A journal of self-discovery, Finding the Phoenix, by author Dr. Karel James Bouse introduces seven tools for transformative self-discovery, including how to deconstruct one’s lenses, consciousness and identity; use expressive arts to access hidden elements of the self; connect with nature from a mystical perspective; find the meaning of your dreams; use Neo-shamanic techniques for interdimensional self-exploration, demystify anomalous experiences and phenomena; and construct a personal mythology to discover your life purpose.

This Program contains complete guided meditations to help you complete the exercises described in the book.



Welcome to the Institute of Emerging Psychologies. We are an educational organization which seeks to foster the evolution of an alternative multidisciplinary psychology based on the work of William James, Carl Jung and James Hillman. We encourage and incorporate research into consciousness, altered states, the arts and humanities, spirituality and mythologies as core elements of this emerging field of inquiry.

We offer multidisciplinary, interactive courses, workshops and personally centered tutorials for individuals and small cohorts online via ZOOM in a variety of areas including:

  • Soul Building Studies,
  • Ancestral & Transgenerational Studies,
  • Neo-shamanic Studies and
  • Mythological Studies

We are followed by an international array of authors, scientists, academics, therapists, students and other inquisitive folks. Since our founding in 2018 we have been bringing increasing awareness to the research, literature and therapeutic potential of these areas of study that are still largely unrecognized in mainstream psychological practice through our courses, books, social media and our Newsletter.
