Transformation begins within.

The University of Santa Monica brings forward a new paradigm that is both radical and simple: it starts in you. The transformed world you seek around you can only emerge by first transforming the world within you. That world is your own consciousness.

Soul-Centered Education

A Soul-Centered education begins with the assertion that rather than human beings who have a Soul, we are Souls having a human experience. Soul-Centered education is a process by which the inherent nature of each Soul is revealed experientially. Each individual student is recognized, honored, and respected for the essence of who they truly are.

Three Essential Questions

The University’s Master’s Degree Programs engage students experientially in the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology. This technology empowers them to convert their everyday life experiences into rungs on the ladder of Spiritual Evolution where the answer to this question can be discovered. Classes are conducted in a Soul-Centered educational environment, pioneered by Drs. Ron and Mary Hulnick.

As you learn and implement the practical technology of Spiritual Psychology in your daily life, you discover, amazingly, that what has stood in the way of Spiritual Progression, as well as a more fulfilling life, is what we call “unresolved issues”—negative reactions within each of us that are triggered by various situations, circumstances, and people. As you learn to heal these unresolved issues, you become clearer and more connected to your life’s purpose and naturally grow into enhanced levels of authentic success and fulfillment.

Through participating in the educational process experienced at USM, you make a meaningful contribution in your world in two distinct yet related ways. First, by healing unresolved issues, you literally subtract from the sum total of negativity on the planet and add to the sum total of positivity. Thus, at USM we say, “Every time one person resolves one issue, the whole of humanity moves forward.” Second, the more you evolve Spiritually, the more clearly your life’s purpose reveals itself and the more empowered you become to make your meaningful contribution in the world.
