Welcome to the Wisdom School of Graduate Studies, an initiatory pathway to a deeper dialogue concerning life's mysteries

The Wisdom School of Graduate Studies (formerly Wisdom University) is a graduate school within Ubiquity University dedicated to individual and global transformation. Our students and faculty seek to be part of evolutionís larger return of humans to the natural order as participants rather than dominants, as one species living respectfully and cooperatively with all species. We offer Masters and Doctoral programs in the creative endeavor of tending the seeds of a new civilization that seeks to embody human possibility as an aspect of a larger planetary unfolding in a Living Universe. We draw on all the wisdom traditions, both ancient and modern, including the newer sciences, to combine deep experience, intellectual discernment, and creative expression in service of humanity finding its place within the larger ecofield. We believe this to be the highest calling of our time. We invite students, new faculty, and life long learners to step into this possibility with us.

The Wisdom School in Teotihuacán
We are an Earth First graduate school

Each year The Wisdom School with The Pyramid Academy immerses itself in the ancient wisdom of the Toltec civilization of Teotihuán, Mexico during the week around Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Here is how some of the participants describe their experience:

“There are no words to describe the magical moments and educational value derived from our Teo experience but I will try! Just imagine being engulfed with the color of indigenous Toltec art, the grandeur of ancient pyramids, the wisdom from extraordinary teachers, the hospitality of the open-hearted Mexican peoples, and the beautiful bonding experience in love and friendship between wonderful human beings, and you will understand what the Teo experience was like for all of us! Extraordinarily invigorating, soul stirring, and spirit soaring once in a lifetime experience!”

—Constantina Clark, Ph.D. student

“Returning, remembering, releasing, renewing, these are words that come to me regarding my journey in community with the Pyramid Academy at Teotihuacan.”

—Deborah Doblado Bowers, D.Min. student

“A beautiful week of sacred intimacy within the safest circle of guidance and love.”

—Karen Smith, new D.Min. student

“A wonderful time with a tribe of awakened, loving beings in a sacred place full of mystery and radiant energy.

—Teresa Echaide, life-long learner
