Money, power, territory and status, epochs of violence, greed, and social dislocation have rocked humanity throughout history. Today, through the population explosion, industrial revolution and production, these overzealous elements of human nature threaten not only our survival, but the survival of all life on this planet. Are we imposing our unchecked wills at the expense of our relationship to the planet?

With so much at stake, Dr. Stanislov Grof, world renowned psychotherapist, creator of Holotropic Breathwork, and author of many books, explains how our consciousness informs taking action to address such profound social implications at this crucial time, and to evolve beyond the pitfalls inherent in our unchecked patterns.

Such questions have been repeatedly discovered and explored, yet today we face the most significant nexus of potential futures in humanity's history. How do we respond?

Great discussion. There is definitely a dark/shadow force that lies within each of us, but I would maintain that some 'humans' are completely lacking in heart, or connection to natural forces. Wish you had allowed Stanislav to complete his last statement.
