Hundreds will gather at Menlo College in Atherton for the Spirituality and Psychology Conference next month to examine how integrating spirituality with psychology can improve clinical outcomes and lead to wisdom, health and wholeness. Colleagues from around the world will participate live online via videostream for the first time.

“For the first time a good portion of the conference will be live online,” remarks ITP President, Dr. Neal King. “Transpersonal Psychology is increasingly popular in other parts of the world, so we’re pleased to be able to include our global colleagues."

The Institute of Transpersonal Psychology announced today that its fourth bi-annual ATP-ITP Spirituality & Psychology Conference will bring together clinicians, therapists, spiritual guides, faith-based and healing practitioners, academics and researchers -- both locally and from around the world -- to explore the promises and pitfalls of the spiritual path. The conference will be held at Menlo College in Atherton, Friday February 17 through Sunday February 19, 2012.

The theme of the conference is Spirituality: Promises and Pitfalls. “Spiritual freedom and awakening are the goal, but spiritual bypassing and abusive power relationships are also well known perils on the spiritual path,” explains David Lukoff, PhD, conference organizer and ITP professor. “We are pleased to be offering a broad mix of workshops, presentations, and keynotes addressing this theme. We also have a wide variety of experiential offerings including Yoga, meditation, singing, drumming, and even a Shamanic prayer circle.”

The conference will feature keynote speakers Roger Walsh MD, Shauna Shapiro PhD, Robert Frager PhD, and Jeanne Achterberg PhD, along with a host of luminaries including Jim Fadiman, Arthur Hastings, Olga Louchakova, and David Lukoff, to examine the nature of spiritual illusion while we seek the wisdom and health benefits available in spirituality.
