From the Chancellor
"Pacifica is a Mission with an Institute. The mission, "anima mundi collende gratia," (tending the soul of and in the world) has inspired a literal host of others far and wide-those who now carry the fire of the vision itself. The intensity of that calling is the seed impulse carried within the dreams of many. When cultivated, this soul spark, rooted in the animated presence of the deep psyche, opens to personal fulfillment and a more just and fertile planet. In an increasingly complex world, the scholarship and service of Pacifica's faculty, staff, alumni, and students offers a soul centered "intelligence" integral to what is being asked of us now."
- Stephen Aizenstat, Ph.D., Chancellor, Founding President
The Chancellor supports the Institute's alumni outreach programs and Opus Archives and Research Center. The Chancellor will also expand advocacy on behalf of depth psychology, mythological studies, and Pacifica's aspirations and core values in the world.
