Welcome to The Ecstasis Club!

The Ecstasis Club (TEC) is an official Arizona State University student organization founded in 2018. TEC seeks to understand, experience, and integrate altered states of consciousness through group discussions, community centered workshops, and academic research. TEC’s goals are to create a community focused around healing, understanding consciousness, and promoting positive human experiences.

This year we are focusing on:

1) To create a safe space in which people can talk about their experiences with altered states, free of judgement.

2) To develop a research team dedicated to the science of altered states of consciousness. 

3) Engage in community activities through workshops, seminars, and harm reduction events.

We will be discussing topics such as: the benefit of flow states, how to integrate contemplative states in your life, and how psychedelic states are shaping the future of healthcare. Workshops are a crucial part of our club. Workshops may include, but not limited to: workshops on flow, meditation, yoga, breath-work, natural medicines, and psychedelic science. If this sounds like things you may be interested in, feel free to attend one of our meetings!

Description

The purpose of this organization shall be to expand the conversation on the topic of altered states of consciousness, or Ecstasis, through the cultivation of local communities. These altered states include (but are not limited to): flow states, contemplative states, and psychedelic states. We shall aim to promote an objective education to the public on the positive and negative components of altered experiences. We will be providing resources to our members, as well as the community, for local awareness events, public talks, and street-based activism projects. The approach is objective in nature by presenting experiences to the general population in a language that is easily understood, so states of Ecstasis can be reassessed from a well-rounded viewpoint. Making a genuine impact on the community, for us, means defining these altered states of consciousness from an unbiased space while using interpersonal skills to communicate it. Furthermore, we will broaden the conversation to discuss the topics of the flow, contemplative, or psychedelic experience. This includes understanding altered states of consciousness through any medium of activity or philosophy. This includes (but is not limited to): mysticism, martial arts, meditation, breath-work, yoga, literature, science, art, music, self-expression, intrapersonal exploration, and interpersonal experiences. These experiences has been discussed throughout human history across many different cultures and geographical locations. This club seeks to understand questions such as: “What are the qualities of Ecstasis?”, “How can we integrate this type experience?”, "How can we promote harm-reduction?" and “How can we benefit from altered states of consciousness in today’s society?”.
