Our minds are finite, and yet even in these circumstances of finitude we are surrounded by possibilities that are infinite, and the purpose of human life is to grasp as much as we can out of the infinitude.
― Alfred North Whitehead

Drops & Buds, an open access electronic journal dedicated to furthering the work of transpersonal psychiatrist Stanislav Grof, MD, is currently accepting submissions. Drops & Buds will consider complementary work generally related to transpersonal topics in modern psychology, particularly its philosophical and historical foundations.

Drops & Buds

This journal welcomes academic as well as lay contributions and endeavors, including relevant accounts of personal development that speak to issues of general interest. It invites submissions from humanities, arts, and science that are not excessively technical or polarizing, and that stand firmly in the point of view of the world as one organism, rather than being divided into humans or nature, social or economic classes, ideologies, or religions.

This journal and its associated website, Breathwork.com, welcome discussion of related modalities and programs that honor Grof’s work and legacy.
