Feelings of oneness with other people, nature, and the universe. Encounters with extraterrestrials, deities, and demons. Out-of-body experiences and past-life memories. Science casts a skeptical eye.

When the Impossible Happens presents Dr. Grof 's mesmerizing firsthand account of over 50 years of inquiry into waters uncharted by classical psychology, one that will leave readers questioning the very fabric of our existence. From his first LSD session that gave him a glimpse of cosmic consciousness to his latest work with Holotropic Breathwork, When the Impossible Happens will amaze readers with vivid explorations of topics such as: Temptations of a Non-Local Universe, experiments in astral projection, Praying Mantis in Manhattan, and other tales of synchronicity, Trailing Clouds of Glory, remembering birth and prenatal life, Dying and Beyond, survival of consciousness after death. Here is an incredible opportunity to journey beyond ordinary consciousness guaranteed to shake the foundations of what we assume to be reality and sure to offer a new vision of our human potential, as we contemplate When the Impossible Happens.
