A 4-part series investigating how Osho transformed modern psychology. Osho’s contribution to contemporary therapy is not acknowledged, yet he had deeply influenced all leading therapists of the Human Potential Movement.

Today our guest is Swami Anand Vikrant. He took sannyas in 1988. Vikrant is a counsellor and psychotherapist, trained at the Northern Illinois University and at the Osho Multiversity in Pune. He is a member of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, Transpersonal Psychology, and the Association for Body Psychotherapy.

Vikrant is the author of 6 books (amazon.com) and numerous articles on awakening of consciousness and personal development. He has taught in various psychology programmes including the Department of Counselling, Adult and Health Education at the Northern Illinois University.

He is a former research consultant on Active Meditations in Sydney, Australia, and has been training therapists and facilitators in Humanistic Transpersonal Psychology for more than 20 years. He is also the founder of the Experiential Center for Human Development and the creator of the ‘Returning to the Source’ workshop, Biodynamic Structural Massage, and Somatic Emotional Processing.

Vikrant has dedicated 10 years on a research project documenting how Osho influenced contemporary psychotherapy and modern psychology. He tells the story of how the leaders of the Human Potential Movement learned from Osho and developed innovative therapy groups under Osho’s guidance. It is a systematic, accurate and evidence-based account of how most of the modern therapies practised today derive from the daring and pioneering work of the therapists who were deeply impacted by Osho. centroexperiencial.com
