Additional Information

Dr. Grof's consciousness research over the last five decades has shown that the deepest roots of trauma often lie in experiences from birth or in events from human history that have not yet been resolved and are still active in the collective unconscious. This unresolved personal or collective history then expresses through an individual or group that has some connection to the earlier events. Traditional therapeutic approaches which focus only on events in the personal biography or tranquilizing medications do not access or heal these deeper wounds in the human psyche. From a more general perspective, Dr. Grof examines the broad problems of violence and greed in society and finds that the widespread fear and aggression between individuals and groups may also originate in large part from the unconscious acting-out of unresolved historical traumas from the collective unconscious. The message of Dr. Grof and this book is, however, a hopeful one: there are approaches to therapy which utilize a specific non-ordinary state of consciousness which enables individuals, with support, to access and heal these deeper levels of trauma from the personal and collective unconscious. He has named this state of consciousness Holotropic, a composite word which means “oriented toward wholeness” or “moving in the direction of wholeness” (from the Greek holos = whole and trepo, trepein = moving toward or in the direction of something). Dr. Grof describes various approaches to achieving this Holotropic state and using it for healing, with his focus on Holotropic Breathwork, which he developed with his partner Christina, and psychedelic therapy, which he pioneered in the 1950s and which is now experiencing a renaissance of clinical research for treatment of addictions and PTSD.

This book came about as the result of Dr. Grof receiving the prestigious "Vision 97" award from Dagmar and Vaclav Havel in 2007. As a recipient he was asked to prepare a publication representing his best work. This book is that presentation - Grof's own choice of a best-of representation of his most important areas of scientific interests and contributions, and in a 50+ year career this covers a wide range of ideas and insights!

Grof's research has put him at the cutting edge of Transpersonal Psychology (he coined the term in the late 60's), in it's emergence from Maslow's humanistic psychology, which means he has rubbed shoulders with some the best and brightest of thinkers in the past half century. He has also conducted vast research into non-ordinary states of consciousness (vast in quantity and scope, as with his high dose LSD clinical studies), and so has much to teach us on realms less accessible to our regular daily experience.

This book was amazing to read after going through a Holotrophic workshop. It helped me understand my experiences during the workshop better and clearer. I achieved substantial healing and my experience was cathartic. I admire Dr. Grof and his work.
Grof's writing is spectacular, his understanding of consciousness is beyond anything else available to read and allows for a non-academic to understand & process
Highly recommended
