We honor the direction of change that is already happening in each person, and support whatever transformation is already wanting to happen. If you are reading this there is probably already something in you that is changing. Your center of balance is moving. Something new in yourself is wanting to emerge.
Transformational processes are emergent processes that unfold over time. They can be accompanied by different states, or any combination of states, or a series of states—low energy states such as sadness and depression, anxious and fearful states, or high activation states. This means that transformational processes are difficult for us to navigate by ourselves, especially in a society that shuns such processes or fails to assign their importance in a person’s development over their lifespan. Being in a cohort with others who are navigating their own transformational journey is an exceptionally valuable and effective course to follow when you are undergoing these significant periods of human development.
In the Consciousness Studies and Transpersonal Psychology course, we have a transformational philosophy of education that understands the non-egoic evolutionary potentials of the core self. We understand the biological, neuro-affective, and psycho-spiritual processes that are involved, as well as how they interact to prepare the person to become a higher version of their self, a more authentic expression of their truth, more aware of their deeper, inner being, more confident in sharing their unique gifts in the world.
Humanity is growing ever more interconnected and interdependent.
We believe academic scholarship and education must be founded on an integrative and holistic worldview in order to enhance a broad understanding of complex human issues, stimulate individual and collective awareness and wellbeing, and contribute to the betterment, sustainability, and regeneration of community and society.
Every month we host personalized online events to give you a Taste of TGI.
Learn more about how holistic education can make a difference in your life. Our programs help you uplevel your personal and professional lives in tangible, useful ways. We hope to see you at this webinar.
The future is now. Join us.

She applies her models to help organizations become more open and participatory, enabling workplaces to become more authentic to the whole experience of being human.
