Institute of Transpersonal Psychology Foundation
“The privilege of a lifetime
is to become who
you truly are.”
“The visionary is one who brings his or her voice into the world and who refuses to edit, rehearse, perform, or hide. It is the visionary who knows that the power of creativity is aligned with authenticity.”
— Angeles Arrien
What is Transpersonal Psychology?
In this time of increasing complexity and global conflicts, we are facing serious challenges for the future of humanity and the natural world. Transpersonal Psychology addresses these challenges through a nontraditional approach that explores and develops the furthest reaches of our human potentials to help create a more sustainable worldview. The field of transpersonal psychology, now 50 years old, integrates the ideas and insights of western psychology with wisdom of eastern spiritual traditions. According to the Association for Transpersonal Psychology, the mission of the field is “to promote eco-spiritual human transformation through transpersonal inquiry and action.”
What is the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology Foundation (ITP Foundation)?
ITP Foundation is a charitable foundation established in 1975 as the first graduate school and research center to focus on transpersonal psychology.
With this innovative new school came an extraordinary faculty, a dynamic student body, and cutting-edge curricula and research that helped launch such fields as mind-body medicine, positive psychology, and consciousness studies, health and healing.
How do ITP Foundation and Sofia University Synergize?
The ITP Foundation is autonomous from Sofia University, with its own Board of Directors and tax status, while sharing office space and collaborating on research and scholarship.
