Seems to be that she thinks he is arrogant and sexist. In reading his
books I have never found this to be true at all.
Course he does map the human psyche with peri-natal, archetypal, and
cosmic consciousness experiences as well as the usual psychodynamic
problems of everyday life, so he tends to be somewhat god-like in his
approach, but that's the interesting stuff. Again, I haven't seen any
hard core arrogance.
I'd invest the 13 bucks if I were you. If you want to marry off
science and religion, Grof is a good matchmaker.
Anyone else have an impression of Stanislav they want to share?
