What is TIAMAT?

The Integrative Approach and Methodology of Active Transformation a.k.a. TIAMAT is an ecology of practices for wisdom cultivation currently undergoing active research through practice. It draws from performance practice, Eastern applied philosophy and contemporary research in the fields to neuroscience, cognitive science and post-Jungian psychoanalysis. By focusing on four key cognitive mechanics, it aims to evolve into a dynamic system which facilitates an individual's capacity for self-transformation.

This page is new.

Research is still ongoing and we are working hard to make sure that developments are highly scientifically plausible and applicable to multiple domains. More information will be made available on a rolling basis on this page. If you would like to participate in, contribute to, collaborate in, or support the research in any way, please feel free to reach out to me at ethan@5tomidnight.org.

I hope that TIAMAT can be an open platform where collective wisdom can come together to develop a practice that is impactful, accessible and transformative.
