An Introduction to Leary’s 8 Circuit Brain Model
Pricing: €42,00 – €77,00
Depending on your money flow capacity
This all day workshop offers a playful introduction to self-exploration, self-assessment and transformative work, without having to adopt a cultural-spiritual paradigm.
We will explore the 8 Circuit Brain Model, devised by Dr. Timothy Leary, in an embodied way using a series of exercises, games and rituals for you to have a taste of direct experience with this map.
I find this model useful to understand how experiences of altered states affect personal transformation and where we need to focus our inner work, to integrate and remain balanced while engaging with explorations of altered states.
Who is this for?
If your rational mind has strong allergies against the notions of woo and magic, this might not be for you.
It is, if you have an affinity for consciousness exploration and like to play with altered states – either using psychedelics or practicing ritual and magick.
The rabbithole the work around this model offers, might be for you if you are looking for an approach to self-knowledge and expansion, that empowers you to be your own “spiritual authority”… and you are open to fringe philosophers with a sense of humor to give you pointers without selling you ontological paradigms.
What will you get out of this?
An embodied experience of this model downloaded into your system to play, adapt and further explore different dimensions of experience available to the human nervous system so you can map your consciousness explorations on your own terms.
You will receive insights in how to approach psychonautic exploration in a balanced manner and how the integration process can work for you.
You might come out with a sense of expansion and new perspectives for looking at yourself and how your nervous system shapes the way you experience reality.
You might have some “A-ha” moments and “Revelations” and experience some shifts in how you approach the world and life.
And you will have a lot of fun!
The journey is designed as a quick run through of the 8 levels of consciousness, with rapid shifts between different spaces.
Over a series of 8 experiments, practices, games and rituals where we will explore safety, territoriality, cognition, belonging, play, intuition, magick and impermanence.This workshop includes physical movement and proximity as well as touch and space for vulnerable sharings.

ABOUT THE 8 CIRCUIT BRAIN MODEL
This model was devised by Dr. Timothy Leary and further developed by Robert Anton Wilson and Antero Alli. It is another map for self-assessment and different levels of personal and transpersonal consciousness that works without the determinism of place and time of birth unlike maps like astrology or human design.It maps psychological and spiritual development in a paradigm neutral lingo applying tenants from developmental psychology, evolutionary neurobiology, general semantics and maybe logic. It allows for an understanding how our Central Nervous System wires throughout stages of development and how altered states of consciousness function as catalyst for evolution in our personal wiring, if we manage to absorb and integrate the shocks and how they can create states of disbalance and dysregulation if we fail to do so.
