Stanislav Grof Returns to His Child­hood Pas­sion with Lillibit’s Dream

Stanislav Grof dis­cusses his child­hood pas­sion of illus­trat­ing per­son­i­fied insects and how Lillibit’s Dream is a poignant metaphor for death and rebirth.

Because if you study what is hap­pen­ing with the cater­pil­lar, you notice there is a par­al­lel. It eats, it grows, it molts a few times, and then it cre­ates a chrysalis. Inside the chrysalis, the cater­pil­lar com­pletely dis­solves until there is noth­ing left of its old life. So this is a real death/rebirth expe­ri­ence that has some sim­i­lar­ity with the process of psy­chos­pir­i­tual death and rebirth that peo­ple expe­ri­ence in cer­tain non-ordinary state of consciousness. They have a sense of total anni­hi­la­tion and feel that their old life has ended and some­thing rad­i­cally new may emerge. And, para­dox­i­cally, in this process the expe­ri­ence of becom­ing noth­ing makes it pos­si­ble to become every­thing, iden­tify with every­thing in the uni­verse. In our book we took the license to let Lil­li­bit have the same experience.” Stanislav Grof
