Stanislav Grof - Psychology of the Future: Lessons from Modern Consciousness Research

gaiamedia

In the last five decades, psychedelic therapy and other avenues of modern consciousness research have revealed a rich array of "anomalous" experiences and observations that have undermined some of the most basic assumptions of modern psychiatry, psychology, and psychotherapy concerning consciousness and the human psyche in health and disease. Many of these observations are so radical that they question the basic philosophical assumptions of materialistic science.

In this lecture, we will review these remarkable data and explore the most important major revisions that would have to be made in our understanding of consciousness, of the human psyche, and of the nature of reality to respond to these conceptual challenges.
