The late-20th-century resurgence in brain and mind studies throws fresh light on this collection of studies, essays and reports. Free of behaviourism's shackles, the critical investigations into trance, dream, meditative, hypnotic, drug-induced and other non-ordinary states of consciousness are fascinating and sometimes unforgettable, such as Milton Erickson's extraordinary account of investigating Aldous Huxley's self-taught "Deep Reflection" technique.

This book is dedicated to my wife, Judy, without whose love and assistance it could never have been written.
First words
Beneath man's thin veneer of consciousness lies a relatively uncharted realm of mental activity, the nature and function of which has neither been systematically explored nor adequately conceptualized.
