The remarkable achievement of Stanislav Grof was to engage and then contribute to the great transformation of world view of our age, experiencing that paradigm crisis directly within the crucible of his therapeutic research, and eventually bringing forth both a radically expanded map of the human psyche and an extraordinarily powerful method of psychotherapy. Acting as a kind of psychospiritual midwife, Grof combined a radical openness to the mystery of the psyche and trust in the healing power of the unconscious with a willingness to explore, and help others explore, an astonishing range of non-ordinary states of consciousness. The complex, multidimensional understanding of the psyche that emerged has offered depth psychology not only a resolution of its foundational schism between Freud and Jung, but also a nuanced integration of East and West, ancient mystical traditions and contemporary science, and finally opening the innermost depths of the psyche to the cosmos itself.
