The GOOD NEWS is that South Bay IANDS has been very fortunate in adding a staff person to help facilitate some meetings. If you were at the last meeting (the experiencer panel) you may have met him. He is Bill Virga. Bill is a transpersonal counselor (psychotherapist) and a certified hypnotherapist based locally. Transpersonal psychology is a discipline that not only looks into the patient or client, but also attempts to discern how that person’s specific psychological make-up fits into the greater reality, each other, and the universe. In other words, how we relate to the reality that we all share as human beings. This includes not only the personal psychological, but also the spiritual, metaphysical, and paranormal domains. Besides transpersonal psychology, he has many other interests and career experiences including working with sexually abused children, facilitating process groups for mothers trying to get off drugs and alcohol through the Mandela House (http://alameda.networkofcare.org/aging/resource/agencydetail.cfm?pid=SolidFoundationMandelaHouseIIandKellerHouse_2_1_0&ageGrp=), and teaching Sunday school.
Bill is a 20-year expert teaching and using the Enneagram, a psychological personality type system which assists us in having a better understanding of human behavior. He is also an active member of FMBR – the Foundation for Mind-Being Research (http://www.fmbr.org), based in Los Altos and Palo Alto. FMBR is a “friend” organization to South Bay IANDS.
Tuesday night, Bill will present a professionally produced (and directed by Tim Coleman) presentation of a video on The Afterlife Investigations featuring experts in the field such as Rupert Sheldrake, Allison DuBois, and others.
