Saybrook is proud to sponsor the 17th annual International Transpersonal Conference, to be held in Moscow from June23-27.

Upon its conclusion, the conference will present several volumes documenting its proceedings with papers covering not only a comprehsive overview of the forty years of the transpersonal paradigm through the voices of its founders and pioneers, but also outline its future perspectives through the work presented by the conference's keynote speakers, artists, and spiritual teachers.
