Our Communal, Transpersonal & Preventative Health Model
Our programs are grounded in Transpersonal & Liberation Psychology. A leading theorist in the field of liberation psychology, Mary Watkins, PhD, beautifully encapsulates our philosophy:
“The strands of individual, community, cultural, & ecological well-being are held tightly together, & are... necessary to one another. Psychological health... emerge(s) as capacities to create meaning are reignited, hopes are rekindled, & actions forged for achieving peace & economic and social justice.
The hope for peaceful, just, & ecologically vibrant communities that support psychological well-being inspires a set of practices that seek to nourish capacities for dialogue, complex & multifaceted identity formation, critical analysis & action”.
