Transpersonal Psychology Curriculum
 
 

Transpersonal Psychology is a multidisciplinary field concerned with the integration of Eastern and Western psychological and spiritual approaches. This field of study emerged from earlier tendencies within contemporary psychotherapy (Humanistic, Jungian, etc.). It recognizes the potential for experiencing a broad range of states of consciousness where one's identity extends beyond the usual limits of ego and personality. Students who select this field of inquiry can choose to teach and guide people in numerous modalities, become life coaches, conduct research, as well as realize profound self development.

Graduates of the program embark on both traditional and nontraditional careers. By being responsive to the spiritual as well as the physical and mental dimensions they are in a unique position to address many of our contemporary problems. This enables them to become more evolved human beings, parents, spouses, artists, therapists, athletes, educators, healers, and workshop leaders.
