What is Transpersonal Psychotherapy?

Experiencing the sacred

in daily, ordinary life

and in the conscious

which most people live.

Hello,

I find that the transpersonal experience, is profound and difficult to explain. That to  make it accessible and understandable for everyone is difficult. Below is a brief description of Transpersonal Psychotherapy. More than trying to capture it’s exact essence, I hope to plant seeds of understanding and provide openings for further questions. If you would like to connect with me further on Transpersonal Psychotherapy, please contact me here

Blessings to you,

Transpersonal Psychotherapy

Transpersonal Psychotherapy can be understood as the melding of wisdom from the spiritual traditions with the exploration of modern psychology. Exploring fundamental questions, such as “who am I?” through therapeutic, religious, spiritual and cultural motivations. The transpersonal psychotherapeutic answer to the question of “who am I” is to look deep within. Developing the personality (personal) while honoring the urge to go beyond (trans) what we know of the self. In moving beyond the confines of this known sense of who we are, our consciousness expands and opens to ranges of experiences. Conscious is seen to be a vast, multidimensional existence where new aspects of being are manifested. Transpersonal psychotherapy enlarges the vision of modern psychotherapy to include a wider lens of the co-participatory nature of personal psychological history and one’s view of physical daily reality.

Beyond the persona.

The etymology of transpersonal is trans and persona.
Trans: above and beyond ordinary consciousness.
Persona: the way one behaves, talks, etc., the image or personality that a person presents to other.

Through relationship with others

Transpersonal psychotherapy is an approach to understanding the way our
minds operate through relationship with others and self. Coming to an awareness of the bigger and deeper space that exists between all things and us. Transpersonal is seen as a panoramic psychotherapy with additional awareness in aspects perinatal and transpersonal domains. Perinatal – related to birth, and transpersonal – comprising ancestral, racial, collective, karmic experiences, myth and archetypal dynamics.
