The Transpersonal Giants
C. G. Jung and Stanislav Grof:
Toward an Integration of Approaches
This is now available on video recording for $115 USD.
A Four-Week Webinar with Boris Matthews and Renn Butler
This groundbreaking course will present the seminal work of two of the most important explorers in Western civilization. Jung and Grof independently discovered the healing value of contacting the numinous and transcendent layers of the psyche. Both recognize the liberating effect of focused introspection, and both have an optimistic view of the psyche: acknowledging its capacity to heal itself and move toward wholeness and integration.
Jung is considered the first transpersonal psychologist in the modern era, and Grof is the foremost living theoretician of this important fourth wave in psychology - after psychoanalysis, behaviorism, and humanism.
Please join us for this exciting webinar as we dialogue on areas of interface between the Jungian and Grofian approaches to psychotherapy and how they can enrich and complement each other.
