Suporting innovative exploration of media, conciousness, and psychedelic medicine.
CIIS' Center for Psychedelic Therapy and Research educates the public and professionals about the research and clinical use of psychedelic medicine. The Center offers a Certificate in Psychedelic Assisted Therapies and Research to educate licensed psychotherapy and medical professionals on the use of psychedelic medicine in FDA-approved clinical studies. The Center also offers lectures and programs to the public on psychedelic medicine and therapies several times a year.
Since its origins in the mid-20th century CIIS has been committed to the exploration of the nature and potentials of human consciousness. This commitment is embraced and embodied by its many programs, ranging from Asian philosophy to integral psychology and counseling, and on through women’s spirituality, ecology, creative arts, and many more.
The goals of the Center for Consciousness Studies are to elevate CIIS to international prominence in the field of consciousness studies, and to support and facilitate consciousness studies both inside and beyond the institute. The Center also acts as a clearinghouse for faculty members and students from CIIS and outside who are interested in the field of consciousness studies.
Drawing upon the programs within the School of Consciousness & Transformation, the Center for Transformative Media provides revolutionary courses in media skills, theory, strategy, and design. From archetypal storytelling, to documentary shorts for social justice, to the power of new media to create and document performance, CTM connects students with leaders in the fields of film, media, art, and activism.
While primarily focused on offering courses that empower students' visions and work, the future aim of CTM is to evolve to include an on-site media facility and production studio.
