New Partnerships: SAND, Humanity Rising, & Catalyst
Science & Non-Duality (SAND) invites you to Wisdom in Times of Crisis, a 7-day, interactive online journey with 30+ leading visionaries, spiritual teachers, therapists, and scientists who will share their wisdom and explore with us some of the challenges and opportunities this global crisis provides.
Humanity Rising represents a movement of people and organizations coming together to take counsel on how to leverage the crisis of the coronavirus pandemic into an opportunity for human renewal and increased resilience to future challenges.
Catalyst is a non-profit initiative between a number of individuals in Calgary Alberta and Syntac Institute and the Calgary Psychedelic Medicine Society. The desire is to see psychedelic medicines de-stigmatized and brought to intentional use in therapeutic ways. The conference is being launched to help with these efforts, and to see the stigma dropped, therapy increased, and people brought to higher states of awareness and healing through their use.

The Way of the Psychonaut Books (Vol. I & II)
About the book...
The Way of the Psychonaut is one of the most important books ever written about the human psyche and the spiritual quest. The new understandings were made possible thanks to Albert Hofmann’s discovery of LSD—the microscope and telescope of the human psyche—as well as other psychedelic substances. This comprehensive work is a tour de force through the worlds of psychology and psychotherapy, Holotropic Breathwork, maps of the psyche, birth, sex, and death, psychospiritual rebirth, the roots of trauma, spiritual emergency and transpersonal experiences, karma and reincarnation, higher creativity, great art, and archetypes.
Written in his late eighties, at the height of his magnificent career, The Way of the Psychonaut is possibly Grof’s greatest contribution. The commanding breadth and depth of his knowledge is astounding, the tone of his writing easy and accessible, and his narratives brightened with amusing anecdotes, intriguing personal accounts, and brilliant case studies. Grof reviews the history of depth psychotherapy, the important revisions that are needed to make it more effective, and why the inner quest is such an essential pursuit.
As one of the fathers of psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, its most experienced practitioner, and deeply deserving of a Nobel Prize in medicine, in these two volumes Grof has successfully unveiled a new and sweeping paradigm in self-exploration and healing. The vast and practical knowledge in this book is sure to be an invaluable and treasured resource for all serious seekers.

Starting May 7th: Weekly Streams and Live Q&As
VISIONARY DOCUMENTARY REIMAGINES STORYTELLING & RELEASE STRATEGY
Stanislav Grof’s Journey of Consciousness...
[New York, NY, April 16, 2020] - The new documentary The Way of the Psychonaut: Stanislav Grof’s Journey of Consciousness announces its reimagined storytelling process and pre-release community screenings. To adapt to the current global pandemic, the filmmakers developed weekly streaming events, which include: interviews with visionaries, sneak peek screenings of the documentary, and live Q&As with special guests. Starting Thursday May 7 at 3pm EST with a new event each week at the same time. Access the full program description and schedule here.
As the world faces many challenges in these unprecedented times, there’s an even greater need for hope and novel ways to move forward as a species. With this in mind, the filmmakers saw an opportunity to bring people together, explore the healing power of psychedelics, and gain a deeper understanding of human consciousness.
A psychedelic renaissance is well underway and scientific research has confirmed that these substances can dramatically help us face our current challenges. This resurgence wouldn’t be possible without Stan Grof, M.D., Ph.D. and his 60+ year pioneering career, which helped lay the foundation. Building from Stan’s work, the current research shows that psychedelic-assisted therapy can be life changing for individuals, and also help our society during these times of rapid change. As a global community we aim to thoughtfully discuss the themes from the film and also the larger issues facing our planet.
Join us for The Way of the Psychonaut special release and online community screenings. Let’s share some time together while learning more about Stan’s groundbreaking work and its
profound impact on the world.

“The deepest sources of the global crisis lie inside the human personality and reflect the level of consciousness evolution of our species.”
