Summary or Abstract : The intention of this dissertation was to explore how purportedly awakened psychotherapists differed from unawakened psychotherapists. The study examined 15 psychotherapists: 5 awakened transpersonal psychotherapists, 5 unawakened transpersonal psychotherapists, and 5 unawakened nontranspersonal psychologists. The awakened group was selected as having significant spiritual realization by an expert rater, Adyashanti, a spiritual teacher believed to be enlightened. Participants were interviewed on their understanding of psychotherapy and took a psychospiritual assessment battery that included: Nondual Embodiment Thematic Inventory (NETI), Washington University Sentence Completion Test (WUSCT), and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI). The WUSCT was rescored by two experts using an alternative scoring system. A Vipassana teacher also took the assessment battery for comparative purposes. Additionally, the participants conducted a videotaped therapy session with a volunteer client while a Random Number Generator took measurements. Following the session the client completed a quantitative questionnaire about his own reactions to the therapy session. The purportedly awakened group means were the highest of the three groups on all of the assessments. The transpersonal and nontranspersonal groups scored similarly to each other, but the nontranspersonal group had lower scores on the STAI and the transpersonal group had higher scores on the expert ratings of the WUSCT. The hypothesis was that seven extraordinary personal qualities would emerge from a thematic analysis of the interviews with higher frequency in the purportedly awake group than in either the transpersonal or nontranspersonal groups. This was found to be true with the following six themes: mental clarity, vibration evocation, nonduality, spacious presence, heartful/mindful contact, and deep empathy. The qualities that distinguished the purportedly awake group from the other two groups appeared to be useful to the therapeutic process. In particular, spiritual realization appears to decrease therapists' defensiveness and countertransference and increase openness, empathic attunement, and client-therapist connection..
