Experience Portal

 Dancing with the Trickster is developing an online platform to foster and serve a growing community of individuals who are speaking out about their anomalous experiences, and the experts working to understand these experiences.

The participation of contributors (“experients”) in sharing their stories will:
1) form the basis of a potential healing community for experients 
2) offer an educational resource for the public and clinical/research professionals
3) inspire content for the Dancing with the Trickster video series

The Dancing with the Trickster mission is to provide a safe space for people to share their extraordinary experiences, so that they and the care community can better understand and learn from these experiences and, at the same time, gain new insights into the human mind and the nature of consciousness itself.

In developing this intersection of community, sharing and research, we are hoping to remove the stigma, fear and isolation that many “experients” are subjected to, and ideally, make significant contributions to the field in general. If you are interested in submitting your own story of an anomalous experience, please contact us through the contact form. We will let you know when we are welcoming submissions/contributions.

NOTE:  If you or anyone that you know is having difficulties in response to an anomalous or extraordinary experience, we strongly recommend that you seek professional help or guidance from qualified mental health professionals. If you or someone you know is in crisis, it may be necessary to call 911 in your area for assistance.

For those interested in submitting anomalous experience stories, please contact us.

“Consciousness poses the most baffling problems in the science of the mind. There is nothing that we know more intimately than conscious experience, but there is nothing that is harder to explain.”
