Integral Education Leader Sponsors Groundbreaking Psychology Publication
San Francisco, Calif.— On November 20, 2014, the Journal of Holistic Psychology (the Journal), an annual volume dedicated to emergent practice and theory in psychology and psychotherapy, joined with California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) to collaboratively publish the most forward-thinking, compassionate, and challenging conversations happening in psychology today.
“Rarely does a publication align with a university’s core values as does the Journal of Holistic Psychology with CIIS,” said Joseph Subbiondo, President of CIIS. He added: “We look forward to an enduring collaboration that will be mutually beneficial in every way.”
Through theme-based volumes that highlight topics reflective of our times, the Journal and CIIS seek to further enrich and extend integral-holistic perspectives in psychology and psychotherapy, while working together to inspire social change, locally, nationally, and internationally.
“We are excited for the opportunity to join forces with CIIS, bringing together a true holistic vision that is about inclusion—leaving nothing out. That CIIS is dedicated to and has a track record of inspiring and promoting social change and consciousness makes the institution an ideal partner for us,” said Lauren Gonzalez, Co-founding editor of the Journal.
The Journal and CIIS will publish one volume yearly, including clinical and experiential-based writings and research blended with commentary and essays from top writers, practitioners, researchers, and educators worldwide, as CIIS and the Journal share an international following.
”This important development between the Journal and CIIS further extends our capacity to meet the growing global demand for holistic-integral resources and solutions," said Jonathan Reynolds, Co-founding editor of the Journal.
CIIS’s Dr. Chalquist, Department Chair of the University’s East-West Psychology program, has joined the Journal as Executive Editor, effective immediately. The author of several psychology-focused books and many papers and articles, Dr. Chalquist co-edited the widely cited anthology Ecotherapy: Healing with Nature in Mind (Sierra Club Books) and is on the boards of the Oakland DBT and Mindfulness Center, Holos Institute, and the Depth Psychology Alliance.
Likewise, the Journal welcomes Justin McGahan as a Co-partnering Editor and part owner of the Journal. McGahan is a doctoral student in counseling psychology, and has worked with the Journal since its inception in 2011.
The volumes run 250 to 350 pages, and will expand online through podcasts and other multimedia presentations. The Journal is available in both print and e-book form, from amazon.com, select booksellers, and the Journal’s website. The next volume, themed to present a holistic psychology-oriented response to current events, will be available in 2016, to coincide with the United States presidential election.
About the Journal of Holistic Psychology
The Journal of Holistic Psychology is an annual print journal dedicated to offering thought-provoking and action-inviting works from pioneers in the field of holistic psychology, which comprises mindfulness, somatic, integral, Jungian, ecotherapy, transpersonal, dreamwork, expressive arts, drama therapy and other holistically-based psychotherapy modalities. The Journal is a bellwether of holistic studies, the namesake of New York City’s Open Center certificate program in Holistic Psychology. Spotlighting the work of those who guide and represent the leading edge in the next wave of psychotherapeutic approaches, the Journal is anchored within psychology’s lineage as a historical signpost of rising consciousness around the world. The essays and research papers written today serve as a snapshot of the present, a lens on the future, and an archive for the history of consciousness, which each of us writes every day. Annually, the Journal tracks the holistic field’s perspective on the evolution of thought, emotion, and awareness.

We are excited to announce that Volume II of the Journal of Holistic Psychology is now available as an eBook through Amazon.com. We hope that making the Journal
available in this new format will allow those of you around the world to easily access and benefit from our offerings. Although we at the Journal still consider our print offerings to be far
superior to the digitized versions, we are confident that you will find the same content, innovative thinking, and useful references of benefit in the same ways that you have come to expect from
our print versions - we trust that your curiosity and/or research will be well fed by present and future volumes of the Journal, regardless of which format you choose to utilize.
Here's the link to Volume II's eBook: www.amazon.com
Journal Advisory Board member Ken Bradford recently published an innovative new book on revisioning the way in which psychology attempts to know the mind of the Other. We congratulate Ken, and thank him for the way in which his work further inclines the field of psychology in the direction of a greater holistic appreciation. The I of the Other: Mindfulness-Based Diagnosis and the Question of Sanity is a must read for folks in the helping professions.
The Journal of Holistic Psychology website is currently ranked as the #4 holistic psychology website on the net... way to go! With your support, we're curious to see how many votes it would take to move us up a spot or two. Here's where the ranking is hosted:
Thank you for your support, and for helping to disseminate holistic ideals in our world - every bit makes a difference.
We hope that you are as excited as we are to see Volume II of the Journal of Holistic Psychology completed. With articles by Stanley Krippner, Charles Tart, Craig Chalquist, Jorge Ferrer, Stuart Sovatsky, Bill Bowen, and many other luminaries in the fields related to and influenced by Holistic Psychology, Volume II proves to be a strong second offering that will help place holistic thinking and ideals securely 'on the map' of our modern culture's way of perceiving reality, both outwardly and inwardly. At the Journal, we see our work as the hub, or point of intersection, of those many psychological disciplines that previously felt of 'their own limb', but can now truly integrate in a more powerful and pragmatically-driven capacity. We hope that you too will see and participate in the great benefits such integration can bring to our fractured world.
Volume II of the Journal of Holistic Psychology is beginning to take shape - we are very excited, as our 'sophomore' offering will include articles by several leaders in the holistic and related fields. We hope that our growing community will be as happy and inspired by our work as we are; even in these early stages, the Journal is continuing to mature and unfold by remarkable leaps and bounds. This is of course exactly what we had hoped for, but to see it actually happening brings us so much joy!
That said, we are curious to hear from all of you: what areas or elements of holistic psychology are you personally most interested in? Or put another way: how are holistic sensibilities most pertinent, present, and tangibly alive in your own life?
Lastly, thank you once again for your interest in JOHP's vision - we hope to continue to provide you with cutting edge offerings from the world of holistic psychology. As you've heard us say before, and as you'll surely hear again and again: we're just getting started...
