Transpersonal: The New Educational Psychology.
Roberts, Thomas Bradford
This article lists some of the major ideas and topics of interest in transpersonal psychology and illustrates them with examples of transpersonal education applied to schools. Transpersonal psychology includes psychological aspects of such things as new world views, altered states of consciousness, an impulse toward higher states, self-realization and self-transcendence, spiritual growth, parapsychology, new forms of energy, and other cultures and their psychologies. Relaxation and concentration techniques, exploration of altered states of consciousness, meditation, and dreams are described as used in classroom situations. Suggestions for a human potential unit are offered and ways to use the topics of parapsychology and research in transpersonal psychology are considered. Finally, use of transpersonal educational psychology is seen as a new realm for teacher education. This paper is in draft form; a revised version in mini-book form will be available in the spring from Phi Delta Kappa. (Author/KSM)
