Canadian Institute for Transpersonal and Integrative Sciences

ABOUT CITIS: Founded by Harold Finkleman, The Canadian Institute for Transpersonal and Integrative Sciences is an organization devoted to sharing and promoting emerging counselling approaches, health sciences and alternative technologies that emphasize organic resources, nature’s strategies and self-empowerment. These include both ancient and contemporary sciences–personal, transpersonal, medical, spiritual, eco-logical, techno-logical, environmental practices and more.

Inspired by the work of Australian neurologist and forensic psychologist Dr. R. H. Brian Costello and Canadian integrative medicine pioneer Dr. Max Vogel, the Institute promotes international academic exchanges in the form of individual, peer, group and community meetings and collaborations, and where possible: conferences. The intent is both to attract international leading-edge healing and scientific resources, training and services to Canada and to share Canadian talents and resources with the international community.

CITIS operates and houses two academically significant libraries in Calgary, Canada, located on the banks of the most celebrated Bow River, flanked by the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

The Institute provides associates with the libraries, research resources and regional and international collaborative opportunities. It will seek to provide visiting scholars with access to peers, offices, consulting space where appropriate and research resources where available. It would provide local and regional organizations with access and collaborative opportunities with these scholars.

The Institute promotes local institutional and community access to workshops and lectures that take place through the Institute. Although most of the Institute’s education and training programs are provided for lay and professionals alike, many are fully accredited programs– offering Continuing Education Units for professionals.
