“IDSVA has helped to propel my career forward by providing me a solid philosophical foundation, amazing networking opportunities, and the experience of completing a difficult and extended project. With this prowess in tow, I have been able to pursue new teaching, publishing, and artistic opportunities that would not have been possible before my time at IDSVA.”
Dr. Gregory Blair
“My experience with IDSVA is one that is larger than words. It has been an all-encompassing, full-bodied, full-minded experience. It has taken me beyond anything I thought I could do as a human being.”
Dr. Kalia Brooks
“My studies at IDSVA have opened up vast territories of ideas--not only things I didn't know before, but most importantly those I did not know I didn't know about. This has led not only to an expanded richness of experience, but has also opened up such comparatively prosaic and practical options like adding an active publishing and conference component to my life as an artist, thinker, and creator.”
“IDSVA’s demand for endurance, heart, and innovation allowed my sense of agency to blossom and prepared me to enter new realms of contemporary aesthetic and spiritual inquiry.”
Dr. Amy Cook
