William James is considered to be the first American psychologist. He, along with Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung pioneered the field at its inception. James had a particularly spiritual and evolutionary view of the human psyche. He was particularly interested in the experience of religious/spiritual experiences and their power to transform the people who have them.

In this course we will explore some of the central ideas of his conceptions of human transformation.

[Course] The Transformation of Self: An Exploration of the Spiritual Psychology of William James with Jeff Carreira
If you ask Jeff Carreira what he’s most excited about he will reply without hesitation—“cultivating the conditions for the emergence of a new paradigm by supporting as many individuals as possible to articulate their deepest realization of truth.” Mystical philosopher, spiritual guide, teacher, writer and lecturer —are just a few descriptors that come to mind when describing Carreira and his extensive career as a seeker, student and teacher.
