HISTORY of Teleos Institute

Teleos Institute

was originally founded in California under the name "The Foundation for Religious Transition" in Santa Barbara, California. In 1969 the name was changed to "The Bishop Pike Foundation" to honor its first President, Bishop James A. Pike. In 1972 the offices of the foundation were moved to San Diego, California and the name was changed to "The Love Project." In 1988 the name was changed again to "Teleos Institute." In 1993 the offices were moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, where they remain today.



is a Greek word pointing to the invisible plan that gives order to Cosmos. Teleos is the overall design or purpose directing nature toward her fulfillment. Teleos is the pattern hidden within each human being that guides the individualizing process. Teleos is the archetypal paradigm that resonates within us as human beings, prompting us to aspire to realize our full potential.

Since Teleos is imprinted in each of us, we turn within for guidance and direction and then move outward to give expression to our unique and essential participation in the whole.
