mysticism in psychology is the study of the subjective experiences of individuals who claim to have direct contact with a transcendent reality, such as God, a higher self, or a cosmic consciousness. mystical experiences are often characterized by a sense of unity, ineffability, bliss, and transcendence of time and space. Psychologists have tried to understand the nature, causes, and effects of mysticism from various perspectives, such as psychoanalysis, humanistic psychology, transpersonal psychology, and cognitive neuroscience.
