A Salute to Stan Grof on his 90th Birthday
Dr. Stanislav Grof, M.D., Ph.D. is a pioneer, explorer, and world-renowned theoretician and practitioner of the transformative potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness. His groundbreaking theories influenced the integration of Western science with his brilliant mapping of the transpersonal dimension. Stan is well-known for his seminal work with LSD as a psychotherapeutic tool, beginning with his first LSD trip in 1943 followed four years later with a 1947 scientific paper that caused a stir in the psycho-science world. His research on and use of LSD in his psychiatric practice foreshadowed today’s recognition that LSD can be effective for the treatment of PTSD.
Stan was the first person to recognize that the results of LSD use for psychoanalysis were the same as what spiritual teachings have shown for thousands of years regarding non-ordinary states of consciousness. This led to his creating an award-winning cartography of the psyche that coined the term “ holotropic" as characteristic of non-ordinary states of consciousness such as meditative, mystical, or psychedelic experiences, all states which aim towards wholeness and the totality of existence.
For the past 50 years, Stan has continued his exploration of the many states of mind that can be explored without drugs by using certain breathing techniques. This holotropic breathwork (Grof® Breathwork) is an experiential method of self-exploration and psychotherapy that combines and integrates various elements from modern consciousness research, depth psychology, transpersonal psychology, Eastern spiritual philosophies, shamanism and other native healing practices. Through his Grof® Legacy Training, students can develop theoretical and practical knowledge and skills in a large category of non-ordinary states that have a healing, transformative, heuristic, and evolutionary potential.
Stan turns 90 this July 1, Ubiquity University is collaborating with Stan and his Grof Legacy Training to celebrate his enormous contribution to the world’s understanding of how each of us can enter transcendent states of consciousness. His research and study have provided us with evidence that these “non-ordinary” states can grant us more robust health, an increased enthusiasm for life, an expanded worldview, and a sense of the sacred that is universal, nondenominational, and all inclusive.
In this session, award winning film director and producer Susan Hess Logeias and Jim Garrison will moderate a panel with Jim Hickman, Professor of Neuroscience at Ubiquity University who has known Stan for nearly 40 years, Michael Murphy, founder of Esalen Institute who invited Stan to develop his holotropic breath work in the 1970s, and Rick Tarnas, Professor of Cosmology and Philosophy at the California Institute of Integral Studies who worked with Stan at Esalen for many years.
