“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” – CG Jung
Spirituality is the ultimate path to self-transformation. As spiritual practitioners, we are naturally interested in peeling back the layers of our conditioning to see what lies beneath. Unfortunately, traditional spiritual practice, especially in the traditions of the East, often does not address the psychological issues and emotional wounding of the modern Western mind. Many people benefit from a psychotherapeutic approach to working with personal issues that arise while engaging in spiritual practice.
In order to integrate the transformation involved in spiritual development, it is important to have a sound and stable identity. When we have this stable identity, we have a fertile ground for the seeds of spiritual practice to develop. Therapeutic support can help with this stability. The more we understand our depths the deeper we can go.
If you are noticing emotional issues arising or places where you feel “stuck” in your spiritual practice, I would love to work with you. I also love to work with people who are having issues related to spiritual emergence and mystical experience. You can integrate your spiritual experiences into your modern life and create a stable ground for spiritual attainment.
“Suddenly we are willing to surrender. We may see the end of one way of life, and be ready to take a step we were previously fearful of. Once taken, there may be no turning back. There may be, however, a great sense of relief, as we can then embark upon what is truly meaningful in our lives.” – Rob Preece
