James Fadiman

An Enlightenment Interview with Professor Jim Fadiman

I haven't read this yet, but here's a snippet I grabbed from near the beginning:
e.com: In fact, I once heard you refer to yourself as the "Forrest Gump of the consciousness movement." Do you think that's a fair description?

Fadiman: It's a parody of myself because I have been doing things in all of these areas. Maslow basically stayed within formal psychology, and I didn't, Ram Das stayed in psychedelics and spiritual practices, I've been involved in both of those -- but that's not been my "career" -- I've been involved in holistic health, but I'm not a holistic health practitioner. So in some sense I have been part of a great many aspects of the consciousness movement. Therefore I'm known to the people I've worked with in all those areas, but I'm not particularly known in any one of them, and they all have slightly different publics.

e.com: Another few of the things that you've done include co-founding the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (ITP), and you were a director of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, and you also helped Ken Wilber get his first book into the world.

Fadiman: I helped Ken.

e.com: You helped?

Fadiman: Yes, I wish I had succeeded, but I helped.
