About Dr. Stephen Wolisnky 

Stephen H. Wolinsky, Ph.D., (Narayan) is a direct disciple of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj and lived in India and Asia for more than six and a half years. He has taught Self-Enquiry and Kashmir Shaivism (Tantra) from 1982 to the present.

As a trajectory Quantum Psychology was founded in 1985 with Advaita-Vedanta and Buddhism's Heart Sutra and Diamond Sutra as its context. Quantum Psychology integrated Western Psychology, Advaita-Vedanta, Quantum Physics, Neuro-Science, Kashmir Shaivism, Self Enquiry and Buddhism. The purpose of Quantum Psychology was to act as a trajectory enabling the “realization” of the One Mind, sometimes labeled as Consciousness (Quantum Consciousness), or Buddha Mindsometimes labeled as Emptiness. Quantum Psychology attempted to update many of the ancient cultural metaphors and pointers bringing them into present time language thus making "their understanding" more accessible.

About Dr. Donald Hoffman

Donald David Hoffman (born December 29, 1955) is an American cognitive psychologist and popular science author. He is a professor in the Department of Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine, with joint appointments in the Department of Philosophy, the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science, and the School of Computer Science.

Hoffman studies consciousness, visual perception and evolutionary psychology using mathematical models and psychophysical experiments. His research subjects include facial attractiveness, the recognition of shape, the perception of motion and color, the evolution of perception, and the mind–body problem. He has co-authored two technical books; Observer Mechanics: A Formal Theory of Perception (1989) offers a theory of consciousness and its relationship to physics; Automotive Lighting and Human Vision (2005) applies vision science to vehicle lighting. His book Visual Intelligence: How We Create What We See (1998) presents the modern science of visual perception to a broad audience. His 2015 TED Talk, "Do we see reality as it is?" argues that our perceptions have evolved to hide reality from us.
