5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another excellent and profound book by a living legend...😉
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 October 2020
Yet another excellent, profound and illuminating book by Stanislav Grof that I'm proud to add to my library. Like all the best books I've read over the years it's one I found hard to put down once I'd started to read it and devoured its contents in a couple of days and am left thirsting for more holotropic knowledge from this living legend in modern consciousness research and have decided on the cosmic game as my next purchase. Obviously this book is more a collection of amazing stories and experiences from his many years of research , many of which I'd read of before from his other works but it's still a worthy purchase and would be a good if not fantastical introduction to his work and thought as some of his other books can seem a bit too deep and academic such as beyond the brain which was the first book of his that I read several decades ago. One thing I learned from this volume though which surprised me was how many psychedelic plants, substances and experiences he has had himself, not that I've anything against that just that I'd always presumed his research and thought was based more on the observations of his patients and clients experiences when psychedelics were legal, not surprising then that they had to develop holotropic breathwork as an alternative way of exploration to remain within the law! Just say know!... ******
