Presents an array of data and speculation in support of the timely demand that Western science acknowledge consciousness and its many non-ordinary states. Stanislav Grof is the author of "Realms of the Human Consciousness".
The mind, according to Grof, is essentially "holotropic," that is, like a hologram wherein the whole can be reconstructed from a tiny part. The book's first part analyzes memories of life in the womb and the painful process of birth. This is largely a rehash of Grof's Realms of the Human Unconscious.
