Abstract

Objective: Self-transcendence, the final level of Maslow鈥焥 hierarchy of needs is neither well stu-died nor well understood from an empirical perspective. Methodology: This study followed a quantitative correlational methodology with forty-nine participants (37 females and 12 males). They completed the questionnaires: Self-Transcendence Scale (STS), Mystical Experience Scale (M-Scale), Dissociative Experience Scale (DES), and Transliminality Scale Revised (TS-R). Results: A positive relationship was found between STS and the M-Scale; no relationship was found between STS and TS-R or between STS and DES; significant negative correlation was found be-tween DES and TS-R. Conclusion: The notion of mystical experience as being marked by pathol-ogy, specifically, dissociation, is laid to rest in this study.

Resumen

Objetivo: La autotrascendencia es el nivel m谩s alto de la jerarqu铆a de necesidades de Maslow, pero ha sido bien estudiado ni entendido desde una perspectiva emp铆rica. Adem谩s, los componentes de la autotrascendencia y en qu茅 grado prevalece cada uno, tambi茅n se desconocen. Metodolog铆a: Este estudio sigui贸 una metodolog铆a cuantitativa de tipo correlacional, con una muestra de 49 par-ticipantes (37 mujeres y 12 hombres). Todos cumplimentaron los cuestionarios: Self-Transcendence Scale (STS), Mystical Experience Scale (M-Scale), Dissociative Experience Scale (DES), y Transliminality Scale Revised (TS-R). Resultados: se encontr贸 una relaci贸n positiva en-tre STS y M-Scale; pero no se encontr贸 relaci贸n entre STS y TS-R o entre STS y DES. Sin embargo se encontr贸 una correlaci贸n negativa significativa entre DES y TS-R. Conclusi贸n: La noci贸n de experiencia m铆stica como marcada por la patolog铆a, y espec铆ficamente la disociaci贸n, es descar-tada en este estudio.
