Michael J. Lincoln (FKA Narayan-Singh Khalsa) earned his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University of Oregon, including several years teaching, research assisting and working at mental hospitals, a counseling center, a mental health clinic, and the institution for the retarded. He then started out as the clinical director of one of the first behavior modification treatment programs for emotionally disturbed children. He pioneered the successful healing of deep emotional wounds in both children and their families through the integration of behavioral and psychoanalytic approaches. He went on to serve in this role in several other innovative treatment programs for children and adolescents over a thirty year span.
Meanwhile, along the way, he opened and ran a night club for teenagers during the late sixties. He also co-ran a series of large inter-racial and intergenerational encounter groups for high school teachers, administrators and students. In addition, he developed a heart-centered face-reading process based upon modern psychological assessment approaches. He also was a consultant for programs for alcoholics, drug dependents, juvenile and adult corrections, and the department of children's services. In addition, he functioned as a forensic psychologist for these populations. Along with all this clinical work, he served as a professor of psychology at the University of Portland ( Oregon ) for several years, where he trained people in professional clinical psychology, conducted research, and taught at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. In addition, he trained child care practitioners in professional child/youth work in an accreditation program of his own design for some twenty years.
As all of this was happening, there began to develop a growing spiritual awareness and commitment. This led to his integrating the sacred into his contributions, and he evolved into a Psycho-Sacred Teacher and Healer, which he has been for over 20 years now.
Lincoln 's mission is to teach, heal and inspire through the elevation and transformation of the consciousness of those he impacts, as we collectively enter into the Heart Chakra at Human Soul Collective level.
