Notes

Connection experiences are the cure for consumerism, violence, intolerance, even unhappiness.

Stanislav Grof notes that the use of Connection Supplements or Connection Practices reduce aggression, increase compassion and tolerance. He also notes a reduction of the "insatiable drive to pursue linear goals," reduction in the belief that "more is better," and emergence of "spirituality of a universal and nondenominational nature characterized by the awareness of unity underlying all of creation an a deep connection to other people, other species, and the entire cosmos." (Lazslo, Groff, Russell, 1999: 4).

Satisfaction of the seventh essential need - connection. "Only the experience of one's divinity in a non-ordinary state of consciousness can ever fulfill our deepest needs." (Lazslo, Groff, Russell, 1999: 67)

Grof also notes that "Full satisfaction comes ultimately from the experience of...our own divinity, not the pursuit of material goals of any scope or kind (Ibid: 8).

Grof “When people get involved in self-exploration using non-ordinary states of consciousness, it is not necessary to teach them ecology or ethics. When they have transpersonal experiences, their systems of values changes automatically and they develop deep ecological awareness, tolerance, and compassion… and [the sense of a much larger identity].” (Lazslo, Groff, Russell, 1999: 130)

Spontaneous Alignment Grof "I believe that there is a system of core values which are transpersonal, which transcend those of the existing cultures. It is an ethical system that emerges spontaneously out of profound mystical experiences. It includes values upon which people from different cultures who have had these experiences would agree. I have seen this phenomenon repeatedly in our work." (Lazslo, Groff, Russell, 1999: 122).
