Abstract Research in the field of transpersonal psychology has made an instrumental contribution to academic and clinical attitudes toward altered states of consciousness (ASC); psychologists now more widely recognize that ASC can involve aspects of extraordinary human potential encompassing the 'all-self', rather than presuming that these experiences are indicative of psychopathological factors. Extraordinary human experiences thus tend to be explored from a phenomenological framework, as this approach highlights the potential of expanding the personal spectrum of consciousness. Rhea White's Exceptional Human Experience (EHE) classification is a well-known workable framework for integrating praxis and theory in exceptional experience research. This paper proposes a model for cultivating EHEs, in line with White's classification. Additional research avenues for developing the therapeutic cultivation and integration of EHEs are also considered.
