BACK COVER #"Consciousness" is on eof the most frequently discussed -- and misunderstood -- terms in popular use today. What do we mean when we sat that, in dreaming or under hypnosis, one alters his or her "state of consciousness"? This book presents a theory based on the latest scientific research in this important new field. In addition to dreams and hypnosis, the author covers meditation, drug states, emotional states, and other altered states of consciousness.
BLURBS #"One of the most important studies of this generation. The layman will find this profoundly creative work easy to read, immensely instructive and relvant to daily life. The professional will find it the key to restoring that psyche lost to psychology since James."
-- Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of Crack in the Cosmic Egg
"A beautiful piece of work on the theory of Altered States of Consciousness that will become a classic in the field."
-- Stanislav Grof, M.D., author of Realms of the Human Unconsciouness, The Adventure of Self-Discovery, and The Stormy Search for Self
