About Christian de Quincey
Let me introduce myself: I am Christian de Quincey, teacher, author, writing coach, and international speaker. My focus is consciousness — the essence of who we are and what we can become. I have been studying, practicing, and teaching the noetic arts and sciences for the past 25 years.
This website is a way for me to guide and support others to transform their own lives — by developing their natural “noetic” gifts.
“Noetic” refers to intuitive ways of knowing — how we feel and think, intuit, and imagine. It’s all about being in relationship: with yourself, with others, and with the natural world.
“Noetics” is also about naturally expanding consciousness of our place in the larger scheme of things, and how we can realize our full potential as caring and compassionate human beings.
If you ever think about any of these things, you might be interested to learn how and why I came to write a novel explaining my understanding of consciousness. It is called Deep Spirit: Cracking the Noetic Code. The whole idea came in a flash of insight — in two short weeks 400 pages came flowing out (the published version is shorter!). Learn more about the ideas I express in the book.
For 12 years, I was editor of the IONS Review and Shift, the magazine published by the Institute of Noetic Sciences in California. During that time, I completed my doctoral studies in philosophy and religion at the California Institute of Integral Studies, and co-authored The Scientific Exploration of Consciousness with the late Willis Harman.
Since then, I have spent most of my time putting into practice for myself what I have learned about how the noetic arts and sciences can help people access higher levels of awareness and understanding.
I offer online and in-person tutorials — individually as well as in workshops. I have also started a Noetic Book Club you can join to explore these subjects by reading what other authors have written. If you love books (and movies) as much as I do, you might be interested in joining the club, which meets online and in face-to-face groups.
