Here Grof presents a useful model of the psyche—a model extended by his thirty years of studying non-ordinary states of consciousness. It is useful for understanding such phenomena as shamanism, mysticism, psychedelic states, spontaneous visionary experiences, and psychotic episodes. The model is also useful in explaining the dynamics of experiential psychotherapies and a variety of sociopolitical manifestations such as war and revolution. This book might have been entitled Beyond Drugs. The second part describes the principles and process of the non-pharmacological technique developed by the author and his wife, Christina, for self-exploration and for psychotherapy. Grof explores in detail the components of this technique. He describes its method, its effective mechanisms, as well as its goals and potential. Its practice is simple, since it utilizes the natural healing capacity of the psyche.

Jay and Tay are about to begin an adventure that will take them on a journey of self-discovery. Jay is getting ready to attend his first martial arts class. He thinks he is going to learn how to fight like on television. He quickly realizes that being a martial artist has more to do with self-control, respect for others, and self discipline. He learns to follow directions, focus on the task at hand, and turn a bully into a friend. And so will you.

Because It's There: To Climb Mount Everest is the first book of a series of four.

It took away the mystery of the road, the unexpected, and set a standard of high expectations by merely promoting the popular. The romance of the road was then gone."

Platypus Dreaming is a real-life animal adventure story about one of the world’s most mysterious animals.

In this book, we get to know a platypus called Lucky, her family, and all the wondrous creatures that share her life on the river. The author draws from her own life experiences as an Australian naturalist and wildlife rescuer to tell the story of one very resilient creature. It is a fictionalized account of the life and adventures of a female platypus that is full of fascinating facts and is told in a very unique voice. The author combines elements of adventure, romance, self-discovery, humour, and family values, along with fascinating biological facts about a platypus. It provides solid learning based on a beautiful story. Photographs of the real-life Lucky illustrate this poignant account of the survival of this unique animal against all odds. Platypus Dreaming takes the reader on an Australian adventure without leaving home. It is a real-life story in the style of Watership Down and Ring of Bright Water, where the animals act as they would in nature. If you or your children love true-to-life animal adventure stories, then read Platypus Dreaming. You won’t be disappointed. “I love the wildlife-rescuer style of telling a story. Lucky’s story has everything. There are real facts woven into an adventure that you have to keep reading to make sure that Lucky and her male friend can endure. There are also real photos of the animals that are the heroes of this story. Or is the hero the author herself?” (Verified Amazon review by Otakara Kliettke, May 21, 2016). “An amazing, wonderful book! If all you read are the introduction and chapter one, you’ll marvel at the Australian aboriginal stories and the natural history of the platypus. Then begins the story of one particular platypus named Lucky, whose rescue from near death by the author inspired the tale. Photographs of the real-life Lucky illustrate this poignant account of the survival of this animal against all odds” (Lynn W.).
