Grof Art



By Kylea Taylor

published by Hanford Mead

Kylea Taylor was a senior Trainer with GTT for almost a decade in the 1990s. In 1995 she published The Ethics of Caring: Honoring the Web of Life in Our Professional Healing Relationships. Twenty-two years later she has re-organized, re-written, changed the subtitle provided many new quotes and references, and added 80+ pages.

The Ethics of Caring presents a model that first suggests and supports self-compassion, then gently guides self-reflection about unconscious countertransference that often occurs in the main areas of human life.

The Ethics of Caring is a unique ethics text designed to guide the self-compassionate self-reflection of both students and professionals (therapists, clergy, hospice workers, bodyworkers, educators, medical professionals, mentors, and other caregivers) toward understanding human motivations and countertransference, finding professional right relationship, and making good choices with clients. Highly recommended for Holotropic Breathwork facilitators and sitters.

Grof Art


By Tav Sparks

346 pages, $26.00
published by Muswell Hill Press

Explores the healing power of non-ordinary states of consciousness and the nature of the inner healing principle in Holotropic Breathwork.

In a work full of wisdom and humanity, Tav Sparks explores the interface of consciousness, personal growth, numinous experiences, and the evolution of the collective psyche. Drawing on his thirty-plus years of experience with Holotropic Breathwork and his interest in the perennial philosophy,

Sparks shows us how true fulfilment for any individual can be found by turning inward, through searching the core of our own deepest selves, using a powerful breathwork practice. Sparks positions this method of self-exploration as part of an emerging “holotropic paradigm” with revolutionary implications for humanity in the twenty-first century.

Love, Death and Forgiveness in Hawaii
By Christina Grof (1941-2014)

376 pages, trade paper, 2014
$12.50 (all profits go to Christina Grof's estate.)

Christina Grof left us recently, and it was far too soon. But we do have this memoir, completed and published right before she died.

The Eggshell Landing takes us to the warm breezes and flower lined lanais of Hawaii, where Christina was raised by her mother and stepfather. There was much joy in her childhood, but also dark secrets and enduring pain. Now her abusive stepfather is dying of melanoma. Christina's experiences with her dying stepfather will surprise you and perhaps even change your attitude toward forgiveness.

"Christina Grof offers us a beautifully crafted and moving memoir of transformation of family at the end of a life, of unconsciousness and abuse, understanding and redemption.."
- Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart

Byron Metcalf - Dashmesh Khalsa - Steve Roach ~ $16

The essential ingredients of ancient and contemporary shamanic trance states are fully activated in this highly potent new release. Byron carved out a collection of incredible trance grooves for nearly a year, eventually bringing in the prana-infused didgeridoo of Dashmesh Khalsa on every track. Steve joined on in early January 2010 and poured his heart and soul-drenched soundworlds into the six pieces, covering a full range of ecstatic dreamtime flow: rhythm, breath and expansion.The end result is a full-blown dreamtime alchemy of all the elements. The living, breathing percussion, didgeridoo and soundworlds are unified in a single purpose: to open to the door out of the ordinary world – initiating the listener into an empowered journey of infinite possibilities for spiritual rebirth, illumination, and transcendence.
