Craig Chalquist

California Institute of Integral Studies

Craig Chalquist, Ph.D. is core faculty in East-West Psychology and former Associate Provost of Pacifica Graduate Institute. He teaches at the intersection of psyche, story, nature, reenchantment, and imagination through courses on depth psychology, applied folklore, ecotherapy, and his own field of terrapsychology, the study of how the things of the world get into our hearts and live there: “Converse with everything!”


I have taught in higher ed for 15 years: community college, undergrad, and several graduate programs. All my books seek to understand how intricate linkages of selfhood, folklore, relationships, places, history, and Earth intersect to reenchant our relations with self, world, and each other.

Areas of Research / Professional Expertise

    I have designed and launched more than thirty courses and several certificates in the following areas: terrapsychology (my own coinage), qualitative and theoretical research, depth psychology, ecopsychology, ecotherapy, mythology and folklore, and wisdom traditions like gnosticism and hermetism.
