Ego Transcendence



Ego transcendence is a psychological concept describing the state of having gone beyond concern with the self and into a kind of altered state of consciousness where one can perceive reality objectively, without interference from one’s own ego. It is commonly reported during religious or mystic experiences, some psychedelic journeys, and as the results of some intense meditation practices. Some belief traditions see an experience of ego transcendence as an important step on the stage toward spiritual enlightenment.
