Samuel A. Malkemus


Is a professor of clinical psychology and consciousness studies. 

He teaches graduate courses in the San Francisco

Bay Area, California, and has a private practice in holistic counseling. The core of his vision is founded upon a holistic understanding of human health that is grounded in the rhythms of nature and the wisdom of the body. 

A fifth generation Californian who divides his time between California and Spain, he leads courses and seminars in holistic sexuality and transformative education both internationally and in the San Francisco bay area where he lives with his wife and two sons. 

He is committed to participating in a renewal of culture through a decolonial praxis that facilitates vibrant health 

by working with all of who we are as human beings,

 our lights and shadows, our wholeness and our brokenness, 

inviting the wisdom of body, vital, heart, mind, and spirit.
