DESCRIPTION

Feelings of oneness with other people, nature, and the universe. Encounters with extraterrestrials, deities, and demons. Out-of-body experiences and past-life memories. Science casts a skeptical eye. But Dr. Stanislav Grof—the psychiatric researcher who cofounded transpersonal psychology—believes otherwise.

When the Impossible Happens presents Dr. Grof 's mesmerizing firsthand account of over 50 years of inquiry into waters uncharted by classical psychology, one that will leave readers questioning the very fabric of our existence.

From his first LSD session that gave him a glimpse of cosmic consciousness to his latest work with Holotropic Breathwork, When the Impossible Happens will amaze readers with vivid explorations of topics such as:

  • Temptations of a Non-Local Universe—experiments in astral projection
  • Praying Mantis in Manhattan and other tales of synchronicity
  • Trailing Clouds of Glory—remembering birth and prenatal life
  • Dying and Beyond—survival of consciousness after death

When the Impossible Happens is an incredible opportunity to journey beyond ordinary consciousness, guaranteed to shake the foundations of what we assume to be reality, and sure to offer a new vision of our human potential.

Review for When the Impossible Happens

Fascinating book, made me think about psychedelics in a different way. It is a must read for anyone interested in using acid for psychoIogical work. Basically it's a pretty stripped down biography but an interesting one. Do wish he had spent more time explaining what holotropic breathwork was (what he worked with in his practice after giving up using LSD). The book also made me think about OOBE's and NDE's differently than the 10 or so other books I've read on the subject and it was affirming to read about the effects of the drugs and how they could create OOBE 's but which didn't consequently discount them as being spiritual journeys but expressed that drugs were simply another way to achieve an altered state of consciousness. The materialist world would have us believe it's all a fantasy of the brain but he convinces the reader otherwise, coming from a different viewpoint than the usual OOBE traveler. He also recounts some spectacular stories of synchronicity, which I personally found intriguing. All in all a good read coming from a rather unusual perspective.

Review for When the Impossible Happens

very well written; it also brings up my personal experiences of the 'impossible.' I did take several breathwork workshops and they were powerful! I am sorry I never had the occasion to have an LSD session.
