Excerpt

"It has become evident that the Western model of psyche, with its narrow biographical orientation, is inadequate to account for a wide spectrum of phenomena occurring in psychedelic states. Under the catalyzing influence of these remarkable psychoactive drugs, experimental subjects have experienced not only autobiographical sequences, but also powerful confrontations with birth and death, and an entire gamut of phenomena that have been named transpersonal.

The rediscovery of these experiences and the recognition of their heuristic relevance has been one of the major incentives for the development of a new movement in psychology - the transpersonal orientation."
