Stanislav Grof!! *fist pump* What he writes about death and dying (and birth, particularly) always resonates.

You know of him as well?


I love his work and his writing.... His wife (Christina) has a lot of great insight as well...

I do! I'm a big psychology nerd. I'll have to look into his wife's stuff!
Ken Wilber is quite good, too.

It seems that it's rather difficult to find transpersonal/depth psychologists in many cities, which is a shame, as I think they could be especially helpful in aiding those who are in grief, have come close to death and/or are terminally ill.

I agree, Zulabelle. Such skilled people do exist, but appear to be hard to find! Not many psychologists are so switched on.
