Ryokan Poem

The gaudy beauty of this world has no attraction for me My closest friends are mountains and rivers, Clouds swallow up my shadow as I walk along, When I sit on cliffs, birds soar overhead. Wearing snow straw sandals, I visit cold villages. Go as deep as you can into life, And you will be […]


Is Pedophilia treatable or is it a lost cause?

By Ryokan College on Friday, January 6th, 2012 in Hot Topics, Student/Faculty Issues. No Comments

Pedophilia is one of the more disturbing issues that psychologists may come in contact with during their years in practice. Pedophiles can be unusually difficult to have on a therapist’s couch due to the strong aversion one may feel towards them; the development of a sexual attraction and preference for children is seriously taboo in […]

Ryokan Poem

The plants and flowers I raise about my hut I now surrender To the will of the wind. The flower invites the butterfly with no-mind;                                  The butterfly visits the flower with no-mind. The flower opens, the butterfly comes;  I don’t know others, Others don’t know me. By not-knowing we follow nature’s course.

"I chose Ryokan because it was convenient, flexible and affordable. I still work, have a family, take care of my aged mom, own a home, etc. The online classes work best for my busy lifestyle. Without their flexibility, I would not pursue this."

Bob Kennedy, MS, MFT (current doctoral student)

"I had attended two California State Universities and received a Master’s Degree from each before attending Ryokan College to acquire my doctorate in Clinical psychology. My second Master’s Degree was from California State University at Dominguez Hills—the program was completely online and there was virtually no difference in the quality of education I received from an accredited California state university and Ryokan college."

Dr. Jann Blackstone-Ford

"My experience at Ryokan from the initial interview through graduation was one of encouragement, motivation and compassion. I have referred others to Ryokan without hesitation knowing first hand that the school is always a part of my mind and I will always be grateful to Ryokan for giving me that chance."
