Are you suffering from Post-Traumatic Election Distress (PTED)?

February 17, 2017 at 3:05 PM    Posted by Drs. Ron & Mary Hulnick


Based upon the level of emotional disturbance and “I’m upset because…” we’re witnessing during this unusual post-election season, we’ve been asked about our perspective regarding it all. Especially, of course, if you’re a USM student or grad, you won’t be surprised to hear us begin with one of the Principles of Spiritual Psychology—How you relate to the issue IS the issue.

November 9, 2016 at 12:26 PM    Posted by Drs. Ron & Mary Hulnick

One of the most frequent questions we are asked is: “What is the relationship, if any, between Spirituality and money.” Obviously, it’s not a direct correlation since if it were, the most Spiritually advanced people would be the richest—and we know experientially that’s simply not so, unless of course, you define Mother Teresa as a terribly low achiever Spiritually, living and serving the way she did among the poorest of the poor.

Choosing Life

Choosing-Life_630x275-1.jpg A week ago, our Beloved outdoor kitty, Theresa, who came into our lives through our mutual adoption of her and her of us about 18 months ago, was snatched by a coyote intent on making her its breakfast. Through Grace, our assistant Peggy “happened” to arrive at our home and in Divine timing turned her head, thus seeing the coyote running up the driveway to our neighbor’s house with Beloved Theresa in her mouth.

A Spiritual Psychology Perspective on Addiction & Recovery

March 14, 2016 at 5:05 PM    Posted by Drs. Ron & Mary Hulnick

A Spiritual Psychology Perspective on Addiction and Recovery I suspect it’s not unusual that at most gatherings where people come together seeking deep healing and growth, a fair number of participants have been involved in the worlds of addiction and recovery. That’s certainly been our experience over the years at the University of Santa Monica. During a recent class, a woman by the name of Jennifer stood up seeking clarification pertaining to a dilemma she was experiencing that we recognize as quite common among people in recovery.

Gifts of the Season

December 22, 2015 at 2:53 PM    Posted by Drs. Ron & Mary Hulnick


Loving Christmas and the Season of Lights as many do, I’ve adopted numerous longstanding traditions and developed others over the years. Decorating our home inside and out is something that heralds the holidays as I experience the Spirit of Peace and Beauty descending upon our place and in our Hearts. I enjoy selecting the winter bedding plants, ordering poinsettias for the patio, overseeing hanging the wreaths, etc., etc.
