The Secret Chief Revealed: Conversations With Leo Zeff, Pioneer in the Underground Psychedelic Therapy Movement (Revised Edition)

By Myron J. Stolaroff, M.S.

The Secret Chief Revealed reveals for the first time, the identity of pioneering psychedelic therapist Leo Zeff, which was kept secret in the original The Secret Chief. The book contains the same text as the original with 32 pages of added material including epilogues written by Leo’s children and patients, and a new introduction by Myron Stolaroff.

“In the illegality of his time it was unthinkable to publish the excellent results of his therapy. It is therefore praiseworthy that today, years after his death, a friend has undertaken the task of publishing the details of the therapeutic methodology of this intrepid Ph.D. psychologist.” ― Albert Hofmann, Ph.D., inventor of LSD

Endorsements

“Jacob (Leo) painfully weighed the pros and cons and made the decision to challenge the law, continue his work with psychedelics, and assume personal responsibility for his activity. He has already passed the judgment of his “family,” the friends and clients whose lives he has profoundly changed. They remember him with great love and gratitude. It remains to be seen how he will be judged by history…” ― Stanislav Grof, M.D., author of LSD Psychotherapy.
