HASH(0x9d40c144) out of 5 stars Breathtaking Aug. 20 2010
By Bodhi Heeren - Published on
Format: Paperback
The dominant paradigm in to-days psychology is overtly mental and verbal, believing that psyhological and emotional disturbances can best be relieved by cognitive strategies. And also amongst spiritual seekers are there a growing tendency to focus primarily on the mental and intellectual, like advaita and people like James Schwartz, Tony Parsons, Ramesh Balsekar, Nathan Gill: just say you are 'free' and eveything else will follow....

So the revolutionary insights from the therapeutic movement of the 70s and 80s with dynamic meditations (Osho) and various adventurous therapies like Primal or Rebirthing seem to have been largely forgotten and put aside.

In this wonderful book Stan and Christina Grof argue convincingly for the utmost importance of dealing with the physical aspects of our nature, for catharsis and abreaction if we want to reach a state of true physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Combining - as usual from Grof - lots of convincing real life stories with penetrating intellectual insights and building a strong case for the benefit of holotropic states (states beyond the ususal limited ego-world) and their healing potential.

A very well-written book and - as usual - filled with comprehensivev evidence for the importance of a new world view and a devastaing blow to the pretensions of the ruling scientific paradigm and its naive and fanatic belief in materialistic monism.

Essential reading for all seekers, explorers and psychonauts.

HASH(0x9da8b120) out of 5 stars Embracing the Beyond Within: Birth and Transcendence in the New Psychology Aug. 10 2010
By Renn Butler - Published on
Format: Paperback
"We are not human beings having spiritual experiences, we are spiritual beings having human experiences." Teilhard de Chardin, 1975

The long-awaited volume by Stanislav and Christina Grof is the first comprehensive text on the theory and practice of their new strategy of psychotherapy and self-exploration. Cowritten by this remarkable husband-wife partnership and supported by over eighty combined years of research into non-ordinary or holotropic states of consciousness--from holos="wholeness" and trepein="moving toward"--this is sure to be a cherished addition to the libraries of intelligent seekers around the world and one of the most influential books of the decade.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in emotional and psychosomatic healing, self-exploration, depth psychology, spirituality, comparative religions, or the relationship between consciousness and the global crisis. It represents the distilled life work of two of the most pioneering and hard-working visionaries on the planet. The Grofs have paid their dues with decades of caring service. More than a permanent addition to the canon of psychological and spiritual literature, this book is a testament to the enduring creative potency of loving partnership.

HASH(0x9d6016f0) out of 5 stars Holotropic Breathwork - the book Feb. 10 2014
By just bob - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The program is wonderful and very healing, but the book is an overview, with feedback of how much it has helped people. It does not offer any information, and is really a sales pitch for the program.

HASH(0x9daa9348) out of 5 stars Someone with a Mental Illness. Dec 23 2011
By WritingTales - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great book for someone with, or a family with a member whom has been diagnosed with a Mental illness. I'm Schizophrenic, and this really dives into some old, and recent studies that Grof, and Frued ( mentioned ) practiced on patients. It gives are a great outlook into Holotropic Breathwork, the power it has to heal the mind, and get into your consciousness on different levels.
For someone like me, it was hard to keep my attention. But overall it's still a 4/5 star book.
