LSD Psychotherapy, by Stanislav Grof
    #658062 - 06/01/02 09:08 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I read this book a few years ago. It shaped my understanding of the psychedelic experience. The book is a collection and interpretation of clinical psychotherapy sessions using LSD.
Stanislav Graf was born and raised in eastern Europe. In the early fifties he came to the states to join US researchers in an attempt to unlock the secrets of recently isolated LSD. Stan pioneered LSD Psychotherapy in a clinical setting.

The book explains re-occuring themes in psychedelic states. The therapy was applied toward people of thereputic need. But the simularities to my own and I believe everyones psychedelic states leads me to recommend this book.

This book is written in a text book type format. Many medical terms are used. I suggest only those with basic medical understanding w/ a scientific background read this book. I think you will find it an excellent read. I will also post a review of The Holotropic Mind which was also written by the same author.

Thanks for the correction. I always have a hard time remembering the spelling of his last name.

I'm in the middle of reading this book - again. I bought it a couple of years ago and pick it up from time to time. I plan on finishing this time. As a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist, I wish I could participate in this kind of therapy. Alas, it is illegal in the USA. If you haven't read Grof's 'Realms of the Human Unconscious: Observations from LSD Research,' then I recommend it. It clearly describes the most profound aspect of his work - the Basic Perinatal Matrices. I struggled alone for 20 years after re-experiencing my physical birth until I found Gorf's work. I finally understood. It was not an imaginary experience...it was the real event all over again, and 'I' as a witnessing (at the time) 19 year, 360 day old man, completely vanished. When it was over, and I opened my eyes, I expected to see myself as a neonate. I also couldn't understand how 'I' was still Mark, because I had surely 'died' and been reborn anew. That was July 4, 1973 - Independence Day - and the beginning of a new life for me.

LSD PSYCHOTHERAPY by Stanislav Grof is THE book on Tripping & understanding it.

I'd recommend it to ANYONE, ESPECIALLY NEWBIES that're wondering what they will be getting themselfes into and VETERANS who're still wondering WTF goes down in the hours of imbiding.

EVERYBODY MUST READ IT !!! Sure, there's alot of medical/technical stuff inthere but I think almost anyone can hear the Music, especially those with Tripping experience. I first read it a few years ago (copied it whole in the local library) & it made both my understanding & actual Tripping like 10x BETTER!!!

I completely dig his "Abstract-Biographical-Perinatal-Transpersonal" views and see it happen over & over again with the people I trip with.
But lately... Those kosher 200-400mcg doses of LSD, week after week he prescribed to his patients...

I'm a Lowdose guy & his regimen strikes me as effective, but abit ruthless. I could understand some people would view him as a sort of "Camp Doc" (seen that on the Net) but I'd be thrilled to be on his couch!

I'm starting a Grof collection. Are there online textfiles of his books known to any of you? I've searched & searched for them.

LSD PSYCHOTHERAPY: The latter word is abit of a turnoff to most, but I can safely say: READ THAT BOOK!!! YOU WON'T REGRET IT !!!

I've decided to start experimenting with low doses (level 1-2) of hallucinogens as an aid to self-psychotherapy. I've searched the net for use full how-to material on this topic and this book comes up as number #1. Since this thread is rather old and I just ordered the book itself, I was wondering if anybody else has read it and would like to share his insight?

Thanks!

Grof is a genius.

Himself and his work is a real blessing for our world.

I only wish there were more people who did what he does.

Yeah I learned about him from Hoffman's Potion, but I didn't know he was such a stellar figure in the world of psychology. I've been looking for a book to read and I just my author.

Man I love the Shroomery
