Transpersonal Psychology might loosely be called the psychology of spirituality and of those areas of the human mind which search for higher meanings in life, and which move beyond the limited boundaries of the ego to access an enhanced capacity for wisdom, creativity, unconditional love, and compassion.
Psychosynthesis is a psychology of self and social development that applies psychological methods to achieve greater presence, authenticity, and harmony among people, groups, and societies.
Existential Therapy, where the aim is to search for truth with an open mind and an attitude of wonder rather than to fit the client into pre-established frameworks of interpretation.
