One of the foremost spokesmen for the Third Force movement in psychology, Abraham H. Maslow here articulates one of his prominent theses: the "religious" experience is a rightful subject for scientific investigation and speculation and, conversely, the "scientific community" will see its work enhanced by acknowledging and studying the species-wide need for spiritual expression which, in so many forms, is at the heart of "peak-experiences" reached by healthy, fully functioning people.

BOOK DESCRIPTION Take It from The Top: What To Do With a Peak Experience By Edward M. O'Keefe, Ph.D. This book examines Peak Experiences (PEs), those "mountain-top moments" when we are suddenly taken out of ourselves and feel our oneness with all of creation. These magical moments, the author convincingly points out, are increasing in number and in quality as the human race prepares for a significant evolutionary step forward. Some 75 well-known and little-known persons share with us their fascinating, often life changing, always uplifting, experiences - outbreaks of spirit - that testify to the amazing capabilities and possibilities of the human mind and heart. American psychologist Abraham Maslow called this capacity "the farther reaches of human nature." Persons relating their profound peak experiences, mostly in their own words, include Eckhart Tolle, C.S. Lewis, Anwar Sadat, Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, Albert Einstein, scientist Elmer Green (considered the father of clinical biofeedback), actors Alan Arkin and Julie Andrews, basketball star Bill Russell, and composers Brahms and Bernstein. Whatever the field of the 'peaker'- science, art, religion, education, sports, etc. - these profound moments of insight, knowledge and joy motivate the individual, and all humankind, to exceed former limits, to push on into previously unknown territory. Thus, PEs are the prime engines of human evolution. The author, after a lifetime of study of PEs, examines these extraordinary occurrences, where PEs come from, their purpose, and the most common events and activities that trigger PEs, such as music, sports, spirituality and nature. In addition, after pointing out some of the resistant forces that tend to inhibit such experiences, this book presents easy and practical methods to increase the number of these powerful and ecstatic spiritual happenings - for oneself and for the evolution of the human race.

Blending existential and occult thought, a highly acclaimed philosopher explains how we can find profound meaning and joy by inducing states of extreme awareness and emotion Throughout history there have been references and examples in literature, art and philosophy of an increased awareness of life while under the influence of extreme emotions. These have become known as Peak Experiences. Soon after Colin Wilson became aware of this phenomenon in the 1960s, he wondered about its history and how its power could be harnessed, and began a forty-year investigation. In Super Consciousness, we see how such luminaries as Yeats, Blake, Sartre, Nietzsche, and Robert Graves were affected by Peak Experiences, and how it has long been noted that we are least insightful when we are at our lowest ebb. By looking in detail through the different areas where this phenomenon has occurred—and by offering anecdotes and examples of how many people in history (as well as himself) were affected—Wilson reveals a pattern of insight with emotions. He ends the book with an instructional section on achieving power consciousness for yourself.
