The psychological dynamics of authoritarianism and its power as a threat to democracy

Dr. Diana Alstad is an author and lecturer. A Woodrow Wilson Fellow, she received a PhD from Yale in 1971 and was a professor at Duke University in the humanities. Alstad taught the first Women’s Studies courses at Yale and Duke, co-founded New Haven Women’s Liberation in 1968, and was on the board of the Veteran Feminists of America from 1998 to 2004.

And we have Dr. Alstad’s partner for almost 40 years, Dr. Joel Kramer. Joel is the author of a early seminal work The Passionate Mind in 1974. He did his postgraduate work in philosophy and psychology at the University of Florida, NYU, and Columbia and was one of the early pioneers of transpersonal thought on the faculty at Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California. His work in mind/body approaches to Yoga as a means of self-transformation over the years has become an integral part of modern American yoga.

In addition to Diana and Joel being pioneers in the birthing of American yoga, they are also the authors of the Guru Papers: Masks of Authoritarian Power – written in 1993 which has become the standard classic text on spiritual authoritarianism and the misuse of power for personal gain and aggrandizement.
