An update from the Stanislav & Christina Grof Foundation:
'Many people have dreamed for years of bringing Stan Grof’s ideas and stories to life … using film, video, and animation.
The idea was to capture Stan’s stories of psychedelic experience, his radical theories about consciousness, and his anecdotes about the birth of transpersonal psychology -- preserving these, and even illustrating them, for future generations.
Filmmaker Susan Hess Logeais has been doing preparatory work for two years to create a documentary, Journey of Consciousness, about Stan’s work.
But Journey of Consciousness is much more than a documentary.
This project will also generate short, high quality videos of Stan speaking directly about his ideas and experiences. Creatively animated and illustrated, these will be the perfect resources to publicize his ideas in many media for years to come.
To give you an immediate sense of what’s possible, here is a link to a rough cut version of Stan describing his first psychedelic experience.
At 85, Stan is still active and vital. As many members of the original transpersonal and psychedelic communities are no longer with us, now is the time to move forward with this project to benefit from Stan's personal involvement.
Remember that Journey of Consciousness is much more than just a film honoring Stan.
Journey of Consciousness will make archival footage available and also generate new, quality videos that will help people get life-changing information, support, and inspiration.
We hope that you will join us in taking this huge step to bring Stan’s work to a much wider world, and to see his unique insights reach the greater public -- in this dynamic, creative way -- at long last.
