Mentioned in the article who has done related research for many years is one of my favorite transpersonal researchers, Stanislav Grof. His work pre-dated current research in utilizing psychoactive drugs for many purposes besides facing death including pre-natal regressions for soul recovery, ‘spiritual emergencies’ and pre-life regressions. I’ve read all his works to great advantage and seen him speak in New York several times along with his wife Christina Grof.
