The SMBI Mission
Spirituality Mind Body Institute (SMBI) at Teachers College, Columbia University, is a leading academic center for research and practice on spirituality in psychology. SMBI is part of the clinical psychology program at Teachers College, which offers degrees at both the masters and doctoral level. We are the first Ivy League program to grant a degree in psychology with an emphasis in spirituality, offering graduate student training in both the science and practice of spirituality within psychotherapy, meditation, wellness practices and mind-body work, as well as the arts. Our website is designed to allow an emerging generation of spiritually-oriented thinkers, healers and leaders to converge around new ideas and to find one another. We hope to build a foundation for spiritually-oriented public discourse.
Welcome to our Community!
