Dear Karen, I am very familiar with Transpersonal psychology, spiritual emergency and the works of Grof & Grof, and I refer to their thesis in my book. However, my daughter’s situation is far more complex than that. My book is a theological book, and looks at the experience of psychosis thru that lens. My daughter’s conversion experience had nothing to do with her illness. The conversion took place two years before her illness began. Of course her conversion was the beginning of her journey with God, and undoubtedly, the way she experienced the illness had a lot to do with her relationship with God.
