Institute for Consciousness Science and Technology     Chaosophical Society

The Asklepia Foundation is a non-profit research/educational institution (ICST), and spiritual organization (Chaosophical Society) which provides services and outreach to the local and global community.  Incorporated in Oregon, our mission is to provide sanctuary (Aesculapia Wilderness Retreat), and explore the role of the Consciousness Restructuring Process (CRP) in consciousness, creativity and psychophysical healing with Applied Consciousness Science.  A process-goal of the Foundation is the reintegration of therapy, spirituality and science.  Our purposes include raising appreciation for the value of dreams and REM, training mentors and conducting research in CRP and Consciousness Engineering, as well as publishing. Asklepios (Gr.) or Aesculapius (Rom.) is the god of spontaneous healing through non-interpretive dream processes.  Asklepia Foundation continues to honor and further this tradition by creating a sacred precinct devoted to dreams and healing.

"Come.  It is time."

"The dreamwork I did with you is always with me.  It moved me then and it moves me still as a beautiful unveiling of Life the Healer, love of the body, hiding long and deep in the chaos of the human mystery."

"I have had many different counselings and therapies.  None went as deep as this process; none went deep enough for the healing I desired.  The CRP Dream Process did."

"As we began to work within my dreams, I found that I had come home.  I had begun a remarkable journey into the inner reality of myself, where I came to know a profound strength grounded in a deep personal trust."


"Our separation from each other is an optical illusion of consciousness."
"We are seeking for the simplest possible scheme of thought that will bind together the observed facts."

"[CRP] therapy is where Psychology is going.  It is the future."  Dr. Victoria Luviano, Ph.D., Mexico City.
"I got more from one session than five years of therapy." Participant, San Francisco.
"I've never seen anything like this in all my years of therapy.  It goes beyond it all."  Participant, Chicago.
"Something really profound is happening with this work.  You can see and sense it."  Dr. Thomas Blakely, Ph.D., Portland, Oregon.
"I've been looking for the next step in my work and development as a therapist, and this is it.  It answers my concerns and hopes about counseling and where it is going."  Counselor, Chicago.
"I tried this with a client.  Not only wass there noticeable change during the session, but when he came back the next week he announced it was still working on him and he was ready to begin leaving therapy."  Psychiatrist, Oregon.
"The consciousness states reached here are the same as those we saw at the Menninger Clinic when we were studying esoteric healings, and in the most transformative of the LSD therapy experiences.  My own experience with it has healed an issue that eluded resolution in almost forty years of personal work with the best of my colleagues."  Psychiatrist, Houston, Texas.
"I don't know if it was the dream journeys or not, but since taking them my high blood pressure has dropped and stabilized almost twenty points lower than it was.  I'm actually bordering on low blood pressure now."  Client, Cincinnati, Ohio.
"Since the work we did, that one session, I just can't go back to the guns and weapons mentality; something in me just won't do it.  I keep hearing the crickets."  Client, Florida.
"We have all been given an opening with this work, an opportunity to begin a new journey in life."  70+ year old Participant, Mexico City.

"The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mystical.  It is the power of all true art and science.  He to whom this emotion is a stranger is as good as dead.  To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms--this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness."

BRITISH REPRESENTATIVE: Jane Mallin at janemallin@hotmail.com

Learn to trust the process to find a way through the wilderness,
From psychosomatic distress to natural healing consciousness.
The nature of creativity reflected in fire, water, earth, and air,
Works together in the Journey with R.E.M., to restructure and repair.
In stress, dis-ease, nightmares, and dreams we are drowned quite;
Entertaining consciousness dynamics find we dream not just at night.
The potentially healed structure is flowing silently in secret veins,
Realizing new perception and holistic healing can ease all pains.
Running the psyche’s rapids there is no need to withstand,
Like the snake eating its tail, flow with it to fully understand.
Synergetic imagination, vision and dreams help us enter the flow,
Visitations by Asklepios and Hygeia help us to heal and grow.
Immersion in the consciousness field is mentored by shaman/therapist,
Who guides and helps us to enter the fear and pain to de-stress.
Once entering that healing dreamstream with co-consciousness,
Let go and trust the navigating guide or mentor with emotional finesse.
In olden times creative consciousness appeared as a healing serpent,
The results today are the same when immersion in the field is fervent.
Escape the cage of perceptions, following leading strange attractors,
Journeying deeply ferrets out hidden variables and other factors.
The way was outlined in ancient Greece in the Asklepian cult,
Employing pilgrimage, purification and dreams to heal and exalt:
Close your eyes, breathe and relax, just fill your mind with a dream,
Walk through, going deeper now, notice and share what is supreme.
What’s happening is visceral and need not be at all logical,
Trust your imagination, feel your primal essence as literal.
Release and let go of old notions like a serpent sheds its skin,
Allowing whatever happens, nothing appears that won’t fit in.
Give in and accept those sensations, staying with it going deeper,
Even though it hurts or scares you, I’ll be with you as a waykeeper.
Stay with that energy just a little while longer and let it develop,
Become it, and in that fundamental image revel, and let it envelop.
Find the healing heart of the dream after the vicious maelstrom,
Through all the zones let those healing energies from within come.
It becomes part of you, cellular and genetic; take it in as new resource,
A renascent primal self-image forms, as a matter of natural course.
Creative consciousness may lead to reliving your conception,
With full awareness of the situation surrounding first penetration.
Some find within their journey a voyage to the reiteration of birth,
Imagery may inspire fear and terror of which there is no dirth.
Its OK to weep and wail and grieve, to let go finally and lament,
In the natural healing process it is creative, and not a detriment.
It may be alleged you exist and are therefore bad and stand accused,
Life may have buffeted you with insults which damaged and abused.
Perhaps you still feel cowed and suppressed, like a little child frail,
Out of control, depressed or rageful as those forces continue to assail.
Without intervention, symptoms and patterns persist and never rest,
All the unhealed traumas keep happening and perpetually molest.
The mentor or guide takes your lead and helps give the pain a face,
Expressing one’s weakness is safe now, and its appearance no disgrace.
Nearing the dis-ease structure, the memories and images are monstrous,
We are assailed by mighty natural forces, violent and truly furious.
But they only herald sensory memories of forthcoming dawning light,
Creative consciousness redesigns our core and brings welcome respite.
Your earliest formative conditions may indeed have been horrible,
Diving into the unknown territory may seem disorienting and terrible.
Deep knowing at the organismic level can alleviate that hollowness,
And salve the woundedness within that defended this wretchedness.
The journey moves through a spectrum of zones that leave you aghast, 
And at the most intense part of the catharsis may feel like a harsh blast.
The first steps of the journey, of course, begin with pilgrimage,
A visit to another world, sanctuary of a more primal healing village.
Identifying the problem, where you’ve missed the mark, is a confession,
This is a baby step in releasing what has harmed through its retention.
Bathing in spring waters and sweating for opening and purification,
Can bring a sense of the Holy Grail’s elixer that is a healing libation.
To secure the gifts of the gods, it is helpful to profer an offering,
Something of symbolic value to you which implies a sense of suffering.
Then comes the core of the process--the ritual of dream incubation,
That starts the alchemical process, leading to concentration or titration:
Through a quantum leap of consciousness restructuring and emanation,
Followed through close attention to the serpent’s rhythmic undulation.
Zone 1 includes behavior patterns, games, rackets and symptoms;
Zone 2 is the dance of emotions and thoughts that hold us victims.
Zone 3 is the region of adopted belief systems, largely unconscious,
Zone 4 is personal and transpersonal mythology, the collective in us.
Zone 5, quantum consciousness, edge of Creation, strange attractors,
Which draw us down to 6, blank mind of Chaos’ unknowable factors.
This is the most fundamental perception, healing restructuring energy,
A dwelling place like finding Home, open to life’s infinite possibility.
Find your sanctuary there, completely immersed in deep knowing,
Not needing even to recognize the healing seeds Chaos is sowing.
The river of consciousness dynamics is a stream that’s ever-flowing,
And the natural healing process can be visited by simply freely going.
Re-enter now, come back renewed, emerging from the crucible of chaos,
Self-organizing heals; those forces that assailed no longer betray us.
Flowing with it, we have liquified, dissolved in the universal solvent,
Restructuring echoes a holographic model of evolution’s involvement.
Changes are real and permanent and entail automatic integration,
And this whole-self healing has a by-product of spiritual elation.
Asklepios knew the inherent healing power contained within the dream,
Giving mankind a chaotic winding pathway to healing, serpentine.
"Come.  It is time."
