Welcome to the Akamai Transpersonal Psychology Program!

Welcome to the transpersonal psychology program!

The principles of transpersonal and consciousness studies, when applied to other endeavors, can greatly improve the effectiveness of practitioners in field. This is especially true in the fields of mental and physical health, intuitional healing, organizational development, environmental concerns, education, peace and diplomacy, and various human services.

By advancing our understanding of the human experience, in terms of transpersonal and consciousness, we can enhance our relationships and knowledge, of the self, families, and our community. Research developed in this field is not speculative, but real-life conditions that have practical applications and solutions, which have demonstrated results in all aspects of the human condition.

Transpersonal and Consciousness Studies can address the special needs of the individual and community when applied to today’s cultural conditions, as it addresses the personal aspects of living the human experience. This program will present students with the findings of contemporary research, and the latest evolving theories, as well as examining personal techniques which have proven most effective in making positive and lasting changes within the context of current challenges. It is our pleasure to invite serious students to join us in this quest for a fuller understanding of their internal processes (consciousness studies) and their connections to the external (transpersonal experiences).

Kind regards,

Steven J. Cox, M.P.A., M.B.A., M.P.M., Ph.D., Ed.D.

PROGRAM AUDIENCE AND OBJECTIVES
The principles of transpersonal psychology, when applied to other endeavors, can greatly improve the effectiveness of practitioners in a wide array of fields. This is especially true in the fields of mental and physical health, intentional healing, organizational development, environmental concerns, education, peace and diplomacy, and various human services.

By advancing our understanding of the human experience, in terms of the transpersonal, we can enhance our relationships and knowledge, of the self, families, and our community. Research developed in this field is not speculative, but reflects real-life conditions that have practical applications and solutions, which have demonstrated results in all aspects of the human condition.

Transpersonal Psychology can address the special needs of the individual and community when applied to today’s cultural conditions, as it addresses the personal aspects of living the human experience. This program will present students with the findings of contemporary research, and the latest evolving theories, as well as examining personal techniques which have proven most effective in making positive and lasting changes within the context of current challenges. It is our pleasure to invite serious students to join us in this quest for a fuller understanding of transpersonal experiences.

The Transpersonal Psychology Program is designed to serve the needs of professionals interested in the study of states and stages of consciousness in relation to optimal living and the amelioration of human and planetary suffering; research and practice applications derived from empirical (quantitative, qualitative, mixed) psychological research; transformation and transformative processes applied to health, healing, and thriving; the co-evolution of culture and consciousness in self, culture, and nature; the power of the transpersonal perspective for social justice and ecological restoration and thriving; and the beauty and power of the sacred and numinous in their own and other’s lives.

  1. Mental and behavioral health professionals (psychotherapist, social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, mental health nurses, coaches) whose career and personal interests move them into the fields of transformative studies and the transpersonal in applied praxis.
  2. Psychologists and social scientists (e.g. anthropologists, sociologists) with research interests in spiritual, transpersonal, and/or integral psychology.
  3. Allied, integrative, and complementary health practitioners with interests in transpersonal, spiritual, mind-body (energy medicine and indigenous practices inclusive), integral, and ecological healing.
  4. Researchers and academics interested in mapping states, stages, and participatory dimensions of consciousness and its impact.
  5. Professionals interested in the application of psychological science methods and practice toward transformative practices in business and the broader areas of social and ecological justice.
  6. Individuals with a strong background of study into the human condition and applications of the transpersonal into human and planetary thriving and the amelioration of suffering.
  7. Professionals, academics, and relevant practitioners interested engaging their own transpersonal journey with greater depth while obtaining a professional "top up" degree or post-graduate certificate of completion.

ACHIEVING PREREQUISITES
Well qualified applicants lacking in academic and professional background in psychology may be accepted to the Transpersonal Psychology graduate program based on the strength of their overall application (e.g. preparation and experience in allied health and social sciences, academic merit, strong research proposal). Under these conditions, accepted students would be required to add missing competencies to their program.
