ANT-3020 Global Healing, Consciousness and Religion

3 credits

Prerequisite: None.

While consciousness is a universal characteristic of human beings, it is influenced in a profound manner by the culture of each group. This causes people to experience life as a complex interaction of "alternate realities." Students explore the relationship between culture and alternate realities through topics such as altered states of consciousness, dreams, faith, magic, shamanism, witchcraft, possession and mysticism.
