About Dr. Boyer

Dr. Robert BoyerBorn in Portland Oregon USA, Bob spent early years in California, attended UCLA on an athletic scholarship and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. After graduation he became a teacher of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program, and completed a Master’s degree in the Science of Creative Intelligence at Maharishi European Research University in Switzerland. He served in the non-profit educational organization for TM in the U.S. as national president of the students’ wing and national vice-president-administration and trustee of the umbrella organization, having the great honor of working with founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
He returned to academic studies, completing a Master’s degree in experimental psychology at California State University Northridge and doctorate in cognitive psychology at University of Oklahoma. He served as faculty member in psychology and neuroscience at Maharishi International University in Iowa, and after completing postdoctoral clinical internships and professional licensure worked in community mental health and private practice.
In recent years he developed graduate curricula and taught as full professor of psychology at Girne American University in North Cyprus, and again has been writing scientific papers and now publishing books. He and his wife Connie also operate a bed & breakfast in Fairfield Iowa, Seven Roses Inn (
His professional career and private life have consistently focused on development of consciousness, and on communication. It can be characterized simply as a series of phases: boy, athlete, administrator, teacher, clinician, author—and all along the way a listener and increasingly silent observer of the joys and challenges of life on Earth.
