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

Claudio Naranjo was a Chilean-born psychotherapist, medical doctor, author, educator, serious Buddhist practitioner, and pioneer in the areas of psychology, psychedelic therapies, and human development. His integrative approaches to a variety of fields elevated his work and created global reach and influence. After graduating medical school and exploring the intersection of education, medical science, and anthropology in Chile, he came to the US and ultimately apprenticed under Fritz Perls, the founder of Gestalt Therapy. Naranjo was ultimately named one of three successors by Perls in that approach. Naranjo expanded his work to explore psychedelic therapies and worked with such notables as Leo Zeff and Richard Evans Schultes. He was an early practitioner of 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, Enneagram, contemplative practices, music and art therapy, and other practices designed to provide deep personal insights. In his last years he further expanded his work to explore education and its role in promoting patriarchal worldviews that contribute to our depending global
crisis. Dr. Naranjo passed away in July 2019 after a long illness. His last book published in Spanish, The Revolution We Expected, will appear in English this Fall from Synergetic Press.

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.
