Journey of Consciousness

2016-12-logo_title_web-film

Journey of Consciousness is a feature length documentary that presents Stan Grof’s remarkable legacy in a narrative format. The storyline follows Stan’s process of discovery from his teenage years to the current day, with the added layer of the filmmaker’s exploration of his techniques. This approach allows audiences to see how Stan developed his theories, and provides them with an example of how to integrate the resulting insights into their lives.

Archival footage, interviews and re-enactments bring Stan’s story and insights to life, while the web version of the film – with its branch-out segments – serves as a portal through which viewers can access resources to help them begin their own journey of transformation.

By supporting this project, the Grof Foundation will be helping fund the filming of key moments from Stan’s life, such as his childhood growing up during the Nazi occupation of Prague, his teenage years and early professional life under a communist regime, and his life-altering first psychedelic experience. Pivotal moments that inspired his theories will be brought to life, illustrating his evolution from a classically trained, materialist doctor, into a pioneer and cartographer of the human psyche.

Animations and dance sequences will transform the 4 Basic Perinatal Matrices, COEX systems, and other discoveries into tangible experiences, intended to spark viewers’ personal memories. Filmmaker, Susan Hess Logeais has already started combining interview footage of Stan with images and videos from his archives. Periodically, she and Stan review her work to make sure it aligns with his actual experiences. In this way, Journey of Consciousness will be an accurate representation of Stan’s work.

In gratitude for their support, Susan will provide the Grof foundation with edited sequences representing Stan’s story so that the community will have access to them independently of the film. The goal is to offer the community experiential examples of Stan’s legacy, for both their own enjoyment and to support their work.
