For the last few years, I have served as Chair of the Board of the ITP Foundation. The Foundation is a nonprofit corporation, independent from Sofia University. We are responsible for all charitable donations that have been given to ITP and for ongoing support for transpersonal education and research.
Our research mission is to support exploration of topics that are often ignored, including the study of consciousness, mysticism, spiritual states, psychical research, healing, creativity, unusual mental states (what might now be called altered states), hypnotism, and the psychology of spiritual experience.
– Bob Frager, Founder
ITP Foundation Sponsorship
Working with Sofia University, we have sponsored scholarships for graduate students in transpersonal psychology. We have also sponsored research and inquiry in the field of transpersonal psychology. We are managing a grant from the Marin Community Foundation for research by Marilyn Schlitz on transformation and aging. Marilyn was formerly President of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and is now Dean of the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology program at Sofia.
We are also committed to renewing the work of the old ITP William James Center, which will house a new laboratory, including virtual reality equipment, psychophysiological instrumentation, and other transformational technology tools and resources.
