TRANSPERSONAL PSYCHOLOGY
 
 
What is Transpersonal Psychology?
 
'Transpersonal psychotherapy, extending the domain of psychological inquiry to include spiritual experiences, suggests that on the inward arc of human development healing remains incomplete unless the human aspiration for transcendence is taken into account'.
- Vaughan: The Inward Arc (1995)
 
'My view of transpersonal psychotherapy is that it builds upon and embraces the techniques and goals of traditional psychotherapy by broadening the conceptual framework within which we understand human growth. Transpersonal psychology and psychotherapy address the broadest conceptualisation possible of human psychological growth. This includes (along with comfort and gratification in one’s relationship with self, family, work and society) recognition of the yearning for meaning, purpose and transcendence of self-consciousness that are part of our nature. Transpersonal psychology and psychotherapy presuppose the existence of a spiritual dimension in human beings'.
- Boorstein: Clinical Studies in Transpersonal Psychotherapy (1997)
 
Experiences in which the sense of identity or self extends beyond (trans) the individual or personal to encompass wider aspects of humankind, life, psyche or cosmos.
- Walsh & Vaughan (1993)
 
Transpersonal experiences can be defined as experiential expansion or extension of consciousness beyond the usual boundaries of the body-ego and beyond the limitations of time and space.
- Grof: The Adventure of Self-Discovery (1988)
