Integral Counseling Psychology

This program is experiential, culturally sensitive, and centered on the inner work necessary for becoming a healer.

Drawing upon the major spiritual traditions of the East and West, recent cultural and social sciences research, and the innovations made by contemporary psychoanalytic, humanistic, systemic and transpersonal psychologies, we view psychological healing and growth within the larger context of spiritual unfolding.

Integral education is not "neck up". It is demanding on every level: body, heart, mind, spirit. We create a learning community that is both profoundly challenging and deeply supportive.
