Gregory T. Hitter, PhD, in addition to having pursued a formal study of perennial wisdom, mysticism, and consciousness studies, holds several celebrated credentials for outstanding achievement in both postmodern science and depth psychology. As an undergraduate studying toward a Bachelor of Science in Physics and Mathematics, which included a study of quantum physics and nonlinear dynamics (Chaos & Complexity Theory), Dr. Hitter received numerous awards for academic and creative excellence at the State University in Bemidji, Minnesota, graduating Summa Cum Laude. The awards included The Outstanding Senior in Physics Award, The Argonne Scholar Award, and The Outstanding Student Paper/Work of Creativity Award, as well as formal recognition as an Outstanding Student in Mathematics.

Along with considerable clinical practice in psychodynamic psychotherapy, Dr. Hitter holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Clinical Psychology from the California Graduate Institute in Los Angeles, where he continued a study of psychoanalytic, Jungian, and general psychology that began while obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Gustavus Adolphus College (St. Peter, Minnesota). At his doctoral graduation ceremonies (1995), Dr. Hitter was granted The Josephine Bernstein Research Award for The Best Theoretical Dissertation of the Year, for a paper on the nonlinear, Chaotic nature of the psyche, which coupled the new postmodern sciences with perennial wisdom in implementing an expanded postmodern Metaphysics of the Self. The dissertation, which provides the basis for his book entitled Freud's Innuendo and Jamshid's Cup: The Postmodern Quest for Self in the Shadow of the Newtonian World, received an unprecedented review from the faculty of the California Graduate Institute, where Dr. Hitter teaches courses from time to time on the metaphysics of psychology and consciousness.

Since 1995, Dr. Hitter has been traveling in the United States, Europe, and Asia, lecturing to scientific and medical groups, writing, and focusing on his professional development. Part of this has included the development of a new modality aimed at healing states of consciousness, which involves a wider, more nonlinear postmodern view than that typically understood by mechanistic psychology (explored in the aforementioned book), and which involves the implementation of techniques effecting and uniting the deep infrastructure of consciousness and its energy – a more profoundly causal level of the psyche than the behavior, thought, imagery, and emotion that typically form the focus of modern psychotherapy. Dr. Hitter is currently publishing editor of the newsletter SelfQuest™ and offers seminars in the US and Europe on postmodern healing paradigms, as well as training and private sessions in the SelfQuesting Approach.
