Transpersonal psychology integrates spiritual and transcendent aspects of human experience with the framework of modern psychology.
The Transpersonal is defined as "experiences in which the sense of identity or self extends beyond (trans) the individual or personal to encompass wider aspects of humankind, life, psyche, and cosmos. It has been defined as "development beyond conventional, personal, or individual levels."
Are you feeling called into a private counseling practice? This degree helps to prepare you for working with clients.
Issues considered in transpersonal psychology include:
- Spiritual self-development
- Self beyond the ego
- Peak experiences
- Mystical experiences
- Systemic trance
- Spiritual crisis
- Spiritual evolution
- Religious conversion
- Altered states of consciousness
- Spiritual practices

NOTE: Gateway does not prepare students to sit for state licensing exams.
The Transpersonal Education degree is designed for entrepreneurs who vision opening consciousness learning centers, develop training and certificate programs, become teachers, coaches, and leaders, or have a private counseling practice.
Do you turn personal transcendent experiences into music, art, poetry, literature, courses, or programs for others? Is the focus of your life to create experiences for others in which the sense of self extends into mystical realms?
This course of study provides a balance of psychology, mystical arts, esoteric science and conscious capitalism. You'll learn to bridge societal views of physical reality and multidimensional inner realities to transform, heal, and expand conscious culture. Curriculum is designed to foster new thought leaders.
With guidance from your mentor, you will convert your vision to a business plan, then implement product creation, set up your counseling/ healing practice, design digital strategies to get clients, and open the doors to your private practice or consciousness center.
Energy psychology is based on the broad theory that mental health and physical health conditions are related to altered flow and function in the body's electrical energy and energy fields. The idea that the body's electrical field can be manipulated to produce healing and spiritual development is a root of many ancient and modern approaches to medicine.
The underlying principle is that traumatic memories and fears create a state of hyperarousal in some individuals. This is described as increased psychological and physiological activities of tension, pain, feelings of dread, jumpiness, sleeplessness, and anxiety.
Energy psychologists provide simple methods to retrain the brain, helping clients overcome physical and emotional reactions that affect health and well-being more quickly than talk therapies alone.
A few modalities include:
- Acupressure techniques like EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping) and TAT Tapas Acupressure Technique
- Botanical medicine
- Flower and gem essences
- Healing Touch
- Intuitive practices
- Mind-Body therapies
- Spiritual healing & prayer
- Nonlocal therapies
