<< Buddhist Psychology: A Transcultural Bridge to Innovation and Reproduction

The Use of Video in Facilitating 'Transpersonal' Experience

Donald E. Rothenberg (European School Network, Vienna Bilingual Schooling, Austria)



The purpose of this exploration is to investigate the use of video as a tool in eliciting 'transpersonal' experiences and its potential as a tool for personal development in integral psychotherapy including Buddhsit Psychology and Cognitive-Behavior Therapy. For purposes of this investigation 'transpersonal' experience is defined as entailing three critical and related cognitive phenomena. The first one is a detachedness of perspective connected to the ability to look to oneself from the point of view of an other, as if outside, an objective observer of the self through 'witnessing consciousness'. The second is: commitment to a wholistic perspective. The third phenomenon is an alteration in the perception of time and space. Its transcultural practice will be illustrated with a display or demonstration.
