Our purpose as an organization is to introduce and disseminate the Consciousness Restructuring Process, (CRP). A non-invasive psychophysical healing and personal growth process (rooted in ancient non-interpretive Asklepian dream healing), it integrates and enhances our natural transformation, by facilitating the flow between Chaos and Structure. This journey process is experiential and spiritual, and through our immersion in it and REM, our existential perceptions evolve. Dreams are agents of change and can alter our lives, personal, cultural and transpersonal.
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 (http://asklepia.org). Incorporated in Oregon, our mission is to provide sanctuary (Aesculapia Wilderness Retreat), and explore the role of 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, and publishing.
* To explore the potential of Applied Consciousness Science through spiritual, therapeutic and research avenues, and facilitate creative applications;
* To foster and enrich the development of human potential and conscious evolution;
* To administrate the development, dissemination, and perpetuation of Consciousness Restructuring Process (CRP) and Applied Consciousness Science (Chaosophy Journal);
* To teach the Consciousness Restructuring Process (CRP) and introduce the mentoring technique of co-consciousness (The Chaosophical Society); to ensure that the process is used in an ethical and competant manner.
* To offer a facility (Aesculapia Wilderness Retreat) for the development and use of CRP in the local and global community (Asklepia website: http://asklepia.org);
* To network with other individuals (Chaosophical Society membership; Amphora Newsletter) and organizations in the field through our website, outreach, and training programs (Institute for Consciousness Science and Technology).

Individual Sessions: Experience personal journeys with a certified CRP Mentor.
Individual psychotherapy at Asklepia includes an eclectic approach using lifestyle and nutritional counseling, shamanic, Freudian and Jungian therapy, Transactional Analysis and Gestalt as a basis, augmented by the journey process when indicated. As journeys often require time to assimilate, they are not necessarily included in every session, and are conducted at the discretion of the mentor and mentored.
Group sessions are available periodically, both with established groups and open-ended groups. These sessions include campouts, sweats, vision quests, and dream incubation. They are conducted on whitewater trips, at the retreat and in workshops and demonstration groups. A CRP Mentor facilitates the group, and conducts journeys with members when appropriate situations arise in the group context.
Corporate workshops are available using dreams for problem-solving, team-building, stress management, and personal enrichment; individual and group sessions or journeys are conducted at the discretion of the mentor. Enquire for availability and rates for your business or corporation.
Retreat and Sanctuary:
Aesculapia Wilderness Retreat offers a variety of packages for relaxing stays in our low-stress environment, with and without therapeutic support, either at the retreat house or on-site camping. Retreat packages includes daily sessions, (or as needed). Sanctuary provides guests a place to work on their own healing crisis, in their own way. Mentors can be engaged for a fee of $65 per session for sanctuary guests. Ask about our special 7-14 day Darkroom Enlightenment experiential retreats. See Aesculapia Wilderness Retreat for complete daily, weekly, and monthly fee schedule. Aesculapia is only a day trip from wonders like Crater Lake, Oregon Caves, Redwood forests, Oregon Coast, skiing at Mount Ashland, Kalamiopsis Wilderness, Mount Shasta, Rogue River whitewater and jetboat rides, Ashland Shakespeare, and Jacksonville's worldclass Britt Music Festival, and miles of beautiful wooded country and drives.
River Spiritual Quests:
Asklepia is situated close to the confluence of both the Rogue and Illinois Rivers providing whitewater rafting adventures at various levels of challenge. Half day, full day, or six day river trips and spiritual quests are offered in the spring and fall. All guests can book river trips during their stay. Graywolf is an experienced river guide, and we find that wilderness and the river are great teachers. Please call for information and fees.
Personalized Recovery Programs:
Tired of regimented, “one-size-fits-all” recovery programs that don’t yield lasting results? Asklepia offers both individualized and group-oriented recovery programs with personal counseling, treatment, and journeys for those seeking to reconnect with the spiritual aspects of their addictions. This program is directed by John Penkert, a psychiatric nurse and certified addictions counselor with many years of institutional and private experience in a variety of addiction issues. As a certified CRP mentor, John has used this process with excellent results for his clients for years both in his practice and in volunteer settings. Call Asklepia for an interview and details; by appointment only.
Training Workshops for CRP Certification:
The Institute for Consciousness Science and Technology offers intensive training programs in mentoring for both psychologically and spiritually-oriented individuals desiring to add the journey process to their repertoire of skills and treatment options. Instruction of students or personnel in research, techniques or practices pertinent to the delivery of health services is offered. Asklepia also provides support for additional or updated training of professional, paraprofessional, or non-professionals working in all health fields, including pastoral counseling. See the extensive ICST Curriculum and Institute Objectives for further details; see also The Chaosophical Society, which sponsors spiritual aspirants.
Demonstrations of Consciousness Restructuring Process:
Just want to see what the CRP journey process is like and where it can go? You may want to attend or sponsor a demonstration lecture. Demonstrations are conducted within the context of short public talks at your location, for a variety of events. Asklepia plans to be represented, for example, at many stops of Whole Life Expo. Workshops are organized following many demonstrations.
Workshops, Seminars and Symposia:
Asklepia sponsors workshops open to all those interested in learning more, experiencing, and practicing the CRP non-interpretive, experiential dream healing process. We also sponsor Seminars, where we bring in other speakers, such as Dr. Stanley Krippner or Bruce Lipton, to bring their expertise in related subjects such as dreams, parapsychology or cellular biology, for example. We also sponsor Symposia where those with more extensive backgrounds in related fields can congregate, network, and cross-pollinate. We also host specialized workshops, such as those for healthcare professionals, spa personnel, or hypnotherapists both at our Aesculapia Retreat site, and at the sponsor’s site. Ask about our 7 - 14 day experiential Darkroom Enlightenment retreats. Call for details on booking your organization.
Audio and Video Tapes:
Coming Soon: The Asklepia Archives contain hours and hours of publically-available audio tapes of teaching, seminars, and individual journeys which are very instructive. There are also radio interviews and videos showing the beauty of Aesculapia Wilderness Retreat and the lovely surrounding Siskiyou Mountains and Rogue River Valley. The Retreat is within a day trip of Crater Lake, Mt. Ashland skiing, Redwood forests, Kalamiopsis Wilderness Area, Illinois River Valley, Mt. Shasta, and the Oregon Coast. We also offer videos of training sessions, showing the CRP journey process.
Whether you have been on dream journeys yet with us or not, we can meet your online counseling needs. After an initial call to establish rapport, we work against a pre-paid retainer, answering your questions and offering support via your e-mail. In some cases, CRP may be done on the phone. Standard fee is $50 per hour, debited against retainer.

His topics include dreams, modern shamanism’s role in psychotherapy, spiritual or psychophysical healing, experiential therapies, intentional communities, chaos theory as it relates to the healing process, and how the new physics demonstrates the holism or oneness of the Universe.
IONA MILLER, co-author of Dreamhealing, is a clinical hypnotherapist and writer who has spoken on topics ranging from metaphysics and mysticism, to sacred psychology, and the new cosmology. As co-author of Dreamhealing with Graywolf Swinney, she is very familiar with CRP, and the transpersonal nature of dreams.

"There is no such thing as a spiritual journey. If there were a spiritual
journey, it would be only a quarter inch long, though many miles deep. You do not have to go away outside yourself to come into real conversation with your soul and with the mysteries of the spiritual world. The eternal is at home --within you."
The Chaosophical Society is the philosophical and spiritual branch of the Asklepia Foundation, the third leg of the tripod which also consists of the therapeutic and scientific endeavours of the foundation. Membership is open to all those interested.
Founded in 1992, its mission is to teach the spiritual aspects of dreamhealing or the Consciousness Restructuring Process (CRP) to those who want to practice mentoring as a part of pastoral counseling, and to provide a social organization for those who practice and those who seek its fraternal support. The Chaosophical Society also provides ordination through individually-structured programs in CRP leading to certifications at three different competency levels, the final level being by invitation only to the Holy Order of Disorder.
The philosophical approach of the Society recognizes that Chaos is a fundamental force in the Universe, not in any negative sense, but as the very source and matrix of hidden order, self-organizing emergent order. That matrix and its order is considered metaphorically to be the primal “thought” of the Divine Creator, and we also are “thoughts” in that divine mind. Its purpose and mystical goal is to lead us toward direct experience of that transpersonal healing Source, the Unbound Self.
The Society draws cross-cultural inspiration from many shamanic and mystical traditions, including [but not limited to] Taoism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Native American, Sufi, Hermetic, Gnostic, New Age and Christian perspectives. It need not be related to any particular tradition at all, but recognizes the fundamental validity of the holistic force of Spirit in all forms. It shares the most with mystical processes and practices which involve direct experiential communion or epiphany with the Source, groundstate, God/Goddess, or whatever Name one prefers for that universal higher power.
The Ordination program culminates in a Doctor of Divinity degree. The goal of the curriculum is to help the individual develop pastoral counseling skills for individual and community work. It addresses the special needs of spiritual counseling. Special attention is given to the value of rites of passage, ritual and ceremony in both individual and community settings. Training provides a comprehensive background in human potential, shamanic techniques, personal mythology, comparative religion, and the varieties of spiritual practice and meditation. Mentors receive on-site training at the retreat, and later off-site supervision in the field.
We subscribe to the Council on Spiritual Practices' Code of Ethics for Spiritual Guides (http://www.csp.org/development/code.html), covering topics such as Intention, Serving Society, Serving Individuals, Competence, Integrity, Quiet Presence, Not for Profit, Tolerance, and Peer Review.
The Research wing of The Institute for Consciousness Science and Technology is directed by Graywolf Swinney, who is also the Principle Investigator of all grants and programs.
Categories for which the Foundation is seeking grants include operating expenses, salaries, hardware (i.e. computers, biofeedback, and EEG equipment), pure research, short-term and longitudinal studies of specific syndromes and cases and their treatment with the Consciousness Restructuring Process (CRP) and nutritional support. Particular areas of interest include addictions recovery and children.

Previous studies conducted for Asklepia by Thomas A. Blakely, Ph.D. [Neuropsychology and Clinical Electrophysiology] of Lake Oswego, Oregon have indicated that co-consciousness reveals itself through unique brainwave patterns, which appear very similar to sleep, but where the subject, in fact, remains alert and not only responsive, but interactive without and within the shared journey. Specific areas of neurological interest and inquiry include the nature of "chaotic consciousness," R.E.M., sleep cycles, delta sleep and dreams; the evolutionary value of dreams; standard biofeedback and neurofeedback, also, detectable results of CRP through EEG, MRI and CAT scans; P300 waves and PGO waves within the CRP journeys; endogenous evoked potentials and "MERMERS"; false memory syndrome. Our focus is on the Biophysics of consciousness and restructuring trauma patterns, and the process of facilitating spontaneous healing. As one step toward that end we are sponsoring experiential Darkroom Retreats, facilitated with dream incubation and CRP.
The mindbody interface is a rich realm for many kinds of research opportunities which the Foundation would like to pursue. Grants for this purpose would further basic research into the relationship between CRP and the Placebo Effect, chaos theory and psychobiological processes, the quantum metaphysics of the holistic organism, the quantum self, the superconduction of consciousness, the engineering of altered states, healing effects of journeys to the groundstate of consciousness, the melding of science, dreams, and spirituality, and other aspects of mindbody healing.
The Institute has the goal of connection with the divine Source, but it uses the methods and rigours of science in its pursuit of the nature of Reality. It unites both physics and metaphysics, matter and psyche, bodymind. It heralds a return to the ancient traditions of both Natural Science or Philosophy and the art of Alchemy, which sought to find the immanence or identity of the Godhead in matter.
A potential is a River of Energy, and "chaotic consciousness" is the Ocean of Potential. Exploring various means of tapping this infinite ocean of living energy is the purpose of The Institute forConsciousness Science and Technology. Foremost in terms of these explorations into the engineering of consciousness is that of Human Potential, through the CRP mentoring process, taught in our trainings, and publications.
CRP, immersion in that flow of potential, is a journey to the heart of healing which bridges the gap between who you have been and who you dream of being. Dreams are an agent of change and reveal our deepest nature, personal, cultural and transpersonal. Our Asklepian approach is experiential, self-organizing, and emergent, rather than interpretive or analytical.
The Institute seeks to help connect more individuals with their own dreams, creativity, and genius, their elan vital, their spirituality, the Unbound Self. Our programs are for anyone who wants to discover and explore the many facets of their psychophysical being, and enjoy freedom from self-defeating patterns and psychological traps. CRP is a way to bring the true power of your self out of the shadows and into the light.
We encourage Generalization, rather than Specialization. The Institute has interests in and maintains interdisciplinary research programs in such diverse fields as Humanistic and Transpersonal Psychology, Cognitive Sciences, Quantum Physics, Biophysics, Quantum Cosmology, Synergetics, Allopathic Medicine and Alternative Healing arts. Our subject is approached as both art and science.
The Institute welcomes patronage, fellow researchers, and volunteer service. Currently, we are seeking grant funding for a pilot project in the therapeutic treatment of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. We also have innovative programs for at-risk children and substance abuse. However, our primary pursuit is helping others realize their unhampered flow, and self-healing potential by embracing the transformational process, listening to dreams and the inner stillness.

AESCULAPIA WILDERNESS RETREAT
RE-CREATIONAL SERVICES/GUIDED TOURS/EVENTS
Asklepia offers private and group training sessions. Contact us for dates of Spring and Fall sessions. Make reservations now for your place in our 2002 Training Schedule.
AESCULAPIA DAYTRIPS and OUTINGS
There are many exciting and beautiful places at or near the Retreat, including our own 80 acres of lovely woods, springs, streams, and even a small cave. Individual or group sessions can include camping, retreats, workshops, and Dreamhealing. Join in the fun with our weekly sweats, dreamsharing, vision quests, and drum journeys, and meetings of the Chaosophical Society included with your stay.
You can book spa treatments or massage with our in-house therapists (by appointment). Enjoy free summer weekly concerts in Riverside Park (a little bit of old Americana), or join the fun during the annual Cruise Night and Vintage Car Show, or Boatnik Festival (carnival and jet boat races and rides all summer) over Memorial Day weekend. This year downtown's Rogue Theatre hosts Richie Havens, Leon Russell, Starship, Dave Mason, Poco, Asleep at the Wheel and the Rogue Celtic Festival.
Our annual County Fair books nationally-known acts, both country and rock. Spend a day exploring the many parks (including skate, frisbee-golf and all-sports parks) along the Rogue River. Visit our many recreation areas and perhaps the Weasku Inn, favorite destination of Clark Gable and other Hollywood notables. The Rogue River is where Zane Gray got his inspiration and it's waiting to inspire you, too! Or follow the Applegate up from the Retreat to its source in snowy California peaks.
"It's the Climate!" We have four distinct, yet relatively-mild seasons. In the Spring it is verdent green here, like the Emerald Isle. Summer is warm enough to swim comfortably in the many creeks and rivers. Indian Summer lasts through October, and the Fall colors are a riotous attraction in themselves.
There are many beautiful drives and nature walks in the area for you to explore on your own, or with some of us. Just a couple of miles from the Retreat is an easy-rated Limpy Creek Nature Walk. Only a little further are trails of moderate length for picnicing, including the Enchanted Forest, and Cathedral Hills, which are also suited for mountain bikes. Take a drive into the Applegate Valley and up to Applegate Lake. Or drive to Williams through pioneer homesteads and head for the hills to the Caves Highway and wineries or Lake Selmac after some solitude along Upper Deer Creek.
Or head out and enjoy the pristine beauty of the local wine-country, the wild and scenic Illinois River Valley and Oregon Caves; or, if you feel more social try the world-famous Britt Music Festivals (both classical and popular) in Jacksonville and Medford or the incomparable Ashland Shakespeare Festival. Enjoy the view after hiking up Lower Table Rock; or attend the annual Pear Blossom Run Festival.
How about a whalewatching daytrip to the beach through the Redwoods, less than 2 hours away from Crescent City, through the serpentine Smith River canyon, to Brookings/Harbor, Gold Beach and points north, or a leisurely four-hour drive south to Eureka, Ca. along the Coastal Redwoods to the new Morris Graves Museum of Art, housing several galleries?
RIVER OF DREAMS WHITEWATER ADVENTURE
A short drive from Aesculapia Retreat through Merlin, begin an adventure into whitewater and dreams with Graywolf as your guide. This 3-day journey begins at Graves Creek on the world-class Rogue River and winds through the beautiful Kalmiopsis Wilderness Area. Camp along the river and enjoy the scenery and wildlife, explore your nightly dreams with the group each morning, and see what transformative experiences the "River-Healer" brings your way. Most gear and meals included. Call for an equipment list, schedule, and protocols. To find out more about this fabulous whitewater adventure and healing experience...

MIDDLE ROGUE DAYTRIPS AND OVERNIGHTER
A little too timid for a whitewater adventure, or is your time limited? Consider "getting your feet wet" on our daytrips and overnighter campouts on the Middle Rogue River. These riffles and rapids are fun, even for children. An even easier Tahiti "float" is available from Chinook Park, north of Grants Pass to Schroeder Park, south of town; enjoy a picnic anywhere along the way. Rent Tahitis at Bradbury's Gun n' Tackle.
Our own Middle Rogue trips start at Hog Creek and pass through the reknown Hellsgate Canyon of the Rogue River and end in Galice; or start upstream from Galice and float to any number of campgrounds between there and Graves Creek, where the world-class whitewater begins. From there you can hike 2 miles to Rainey Falls, along the beautiful shady side of the river, or take the "high road" trail on the sunny side of life! Or take a drive downstream through backroads to Mariel or Powers. The Meryl Streep movie "River Wild" was filmed here, and with good reason.
SACRED TRIANGLE JOURNEY ON THE GREEN TURTLE
Aesculapia is located in a "sacred triangle" considered holy by Native Americans because of its unique natural features and intrinsic beauty. So "get on the bus," like the old days, with Graywolf and the Asklepians and "let's do the time-warp, again." Enjoy the Grand Tour from Aesculapia to our sister-spas in Mt. Shasta (and Stuart Hot Springs) and at Breitenbush Hot Springs. Each stop includes an overnight stay and time to explore the area's natural delights alone or with the group. Smaller tours by van with our staff can accomodate journeyers wishes or special needs (ask about handicapped access; we will try to meet your needs).
NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY FIELD TRIPS
Want to get off the beaten path and bring a little bit of nature home with you? Take the "road less traveled" with our tour guides. Or learn while you tour with nature photography expert, Bob Miller, through the beautiful Southern Oregon landscape. Which way shall we go today? The Southern Oregon general area is peppered with impressive, unique geological wonders, such as Crater Lake, Mt. Shasta, Shasta Lake, Mt. Ashland, and the Lava Tubes of eastern Oregon. All around are lovely drives through bucolic farmland and the Siskiyou Mountains. In one direction lies the beautiful Illinois River Valley, Oregon Caves, Kalmiopsis Wilderness, Babyfoot Lake, Mt. Elijah, Bolin Lake & Lookout, Coastal Redwoods, and incomparable Oregon and No. California Coasts. All are home of abundant wildflowers spring through summer. Could it be more picturesque? We think not!
Take off in the other direction and find the Upper Rogue River, Upper and Lower Table Rock, Mt. McLaughlin, Umpqua River waterfalls, Mill Creek Falls/Avenue of the Giants, Lost Creek Lake Recreation Area, Diamond Lake, Mt. Ashland (skiing in season; fantastic wildflower walks in summer), Emigrant Lake, Greensprings, Klamath Lake Wildlife Preserve (largest bald eagle refuge in the lower USA), Mt. Shasta, Castle Crags Day Hike, or head into the American Alps, Shasta-Trinity area. For people-watching, antique-hunting or good shopping, cultural events and fine cuisine consider side trips to picturesque Ashland and historic Jacksonville. Trips can be planned to include your personal needs, desires and highlights.

WORLD REKNOWN OREGON SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL
Ashland is world-famous for its annual Shakespeare Festival, which also includes contemporary plays staged in the various theaters around town. Enjoy the old-world atmosphere and natural beauty of Lithia Park, with its Elizabethan Theatre; stroll around for people-watching and fine shopping and cuisine. Drop in at Soundpeace for our Asklepia Publications and a great selection of New Age products; try Bloomsbury or the Blue Dragon for unique, hard-to-find second-hand books and music. Ashland winter highlights include skiing at Mt. Ashland, and a variety of cross-country sites. In summer, Mt. Ashland offers a variety of wildflower hikes and fabulous views of Mt. Shasta and area.
"Journey to the Healing Heart of Your Dreams"
EXTRA - ORDINARY WEDDINGS
Co-Created Wedding Ceremonies ...with Graywolf
"Graywolf was able to capture and articulate the spirit of our joining with ssuch clarity and grace, that his words ring eternal in our memories and serve to guide us in our daily lives."
Before the Ceremony
Two initial consultations with Graywolf will explore the spiritual depths of your union to create a unique ceremony honoring its sacredness.
In marriages that are a sacred union, the spirit joins the physical and emotional. It has been said about shamanic marriages that when a Shaman joins two people in union, the bond is never broken! A bride and bridegroom recently joined in marriage expressed that, "Graywolf was able to capture and articulate the spirit of our joining with such clarity and grace that his words ring eternal in our memories and serve to guide us in our daily lives."
After the Union
Graywolf and other Asklepia mentors are available for consultations to help in the evolution of your married and family relationship. There are many transitions in family life which they can help facilitate: marriage, birth, death, re-bonding with children or bonding with an adopted child, transitioning from childhood to adulthood, or mid-life crisis, and menopause. Graywolf and the other mentors are here to guide you and your family through such passages, insuring that the next phase of your life is enntered with confidence, enthusiasm, joy, and creativity.
A beautiful, lush setting for your wedding, Aesculapia is 80 acres of forest seclusion in the beautiful Blue Glen on the edge of the mystical Siskiyou Mountains, only minutes from Grants Pass. Scattered throughout our retreat are meadows and grassy areas perfect for weddings and ceremonies. We have a 900 square foot dome with verdant natural surroundings. The platform is ideal for dancing. We can accomodate up to 300 people for the ceremony. We have access to catering service or will work with a caterer of your choice. For out of town guests, we have rooms and a cabin to rent. In addition, there are many sequestered camp sites under trees and by a flowing creek. Campers have use of the retreat and bath house facilities.
Graywolf will also bring the magic of his ceremonies to other localities.
