It’s rare to find a textbook that is both extremely informative and enjoyable to read. Psychology of the Future has to be one of the first ones I’ve ever come across.

This book is a condensed version of the work of Stan Grof. All of his previous books and research on psychedelic therapy and spiritual exploration are exposed here in basic form. I recommend this as an intro to his work and to anyone who may be interested in the use of psychedelics for healing and self-exploration.

Специфічна, проте пізнавальна в пляні психольогії книга. Дає цікаві інсайти. Несе людям неупереджений та прогресивний погляд на те, що взагалі тут відбувається.

Specific, but cognitive book in psychological sphere. Gives interesting insights. Also brings to people an unbiased and progressive view of what's happening here.

Η διασύνδεση της περιγεννετικής περιόδου του βρέφους με το υπερατομικό πεδίο και ο ρόλος των ψυχογενών συμπτωμάτων στο σύνολο του ψυχοσωματικού χάρτη του ανθρώπου. Ο Stan Grof επιτελεί πραγματικά μια βαθειά διείσδυση στον όρο "θεραπεία", ο οποίος υπερβαίνει τις συνήθεις προσεγγίσεις των δυτικών συστημάτων ψυχιατρικής και ψυχολογίας.

Οι θεραπείες με ολοτροπικές καταστάσεις συνείδησης θεραπεύουν πρωτίστως σε ενεργειακό επίπεδο, διότι όπως άλλωστε και προσωπικά πιστεύω εδώ και χρόνια, το καθετί

Amazingly written, Grof gives us transcendental wisdom. The only thing necessary is honesty, an open mind and courage.

Grof is known for his early studies of LSD and its effects on the psyche—the field of psychedelic psychotherapy. Building on his observations while conducting LSD research and on Otto Rank's theory of birth trauma, Grof constructed a theoretical framework for pre- and perinatal psychology and transpersonal psychology in which LSD trips and other powerfully emotional experiences were mapped onto ...more
