What is Transpersonal Psychology?

Transpersonal psychology is a subfield of psychology that studies the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience. It seeks to understand the connection between individuals, their environment and the broader universe; and how experiences such as spiritual awakenings, mystical experiences, and near-death experiences can impact personal growth and well-being. 

Transpersonal psychology often incorporates elements from indigenous wisdom, as well as spiritual, religious eco/Earth-based traditions, and considers the role of consciousness and spirituality in overall human development.
