The Way of the Psychonaut 

Documentary project featuring psychedelic psychotherapy pioneer, Stanislav Grof 

Have you ever wondered if what you have been taught about the world, life, and spirit is just plain wrong?


Were you ever convinced that there is much more to reality than meets the eye? Have you explored the truth and discovered something much deeper about yourself and the universe?


That’s exactly what happened to filmmaker Susan Hess Logeais. For much of her life she felt like she didn’t belong on Earth — until she learned how to connect with the mystical aspects of consciousness.


All she really needed was an experienced guide to help her interpret what she was learning on her own. Susan found the perfect one in psychiatrist Stanislav Grof, a pioneer in psychedelic psychotherapy, who discovered the healing power of non-ordinary states of consciousness through 60 years of research and personal experience.


Susan seized upon the opportunity to immerse herself in Stan’s extraordinary breadth of knowledge, so that she might bring those insights to the greater public.


THE WAY OF THE PSYCHONAUT is a feature-length documentary that explores Stan Grof’s story, how he touched Susan's life with his knowledge, and how this knowledge can profoundly change the lives of many more — but only if they are allowed to access it.



This project is more than just a film, it's a portal to a rich world of resources and information. Through the web version of the documentary, audiences will be able to access branch-out segments to learn more about Stan’s work, as well as other visionaries who complemented his research.

Help us bring Stan's story to life with your photos, videos, and art.
