Quote:Adam Crabtree, RP, is a trainer of psychotherapists and has a private therapy practice in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, He is author of From Mesmer to Freud: Magnetic Sleep and the Roots of Psychological Healing, Multiple Man: Explorations in Possession and Multiple Personality, Trance Zero: Breaking the Spell of Conformity, Evolutionary Love and the Ravages of Greed, and The Land of Hypnogogia.

He is also coauthor of Irreducible Mind: Toward a Psychology for the 21st Century, and he is coeditor of Beyond Physicalism: Toward Reconciliation of Science and Spirituality. Here he explains that he is using the term hypnogogia to describe explorations of one's psychic depths including, but not limited to, states associated with sleep and dreaming. He shares a number of his own hypnogogic journeys – starting at the age of five. He discusses the sense of dread that sometimes accompanies these encounters with the unknown within. He also suggests that, while each individual is absolutely unique, there is a universal quality, independent of cultural conditioning, to hypnogogic terrain.
'Historically, we may regard materialism as a system of dogma set up to combat orthodox dogma...Accordingly we find that, as ancient orthodoxies disintegrate, materialism more and more gives way to scepticism.'
