Hillary Anderson, Ph.D., is a well-known lecturer, scholar, therapist, and seminar leader who utilizes a rich synthesis of East-West mythology and psycho-spiritual symbolism to promote healing and a deep cross cultural understanding of the human condition. Her unique perspective is rooted in a deep appreciation of our common cultural values and ideals expressed in the language of myth, symbol, and ritual.

She recognizes the gods and goddesses of the great world myths as archetypal energy patterns, and has developed a profound process through which we can identify the major mythic themes that play in our daily lives.

Dr. Anderson has served as a founding board member and faculty of California Institute of Integral Studies, in San Francisco. She founded the Universal Way Foundation to support studies, programs, and festivals that promote self-sovereignty and cross-cultural respect for all spiritual pathways. Her books include Sri Aurobindo's Yoga of Transformation, Be Your Own Psychic Reader with Tarot Imagery, and New Thoughts on Tarot: Transcripts from the First International Newcastle Tarot Symposium.

Dr. Anderson lives in Los Angeles where she maintains a private practice, facilitates seasonal festivals and seminars and lectures extensively throughout the country.
