Somatic & Spiritual Psychology Curriculum


Sri Yantra *
 

Somatic and Spiritual Psychology is the new science of the human condition. This holistic approach to inquiry and to healing breaks with the mechanistic paradigms of twentieth century psychology (cognitive behaviorism and reductive versions of psychoanalysis), and recognizes the inherent divinity of every human being — his or her capacity to live an awakened life in Love. 

Somatic and Spiritual Psychology draws both from the most inspiring contemporary practices of therapy — which are holistic, dynamic and energetic — and from ancient traditions of spiritual wisdom. The central tenet of this discipline is to understand the lived experience of the individual as that of embodied spirituality. 

This degree program offers maximal flexibility and openness to the diversity of creative approaches to learning, and the program is ideally suited for individuals who have developed interests in the following five areas:

  • Bodymind — Somatic — Psychotherapy

  • Yoga and Associated Somatic‑Spiritual Practices

  • Clinical / Educational Human Sexuality

  • Tantric, Taoist, Sufi and Related Traditions of Spirituality

  • Shamanic Traditions of Healing and Cosmology

 

 
Masters Program:  45 Credits
(25 Credits in Required Courses, 20 Credits in Electives)
 
Doctorate Program:  90 Credits
(54 Credits in Required Courses, 36 Credits in Electives)
 
Combined Masters/Doctorate Program:  120 Credits
(54 Credits in Required Courses, 66 Credits in Electives) 
 
 
 


               Course credits may be earned in the following ways:

  1.  Taking courses at other universities or colleges

  2.  Students may request and submit for IUPS approval (through their mentors),
       permission to earn credits for workshops, and other programs not mentioned above.

  3.  Many students earn course credits by having their mentor assign books to read on the
       course topic, and writing papers that demonstrate their understanding of the assigned
       material. Credits can also be obtained by attending conferences, workshops, and retreats
       as well as assigned projects. A key criteria for earning credits in this manner is for the
       student to demonstrate how learning th
is subject matter impacts their life personally and
       professionally. Integration of course material is of paramount importance at IUPS.

  4.  Students also have the opportunity to design their own electives, truly giving students
       the opportunity to customize their education. A sample syllabus is provided to assist
       students in meeting university standards. The student submits the proposed course
       syllabus to the mentor and the university for approval.
