Transpersonal Psychology in Mexico City

 Besides other types of therapy, I practice Integral/Transpersonal Psychotherapy, encompassing mind,  body,  and spirit, as they are inseparable parts of the whole human. The  mind affects the body, and the body affects the mind. If  all of these  connected parts are not in alignment and working together  in concert  for your wellbeing, you are likely to experience discomfort  or disease. 

What is Transpersonal Psychology?

Transpersonal  psychology is a sub-field or "school" of psychology that integrates the  spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience with the  framework of modern psychology.  It is also possible to define it as a  "spiritual psychology." 
 

The transpersonal is defined as, "experiences in which the sense of identity or self extends beyond and through (trans) the individual or personal to encompass wider aspects of humankind, life, psyche (soul in Greek), or cosmos."  It has also been defined as, "development beyond conventional, personal, or individual levels."
 

Issues considered in transpersonal psychology include spiritual  self-development, self beyond the ego, peak experiences, mystical  experiences, systemic trance, spiritual crises or spiritual emergencies,  spiritual evolution, religious conversion, altered states of  consciousness, spiritual practices, and other sublime and/or unusually  expanded experiences of living. The discipline attempts to describe and to  integrate religious/spiritual experiences within modern psychological theory and to  formulate new theory to encompass such experiences.
 

Transpersonal psychology has made a number of contributions to various  academic fields, such as the studies of human development, consciousness,  and spirituality. Transpersonal psychology has also made contributions  to the fields of psychotherapy and psychiatry (as well as many other fields from business to  architecture).

Below are some videos that explain much of the history and thinking  behind Transpersonal Psychology and include contributions from eminent  figures in the field, many of whom were my professors and friends at the, now  defunct, Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, California.

The Story of Transpersonal Psychology:

 
Transpersonal Psychology by Charles Tart, MD.

A robot-thing explains Transpersoanl Psychology:

A lecture about Transpersonal Psychology given by R.D. Laing (1927-1989) and Leo Matos, presented 10 February 1982 as a St. Görans Lecture in Stockholm, Sweden.

The short introduction by Dr. Matos, equating Transpersonal Psychology with Quantum Physics is brilliant.

Help Me to Help Others

 For the past 8 years I have worked as a volunteer psychologist/ psychotherapist at a low-cost community mental health clinic in Barrio Tepito (the worst area of Mexico).
The people in this area suffer greatly.  There is drug, alcohol, and inhalent addiction, physical and mental abuse (child, wife, husband, etc.), prostitution, violent crime, etc.  You name it and it's there. 
I am doing what little I can to help.  Little by little, person by person, couple by couple, child by child, family by family.  It is hard work and it takes its toll on me physically and mentally.
I work to make this country (Mexico) better, so that Mexicans can live a decent life in their own country.
Any money received through this is to help me to survive (to keep a roof over my head and a little food to sustain me).
NAMASTE!  God bless you!
