Transpersonal Psychology Section

Welcome to the Transpersonal Psychology Section 

Transpersonal Psychology deals with spiritual nature of human beings. All the major spiritual and mystical traditions of the world include teachings about the nature of mind and promote practices and lifestyles intended to bring about psychological transformation. Human beings frequently have transpersonalexperiences in which our awareness expands and intensifies. Sometimes these occur spontaneously, in the midst of every activities and situations. Outside the context of religion or spirituality. Transpersonal psychology investigates spiritual practices and experiences, researching their value and their relationship to the models and concepts of psychology. So transpersonal psychology can be seen as an integration of spirituality and psychology. 



The section has links with other transpersonal organisations, both nationally and internationally, and encourages lively debate and discussion about transpersonal issues. As a member, you will receive a quarterly newsletter, highlighting recent transpersonal research and publications, and also our annual journal, The Transpersonal Psychology Review. The Section holds an annual residential conference involving experiential workshops and academic papers, and offers day events during the course of the year. Section members are given reduced rates to all events.
