Transpersonal Psychology

Transpersonal psychology refers to a psychological framework that addresses human development beyond conventional, personal, or individual levels. It refers to higher human functioning or consciousness in what are called the latter stages of human development. This thinking follows the work of Ken Wilber, William James, Carl Jung, Roberto Assagioli, Erik Erikson, and Abraham Maslow (Scotton, B. p 3-4, in the Textbook of Transpersonal Psychiatry and Psychology). It is a school of thought that has been present, apparently, for several thousand years.
Researchers considering this form of psychology note its roots in a variety of mystical traditions from every broad religious structure, and refer to it as a formerly esoteric (inner, hidden) tradition that worked to explain and encourage the development of higher human intuition and a relationship with the transcendent forces in the universe. My interests in this field have surrounded the development of a contemporary theory and methods of transpersonal practice that are suitable to these times and this particular culture.

Below are a selection of my efforts at this work. Note also the section of this site labeled The Psychology of Spirituality and Religion.
