Program: The Transpersonal psychology program at Akamai is an exciting venture that is designed to engage students in their studies in every aspect of their lives. The Akamai transpersonal psychology program promotes individual development and transformation, while focusing upon critical thinking skills and a vision of one’s self and the surrounding universe, which goes beyond personal considerations—entering
the “transpersonal” realm. This transpersonal realm may include a variety of experiences, inclusive of visions, dreams, creative work, psychic experiences, mysticism, spirituality, shamanic experiences, psychedelic experiences, and much more. However, the historical precedent of transpersonal psychology was the movement of humanistic psychology, which focused upon the factors of human growth, creativity, and self-actualization, in a context of warm, empathic, genuine, caring relationships. These essential human ingredients of caring and authenticity are factors that are interwoven in Akamai’s Transpersonal Psychology Program, as humanistic psychology is intimately connected with transpersonal psychology at Akamai.
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. Our goal is to nurture you in your potential to become self-actualized in life, and this may very well take its form in you experiencing altered states of consciousness as well as stimulating intellectual voyages.
We very much look forward to getting to know you in the context of you becoming a transpersonal psychology student at Akamai University.

As a hands on exercise, students themselves will engage with meditation and somatic-awareness practices aimed at re-establishing the unity of mind-body consciousness. Through these practices students will learn to access their own intuition and embodied wisdom, as well as gaining transpersonal insights. Practices of mindfulness and presence are cornerstones of the program.
This program offers the foundation for discovery and empowerment that leads to greater fulfillment, purpose, and effectiveness in students' personal and professional lives as well as in their clients’.
