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

Claudio Naranjo was a Chilean-born psychotherapist, medical doctor, author, educator, serious Buddhist practitioner, and pioneer in the areas of psychology, psychedelic therapies, and human development. His integrative approaches to a variety of fields elevated his work and created global reach and influence. After graduating medical school and exploring the intersection of education, medical science, and anthropology in Chile, he came to the US and ultimately apprenticed under Fritz Perls, the founder of Gestalt Therapy. Naranjo was ultimately named one of three successors by Perls in that approach. Naranjo expanded his work to explore psychedelic therapies and worked with such notables as Leo Zeff and Richard Evans Schultes. He was an early practitioner of 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, Enneagram, contemplative practices, music and art therapy, and other practices designed to provide deep personal insights. In his last years he further expanded his work to explore education and its role in promoting patriarchal worldviews that contribute to our depending global
crisis. Dr. Naranjo passed away in July 2019 after a long illness. His last book published in Spanish, The Revolution We Expected, will appear in English this Fall from Synergetic Press.

[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.
