Dionysian Buddhism: Guided Interpersonal Meditations in the Three Yanas

By Claudio Naranjo

Dionysian Buddhism: Guided Interpersonal Meditations in the Three Yanas will assist readers in exploring their own emotional landscapes. This sequence of guided interpersonal meditations by the renowned spiritual teacher and psychotherapist Dr. Claudio Naranjo is structured to guide individuals towards acceptance of what is and to be fully present — to meet pain with joy, expand awareness into consciousness and to learn how to share in the full presence of others.

The “Dionysian” context of Buddhism provides a lens in which to interpret non-attachment through non-interference with the stream of life. Naranjo draws on a wide range of Buddhist traditions, from Theravada to Vajrayana, in order to create a work that emphasizes both the experiential and multifaceted aspects of meditation.

As Naranjo, who first wrote Dionysian Buddhism in Spanish and translated it himself into English, says, “Only a change of consciousness might save our world, and that in view of this collective shift in consciousness there is nothing more relevant we can do than start with ourselves.”

Claudio Naranjo

Dr. Claudio Naranjo (1932 – 2019) was a Chilean-born psychotherapist, medical doctor, author, educator, Buddhist practitioner, and pioneer in the areas of psychology, psychedelic therapies, and human development. Naranjo was an early practitioner of the  “Enneagram of Personality” which he enriched with his deep understanding of psychology and more esoteric aspects of work with the psyche. He ultimately created SAT (Seekers After Truth) integrating Gestalt therapy, the Enneagram, contemplative practices, music and art therapy, and other practices designed to provide deep personal insights.

In his later years, he expanded his work to explore education and its role in promoting patriarchal worldviews that contribute to our deepening global crisis. Naranjo is the author of several books including The Healing Journey: Pioneering Approaches to Psychedelic Therapy (2nd edition), (MAPS 2013), The Revolution We Expected: Cultivating a New Politics of Consciousness (Synergetic Press, 2020), and Dionysian Buddhism: Guided Interpersonal Meditations in the Three Yanas (Synergetic Press, 2022).
