The Science of Spiritual Narcissism

Spiritual Narcisism

Self-enhancement through spiritual practices can fool us into thinking we are evolving and growing, when in fact all we are growing is our ego. The “I'm enlightened and you're not” syndrome:

  • "I am aware of things that others are not aware of. "
  • "I am more in touch with my senses than most others."
  • etc....

We may end up using our spiritual beliefs & practices to avoid genuine contact with our psychological unfinished business.
