The Grof Foundation is just a little more than seven months old, but we have been blessed by enormous enthusiasm for our efforts. Here’s a brief update about the work we’ve been doing.
In the months following our launch, we were met by a huge desire for communication and coordination among the many people and organizations—many of whom we hadn’t known about before—who are deeply inspired by the Grofs’ work.
Thus our priority has been to build a long-term, stable, and respected organization that can meet this need, as well as preserve Stan and Christina’s legacy and bring their work to more and more people.
Although we do not yet have an endowment, or even enough operating funds to meet such goals, we have still been able to make real progress on important initiatives. We’ve done this by leveraging small amounts of money with a lot of volunteer power and collaborative spirit. Specifically:

The Book of Revelations is a great mind exercise. We can figure it out of we understand the basic truths about life. But the truth takes the fun out of it and makes us face ourselves. Are you prepared to face yourself?
All there is is Energy, Thought, and Form. We are Spirit, Mind, and Body. The two basic functions of the mind are to create and destroy reality. However, we can also just observe reality or participate in it, as long as it exists.
The Space between our thoughts, The Silence, is God, where we meet God and together we create our reality by the quality of our thoughts.
Most people live in their feelings and forget that they are the Source of their feelings. Our thought habits are the source of our religious feelings as well as all of our other feelings. And we can catch feelings from other people and groups of people. It can be called emotional energy pollution, but we can also catch beautiful feelings from groups worshipping God and from music.
In the Book of Revelations the cube is the symbol for the mind, because which-ever way you turn a cube it is always the same. It is always right side up. The truth is a two-edged sword, or a sword that turns every way. The smallest things in the universe are thoughts, and thoughts have created the biggest things in the universe. Our small problems are created by the mind as well as our big problems.
Our breath connects us to all of the people, plants, and animals on this planet. And the energy that flows within the breath is the energy that we all share and depend upon.
Next Saturday 18 April some of us will be joining together in Holotropic Breathwork workshops on Global Holotropic Breathwork Day to journey once again into the place in us where outside and inside may merge and become one.
But whether you are in a workshop or not on the 18th, see if you can remember that day (if it is not already your daily practice) to notice the breath coming in, the breath going out, your connections inside and outside, and what important yearning in you is waiting for you to notice and honor.
