The Transpersonal Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society notes that Transpersonal Psychology addresses the spiritual nature of humankind. It is a branch of psychology because unlike religion and theology, its interest is driven by the study of mind and behavior. As such: Transpersonal Psychology seeks to integrate non-scientific spiritual insights with observations and models associated with the rigorous methodological approach of psychological science.

With contributions from more than fifty scholars, this is the most inclusive resource yet published on transpersonal psychology, which advocates a rounded approach to human well-being, integrating ancient beliefs and modern knowledge. Proponents view the field as encompassing Jungian principles, psychotherapeutic techniques such as core process therapy, and the meditative practices found in Hinduism and Buddhism.
Alongside the core commentary on transpersonal theories, including holotropic states; science, with chapters on neurobiology and psychometrics; and relevance to feminism or concepts of social justice, the volume includes sections describing transpersonal experiences, accounts of differing approaches to healing, wellness, and personal development, and material addressing the emerging field of transpersonal studies. Chapters on shamanism and psychedelic therapies evoke the multifarious interests of the transpersonal psychology community. The result is a richly flavored distillation of the underlying principles and active ingredients in the field.
