Claudio Naranjo: “The Poetry of Madness”, the value of psychotic experience
Excerpts from an Esalen Institute symposium on the value of psychotic experience, entitled “The Poetry of Madness”, recorded July 31, 1968 at the Longshoremen’s Memorial Hall in San Francisco. Among the topics Naranjo discusses are psychosis, mysticism, shamanism, art, the Gurdjieff work, hallucinogens, and traditional myths & stories. Also included in these excerpts are some comments from Alan Watts and Allen Ginsberg on the subjects of Gurdjieff and Subud.
