     The talk presented here was given by Dr. Grob, and one of the participants in his current cancer anxiety study, during July 2005 at a salon in the L.A. area. Now in their seventh year, Kathleen's monthly evening of intellectual excitement has become a meeting place for some of the most influential and fascinating minds on the West Coast.

Dr. Grob recently co-edited, with Roger Walsh, "Higher Wisdom: Eminent Elders Explore the Continuing Impact of Psychedelics", SUNY Press (State University of New York press), 2005. [Read a review by Lorenzo]
