John Lee Howie was born in Nashville, Tenn.,. His parents moved to Huntsville, Ala., where he grew up with seven brothers and sisters. His parents were active in the Civil Rights movement of the early 1960’s and introduced him to a strong sense of civic and social responsibility. Howie graduated from Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania, where the mission of the school is to “help students realize their full intellectual and personal potential combined with a deep sense of ethical and social concern.” This is one of the guiding principles to Howie’s teaching style towards his own students.

After receiving his undergraduate degree, Howie studied a couple of summers at the Naropa Institute of Buddhist Studies, now the University of Naropa, in Boulder, Colo. He then spent a year in Germany and Switzerland, learning German at the Goethe Institute and then studying at the Jung Institute in Zurich. He completed both his master's and doctoral degrees in archetypal and phenomenological psychology at the University of Dallas where he studied under James Hillman, a prolific writer who founded the field of archetypal psychology.

Howie has spent his lifetime traveling and studying abroad, beginning as a teenager, when he traveled with his family to Bolivia. In high school he was an exchange student in India with AFS. As a young man he traveled widely in South America, Mexico and Europe. As a result of the total immersion experience of living in different cultures, he became more or less proficient in several languages, including Spanish, German, French and Portuguese.

In 1991, Howie began teaching at what was then Pikeville College in Kentucky as an assistant professor. He is now coordinator of the psychology program and a professor of psychology at the University of Pikeville. He is a Salzburg Fellow from the Salzburg Institute in Austria. He has been on several trips abroad to foster this internationalization of education, both on his own campus as well as in the Appalachian College Association (ACA), including travel to Austria, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, Japan and Peru. He has taught in Japan with KIIS, as well as in Peru at the Cusco campus of USIL, Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola. He remains committed to the idea of the globalization of students in the attempt to both empower students and to show them the relationships between themselves and the rest of the world. He feels that the knowledge of other cultures is key to a deeper understanding of the unique culture of the Appalachia, whence come the majority of his students. As they learn the similarities between their own cultures and others, while appreciating what make each one unique, the students are enriched with deeper appreciation for their own roots and home place as well as the world.

Howie has always taught psychology from an archetypal perspective, which allows him to include mythology, philosophy, religion, Japanese gardens, films, popular culture and cross-cultural as well as transpersonal psychology in his courses. He has taught a seminar on dreams for the last 22 years, as well as courses on shamanism and the psychology of religion. Most recently, his interest has turned towards ecopsychology, a course which he has taught both in Appalachia and the Andes. Highlanders everywhere have very similar issues with the unsustainable exploitation of both their natural and their human resources. He first noticed this correlation in Guatemala with the Mayans, and it was further corroborated by his studies of the Incas in the Andes. The Incan cosmovision of how to treat the earth, Pachamama, with both respect and in the spirit of reciprocity, is a notion whose time has come. Indigenous peoples everywhere have always known this. Only now are we beginning to realize that we must recollect what we have always known if we and our brethren sentient beings are to survive.

Professor Kilgore-Bowling was born and raised right here in Pike County, Kentucky. As a first generation college student and daughter of a coal miner, she was determined to seek an education in a field that would allow her to give back to the Appalachian community that had given so much to her. This determination led her to spend her college days at Pikeville and to receive a master’s degree in social work from the University of Kentucky. Shortly after completing her MSW, Professor Kilgore-Bowling began her teaching career as an adjunct for the UK College of Social Work. This prompted her to enroll in doctoral classes at UK to further develop her teaching and research skills. She joined the Pikeville College faculty in the fall of 2006 as an interim instructor in the psychology department. During that time, she was instrumental in establishing the social work major at the University of Pikeville and was appointed as the first director of the social work program in 2007. In addition to her teaching and program administrative duties, Professor Kilgore-Bowling enjoys sponsoring and co-sponsoring student groups. She is also very active within the community and is a member of the board of directors of several nonprofit agencies within the service area.

If she isn’t at work at the college or working somewhere in the community, then it is likely that you will find her trying to keep up with her young son, Elathan or at the local Artist Collaborative Theatre with which her family is very active. Professor Kilgore-Bowling also enjoys traveling, reading, all genres of music, watching movies, and spending time with her extended family and friends. However, her absolute favorite thing to do is to spend a quiet evening at home with Elathan and her husband, Terry.
