Toni Goertz Introducing PSI
The first Training Centre of the Psycho-Spiritual Institute is located at the Marist International University in the Karen area of Nairobi, Kenya.
Admission is open to candidates with a minimum of First Degree in the Psychological Sciences. Candidates with no background in Psychology, but with a good degree in any of the Sacred or Social Sciences may however be considered for admission - with the understanding that in the course of the two year programme, they will pay for and undergo each Summer time a six weeks’ “Bridging Course” that has been designed to make up for the shortfall.
PSI provides for two broad categories of students: Residential and Non-Residential. The former refers to in-campus students who pay for tuition as well as room and board, while the latter refers to off-campus students who find themselves their own accommodation within Nairobi and pay only tuition fees and other minor charges. This is however very stressful for the candidates as the course is designed to be full-time, and fully engaging!
Recently, the Marists Brothers came together in Karen, Nairobi to celebrate from many parts of the world. Marists students presented cultural displays to emphasize their diversity and unity of purpose. Various individuals, groups and institutions who partner with them were on hand to celebrate with the Brothers. Amongst the institutions is PSI. In recognition of the partnership, a symbolic gesture of tree planting marked the day, a sacred joyful work of re-creation, life, growth, unity of purpose that is heaven-bound.
