Leaders in Transpersonal Development
The Huntington Meditation and Imagery Center, founded in 1980, is an international training group for bringing transpersonal development into the health and helping professions. Meaning beyond the personality, transpersonal refers to the deeper innate resources in human nature – inner peace, inner wisdom, life purpose and oneness. Our training utilizes the many forms of meditation, imagery and energy practices to awaken these beneficial resources for our patients, clients, students, employees, congregants and others who ask for our help. Each of our faculty brings 40 years of professional clinical experience to this work.
Our typical student is a nurse, physician, counselor, social worker, psychologist, educator, clergy and others who have explored topics such as meditation, spirituality, energy, healing, human potentials, and wonder how to integrate their interests into a new practice specialty. The beauty of our transpersonal study together is that you first learn it by experiencing it for yourself. The consistent feedback we get is that our students enjoy the blend of professional and personal growth. Our students go on to work as transpersonal nurse coaches, transpersonal psychiatrists, transpersonal teachers and other transpersonal-based roles.

Our Latest Publication
Vulnerability and the Spiritual Journey
Dante’s Path guides you along the steps of the classic Western spiritual journey. Oprah’s “O Magazine” called the first edition (2003) of Dante’s Path “divine therapy,” and letters came in from clergy, counselors, nurses, executives, teachers, soldiers, and seekers of many backgrounds telling how Dante’s Path helped them to increase their conscious contact with their innate spiritual nature. This new second edition is filled with specific steps, methods, detailed explanations and images so that you can go on the classic spiritual journey for yourself.
