Transpersonal psychology has been defined as "the field of psychology which integrates psychological concepts, theories, and methods with the subject matter and practices of the spiritual disciplines" (Davis). Peer counseling (also called "Co-Counseling") has been described as "the use of active listening and problem-solving skills to counsel people who are our peers, peers in age, status, and knowledge" (D'Andrea & Salovey, cited in NINR).
Is a transpersonal peer counseling possible?
In my preliminary investigations, the closest thing I find to it is Eugene T. Gendlin's Focusing technique, in that it can be practiced in partnerships and is sometimes considered to have spiritual applications. But it wouldn't surprise me to learn that there are communities of Thelemites who already have experience with this concept.
