USM Community

“What you seek is seeking you.” — Jalaluddin Rumi

When you ask a graduate from the University of Santa Monica what makes the USM community unique, they’ll likely tell you about the deep bonds, lifelong friendships, and sense of homecoming—of finding one’s place in a conscious educational community.

What fosters such a community?

Through USM’s unique Soul-Centered educational process, students learn to identify, recognize, and navigate their lives from inside a Spiritual Context. This context, combined with USM’s experiential curriculum and the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology, empowers students to identify and resolve long-held limiting beliefs, judgments, misidentifications, and patterns in service to the deeper revelation of who they truly are—Loving, Peaceful, Compassionate, and Joyful beings. As students awaken into their Authentic Selves, they naturally begin to create meaningful transformation in their lives—both personally and professionally—and in their worlds.

At USM, the curriculum directly applies to all aspects of a student’s life—their career, personal relationships, and the impact they make in the world. Students learn, integrate, and practice the Principles and Practices of Spiritual Psychology with their classmates and in their everyday lives until these tools become more than tools—they become integral to a USM graduate’s Way of Being.

It is through the depth of this shared experience that each graduating class creates a supportive classroom environment in which lasting learning and real transformation occur. If your heart is calling you to be a part of a thriving educational community where transformation begins from the inside out, we welcome you to connect with our Admissions Advisors, all of whom are graduates of USM’s Programs in Spiritual Psychology, to explore what a USM education can mean in your life.
