Spirituality and Psychology (#S010)
True psychology is incomplete without an understanding of the spiritual yearnings of human beings. Frances Vaughan, Ph.D., is a transpersonal psychotherapist and president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology. She is author of Awakening Intuition and The Inward Arc. Dr. Vaughan stresses that all spiritual traditions ultimately offer a means toward transcendence of the limited self.
Awakening Intuition (#S231)
We can train our own intuitive faculty by learning to quiet the mind and listen to internal signals. Frances Vaughan, Ph.D., says intuition involves a direct knowing without mediation by human senses or logic. She points to several types of intuition--spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical.
