Personal Statement

When Claudia Turnbull’s children were grown, she decided to learn more about a meditation practice stemming from Vedic teachings she had been following for thirty years. She needed either a low-residency or a distance learning program that would allow her to study wherever she was. She chose Goddard’s low-residency MA in Individualized Studies degree program, where she explored concepts of consciousness within Indian philosophy and wrote A Spiritual Memoir for her thesis.
