Exceptional Human Experience (EHE)

Exceptional Human Experience (EHE)

Umbrella term coined by Rhea A. White to cover the full range of anomalous human experiences. When a person has potentiated the sensed but hidden meaning of an experience, consciously realizing it, this realization usually transforms the identity, lifeview, lifestyle, and worldview of that person. It is at this point that it becomes an EHE because the anomalous experience or anomaly of experience has enabled the person to actualize more of his or her hidden human potential than would have been possible without the experience. The end result of most EHEs is a greater sense of connectedness, with previous unknown parts of self, with other people, with other species, and with the universe. White has identified 240 specific types of EHEs and groups them into seven broad classifications: death-related, desolation/nadir, encounter, healing, mystical, peak, psychical.
