The Healing Journey: Pioneering Approaches to Psychedelic Therapy (2nd Edition)

By Claudio Naranjo

This book takes an in-depth look at the spiritual and psychotherapeutic potential of the amphetamine derivatives MDA and MMDA, harmaline (the active compound in ayahuasca), and ibogaine. To distinguish them from classical psychedelics such as LSD and psilocybin, Naranjo coins the terms “emotion-enhancers” and “fantasy-enhancers” for these substances.

“[Grof’s work] is the most important contribution to personality theory in several decades.” Abraham Maslow, founder of Humanistic Psychology

Claudio Naranjo

Dr. Claudio Naranjo (1932 – 2019) was a Chilean-born psychotherapist, medical doctor, author, educator, Buddhist practitioner, and pioneer in the areas of psychology, psychedelic therapies, and human development. Naranjo was an early practitioner of the  “Enneagram of Personality” which he enriched with his deep understanding of psychology and more esoteric aspects of work with the psyche. He ultimately created SAT (Seekers After Truth) integrating Gestalt therapy, the Enneagram, contemplative practices, music and art therapy, and other practices designed to provide deep personal insights.

In his later years, he expanded his work to explore education and its role in promoting patriarchal worldviews that contribute to our deepening global crisis. Naranjo is the author of several books including The Healing Journey: Pioneering Approaches to Psychedelic Therapy (2nd edition), (MAPS 2013), The Revolution We Expected: Cultivating a New Politics of Consciousness (Synergetic Press, 2020), and Dionysian Buddhism: Guided Interpersonal Meditations in the Three Yanas (Synergetic Press, 2022).

[Grof’s work] is the most important contribution to personality theory in several decades.

Abraham Maslow, founder of Humanistic Psychology

If I am the father of LSD, Stan Grof is the godfather. Nobody has contributed as much as Stan for the de-velopment of my problem child.

Dr. Albert Hofmann, research chemist ad author of LSD: My Problem Child

I know of no work that so well incorporates the findings of Freud, Jung and Rank, adding fresh insights, which the methods of those psycho-therapists could never have achieved. I do not doubt that many others working in this field would find Dr. Grof’s discoveries a basis for a whole new strategy of research.
