*For this survey, “spiritually transformative experience” is defined as a discrete experience of an altered state of consciousness that after a period of integration brings about a profound transformation in the behavioral life expression and spiritual identity of the experiencer. Examples might include, but are not limited to, mystical experience, out-of-body experience, near-death experience, paranormal experience, and anomalous experience.

Thank You. My name is Marie Grace Brook, and I am conducting a research study for my doctoral program in transpersonal psychology to examine how people who experience powerful life changing spiritual experiences cope with the sudden change and integrate those changes into their lives. mariegracebrook00@gmail.com
