PNEUMA, the Greek term for Spirit which evokes an eternal and unnameable knowledge, is what will always inspire our service to community. Our intention is for Spirit to always be present in each of our actions.
Pneuma is the path of knowledge. Pneuma means Spirit or breath in Ancient Greek. Within The Pneuma System the philosophy of all eras is synthised. It is the origin and the goal of inner psychological and spiritual education which leads individuals and communities to absolute happiness. It offers a complete, multidisciplinary education for the cultivation of consciousness and inner knowledge through our academic, artistic and spiritual programs.
Pneuma offers over 30 years of experience in human development with a team of professionals in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, medicine, philosophy, education, fine arts, sciences, and spirituality.
Its focus is on the experience of the transpersonal and the development of human potential.

PNEUMA RETREAT CENTER
Pneuma Retreat Centre is located on the Pneuma Institute’s campus in Mount Shasta California in the US.
Here a great variety of multidisciplinary programs are hosted or organized throughout the year, and both academic and intercultural meetings are celebrated.
The mountains, rivers, lakes, and forests surrounding these facilities provide a unique space in which to immerse oneself in meditation, inner work and transpersonal experiences.
The Foundation’s mission is to develop peace, coexistence, freedom and compassion through solidarity projects.
All donations help build educational programs, give conferences, provide academic bursaries and scholarships, improve facilities and support ancient spiritual traditions. Our projects include:
Pneuma Breathwork is a revolutionary, deep and easy practice that gives natural access to extraordinary or transpersonal states of consciousness. These states allow for the exploration of the more subtle and refined inner dimensions of the psyche.
The objective of Pneuma Breathwork is to open our perception to the deeper unknown contents of our psyche in order to make contact with our spiritual essence, with inner peace, and to gradually heal our lives.
