The 60-credit Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling concentration offers experiential and theoretical study that joins spirituality and psychology through methods such as meditation, Gestalt awareness, psychodynamic approaches, and client-centered therapy. Together, these methods challenge students to engage in deep inner personal exploration as well as focused relational work with others. Exploration of the psychotherapeutic process is balanced with personal reflection and shared observations with peers and instructors. Students choose from a variety of electives, including specialized transpersonal approaches, meditation, couples and family therapy, Jungian psychology, body awareness, and Gestalt therapy. The mindfulness-based transpersonal counseling concentration emphasis on integrating traditional and innovative methods provides students with a rich foundation for future service.
The On-campus program starts in August on campus in Boulder, Colorado and is completed within three years.
