Since its founding 50 years ago by Dr. Haridas Chaudhuri, CIIS has been at the forefront of cutting edge models and approaches to counseling psychology, philosophy, spirituality, self-care and preventative health, and the whole person education of mind, body, and spirit. CIIS has been, and continues to be, an early adopter of ideas that become mainstream, such as everyday mindfulness and integrative health. As the causes that CIIS champions gain in popularity, CIIS continues to be at the forefront of innovation in new and different ways to change our world for the better.
