Stanislav Grof developed Holotropic Breathwork, which is described as:

"An approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, anthropology, various depth psychologies, transpersonal psychology, Eastern spiritual practices, and mystical traditions of the world." (Wikipedia)

His ideas are presented in the description of IONS audio Essential Shift Series (2006):

"We can clear unresolved traumas, patterns, and fears and begin to live as more peaceful planetary citizens. A multi-leveled understanding of psychology that goes deeper than post-natal biography is key. By opening the door to the further reaches of consciousness and creating rites of passage that take us through a meaningful encounter with death, our view expands, our consciousness connects with others, and we shift beyond Newtonian/Cartesian understandings into a more sacred view of the universe."

We will discuss Dr. Grof's contribution and explore the implication of experiencing nonordinary states of consciousness. Bring your thoughts and share your experiences.
