IPAP is delighted to serve as an Allied Organization of Pacifica Graduate Institute, the renowned accredited American graduate school, which offers Masters and Doctoral Degrees in the fields of clinical psychology, counseling, mythological studies, community, liberation, ecopsychology, and the humanities. The institute has established an educational environment that nourishes respect for cultural diversity and individual differences, and an academic community that fosters a spirit of free and open inquiry. Students have access to an impressive array of education resources on Pacifica’s two campuses, both of which are located between the coastal foothills and the Pacific Ocean, a few miles south of Santa Barbara, California. In the words of its founder, “Pacifica is a Mission with an Institute. The mission, ‘anima mundi colendae gratia,’ (tending the soul of and in the world) has inspired a literal host of others far and wide-those who now carry the fire of the vision itself. The intensity of that calling is the seed impulse carried within the dreams of many. When cultivated, this soul spark, rooted in the animated presence of the deep psyche, opens to personal fulfillment and a more just and fertile planet. In an increasingly complex world, the scholarship and service of Pacifica’s faculty, staff, alumni, and students offers a soul centered ‘intelligence’ integral to what is being asked of us now.” (Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D., Chancellor, Founding President).
