Searching for Afrocentric spirituality within the transpersonal

Dwight Turner, Jane Callaghan, Alasdair Gordon-Finlayson

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticle


Aim of this paper is to show, via the lens of a culturally specific dream, how the transpersonal could benefit from broadening its approach to spirituality to include the wisdom of African spiritual beliefs. Considering some of the reasons for its lack of prominence, together with an exploration of some of the richness held within African spirituality, this paper suggests that a more Cosmopolitan approach to the Transpersonal is needed to avoid the creation of a spiritual Other.
