In the Fall of 2000 I taught a three-unit psychology course at the University of Arizona entitled Psyc 357: The Psychology of Spirituality & Religion. I had previously taught a course for psychological professionals entitled Transpersonal Psychotherapy, thus I presented the materials from that 36-hour course.
Seventy-two undergraduate students were brave enough to be subjected to coursework on transpersonal psychology, the perennial philosophy, conventional psychotherapy, and mysticism. Eighty-nine percent thought the course valuable, eleven percent thought it heretical. A sampling of the course materials are provided below.
