Code Name Price Description  
01402 Maslow, Abraham
Psychology Of Religious Experience

02502 Watts, Alan
East Religion and Western Therapy
$18.95 Our culture, says Watts, lacks a consciousness-altering religion, and therefore makes psychotherapy religion-like, with all the doctrine, dogma and sacraments of a religion. - 1971 Esalen - Two Audiotapes
02508 Watts, Alan, Stan Grof and Julian Silverman
The Science Of Madness
$18.95 Watts talks of how differences from the norm are regarded as pathology, irrespective of whether it is a madman or a saint who is involved. Grof`s LSD studies led to his discovery that both "mad" and "normal" subjects eventually entered into experiences with religios qualities. Silverman discusses how some psychotic patients improve, not in spite of their psychosis, but through the psychosis. - 1968 Esalen - Two Audiotapes
02805 Bateson, Gregory
Schizophrenia And The Double Bind

Confronting Hallucinations
$18.95 Van Dusen found that hallucinations seem to be entities that have their own consciousness and an existence independent from that of the patientt they haunt.

07001 Laing, R. D.
Politics Of Experience
$11.95 Laing tells us that the schizophrenic is imprisoned by members of a normal society because he does not conform to standard patterns of communication and behavior. He has lost his ability to play the deadening social game of lie and counter-lie. - 1967 Esalen - One Audiotape
07002 Laing, R. D.
Illusion Of Achievement
$11.95 Laing relates schizophrenia - seen as the voyage backward to discover the uncontaminated self - to his Zen-like philosophy. - 1967 Esalen - One Audiotape
07003 Laing, R. D.
Blowout Center
$18.95 The blowout center began when Laing and a few others banded together to enter an auto-initiatory journey to the self. Such a journey involves a radical dissolution of the ego and is a shattering experience in an attempt to rediscover the ancient mysteries of self-healing through encountering death and rebirth. Laing feels that the inner journey is a natural process and should not be suppressed sedatives and electric shock treatments. - 1967 Esalen - Two Audiotapes
09101 Frankl, Viktor
Existential Vacuum
$11.95 Frankl describes the feeling of emptiness and loss of faith that plagues us in this age of affluence and success, and suggests how psychiatry can deal with the resulting vacuum in human existence. - 1969 Esalen - One Audiotape
10105 Rudhyar, Dana
Fate and Free Will
$11.95 Reconciling individual development and mystical self-realization with cosmic patterns and the intense desire of all cultures to maintain social order has been a focal point of Rudyhar's study. He contrasts the great problems of different cultures - liberation in India, freedom of choice in Europe, and individual rights in America - and maintains that in a very real sense, they are all false problems, because they are meaningless unless defined by their opposites. The role of cosmic patterns, then, is not to determine events, but to provide a context for interpretation. - 1970S - One Audiotape
10701 Szasz, Thomas
Psychiatric Medicine: Cure Or Control
$11.95 Szasz sees the function of some psychiatrists as social control, determining who is sick and who is "normal," with no objective standards of mental health or illness. He explores psychiatric techniques defined as "treatment" as disquised forms of extra-legal punishment and confinement for those of whom society disapproves. - 1973 Esalen - One Audiotape
34203 Naranjo, Claudio
