employs the first-person perspective and includes subjective personal experience as primary data.
