The following article by Stanislav Grof was published as the preface of Christopher Bache’s book entitled Dark Night, Early Dawn: Steps To A Deep Ecology of the Mind. In this work, Grof reviews Bache’s unique contribution to transpersonal psychology: a reconceptualization of the individual’s personal transformational work as one’s contribution to a more harmonious future for the entire planet. Grof also commends Bache for collating researches which has the potential to transform our understanding of consciousness, our identity, and the nature of reality.

With this understanding comes a re-appreciation of the unique role we, humans, play in this process of transformation.
