Excerpt(s): Some weeks
ago I received in the mail from the psychiatrist
directing research at the Maryland Psychiatric Research Center
in Baltimore, Dr. Stanislav Grof, the manuscript
of an impressive work interpreting the results of his practice
during the past fourteen years (first in Czechoslovakia and now
in this country) of psycholytic therapy; that is to say, the treatment
of nervous disorders both neurotic and psychotic, with the aid
of judiciously measured doses of LSD. And I have found so much
of my thinking about mythic forms freshly illuminated by the findings
here reported, that I am going to try in these last pages to render
a suggestion of the types and depths of consciousness that Dr.
Grof has fathomed in his searching of our inward sea. The title
of the work, when it appears, will be Agony
and Ecstasy in Psychiatric Treatment (Palo Alto: Science and
Behavior Books, 1972). (page 258)
