Board Member Pacifica Graduate Institute

 I’m delighted to announce that I’m a new board member of the esteemed academic institution, Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, California. Pacifica’s focus on depth psychology compliments my career in consciousness studies and health and well-being.

The motto, “Animae Mundi Colendae Gratia,” is a beautiful framework for the spirit of the institution:

By creating an educational environment with a spirit of free and open inquiry, consistent with the recognized values of academic freedom, Pacifica is dedicated to cultivating and harvesting the gifts of the human imagination. So that these insights may influence the personal, cultural, and planetary concerns of our era, this dedication is contained in the motto: animae mundi colendae gratia Рfor the sake of tending soul in and of the world. (Reference)

I’ve very much enjoyed getting to know the founder, Steven Aizenstat and other board members, and with enthusiasm look forward to engaging with the Pacifica community!
