in the great questions of our time. Located on the campuses of Pacifica Graduate
Institute in Santa Barbara, California, OPUS is a dynamic center for the

their place on the world platform especially as they inform the areas of social
justice and environmental sustainability.

interdisciplinary dialogues, community networks, internet forums, and creative

that, in Joseph Campbell's words, provides a "secret opening through which the
inexhaustible energies of the cosmos pour into human cultural manifestation".
