Who We Are

Mission Statement

Cuyamungue, The Felicitas D. Goodman Institute is an independent, not-for-profit educational organization [Section 501 (c) (3)] committed to transforming consciousness through the ancient wisdom of Ecstatic Trance Postures. We are committed to the study of “ASC” Altered States of Consciousness as a natural extension of the human experience. The Institute promotes public awareness and teaches the powerful use and effectiveness of these postures throughout the world.  The Institute continues to cultivate new avenues of learning, using a prescribed method by which ordinary individuals are able to enter an expanded state of consciousness, and promote the safe use of this method. Governed by a Board of Directors, not compensated for its services, the Institute also benefits from the guidance of its professional advisors, who represent a wide field of expertise and experience.  We are also dedicated to preserving our land in Santa Fe, New Mexico as a sacred center and worldwide archival and research headquarters Our Founder – Dr Felicitas Goodman

We are proud of the scope of work we have already accomplished, but this is just the beginning, and there is much more to do! Here’s how you can participate:    More information
