peak experience is a term coined by psychologist Abraham Maslow to describe a state of consciousness characterized by euphoria, wonder, awe, and a sense of transcendence. peak experiences are often associated with Self-actualization, the highest level of human potential in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. peak experiences can occur during various activities, such as art, nature, sex, creative work, music, or introspection, and they can have a lasting impact on one’s personal growth and world-view. According to Maslow, peak experiences reveal the true nature of reality, which is perceived as good, beautiful, whole, alive, unique, perfect, and simple.
