The current growth and success of MDMA clinical trials is part of Stan Grof’s legacy. Stan’s work inspired us to change the direction of our careers. What he and Christina taught us about trusting and supporting each individual’s healing intelligence formed the foundation of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy in our research. We will discuss Stan’s influence on our work, summarize the design and results of MDMA clinical trials for posttraumatic stress disorder, and share quotes from research participants describing the profound effects of this “Holotropic” approach to healing.
