PsychoSpirituality openly includes the traditional western focus of developing an empowered individuated self with complex needs, while deeply recognizing there is an undifferentiated loving Consciousness that is our essential self.
Directly knowing Consciousness - as our shared undifferentiated being - makes the work of psychotherapy much more effective and sustainable. Ultimately, nonduality and psychotherapy are symbiotic paths - Consciousness loves to individuate and separation loves to realize its oneness.

This short compilation of spiritual teachers and philosophers speaking about Consciousness gives a sense of what I mean by Nonduality.
Many of my closest family, friends, mentors, counselors and spiritual teachers are members of the LGBTQ+ community. To me, authenticity at every level is essential to happiness and freedom. I've had the opportunity to help friends in this community make peace with the past, release unsupportive relationships, and become empowered to embody authenticity.
