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.

Eons ago, God created legions of angels----perfect, beautiful beings who never knew sickness, sorrow, or death. Eternal beings whose only emotion they had ever known was love. Love for each other and love for God, their creator. The angels lived with God in paradise, in an everlasting heaven filled with a contentment of unconditional love that can only be imagined. Not one wanted anything more than to spend eternity just as it was. But God had plans for them, each and every one. They were to be his counselors of heaven. They were to guide, comfort, and be caretakers for all of God's future creations. To spread his love and to give hope to the hopeless and peace to the distressed, even to be messengers for God, God knew they would need more than love to do his will. They would need to master all of the emotions. They would need to understand the depths of pain and suffering and the thrill of winning to the solace of losing. They would need to know the amazement of birth and the unbearable sorrow of death and to know not just love but hate and, most importantly, faith, compassion, and forgiveness. So much to teach them and so many, but God, with his infinite wisdom, had it all worked out. He created an amazing blue orb, an entire world full of countless creatures, beautiful landscapes, and everything that would be needed. A perfect training ground he called simply earth, a world where free will along with good and bad decisions would lead them all on endless adventures. Once in earth, their alter egos would be unknown to them. They would be born and live out entire lives until death, which would bring them back to heaven where they would awaken with all of the memories of their time on earth. They would repeat these trips for centuries until they had experienced all there was to experience. Then they would be ready to do God's will. This is a story of an angel who was very special to God, a beautiful, very gentle, and kind-spirited angel simply named Tab. Tab had been to earth so many times. She had lived countless lives out on earth, and she could remember every detail of every visit. She loved the adventure and all the drama. Almost as soon as she'd get back to heaven, she'd go back to earth again and again and again. Her enthusiasm did not go unnoticed. Soon she would be given a great task. She would be given a chance to help earth as no other angel ever had, and God was going to leave it all in her hands as to just what and how she did it---well, almost all in her hands.

Bob and Barbara, brother and sister boa constrictors, could not be any more different from each other... on the outside. However, if you look deeper and deeper inside you may find a very different story! Bob loved his food and always looked fitter and leaner than his sister. Barbara Boa was intimidated by this and a little scared to shed her old skin, not knowing what she would find within. Although she felt uncomfortable and just wanted to change the way she looked, until Barbara can accept the differences and allow the changes to happen, she will never know she is more magnificent than she had ever thought possible! This book helps children with their own self-esteem and confidence. This story is told as a metaphor to read aloud to children and enjoy together. The vibrant illustrations and use of language draws children in to be part of the adventure, gently guiding them alongside the characters to get the message on a more personal level for them, to make their own meanings and take control of their own life situation - in their own way.
