The Role of Consciousness Transformation in Compassion and Altruism

by Tina Amorok, PsyD, Marilyn Schlitz, PhD, and Cassandra Vieten, PhD

Vieten, C; Amorok, T; Schlitz, M (2006). Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science, 41:4, 917-933.

It is clear that human consciousness can be transformed through spiritual experiences and practices. Little is known, however, about what the predictors, mediators, and outcomes are of such transformations in consciousness. In-depth structured interviews were conducted with forty-seven teachers and scholars from religious and spiritual traditions and modern transformative movements to identify factors common to the transformative process across traditions.
