Introduction: Influenced by post-colonial thinking around difference and diversity, I herepresent a uniquely transpersonal exploration of difference, and an important definition of spiritual othering. Objectives: This research aimed to provide evidence of that being made the other by a majority holds unforeseen unconscious consequences, both psychologically and spiritually. Methodology: This phenomenological study used semi-structured inter- views to explore 25 participants‟ unconscious experiences as the other, using meditation, visualizations and drawing. Results: Presented as a phenomenological case study, one of the major themes from my research is that spiritual othering leads to the death of the un- conscious other within us. Conclusion: This research sees spiritual othering as the self- destruction of that which makes us unique, and of that which would aid us in achieving ourultimate spiritual potential.
