April 30, 2022 – Dr Hohwy says there’s value in studying the underlying cognitive processes at play, so we can work with our consciousness to shift our thinking. “Whenever we have a change in our conscious states, or some kind of transformative experience, whether grief, or through meditation, or taking psychedelics … something must be happening in the brain. “You can’t have a change in your consciousness without at the same time something changing in the brain, in the cognitive processing of information and beliefs that you have.”

It’s those changes that Dr Hohwy is hopeful can be described by scientific methods and revealed through analysis of experience.
