ICP Professor, Michael Kahn

Professor Michael Kahn's Memorial

Our beloved colleague Michael Kahn died on Wednesday, July 9th at about 5 pm. Michael was a truly beautiful person and an inspiration to so many of us. It is hard to think of his passing but I am so happy that the ICP celebration last spring brought him back to CIIS to hear tributes from colleagues and alumni.

Michael Kahn retired from CIIS at the end of 2007. He first joined CIIS in 1988 as Director of the Integral Counseling Center; in 1993 he also became a member of the faculty. Michael was a gifted teacher, committed to helping students discover themselves as they learned to become therapists. His publications include Between Therapist and Client (Holt, 1997 revised), The Tao of Conversation (New Harbinger Publishing, 1996) and Basic Freud (Basic Books, 2002).

In his last days, Michael was able to say goodbye to the people closest to him. He told his wife Virginia that he wanted a simple memorial service in the Quaker tradition to be held at their house.  
Michael’s wife, Virginia, finalized the details today for Michael’s memorial service. Because many people wanted to attend, a larger venue was needed, and it took some time to arrange. More>>
