The Revolution We Expected: Cultivating a New Politics of Consciousness

By Claudio Naranjo

The Revolution We Expected presents a call for individual and societal transformation in order to rebuild and humanize our institutions and our communities to realize a post-patriarchal world and elevated consciousness as a global community. In his last work as an author, celebrated doctor and psychotherapist Claudio Naranjo uses The Revolution We Expected to make a final call to humanity to awaken to our collective potential and work to transcend our patriarchal past and present. The book presents a map that argues not only for collective individual awakening but a concerted effort to transform our institutions so that our educational and cultural lessons are in service to a better world.

Offers a hopeful path forward, beyond a society ruled by dogma, greed, authoritarianism, and narcissism.” — Don Lattin

 

 

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). 

Description

In his last work as an author, celebrated psychotherapist Claudio Naranjo makes a final call to humanity to awaken to our collective potential and work to transcend our patriarchal past and present in order to build a new world. This book argues not only for collective individual awakening, but a concerted effort to transform our institutions so that they are in service to a better world. Naranjo targets our traditional education and global economic systems that increasingly neglect human development and must transform to meet the needs of future social evolution. Ultimately, he says, we need to embark on a collective process of rehumanizing our systems and establishing self-awareness as individuals to create the necessary global consciousness to realize a new path forward; stressing the need for education to teach wisdom over knowledge, and utilizing meditation and contemplative practices to form new ways to educate, and be educated.

His books are published in Spanish through Edicions La Llave, in Barcelona, Spain, which is also where the Naranjo Foundation is based.
