Transpersonal psychology stands at the interface of psychology and spirituality, exploring optimal mental health, self-realization, and development toward full human maturity. Spiritual understanding and practices can help psychology give a richer and deeper accounting of the full range of human potential. Psychology can provide spiritual disciplines with a better understanding and more effective practices for dealing with obscurations and wounds in the human psyche and for supporting the development and maturation of consciousness.
