SOFIA簡介:

As the first and only transpersonal university in the world, Sofia University is guided by its long-standing transpersonal values.

身为全球唯一的一​​所跨人际精神心理学的大学,索菲亚大学本着其绵长的跨人际价值精神,不断往前迈进。我们认为,个人与世界接轨的整体性及其重要性,远远大过每个单独个体的个性与其扮演的角色。

Since Sofia University’s founding in 1975 by Dr. Robert Frager, PhD in Social Psychology from Harvard University, and Dr. James Fadiman, PhD in Psychology from Stanford University, our transpersonal values and our whole-person, experiential approach to education, have attracted diverse seekers from around the world. At Sofia University, we celebrate all spiritual paths. Although we may be on different paths, or at different points along the same path, we walk the labyrinth of life together, as a community.

索菲亚大学于1975年由哈佛大学社会心理学罗伯特福瑞歌博士和斯坦福大学心理学詹姆斯法迪曼博士创校以来,借着跨人际价值精神,对于整体性及临床教育的重视,我们成功的吸引了来自全世界各地对这方面学程有兴趣的学生及学者。在索菲亚大学,我们展开双臂欢迎每一种不同的心灵信仰。我们都对人生事物有着不同的信念与信仰,但我们以共同体的方式一起在这个迷宫里走出我们的道路。

In addition to pursuing a degree – whether a Bachelor’s, Master’s or Doctoral degree – our students seek personal growth and strive to learn how best to serve others and the world.

At Sofia University, whether you are pursuing pure knowledge, a sense of community, or personal transformation, as you work toward your degree, you will be challenged not only intellectually, but also emotionally, physically, spiritually, creatively, and socially as you and your fellow students help each other grow as human beings.

除了追求学士、硕士或博士学位,我们的学生在获取学位的同时,更寻求个人成长并努力学习如何帮助他人并且让世界更美好。

在索菲亚大学里,无论您是单纯追求知识或是追求服务社区或个人的转变,您在攻取学位的同时,不仅将面临智力上的挑战,同时也将面临情感上,身体上,精神上,创造力上和社交上的挑战。在蜕变得过程中,您和您的同学将互相帮忙并共同成长。

WHAT IS TRANSPERSONAL?

What is Transpersonal?

The word ‘transpersonal’ was first used in the early 1900’s by William James to mean beyond (trans) the personal, the personality or the persona.

The transpersonal world is beyond our everyday singular human existence. It embraces all aspects of what it is to be human, acknowledging the greater wholeness, of you, of humanity and of all things.

While most commonly associated with psychology, transpersonal values and perspectives can be applied to other areas of study. This is what Sofia University aspires to do. With nearly 40 years’ experience in transpersonal psychology as the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (ITP), Sofia University has expanded into disciplines other than psychology and into undergraduate study, while maintaining our historic mission and core values.

什么是“跨人际心理学( Transpersonal)”?

这个专有名词最早源于1900年代初期由威廉•詹姆斯( William James)首次提出。跨人际心理学是指跨越自我、跨越人性和跨越个人领域的心理学。

索菲亚大学长久以来为了改善人文性和地球的可持续发展,一直在探索心理学和灵性学的前沿。

超个人心理学是一个全方位的心理学。他囊括了一系列的人类体验和行为,从严重的没有能力维持正常生活,情绪和精神上的病症的一个极端,到我们普遍认为的“正常”,健康的行为的另外一个极端,以及在中间不同程度的正常和不适应。然后通过加入了很认真学术导向,运用在即将发生和超越人经历的体验上:人奇特的经历体验,表演,成就和真正的智慧,本质,深度宗教和神秘体验的意义,非正常意识状态,以及怎样挖掘出人很高级别的潜能。

超个人心理学家涉足于各个学科,所获得的理解不光来自于心理学的层面,而且包括了认知科学,意识学,超自然科学,哲学,社会文化理论,整合健康理论和实践,诗歌,文学和艺术,以及世界的灵性和智慧源头。
