IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ONLINE CLASSES: 
None of my online classes have any on-campus requirement (initial meeting) - NONE, NEVER. Disregard any printed notices that tell you otherwise. (Hybrid classes, naturally, have an on-campus requirement.) 

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR ON-CAMPUS CLASSES:
All my on-campus classes have REQUIRED web components. All important information will be communicated via webpage or e-mail and all exams will be taken online. The classroom will provide training for using the required web component - so, not to worry. However, if you do not feel comfortable using the computer or our web platform CANVAS, then please select an alternate section. Using the web component will give you important computer skills that will benefit your work as a student and employee for years to come; you will notice that your level of comfort with computer will increase as the semester progresses. These classes provide a natural step toward taking classes that are taught solely online. Student feedback shows that the vast majority find it helpful and stress reducing to have the required online components - it makes life easier.


My Particular Interests in Psychology (see also Bio and Info tabs)
My classes generally highlight important cross-cultural issues, esp. Psych 35, Psych 5 and Psych 7. If you are interested in pursuing these issues in greater depth you may want to consider, for example, the AMCS major at Sonoma State (esp. if you would like to go into K-12 teaching via the AMCS major teaching pathway). Prof. Christina Baker is the lead faculty of the Teaching Pathway. Please feel free to discuss options with me during my office hour or via e-mail. Additionally, I focus very much on recent neurobiological research and the impact of our social worlds.


Class pages are available on the first day of class.

HOW TO ACCESS CANVAS: 

--- Go to www.santarosa.edu
--- Click on "Online Learning" (under "Portals" in the middle of the page)

To request to be added to online classes, please see date above. Earlier and later requests will be disregarded. You will hear back within seven days. I generally have more requests than class seats in my online classes. Your chances of adding are consequently not assured. Make sure to explore alternatives. When I can I usually add a fair number of students depending on needs.

If you are wait listed for one of my online classes then you will be in. No need to request an add code in that case. 


ADDING ON-CAMPUS CLASSES, INCLUDING HYBRID CLASSES: 
You must show up for the first two classes. Your chances to add are generally good as long as you show up.


PHONE MESSAGES 
E-mail is my preferred mode of communication. Phone messages left during break times will be answered once the semester is in session again. You may, however, always attempt to contact me via e-mail.

In recent years I have been involved in interdisciplinary work with indigenous peoples as part of my practice of socially engaged spirituality. My theoretical work is an attempt to transgress the established boundaries of nature, culture, and gender, and to walk in the spaces between and across disciplinary territories exploring the transformative dimensions of current and traditional thought and practice. I received my education at the University of Hamburg in Germany and am an Executive Editor of ReVision -- Journal of Consciousness and Transformation. My past positions include, Dean of Faculty and Vice President of Academic Affairs at Saybrook Institute in San Francisco; Academic Dean, of the Integral Studies Program and of the East-West Psychology Program and I was co-director of the PhD program for Traditional Knowledge at the California Institute of Integral Studies. I have (co)written several books and contributed extensively to journals, handbooks, readers, and more popular venues. Towards a Person-Centered Resolution of Intercultural Conflicts (1980) is the title of one of my books. After receiving my doctorate in clinical psychology at the University of Hamburg, Germany, and working for some years in private practice, I relocated to San Francisco to teach at Saybrook Institute Graduate School. I have edited special ReVision issues on: Peace and Identity; Paradigmatic Challenges; Culture and Ways of Knowing; Indigenous Science; and Transformative Learning. Recently I have written about ethnoautobiography, dissociation, healing and cosmology, Ken Wilber, trance, the history of sense alienation in euro-centered cultures, my travels in Sapmi (Lappland), the bear in circumpolar stories, the obligations of a white man, ancestral conversations, and violence against indigenous peoples. 

Professional Areas of Interest: 

Growing up in West Germany shortly after World War II, I was painfully aware of the pervasive denials of the Shoah (German genocide against Jews). I observed the profound impact of these silences on education, psychotherapy, and narratives of identity in general. Similar silences exert a continuing power in this country. Deconstruction of Whiteness, decolonization, confrontation with cultural shadow material - these are among my primary professional interests.

My teaching and writing focuses on a decolonizing discourse of Whiteness, the history of modernist White self-constructions, and the critical reconstruction of European indigenous layers. I hope that out of the tears about the grievous things our ancestors have suffered and committed, amidst all the achievements, there will arise shared laughter and appreciation as the joy of the local truth ceases to be a call for dominance, and as people enjoy and appreciate each other's capacity for cross-cultural learning. Facing collective shadow material, the inclusion of the dark and light seem to prevent us from superficial nostalgia and dissociated romanticism in relation to any culture, and help us to move into the future through our connections with ancestral cultural roots. The remembrance of the web of stories that create who we are; the connection with the surrounding lands, community, and cultural history; the philosophical reflection upon our cultural premises; the dialogue of the various sciences with local knowledge and narratives, i.e. indigenous science these seem to be ways to open an avenue for rich multicultural inquiry and learning as well as the resolution of cultural wounds and the exploration of the liberating potential of ethnic constructions. My work is dedicated to diverse learning environments that elicit the teachers' and students' potentials through personal and scholarly inquiry for the sake of the communities to which they will dedicate their professional lives.

Autobiographical writing, ethnoautobiography is an approach I am using with students to help them navigate the processes of personal and cultural ethnic narratives. Students generally design co-operative inquiries to engage in a generative integration of curricular content with personal questions and critical reflections. For students of European descent the deconstruction of Whiteness and the recovery of ancestral roots requires not only the confrontation with cultural shadow material (such as genocide, racism, white privilege, inequality, bipolar gender construction) but also the remembrance of the earliest historical beginnings of supremacist self constructions. The confrontation with ancestral ethnic connections by White settlers (Euro-Americans) calls for a process of critical inquiry distinct from ethnic renewal and affirmation in Indigenous populations. The next section describes what I think about Indigenous traditions, shamans, and shamanism.

Indigenous Traditions, Shamanism, and More …

 

The words ‘shaman’ and ‘shamanism’ are Western anthropological terms based on words taken from one specific tradition and then abstracted and generalized.  Šaman is an appropriate term for the Siberian Evenki (Tungus) people.  It is not the term the European Sámi people use for their healers and seers (noaidi), it is not the term the Yoruba people use (babalawo), it is not the term the Hawaiians use (kahuna); and various Native American tribes use different terms for their healers, seers, and holy people.  And it is also not the term the Old Norse used before Christianization (volva and seiðman).  Each Indigenous culture has one or more specific terms for the specialists in their healing traditions.  This term is not shaman, except when it is šaman among the Evenki.  Shaman and shamanism are not Indigenous terms, they come out of the context of Western sciences that have grappled for a long time with Indigenous specialists who were often given pathological labels, such as schizophrenic.  Western scientists frequently failed to fully appreciate the Indigenous context that these specialists are a part of.

 

Given the history of incomprehension among many Western scientists, the establishment of shamanism conferences by Ruth-Inge Heinze and Mihály Hoppál about thirty years ago is significant.  These conferences became a place where academics, practitioners, and Indigenous specialists would gather to understand and practice the life affirming work of shamans.  This was very important in overcoming prejudicial and racist dismissals of Indigenous specialists and their practices.  These conferences were part of establishing shamanism as a serious field of study or specialty in anthropology, psychology, and other disciplines.  Today we can say that this task has been largely accomplished.

 

Ruth-Inge Heinze defined shamans as specialists who (1) access alternate states of consciousness at will, (2) fulfill needs of their community which otherwise are not met, and (3) are mediators between the sacred and the profane (i.e., encode ineffable messages).  The context in which shamans historically have worked is that of their Indigenous communities.  However, the Indigenous context of shamanism was dramatically altered through the history of conquest, colonization, genocide, racist science, and appropriation.  Today some Indigenous traditions and individuals feel entirely comfortable using the term ‘shaman’ for their healing specialists; others feel very uncomfortable with it; and some traditions and Indigenous individuals don’t particularly care.  The term is cherished in Mongolia, for example, and shamanism as the state religion is part of the re-assertion of their national identity; by contrast, many Native Americans do not like to use the term.

 

We all have indigenous roots and we all have ancestors who were part of traditions that used shamanism. Shamanic work is a human potential.  When we grow up indigenous, we become familiar with what our own tradition has to offer.  When we grow up non-indigenous, then we need to find a place for our calling, our potentials, and our gifts; this is often not easy. Indigenous people are intimately woven into their traditions, communities, and ecologies.  Non-indigenous people have grown up in Western worlds that thrive on the colonial and supremacist separation from each other (individualism) and our natural world, the separation from the elemental forces of earth, water, air and light.  Non-indigenous shamanic practitioners do not have a natural community, their community emerges from the market place which encourages charismatic inflation and creates various traps and challenges.  A shamanic practitioner is not an Indigenous shaman.  Both shamanic practitioners and shamans can be very powerful. Acknowledging the differences in cultural context means honoring Indigenous shamanic traditions.

 

When we are dedicating ourselves to understanding the shamanic practices of Indigenous traditions or learning and practicing them, then we need to dedicate ourselves not just to personal healing of individual suffering, but also to the healing of the history of the ongoing destruction of and threat to Indigenous peoples.  If we want to understand shamanism we also need to understand its Indigenous context and history;. healing history is shamanism in action.  Remembering our own specific indigenous roots is healing work.

 

When existential emergencies show overwhelming dimensions, when politicians lose the confidence of their constituency, when priests do not consider the needs of their community, when psychotherapists and physicians treat symptoms and not their patients, because they don’t have the time or feel constrained by “scientific” considerations, when underlying imbalances in an individual’s physical, emotional, mental, social, moral, and spiritual levels remain unattended, then the search for spiritual help begins and will even produce new shamanic practitioners and new shamanic traditions may emerge.

Shamanism is very much alive today.  It has stayed accessible whether we look without or within.  Shamans and shamanic practitioners are called to fulfill vital roles.  They heal by removing imbalances and restoring the connection between the sacred and the secular; they help to keep the earth in balance and help humans to walk in balance.  They continue to ritualize the process of transformation.

The Society and the Conference I am working with are dedicated to honoring and celebrating Indigenous traditions and their healing specialists.  They welcome the work of all shamanic practitioners who have dedicated themselves to remembering their ancestral roots; to learning from Indigenous traditions; and to healing a history that continues to be destructive of Indigenous knowledge and practices.  Balancing ourselves, balancing ourselves in our communities, and balancing ourselves in our ecologies, is the work of shamans and shamanic practitioners in order to protect earth, water, air, and light, in order to honor Life.  They are dedicated to address the transformation of this old paradigm,  while holding the world of healing with respect, and celebrating  all of us who come together to share knowledge, experience, and vision with integrity.
