Access the power of non-ordinary states
and shamanic consciousness to
transform your life.
Open to new insights in psychology and spirituality that are profoundly effective in creating
lasting healing and growth for
yourself and others.
Psychology has for too long reduced us to our lowest-common denominators. Much of the depth, power and inspiration we experience at the core of our lives has been written off, with consciousness dismissed as a mere “epi-phenomenon” of the brain, and scientists focusing primarily on behavior and cognition.
Fortunately, research at the leading edge of psychology has opened a portal into an exciting new realm of possibilities that validates many of the insights of history’s great spiritual teachers — and leads us into a deeper, more accurate and empowering view of ourselves.
In this paradigm, consciousness is not limited to your body or even to your singular life. You can expand your identity to a cosmic scale, explore other dimensions, and access information from what appear to be past lives.
You are not limited by time, space and causality in the way we once thought.
Stanislav Grof has been one of the earliest and most accomplished pioneers of these realms through his decades of legal research into the therapeutic use of psychedelics and his innovative understanding of non-ordinary states based on experiential forms of psychotherapy, as well as studies of art, shamanism and myth.
From this work has emerged a new “cartography” of the human psyche that accounts for our birth experiences as well as transpersonal domains more typically explored by shamans and healers.
By exploring these new understandings, you gain a deeper appreciation for your potential, a more profound vision for your life, and an expanded toolkit for clearing old traumas from both your psyche and body.
Grof’s brilliant mind and encyclopedic knowledge of the various schools of psychology enabled him to piece everything together into one coherent whole. Out of his many decades integrating the insights, research, and practices of transformational traditions from around the world, he’s developed a unique and empowering vision of the psychology of the future.
This view ultimately liberates you from limited ideas of who you truly are.
Join him for a unique hour to explore this new paradigm and its implications for your personal growth and any transformational work you may do with others.
- How accessing the power of non-ordinary states allows us to develop a new understanding of shamanic consciousness (which help us go beyond talk therapy into life-changing experiences)
- How to work with the “inner healer” as a compass to guide us into the precise next step we need in our journey of growth
- An expanded map of psyche and cosmos, including the nature and role of transpersonal experiences
- The importance of our birth experience in setting the foundation for our growth and development (and why clearing birth trauma can be so powerful for healing)
- The fascinating implications of this research for understanding our place in the “cosmic game”
You’ll be amazed at Dr. Grof’s profound knowledge and how his bold new vision transcends more limited views of psychology and spirit.
You’ll also be among the first to hear about an exciting new 7-week program in which you can explore the psychology of the future firsthand.
What People Are Saying About
Dr. Grof’s positive message of universal spirituality, hardwired in the brain and unlocked during the mystical psychedelic state, should be front page news... He shows how visionary artists are transcribing the present World Soul’s birth trauma and by sharing the discoveries of consciousness research he creates a new context for viewing, appreciating and awakening through visionary art.
— Alex Grey, Visionary Artist and Co-founder of the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors
After Sigmund Freud, who introduced the unconscious, the libido and guilt into the interpretation of art; and Carl Gustav Jung, who introduced the collective unconscious and the archetypes; we now have Stanislav Grof, who widens the horizons by bringing in the perinatal and the transpersonal dimensions of human experience. Grof is unquestionably the third giant in the psychological interpretation of art in the modern age.

Grof’s insights into the mysterious sources of artistic inspiration and the enchanting power of great art are presented in the form of an engaging narrative covering the history of depth-psychological interpretations of art, a concise overview of his revolutionary and expansive "cartography of the psyche" gleaned from decades of consciousness research, and a compelling analysis of the spell-binding effect of Giger’s visionary life-work.
