“Stanislav Grof is likely to be the main living psychologist. Grof is a pioneer in every sense of the word and one of the most global theorists in the field of psychology in current times. His modern corroboration of the perennial philosophy is an extraordinary achievement” Ken Wilber

The Transpersonal Psychology deals with the study of the most elevated human potential and it also recognizes and expands the comprehension of the states of consciousness of unity, spiritual and transcendence. Therefore, the Transpersonal Psychology broadens the horizons of the understanding of the human consciousness, traditionally covered by psychology through incorporating the spiritual dimension. In the 60s, it started like a school of thought for psychology, among its founders are Stanislav Grof, Abraham Maslow and Gregory Bateson.

In brief, we can say that the Transpersonal Psychology consists of the psychological study of the transpersonal experiences and its correlates. Understanding these experiences as those in which the sense of identity – the self – expands beyond the person (trans-personal). The experiences can cover aspects of humanity, life, psychism and the cosmos, that one might have not experienced before. Moreover, we may note that transpersonal experiences are often accompanied by important psychological changes, both lasting and beneficial, which are reflected in everyday life. These experiences can provide a sense of meaning and purpose in our lives, and they can also help us to overcome crisis, traumas or personal and existential difficulties, as well as to awaken in us a compassionate view of humanity and the world. They also prove the existence of a wide range of human possibilities and suggest that some emotions, motivations, cognitive capacities and states of consciousness can be encouraged and refined to higher levels.

The main focus of Transpersonal Psychology is the study of the consciousness and the expanded states of consciousness. The expanded states (also called non-ordinary states or altered states of consciousness) are phenomena, which are difficult to express or to exactly define them with words, as they involve experiences that go beyond the verbal categories and frequently beyond the daily experiences. These non-ordinary states of consciousness (which Grof calls Holotropic) are comparable to those that occur in spiritual or meditation practices, fasting, shamanic trances and many rituals of different cultures in the world. These experiences have an immense healing, transformative and evolutionary potential. The consciousness expands and we open ourselves to understanding the nature of existence. Frequently, it involves experiences which transcend the boundaries of our individual identity and/or space and time, allowing an approach to the ultimate nature of consciousness, intangible and incomprehensible. An aspect of the Absolut, which is not personal nor mental, but is rather transpersonal and transmental. They are states and processes in which the ordinary sense of identity (self) transcends, resulting in a deeper or wider sense of who we are. These experiences are often accompanied by a greater connection with others, nature, the cosmos and the spiritual dimension.


“Transpersonal Psychology does something else than simply shedding new light on the problem of world crisis. It also describes a broad spectrum of techniques, by which we can accelerate the evolution of consciousness in ourselves and in others. They range from ancient spiritual practices of the mystical traditions of East and West, to the Jungian psychology and the clinical or laboratory methods of the experimental psychiatry. Such processes allow us to face the shadow aspects of the personality and integrate them, transcending the identification with the body and the ego, and connecting with the transpersonal areas of one’s psyche: the Being and the collective unconsciousness.”
Stan Grof

Transpersonal Psychology combines the principles and methods of the modern Psychology with insights of the contemplative traditions of the world, including the disciplines of consciousness of both East and West.

Transpersonal Psychology also offers a new way of understanding the psychopathology. The concept of healing includes the shift of consciousness and the ‘spiritual awakening’. With this perspective, psychology may expand to a richer and integral explanation of the entire range of the human experiences. Transpersonal experiences often lead to important psychological changes, lasting and beneficial.

Framed in Transpersonal Psychology, the Holotropic Breathwork is one of the most powerful and effective techniques of deep self-exploration and experiential Psychotherapy.
