We are creating an online Master of Science degree in Eastern Psychology.
Coach, author & osteopath, Dr. Wolfgang Henckert, PhD, MSc.D, DO, a graduate of National University of Medical Sciences (Spain) who lives and practices in Namibia has joined us to teach a course on Eastern Psychology Principles for the MSc (E.Psych) program.
Professor Henckert is author of 9 books including Navigating the Spiritual Path and the Heal Your Way. He is passionate about a holistic, trauma-informed and transpersonal approach to healthcare – integrating a grounded approach to orthomolecular, functional, and integrative medicine, distilling multiple approaches, transpersonal psychology and philosophia perennis into holding space, moving energy, and facilitating healing.
