1) Psychology at Meridian draws on several diversified orientations to psychology that have emerged during the mid- to latter part of the twentieth century, including:
2) Psychology at Meridian seeks to reclaim the soul as the primary concern of psychology, accessing soul as it is known to us through the imagination.
3) Psychology at Meridian draws on numerous knowledge domains that provide significant psychological knowledge, but that are not a recognized part of the conventional discipline and profession of psychology. One such domain, Imaginal Psychology, draws on spiritual traditions, somatic practices, creative arts, mythology, indigenous wisdom, mystical philosophy, literary and poetic imagination, deep ecology, cultural history, and social critique.
