John J. Hartman

This is a study of three groups of meditators whose different degrees of experience permitted an investigation of stages of development toward "enlightenment." Thematic Apperception Tests and Rorschach protocols were administered to an inexperienced American group, a Western advanced group, and an Asian group of masters of Yoga. The authors assert that their findings imply that in the masters' protocols "intrapsychic structure has undergone a radical, enduring reorganization." There was no evidence of conflict in sexual or aggressive drives. They conclude that meditation is not a form of therapy but rather a means of personal "liberation."
