It's great to read a properly researched scientific book on a subject that has been demonised and marginalised by fear mongers and lazy journalism over the past few decades. Treated responsibly, the subject of LSD research has shown to be, and can continue to be, of tremendous benefit to many people for health, spiritual or recreational pursuits, amongst many others. This book is a window into how this world should be brought back into the open, and treated responsibly, will aid in the evolution of us all in understanding who we are and where we can go.

A very interesting read for anyone wishing to understand LSD (psychedelics) and the transpersonal/transcendental realm. Whilst the book is tilted toward Stan's extensive experience in the therapeutic benefits for psychotherapy, it offers huge insight and classification of the phenomenal experiences encountered with LSD in the transcendental realm. Few authors can compare with this experience and as such i have found this extremely helpful for organizing/rationalizing my own transcendental experiences using psychedelics, meditation and those which have occurred spontaneously.

Its fundamental premise is the human mind is an epiphenomena of our spiritual-consciousness connection to the source of all life. Of course we are all born or raised into amnesia of this connection - which becomes part of life's riddle to then figure out. That in some individuals (needing psychotherapy) the process from conception-gestation-birthing and the early years of life can be incredibly traumatic, which leads to mental scars, which further accumulate "bad experiences" to compound the initial trauma, leading to severe dysfunction in life. The therapeutic benefit of LSD and regressional psychotherapy helps that individual become aware of the true nature of reality, their experiences and to spiritually heal. As a vet i have huge admiration for any form of healing and Stanislav is a great healer and shaman in my view. As one of the founders of the 4th force in psychology (transpersonal field) we have much to learn from Stanislav Grof.

This book is a MUST for those wishing to learn about the transcendental/transpersonal realm, and without any religious-spiritual biases. The corollary of this is you begin to see how religion-spiritual faiths happen(ed) and that in itself is a HUGE wake-up call! A GREAT Doorway to the meaning of life! Thanks Stanislav Grof for being a brave pioneer and leader of this cause without dogma:)

Very interesting book, reedition of his earlier works. Comprehensive and highly accessible. Groundbreaking and foundational work with LSD therapy resulting here in a new (not so new anymore) description or understanding of human "identity" and "consciousness".

This is a brilliant book, although a little deep at time but once read over again it makes the subject matter very clear. What a legend Grof really is.

Possibly the most fascinating book I've ever read- grof's writing style and subject matter continue to astound me. The book has all sorts of fascinating written accounts and pictures to support his research into LSD. You just have to read it and get blown away.

Have yet to read the book although book seems to be very interesting from a nice fair view of things rather than the downer side, also has an awesome cover design
