Background. The research subject is human psyche in its connection (unity) with the universe and pedagogical support of fostering of such (universal) traits in people, as openness, orientation to retention of the whole plenitude of the universe inside yourself and individuality.
Materials and methods. Understanding of the stated problem lies in the teaching about a human as a universal spirituality, originating in the Eastern mythology, philosophy of the Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Modern Age, the Russian religious philosophy. In the context of the mentioned views, a human is considered as a spirituality, initially immanent in all its possible (life) actualizations (Platon, Aristotle, Augustinus etc.).
Results. The article considers a human as a being that does not belong (in the absolute sense) to him/herself (and to society), as a being that actively participates in what is going on in the universe. A human as a spirituality ontologically features such (universal) traits, as openness, limitlessness, participation in what is going on in all and sundry. General openness, limitlessness and participation of a human in what is going on in the universe encourage occurrence and development of such traits in human psyche, as open-mindedness to all and sundry and responsiveness to everything, orientation to retention of the whole plenitude of the universe inside yourself and individuality (awareness of oneself). Maintenance and development of such traits in human psyche are associated with solving problems of human fostering (intellectual, moral, other). The article determines directions of pedagogical support of the mentioned traits of human psyche: pedagogy of nonintervention and a semantic approach. In the framework of both approaches the pedagogical attention is focused on semantics of individual’s consciousness. In human consciousness a teacher actualizes such semantics that lead an individual to the world of universal objective reality (semantics of bounds between all and sundry, responsibility for everything etc.). The described views are topical for pedagogy in modern secondary schools.
Conclusions. The summarized proposition of the article deals with expedience of addressing to universal (transpersonal) human psyche traits in school educational environment.
