In all our work we aim to foster wellbeing & health, cultural self-expression & inclusivity, ecological sustainability, and compassionate service to the world. Whilst being rooted in academic excellence, all our programmes in consciousness, spirituality and transpersonal psychology encourage personal and professional growth through multiple ways of knowing, embracing creative, spiritual and somatic practices alongside intellectual study.
Students from across all our programmes have the opportunity to participate in a dynamic international learning community, in which mind, body and spirit are equally honoured.
Our educational programmes include postgraduate (Certificate, Diploma, Masters and PhD) as well as Open Learning routes for those who want to study for personal enrichment. We facilitate many of our educational programmes online, providing 1-to-1 virtual tuition and guidance.
Our Learning Offer
We offer postgraduate programmes in the areas of consciousness studies, spirituality and transpersonal psychology. Our PhD, Masters (MSc), Diploma (PG Dip) and Certificate (PG Cert) programmes provide intellectually-challenging studies, focusing on such issues as the nature of consciousness, the dynamics between psyche and soma, the psychology of self and higher states of being, creativity and transformation, and the psychological basis of spiritual and mystical practices. In addition to a rigorous curriculum, the programmes are distinctive in valuing experiential approaches to learning and encouraging students to incorporate insights from their studies into their daily lives.
For those seeking to study for personal enrichment and self-development, we offer access to a range of specialised courses which sit within our postgraduate programmes. As an Open Learner you get the opportunity explore the same topics that we cover in our postgraduate programmes and you enjoy the same level of access to our learning facilities and tutors. The only difference is that you do not need to write assignments for academic qualification!
