Section IX: Reimagining and Reinventing Bodily-Spiritual Health

Track 5: Mystical Disciplines, Ritual, and Worship
(Chris Chapple and Steve Odin)

 

Transpersonal psychology data are often amassed by those who engage in other forms of disciplined meditation, though meditation itself has other more important goals. An overview of the achievements of various forms of meditation is presented with respective contributions to ecological civilization. This is distinct from prayer, study, and praise characterizing worship in theistic traditions.
