Review

In summary, this volume succeeds in accomplishing a lot. It clearly provides an update on the accomplishments of transpersonal psychology. It also raises issues of profound importance both for the discipline of transpersonal psychology and for the broader field. It will serve as a useful reference for a comprehensive overview of the entire discipline for years to come. Anyone who claims to be a scholar of the entire field of psychology must read it.   (PsycCRITIQUES, 23 June 2014)

This book is a great source of up to date information, and a great contribution to our understanding of this important area of work .  (ACPNL Magazine, 1 March 2014)

 

From the Inside Flap

With contributions from more than fifty scholars, this is the most inclusive resource yet published on transpersonal psychology, which advocates a rounded approach to human well–being, integrating ancient beliefs and modern knowledge. Proponents view the field as encompassing Jungian principles, psychotherapeutic techniques such as core process therapy, and the meditative practices found in Hinduism and Buddhism.

Alongside the core commentary on transpersonal theories, including holotropic states; science, with chapters on neurobiology and psychometrics; and relevance to feminism or concepts of social justice, the volume includes sections describing transpersonal experiences, accounts of differing approaches to healing, wellness, and personal development, and material addressing the emerging field of transpersonal studies. Chapters on shamanism and psychedelic therapies evoke the multifarious interests of the transpersonal psychology community. The result is a richly flavored distillation of the underlying principles and active ingredients in the field.
