Summary Read First Chapter image missing

The freshest and most respected thinkers in transpersonal psychology explore the myriad pathways to knowledge.

Offering the perspectives of some of the most respected thinkers in transpersonal psychology and consciousness studies, this book explores the farther reaches of knowing, both ourselves and the world, described here as transpersonal, post-conventional, or spiritual. The contributors' work is presented from their own authentic knowing, whether through personal narrative or through conceptualization informed by such knowing. They explore what "knowledge" can consist of as it stretches beyond conventional objective observation and analysis.

"The contributors further thinking in the areas of philosophy, psychology, transpersonal and humanistic studies, and of science itself, in presenting useful expansions and extensions of ways in which humans can acquire, work with, and demonstrate fuller forms of knowledge and understanding of themselves, others, and the world at large." -- William G. Braud, coeditor of Transpersonal Research Methods in the Social Sciences: Honoring Human Experience

"This book is done with integrity and heart. The need for pathways to deep inquiry and transpersonal knowing are vital to the field of transpersonal psychology as it matures and as more people are opening up to a greater more integrated consciousness." -- Ray Greenleaf, John F. Kennedy University

"Provides an excellent dosage of philosophical and theoretical reflection with first-hand accounts. The broad range of topics covered and the articulation of subtle, often ineffable experience, are most admirable." -- Daniel Deslauriers, California Institute of Integral Studies
