Transpersonal means beyond the personality
Transpersonal development means discovering the natural qualities beyond your personality that are already present in your nature: inner peace, inner wisdom, life purpose and oneness. 


Transpersonal was first used in 1310 in the world spiritual masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, by the Florentine poet Dante in describing his journey of discovery into higher states of consciousness.  His lineage of discovery continued into modern times in the work of the 20th Century Florentine psychiatrist, Roberto Assagioli, and now continues in the latest neuroscientific discoveries about the higher brain.


You can train with us to make this journey for yourself and learn how to awaken these discoveries in the people you help.


The result is that these discoveries become quietly life-changing influences in your experience of daily life.  We know this through work with hundreds of people over 40 year careers in healthcare.   


Bonney Gulino Schaub, MS, RN, PMHCNS, NC-BC and Richard Schaub, PhD have trained health professionals in the United States, Canada and Europe, consulted with government agencies and private business organizations,  written five books and many professional articles.  Their methods are applied in every setting, including hospitals, clinics, wellness services, human resources, high school and college counseling, executive and nurse coaching, private medical and psychotherapy practice and spiritual/religious groups.


 We look forward to your questions.

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.
