Transpersonal Psychotherapy

Boorstein, Seymour (Ed.)

 Psychoanalyst Boorstein presents this as "a beginning attempt to build a literature to breach the current wall between the sacred and the psychotherapeutic." "Transpersonal" refers to that which goes beyond individuality, to that which is bigger than we are. Such an orientation is hospitable to psi, which by definition is transpersonal as well as transpatial and transtemporal. Parapsychology is represented here by Jan Ehrenwald's psi phenomena and the existential shift. Montague Ullman's "Dream workshops and healing" touches on psi in dreams. Near-death and deathbed experiences are mentioned in Charles Garfield's "The dying patient's concern with life after death." A chapter on Jungian psychotherapy by E.B.Crittenden deals with synchronicity and healing. Beyond these specific mentions of psi, however, this book is relevant to parapsychology for the new orientation it provides. The emphasis here is on transpersonal dimensions of healing, but all the authors wrestle with the problem of formulating a new paradigm, a problem of central concern to parapsychologists as well.
