Last updated over 1 year ago. What is this?

A 'non-ordinary state' refers to an altered state of consciousness in which an individual's cognitive and perceptual faculties transcend their baseline levels of awareness, allowing access to extraordinary realms of experience, insight, and functioning. These states, often induced through practices such as meditation, flow activities, psychedelics, or breathwork, dissolve conventional boundaries of self and reality, enabling profound shifts in perception, emotional well-being, and creative problem-solving. In non-ordinary states, one might encounter heightened intuition, mystical experiences, and a deep sense of connection to others and the cosmos, thus offering a gateway to transformative personal and collective growth.
