THE INSTITUTE OF ESOTERIC PSYCHOLOGY
is an organization devoted to education and research directed toward establishing the synergistic application of alternative practices e.g. expressive arts, dreamwork, personal mythology, and deep, focused meditation as valuable means for personal integration by individuals and as adjuncts to standard clinical practice in psychology and medicine.
Karel James Bouse, Ph.D./Ph.D.

The courses and classes offered by the Institute of Esoteric Psychology are for educational purposes only, and are not a substitute for psychotherapy. Dr. Bouse is not a licensed psychotherapist, and the services offered by IEP are not therapeutic in nature.
