Bahman A. K. Shirazi is former director of graduate studies at California Institute of Integral Studies(CIIS). He has been actively affiliated with that organisation since 1983. His doctoral dissertation, “Self in Integral Psychology” was the first of its kind in the field of integral psychology. He came to share with us part of his personal background ,in his quest for joy and happiness , and mainly spoke about integral consciousness and the history and organisation of of the CIIS.

Since 1983, Bahman A.K. Shirazi, Ph.D., has been actively affiliated with the California Institute of Integral Studies, a private non-profit institution of higher education founded and based on the integral vision of Sri Aurobindo and The Mother. CIIS was founded by Haridas and Bina Chaudhuri and is located in San Francisco, California. Bahman’s primary interests are in the fields of integral psychology and methodology, in which he has taught courses in the past few years. Bahman is also currently an adjunct faculty member at John F. Kennedy University in Orinda, California, and Dominican College of San Rafael, California
Bahman’s doctoral dissertation, titled Self in Integral Psychology, is the first doctoral dissertation in the nascent field of integral psychology. Drawing on the original approach of Haridas Chaudhuri to the field, Bahman’s primary focus is on a general integrative approach to the field of psychology, creating the foundations for a complete psychology of body-mind-spirit, with the cardinal goal of developing insights into the nature of human psychospiritual development and the process of integral self-realization.
