The Adventure of Self-Discovery (#W127)

What is the origin of individual behavior and personality? Stanislav Grof proposes that individuals have systems of condensed experience (COEX systems) which become anchored to aspects of the birth trauma. In Part I of this program, he describes four different basic stages of the birth process and shows how they relate to attitudes developed later in life.

In Part Two he discusses the development of his "holotropic" approach to therapy as an outgrowth of his early work with psychedelic drugs. Simple breathing exercises enable individuals to achieve an altered state which can lead to self-healing of emotional blocks. The unconscious, according to Grof, cannot be limited to the merely personal and biographical aspects of self, but can be seen from a transpersonal perspective as being identified with all of creation.

Stanislav Grof is author of LSD Psychotherapy, Beyond the Brain, and The Adventure of Self-Discovery and co-author of The Human Encounter with Death. A former professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins University, he has been scholar in residence for fourteen years at the Esalen Institute. With his wife, Christina Grof, he has developed a psychotherapeutic approach known as Holotropic Therapy.

Dr. Stanislav Grof makes the case that the experience of those in altered "holotropic" states—through psychedelic drugs or through certain breathing exercises—are virtually indistinguishable from classic mystical experiences. He maintains that the worldview cultivated in such states of consciousness says much about both the depths of the human psyche and about reality itself.

EXCERPT: The Adventure of Self-Discovery

"A person who is going through a transpersonal opening, a spiritual opening, goes through a process that combines regression and progression. In some sense you go back and you have to complete the unfinished things from your history, and at the same time new dimensions are
opening for you."
--Stanislav Grof
