A Connection Experience or Connection Event, depending on your perspective, is an experience of Connection that is sufficiently above one's average daily CQ as to be perceived by the individual as a qualitatively different state of awareness/consciousness/being. The LP identifies several different Connection Experience Types and many different Connection Outcomes (see below).

Notes

Connection experiences may be positive (i.e. zenith experiences) or negative (i.e. nadir experiences). Whether or not a connection experience is a zenith experience or a nadir experience depends in large measure on how the individual receives the revelation/expansion/insight from the experience. Even very glorious truths and insights can be experienced with terror if the physical unit is unprepared or if the thinking processes have been corrupted by indoctrination and Toxic Socialization.

Dreams can be connection events. "It is not denied...that a divine influx could take place in dreams..." (Jung, 1938: 22)

A CE may be characterized along four axis, these being quality (Zenith Experience Nadir Experience), intensity (see Consciousness Quotient), duration, and content (Sosteric, MCD).

The Q-Scale may be used to estimate the intensity and quality of a connection event.

A connection event may occur spontaneously under conditions of relaxation and deep contentment. R. M. Bucke: "His mind...was calm and peaceful. He was in a state of quiet, almost passive enjoyment. All at once, without warning of any kind, he found himself wrapped around as it were by a flame-colored cloud."[1]

A connection experience may be facilitated via Connection Technique, with a Connection Supplement, and by exploiting naturally occurring Connection Supplements.

Connection experiences may be understood neurologically, as what occurs when the Default Mode Network (otherwise known as the Bodily Ego of the individual's brain releases control and allows Consciousness to flow into the Physical Unit (Sosteric, SOA1). Release may occur naturally, under conditions of aligned safety, or it can be forced by exploiting powerful Connection Supplements.

Incidence

67% of psychotherapists surveyed indicated having seen at least one client during a twelve month period who had reported a Connection Experience.[2]
