As a graduate from Harvard, Frager had experienced first-hand the conventional approach to the study of psychology and found it to be lacking and often fragmented. Sofia University has built itself on a foundation of transformative, transpersonal education since 1975. Sofia has changed and grown in its own time as a university and encourages its students to do the same.

Sofia University is accredited by the nation’s premier regional accreditation body for higher education, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) in 1998. Through its rigorous review process, WASC confirms that Sofia University possesses the resources, policies, and practices to achieve its educational goals and shows a dedication to the improvement and accountability of its programs.

The University of Healing confers theological degrees upon its graduates.


The Unity movement was founded by Charles and Myrtle Fillmore in 1889 as a healing ministry based on the power of prayer and the power of our thoughts to create our own reality. The Fillmores regarded Jesus as the great example rather than the great exception; interpreted the Bible metaphysically; and taught that God is present within all of us.

Spiritual seekers often say that finding Unity is like coming home. Unity is an open-minded, accepting spiritual community that honors all paths to God and helps people discover and live their spiritual potential and purpose. A positive alternative to negative religion, Unity seeks to apply the teachings of Jesus as well as other spiritual masters. Unity affirms the power of prayer and helps people experience a stronger connection with God every day.

Johnnie Colemon Theological Seminary

The Johnnie Colemon Theological Seminary is named in honor of a pioneer in the religious arena.  She has set the stage by her life and ministry for an innovative approach to preparing men and women to minister effectively in today's world.  Those of us who share in her vision are convinced that we cannot continue to "do" church in the same ways that we have in the past.  However, to do it differently, we must train leaders who are risk takers and trendsetters.  These are people who are able to think outside of the box.

Centers for Spiritual Living

Based in Golden, Colorado, Centers for Spiritual Living  is a global community comprised of more than 400 spiritual communities, teaching chapters, study groups and other ministries in 30 countries. These communities teach a New Thought philosophy that brings religion and science together and offers spiritual tools to transform personal lives and help make the world a better place. This is done through the study and practice of Science of Mind and Spirit, also known as Religious Science, which holds that all life is sacred—that each human being is an expression of God. We believe in Cause and Effect and teach that “it is done unto you as you believe.” In essence, our thinking and expectations create our reality. Our teachings incorporate the ancient wisdom of spiritual traditions through the ages. People of all spiritual paths — Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, and others — are welcome in our communities. We help people experience a personal relationship with the creator; promote a community of tolerance, understanding and respect; provide classes, programs, prayer and meditation; and advocate a safe spiritual community of like-minded people interested in living a spiritual life.
