About / Contact


I am a postgraduate researcher from Sydney, Australia. My research focuses on mysticism, the dark night of the soul and the healing potential of altered states of consciousness. I am particularly interested in the relationship between mental illness and spirituality, mystical experiences, and how techniques that were originally designed for contemplative and ‘spiritual’ purposes have been integrated into modern Western psychology. My Masters thesis, ‘The Dark Side of Dharma’, will be published as a book with Aeon in early 2021. My current PhD research examines the phenomenology of the psilocybin mystical experience.
