Paul M. Helfrich

PAUL M. HELFRICH, Ph.D., has spent the past four decades exploring multidisciplinary approaches as an educator, composer, scholar, author, and lecturer. He earned his undergraduate degree from the Pennsylvania State University (1978) and graduate degrees in music composition from Temple University (1980, 1985), where he composed classical music and taught music theory, history, and composition.

His love of science and technology led him to Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute Science Museum, where he developed major hands-on state-of-the-art science exhibits including What Makes Music? (1987), visited by over two million people in the U.S. and Canada. He spearheaded the formation of The Science Learning Network (1994), a national testbed that promoted distance learning via hands-on science resources among leading science museums and K-8 schools worldwide.

His Mindscapes music CD (2003) is available on iTunes, Rhapsody, and Spotify.

His interest in Integral Psychology led him to earn a Level III Spiral Dynamics Integral certification (2003) and Integral Certificate from Fielding Graduate University (2007).

Helfrich has authored essays, presented workshops, and lectured nationally on the Seth Material, the channeling phenomenon, and Integral Psychology.

He became a Waldorf Class Teacher (2012), completed Waldorf Teacher Training (2013) and graduated the Class of 2020 at the Westside Waldorf School in Pacific Palisades, CA. He is currently a Lead Class & Music Teacher and Board Trustee for the 2023-2024 academic year, a member of the Anthroposophical Society in America, and the First Class of the School of Spiritual Science.

He belongs to and financially supports the following organizations:

Association of Waldorf Schools of North America
American Waldorf Music Educators
