Mission statement

To effectively bring integral transpersonal psychology and education to the global community.

Vision

Integral comes from the Latin integrum, from in, meaning “not” and tang-ere, meaning to touch: not touched, nothing has been taken away, where nothing is missing, full, pure, honest, uncorrupted. The transpersonal approach proposes a new innovative way of thinking which transcends the dualisms of the rational mind and includes the larger ecofield beyond the individual person. It is supported by unitive consciousness, an intuitive new way of being. This unique synergy can grasp the unity beyond dualisms. In a dynamic world, the combined approach of integral and transpersonal brings the proper tools to move with pure intent and an open mind, unified and interconnected, while knowing and respecting the laws that regulate it.

About the Bachelor program

This B.A. program is designed for young people motivated by the spirit of innovation and fresh ideas, who know that they have a present and a future as protagonists, innovators, and cultural creatives. They aspire to be at the frontier of a new culture of sharing and collaboration that can include and transcend the dualisms, as well as the differences and conflicts, within themselves as well as within the larger social and cultural system.

Ubiquity's Integral Approach to Learning

In this program, the dualistic separation between theory and practice, mind and body, action and feeling, male and female, past and future, matter and consciousness, traditional and scientific, academic and experiential is overcome through a transformative teaching methodology. This methodology is a new approach that teaches the transpersonal practice of how to “make the two one.” It is also informed by the core principle of integral theory to “transcend and include.”

This Program will follow the Ubiquity’s integral teaching methodology: along with reading texts, there will also be learning technologies for the mastery of inner experience, the management of emotions and their states of consciousness, enhancing interpersonal relationships, and practical application projects in the social context through real life mission and game scenarios.

1. Academic Study

Extensive study, including tests and creative assignments, will be based upon ancient wisdom traditions, post-conventional thinking, and the transpersonal paradigm. Students will master the different schools and approaches to psychology and psychotherapy and be conversant with the latest theories of personal development and spiritual mentoring, including practices based on earth consciousness and ecological awareness.

2. Self Mastery

All students are given the opportunity to complement their academic study with an exploration of various techniques and practices that foster conditions for moral development, personal growth, and development of their emotional, spiritual, social and spiritual intelligences.

Through Self Mastery exercises, students will be introduced to the understanding of the world that both modern physicists such as David Bohm as well as the ancient wisdom traditions considered to be essential to living the authentic life:

  • Knowledge that takes place in the entirety of the body, in its cells as well as in the emotions and the mind, and in expanded states of consciousness.
  • Learning that is achieved through mastery of felt-sense experiences: awareness of proprioceptive, kinesthetic, and visceral signals.
  • Learning that facilitates the ability to work through emotional personal history – through traumas and wounds as well as profoundly transformational experiences.
  • Learning that includes empathic identification, experiences archetypal in nature, elemental, unconscious, symbolic, imaginal processes, and psychic as well as mystical experiences.

3. Real Life Impact Projects

As with all Ubiquity programs, students will be involved in a real-life change project, designed to make a positive impact towards a world that works for all. Parallel to their courses, students participate together on projects of relevance to their lives.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the program, students should be able to:

  • Explore beyond the mind, to include and transcend conventional thinking in a postconventional way, to switch from the dual code of the rational consciousness to a unitive code and an intuitive, integral, transpersonal order.
  • Engage their inner experience and be increasingly guided from within, from the authentic self, and less from induced needs, fears and false images of self and society.
  • Describe a full-spectrum psychology that studies a continuum of human experience and behavior ranging from mental and emotional illness at one end, to what is generally considered “normal.”
  • Explore the transcendent dimensions of human experience, the nature and meaning of deep religious and mystical experiences, non-ordinary states of consciousness, and to explain how we might foster the fulfillment of our highest potentials as human beings.
  • Think across disciplines and draw on insights from not only the various areas of psychology, but also the sciences of cognition, consciousness, and the paranormal; philosophy; social and cultural theory; integral health theories and practices; poetry, literature, and the arts; and, the world’s spiritual and wisdom traditions.
  • Develop and describe their ability to let go of control in order to find the Self; to look beyond the ego’s beliefs to a creativity motivated to find the right answer here and now and the right action to make effective choices.
  • Bring increasing creativity to problem solving, asking critical questions, resolving important issues, and finding the “ally” in the “enemy.”

Class Participation and Grading

The Ubiquity learning system is based on collaboration, not competition. Students are encouraged to work and study together, to take their quizzes and tests together, and to work on their creative assignments together. The latest studies on learning demonstrate that the more students collaborate, the more they learn, the longer they remember what they learned, the higher their scores are, and the better they feel about themselves and their peers. Ubiquity encourages full collaboration between students who are encouraged to cluster in self selected groups and all share in a common grade. It takes a village to have a proper education.
