Expand your understanding of what it means to be human through an encounter with the pioneering thought of psychologist Stanislav Grof. One of the key founders of transpersonal psychology, Grof has explored the frontiers of consciousness and won the admiration of such noted thinkers as Joseph Campbell, who wrote that "I know of no work that so well incorporates the findings of Freud, Jung, and Rank." This series of lectures will explore Grof's original map of consciousness, his theories of "perinatal" and "transpersonal" domains of the mind, and the implications of his work for psychotherapy—and for our notions of the nature of mind and of reality itself. NOTE: During the final lecture, Dr. Grof will interact with students via live Skype video link.
