University of the Trees
University of the Trees
An experimental New Age school community for world change through consciousness research and related spiritual development. The main thrust of teaching was directed towards self-discovery and creative individual change, and in addition to community life courses, teaching was also maintained through correspondence with students all over the world. Courses were wide-ranging, including art, literature, environmental studies, changing, transpersonal awareness, alternative energy systems, health and yoga, healing, history and neurology of consciousness, philosophy, mysticism, radiational physics, and what is termed "supersensonics" (which includes radiesthesia, dowsing, pyramid research, and psychotronics).
The university granted degrees in consciousness research, but aimed to provide students with methods of study that deepen their inner awareness. The term "the Trees" denoted the nerve dendrites in the brain, and the "Tree of Life" of the nervous system that can combine with knowledge to enhance direct perception of truth.
The community was founded in 1973 and grew out of the teachings of Christopher Hills, a New Age teacher, researcher, and yogi who directs the work of the university. Associated with the university is a Research Institute for Supersensonic Healing Energies. Last known address: P.O. Box 644, 13151 Pine St., Boulder Creek, CA 95006.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
