Would You Like To Help Transform the World?

Many would say our planet is in crisis. Natural resources are being exploited at unsustainable rates. Climate change continues to threaten our very survival on the planet. The gap between the rich and poor continues to widen leaving millions of people starving and without many of the basic necessities of life. What we need is a fundamental shift in human, social, business and government thinking. A shift in attitude which accepts our fundamental interconnectedness and global responsibility for the welfare of all living creatures and the planet we share. A shift in thinking, feeling and awareness is needed. A transformation of human consciousness which goes beyond (trans) personal, self-serving and egoic thinking. A transformation of humanity in all aspects of our personal, professional and political lives. An approach to living, thinking, feeling and engaging with our fellow humans which goes beyond (trans) ego and self-interest. This is the realm of TRANSpersonal perspectives - this is the field of TRANSpersonal psychology.

The transpersonal psychology programmes and courses offered through Alef Trust are a response to the growing need to create sustainable and ethical development, social and ecological harmony and opportunities for individual growth and community transformation. Our programmes and courses flourish through a culturally diverse, globally distributed student body and are delivered by acclaimed instructors across a broad range of academic disciplines, research backgrounds and wellness philosophies.

Courses & Programmes Starting September 2018

(1) Consciousness, Spirituality & Transpersonal Psychology (MSc)

(2) Approached to Consciousness (Open Learning)

(3) Transpersonal Psychology (Open Learning)

(4) All Open Learning Courses (Starting February 2019)

“I find the course a hugely positive experience: the academics; the community; the resources. It’s been eye-opening. I work full time as well. There is flexibility around the time that I do things. Everyone is hugely supportive, and very respectful and responsive to any questions I sent in emails.” ~ Robin Jordan (Ireland)

The first (led by Ellis Linders) considers the cultural implications of the shift into secular spirituality, where self-agency and self-realisation are the spiritual focus.

"In this course we explore the nature of creativity and its relationship to human development and growth. We examine the psychosomatic dynamics at work in any creative process, focusing in particular on arts-based practices, such as creative writing, spontaneous sketching and drawing, and movement and voice improvisation. The practices are contextualised within the history and philosophy of arts movements, the psychology of creativity & creative therapies."

Signup TODAY:


"In this course we explore transpersonal dimensions of dreaming, drawing on scientifically grounded theories and empirical findings in dream research, as well as on historical and spiritual traditions. We examine how our dreams relate to our waking life and how they can bring inspiration and even transform us."

Signup TODAY:


"In this course we examine and evaluate psychological insights found within the corpus of kabbalistic texts. Such insights may be seen to comprise two related aspects: First, the challenge to understanding the nature of mind and, second, the development of techniques and practices directed at attaining a transformed level of being."

Signup TODAY:

Along with our PhD, Master's and Postgraduate Certificate/Diploma Programmes, Alef Trust also offers 13 Open Learning Courses which can be taken individually and completely online.
