A radical inner transformation and rise to a new level of consciousness might be the only real hope we have in the current global crisis brought on by the dominance of the Western mechanistic paradigm.

–Stan Grof

Drops & Buds is an open access, online journal dedicated to furthering the work of transpersonal psychiatrist Stanislav Grof, MD. It will concern modern psychology generally and speculative philosophy as characterized by Alfred North Whitehead.

This journal welcomes academic as well as personal contributions.

Multimedia submissions are invited from the humanities, arts, and sciences that constructively speak to the issues of our time from a holistic perspective. The intent is to deepen our understanding of exceptional experience, including how to most readily support its creative expression. Submissions may include research, philosophy, first-person accounts, art, music, poetry…and other offerings that our collective imagination conjures.

This journal will be published on the Vernal Equinox in March and Autumnal Equinox in September.
