Drops & Buds is a multimedia, open access e-journal dedicated to furthering the work and legacy of
transpersonal psychiatrist Stanislav Grof, MD. It concerns modern psychology generally, and process philosophy
as characterized by Alfred North Whitehead, including considering historical contributions
to our current understanding of human experience.

Welcoming academic, personal, and other contributions, we aim to deepen understanding of exceptional experience,
including how to most readily support its creative expression in practical ways. Inspired by Dr. Grof’s synthesis of
ancient wisdom, humanities, philosophy, and psychology, we invite consideration of exceptional experience from
multiple disciplines that speak to the issues of our time from a holistic perspective.

Made as we are from
the dust of stars..
And the shadows of dreams
Forged in the fire of ecstasy..
Quenched In the ice of despair
From our life’s breath flashes forth spirit.
