About Sandra

Sandra-101Thumb SANDRA LEE DENNIS, PhD, is an author, teacher and explorer of the interplay of depth psychology and spirituality. She holds an MA in Psychology from the University of Michigan and a PhD in Integral Studies/ Psychology and Religion from The California Institute of Integral Studies. She has been on the faculty of six universities, as well as the San Francisco Jung Institute.

Sandra’s writings have emerged from immersion and inquiry into the depths of inner life.  Her work bridges the world of scholar and visionary. She loves to bring light to the shadowlands—those subtle interior spheres that defy description and can appear frightening, painful, or unreal to the logical mind.  Her deep-diving explorations and research have helped others to name and to bring compassion to their brokenness, confusion and pain.

She was a teacher in the Gurdjieff tradition for many years, an Ananda Yoga instructor, and a long-time student of the Diamond Heart work.  Currently, she is enjoying life in the Bay Area. With her daughter nearby, she spends time in her garden, sitting on park benches, attending local dance events and roaming the north coast beaches watching for another perfect sunset.
