Psyche Unbound: The Legacy of Stanislav Grof (Online)

Mark Ryan & Pamela Stockton

Event details

Stanislav Grof “is recognized by many as having both inherited and extended the great revolution in psychology begun by Freud and Jung.” So write Richard Tarnas and Sean Kelly in a new homage volume issued in honor of Grof’s 90th birthday. Psyche Unbound includes essays from luminaries such as Joseph Campbell, Huston Smith, Fritjof Capra and Ervin Lazlo, along with current researchers. In this two-week course, two veteran students of Grof will draw on this volume, Grof’s extensive writings, and their personal experience with him as teacher as they examine the impact of his profound explorations of non-ordinary states of consciousness on psychotherapy and on our broader understanding of reality.

Recommended Reading: Richard Tarnas and Sean Kelly, eds, Psyche Unbound: Essays in Honor of Stanislav Grof.
