About HPLeftHPLeft represents an attempt to define an entirely new position within the political spectrum. Since the 1960s, a revolution in consciousness has taken place in America. This revolution has been spurred by the widespread dissemination of: a) the spiritual literature and practices of India, China, Japan, Africa and Native America; b) the transpersonal psychology of Carl Jung, Roberto Assagioli and Stanislav Grof; c) the cross-cultural mythological perspective of Joseph Campbell and others; d) the continued emergence of non-denominational, spiritually-based recovery programs like Alcoholics Anonymous; e) the return from obscurity of wisdom technologies such as astrology; f) and, the embrace of whole-person and non-traditional approaches to physical well-being. To this day, the implications of this ongoing revolution have yet to have much of an impact on the political landscape here in America. I think it's time we changed that situation.
