These volumes bring transpersonal psychology into a more contemporary era and expand its application into new approaches for healing and growth. It is a pleasure to see new thinking that extends the seminal insights of transpersonal psychology into such areas as social action, diversity, and inequality, to connect the inner with the outer world, and to locate personal transformation in a context of social transformation, indeed as the most powerful form of social action. This is a much needed contribution to the field.

This collection literally has it all from scholarly reviews of the intellectual and cultural origins of transpersonal psychology through relevant research and moving personal experiences to contemporary cutting edge applications. It clearly demonstrates that transpersonal is alive and well as it passes from middle age to elderhood. Timely, yet timeless.
