The Arica School was founded in 1968 by Oscar Ichazo as a School of Wisdom and Knowledge. This type of school has been in existence since ancient times, from the Greek philosophical schools to the schools of the Hindu, Buddhist and Sufi traditions. As in all schools of knowledge, the Arica School offers a complete method of enlightenment. What makes the Arica School different from the ancient schools is that it provides a contemporary method of enlightenment, employing biology, psychology and physics in order to clarify the human process with modern knowledge, for the attainment of freedom and liberation.
The clarification process that the Arica School teaches, called the “Protoanalytical Theory™, System and Method,” was originated by Oscar Ichazo. Protoanalysis® is the analysis of the complete human being, from the lowest aspects of the human process, progressing systematically to the Higher States of Mind in which enlightenment can be attained.
The Arica School provides a clearly defined map of the human psyche in order that each of us can discover the basis of our ego process and transcend this process into the Higher States of Mind, which are found in and available to each of us. This ‘state of being’ is our True Essential Self, experienced as an internal state of great happiness, Light and liberation.
The trainings in the Line of the School are organized according to the five Realms of Existence and Knowledge (Vital, Social, Emotional–Moral, Mental, Spiritual) and the Transcendental State, all of which are original to the Arica® System and are common to every human being. The content of each training has been specifically designed to produce proficiency in that level of Knowledge, enabling one to advance and embody the entire System and Method, in the order that one chooses.
When the mind is stabilized through perspective, understanding and self-observation, meditations are practiced to transcend our everyday experiences into the Higher States of Mind in which enlightenment and real freedom can be attained. In summary, we can say that the Arica School is a School of Wisdom and Knowledge that presents a contemporary method for the clarification of the human process into States of Enlightenment (Theosis) and true liberation.
