Publisher's Summary

In every mystical wisdom tradition, nonordinary states of consciousness have served as essential tools for discovering why we are here and how we can live richer, more meaningful lives. For over 40 years, Stanislav Grof has tested and brought these methods into the field of modern psychology. Are emotional states and behavioral patterns explained solely by brain chemistry and life experience - or could they be expressions of far vaster universal energies? Which specific mind states most powerfully accelerate integration and healing of the self? And how do you access these states? In The Transpersonal Vision, Grof answers these questions - and raises many others - in a stunning summation of his groundbreaking life's work. You will learn about transpersonal psychology's daring forays into the worlds of the shaman and the mystic; how your perinatal (birth and prebirth) experience profoundly affect you even today; what past-life, near-death, and out-of-body phenomena teach us about our life purpose; and much more.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "A Different Perspective"

    I really enjoyed listening to this; as someone who used LSD personally and professionally as a psychiatrist when it was legal(!), Grof maintains that the worlds of psychiatry and psychology are far too small. In essence he suggests that 'breakdown' may also be seen as spiritual crisis and 'breakthrough', spiritual emergence from the spiritual emergency. A challenging book for psychiatric 'dogma', and full of hope in my opinion.

    "Phenomenal Overview of Work"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Transpersonal Vision to be better than the print version?

    Great overview of Stansilav Grof's body of work and key concepts. This is an audio recording of him in a lecture setting.

    Story
    "Everyone should listen to this--reshape your world"

    Narrated with the gentle voice of Grof himself. This presentation is DENSE with research, materials, and ideas abut non-ordinary states. Grof presents the perinatal matrices, details shamanic and psychedelic imports to culture, shares his research in psychedelic therapies including LSD and Holotropic Breathwork, examines spirituality v religion, and poses and explores many hypotheses of the nature of the existence of human consciousness. A must-listen for those interested in non-ordindary states of consciousness, shamanic cultures, and the history of human relationship to psychedelic substances.

    Story
    "Starts slow, but finishes strong."

    This book was highly recommended. I couldn't see why after the first few chapters, and I stopped listening for a couple months. I finally came back to it and was rewarded with a good finish. The first part was slow, but it sets the framework by which the rest of the book is constructed. All in all, it was an interesting book, and am glad I finished it.
