Our thinking is enclosed by a wall built of our own views of the world, and we're unable to see past it. New therapies merely re-shuffle these old paradigm views. As such, healing what conventional therapies have failed to heal is NOT about seeing what hasn't been seen before, but about thinking what hasn't been taught before about illnesses we have seen all along.

Dr. Deepak Chopra and Gerald Whitehawk, founder of Esotherapy® at the
2015 international Science & Non-duality Conference, hosted by Dr Chopra.
Consciousness is NOT something "we have", but something we ARE.
~ Dr. Deepak Chopra, MD
This means illness and well-being pertain to consciousness.
Consciousness is the foundation or "operating system" of mind & body functions. Their illnesses arise from divided or dualistic consciousness, while well-being arises from integrated or non-dualistic consciousness. As such, sustainable therapy must integrate consciousness.
True therapy heals BOTH mind & body by integrating consciousness. Since we are consciousness, healing, defined as "making whole", is making the learned, divided or "dualistic" consciousness whole, integrated or "non-dualistic", returning it to its innate, original blueprint. This clears both of the mind and body manifestations of dualistic consciousness, believed to be separate - mental or physical - "diseases". This esoteric wisdom approach, called Esotherapy®, heals mind and body...
... even when every other therapy has failed.
Esotherapy® is a paradigm-shift from philosophers' knowledge to the wisdom of sages
The world is one, but words are separate. As we learn to perceive the world through words, in the place of oneness, we see a world of divided & separate entities. This verbal consciousness, called "dualistic", embodies a "spirit of separation".
Since consciousness is not something we have, but something we ARE, this new, divisive/dualistic consciousness becomes a separate self-identity. It disintegrates mental, physical and social functions. We think of our many human sicknesses as different... yet they are merely different embodiments of divided, dualistic consciousness. This is important because integrating consciousness - which is what we are - heals the illnesses arising from it's division.
"Healing", defined as "to make whole", is, thus, to make consciousness integrated, non-dualistic, whole-ly or... "holy". True therapy & spirituality are one, a healing ministry.
Esotherapy® is a "whole-ly" / "holy" wisdom based ministry for integrating consciousness by processing traumatic or stressful life-events through Higher Consciousness non-dualistic or esoteric wisdom. This integrates one's direct, personal experience of being, which has sweeping emotional & physiological healing effects.
Dualistic consciousness, with its spirit of division, pertains to the ego-self. It sees a world composed of divided & separate entities functioning independently and competing for resources. Its divisive awareness & thinking generates abiding conflicts & stress, and is the source of all ills.
Non-dualistic ("undivided", "whole") or Higher Consciousness, is noted for its Spirit of Integration. It sees people & things as temporary manifestations of a single, enduring, ubiquitous Substance or Essence. Only the everlasting Essence is important, its fleeting forms are not.
Ontological beliefs - root beliefs about the nature of reality that we use to make sense of personal, subjective experiences, or "phenomena".

"When I first met Gerald, I
"Ihad what's called an adrenal
was 'frozen.' I had spent the previous four months in a state of 90% paralysis, and that's only the physical aspect of it all. I was traumatized to the point that fear had suppressed many aspects that make me who I am and in its wake, all that was left was mainly basic instincts...
Now, two months later, and I'm looking at graduate level programs in physics and medicine… Not only have I regained all of my physical ability and more -- I have gained my freedom!
Esotherapy is so much more than any therapy I've ever tried... and I've tried them all! For nine years, I have tried Talk Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Trauma Therapy, Family Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, Somatic Emotional Release, Somatic Emotional Touch... all of these at the best Western medicine centers, like the Mayo Clinic and Cedars-Sinai [in West Hollywood, CA].
Gerald put his heart into it. He worked with me gently, diligently and guided me to a path of empowering myself.
I have been through a lot of therapy before... yet, nothing else could ever come close to the transformation I have seen in myself since starting Esotherapy.
In many ways, I did not change. I am not different. Instead, I am, now, me. I am, now, able to uncover the layers that shroud my spirit, and continually work to be free. I am at peace with who I am... I have found harmony and serenity. More than that, I have found acceptance of myself… I have found and nurtured a home for myself within myself, and I know how to return to its safety.
Gerald has worked with me based on who I truly am and he set my spirit free!!! I never could have imagined this. He didn't only help me recover, or get my old life back! Now, I have the power and belief in myself to cultivate a life that goes far beyond what I could have imagined.
I went from not being able to lift my head up on my own, to dancing along my life path with wonder and excitement. I will be forever grateful and inspired."

insufficiency, or Addison’s disease. Essentially, my adrenal glands put out so much adrenaline that they ran out of cortisol. It feels like having the worst panic attack I’ve ever experienced, 100% of the time. The only treatment conventional medicine has for it is steroids -- hydrocortisone, in particular.
An adrenal insufficiency is something you can recover from, but it can also be deadly. In the three months before I met Gerald, I had been hospitalized at least 4 times and averaged about 2 ambulance rides per week. Doctors couldn’t figure out why my body was eating up all of the cortisol -- my adrenal glands should have recovered by that time, yet I continued to have adrenaline surges and crashes. The crashes were terrifying, and they’re the part that can be fatal.
I met Gerald while I was in Addison’s crisis, which is when your cortisol is dangerously low. I hadn’t been able to take steroids in over 24 hours, which meant that I’d spent the past day in a state of terror, yet almost unable to move or talk. When someone is in Addison’s crisis, the standard treatment is what’s called a “stress dose” of steroids -- the minimum starting dose was five times my normal daily dosage. It’s drastic, but I’ve never before heard of someone not needing it. Usually, you either get a stress dose, or an ambulance ride to an ER who will give you a stress dose. Fun stuff, right?
The first time I met with Gerald was about an hour after I had finally been able to take a dosage of steroids that was even less than my normal dosage. Normally, that would have meant that I had staved off an ambulance ride for about an hour.
I left my meeting with Gerald laughing, and walking! I can’t explain it, but I don’t need to explain it to know the facts. Before I met with him, it was all I could do to sit upright in a chair without collapsing. Afterwards, not only was I in better physical condition than I had been in many months, I also didn’t even end up needing a stress dose for two weeks!! Two weeks!! That was far longer than I had gone without extra steroids for the entire time I had had an adrenal insufficiency.
I can now say that just two months later, I was able to go off of the steroids completely. My doctors were amazed -- my adrenal glands were functioning perfectly, far better than the average."

Why Esotherapy® Can Heal, Even When Every Other Therapy Has Failed
The word "holy" in "Holy Spirit" is related to "whole", meaning "whole-ly". Similarly, "healing" is often defined as "to make whole", undivided, "non-dualistic" or integrated. Hence, healing is to make consciousness non-dualistic, and is the "Holy (Whole-ly) Spirit" within.
Processing trauma and other stressful life-events through non-dualistic/ holy/"whole-ly"/divine wisdom restores consciousness from its learned, divided or dualistic state to its inborn, non-dualistic or whole-ly/"Holy" Spirit", which heals illnesses.
Whether divided or integrated consciousness is who we ARE (not something we have):
integrated, non-dualistic, or "Holy" wisdom heals
sickness arises from divided, dualistic consciousness.
* We use the terms "non-dualistic" & "Higher Consciousness", rather than "Holy Spirit", because the latter became too politicized and misunderstood to understand its true, original meaning.
The Healing Outlook of Esotherapy®
Quantum Physics tells us that the atom, is 99.99999% empty. This means your illness is 99.99999% empty, as well. That means, it is changeable.
"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real."
- Niels Bohr, Nobel Prize in Physics winner
"There is a language beyond human language, an elemental language, one that arises from the land itself."
- Linda Hogan, Chickasaw writer
Humans are but a microcosm of nature, hence, wisdom reflected in the non-dualistic, integral balance of the 99.99999% "empty" nature must be the foundation of true therapy.
As Rumi said, "The lamps are different, but the light is the same." Esotherapy is based on Higher Consciousness wisdom obtained through meditation and contemplation for each specific case. Although singularly inspired, other mouthpieces of the same Source, from cultures the world over, have voiced similar healing principles to Esotherapy:
"... wisdom... from above is... without"
"I come from that which is integrated [Holy/Whole-ly Spirit]... a person once...
integrated will become full of light...
divided will be filled with darkness."
Esoteric healing wisdom
"God is... one[-ness, integration["
"Dualistic thinking is a sickness"
“… even ONE such [non-dualistic, undivided, peak] experience might be able to prevent suicide… self-destruction, … 'existential meaninglessness', states of valuelessness, etc…”s
... always,, dichotomizing [or dividing] pathologizes”
- Abraham Maslow, Father of Humanistic Psychology, Religions, Values, & Peak Experiences
About Our Esotherapy® Sessions
Esotherapy® provides a gentle, supportive environment within which basic world-views we use to make sense of reality are gently revealed, diligently explored and integrated. Known as "ontological assumptions", these fundamental views of what the world is are the backdrop of our thinking, emotions and body processes, as well. Esotherapy sessions consist of a unique amalgam of healing touch and talk, meditation, contemplation and ceremony that switch consciousness from a divided, ego-centered worldview to a holistic, integrated, spiritual state. This shift heals inner wounding and changes how we experience present & future events, and, thereby, reduces"fight or flight", stress hormones that cause tissue inflammation, damage blood vessels & the heart, and weaken immune response, the backdrop of all killer diseases.
Internet or phone therapy can be as effective as face-to-face
We've helped people from Australia, New Zealand, Caribbean Islands, South America, Hawaii, United States, Europe, Middle East, and Canada in the comfort of their own homes. If you live in Southern Arizona, a few face-to-face sessions could be the simplest way to begin your work.

Gerald is an ordained minister (reverend) and highest honors (suma cum laude) Psychology and Philosophy of Religion graduate of UC Davis, one of the top 15 schools in the world. Even as an undergraduate he was commended by the Director of American Psychological Association , Dr. Emil Rodolfa, for doing pioneering post-doctoral work at undergraduate level and creating a new template for psychological research.
Gerald realized that psychology is based on dualistic thinking, which is the source of the problems it is trying to remedy. Thus, he founded Esotherapy® to be what psych-ology had, originally, set out to be... but, failed to achieve. The Greek word "psych" means "soul" or "spirit" and "-ology" means "knowledge of" or "science". Thus, psychology was meant to be a science of the spirit. Esotherapy® is the spiritual ministry psychology was meant to be... and a WHOLE LOT MORE.
Unlike psychology, psychotherapy and psychiatry, which are based on conventional, dualistic thinking, Esotherapy® is founded on non-dualistic or esoteric wisdom, which is NOT rooted in any external system of thinking, but in non-denominational, HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS guidance for each specific case. This wisdom is obtained DIRECTLY, through meditation & contemplation.*
(see *NOTE, below)
Your Chances For Healing Are Not Only Greater than You Imagine...
They are Greater Than You CAN Imagine
"Why Haven't I Healed After All The Doctors and Therapists I've Seen, So Far?"
To understand this, consider a case recorded by the American Psychiatric Association, that of an eight year old girl who, after receiving a heart transplant from a murdered 11-year-old girl, began to experience detailed nightmares of how and where her donor was murdered and who committed the murder.
Neurotransmitters, such as "epinephrine", found in our brains, are also found in our hearts and are carried through the bloodstream to all our cells where they become hardwired into our cellular blueprint.
Your body is your subconscious mind.
Memories and feelings can be stored NON-VERBALLY in every cell of our bodies as if they were on a “bio-computer”. These distributed, cellular memories act like computer viruses causing repetitive re-experiencing of negative emotions, as well as bad choices & behaviours that damage our minds, bodies & interpersonal relationships. This is the reason for our inability to heal trauma and change attitudes that puzzle us by the lack of control we have over them.
Non-verbal memories cannot be changed through verbal therapies alone. Being distributed throughout our cells, these body memories are better understood as ENERGIES. Clearing them through Esotherapy®, removes their programming, regardless wherever they are stored throughout our physical being.
What Makes Esotherapy® So Different From Other Therapies?
If you want uncommon clarity and results, ask uncommonly clear questions... Often, all that stands between you and what you want is a better set of questions.
- Tim Ferriss
After over 20 years of mental health experience in US and Australia, I have noticed that in both countries the success rates of the BEST psychologists is about one out of three clients... meaning, one is twice as likely to fail than to succeed.
No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.
- Albert Einstein
In time, I realized that these dim chances of healing are not due to shortcomings of the therapists or healing methods. Rather, they are rooted in a learned, “common sense” worldview from which, BOTH, therapies as well as sicknesses arise.
Whereas healing sciences are, indeed, based on rigorous research, ONLY second-tier ideas are scrutinized, while the basic notions, which the researched secondary ideas emerge from, are considered “common sense” and go unchecked. This is where the "viruses" in the operating system hide.
These “common sense”, unscrutinized ideas, form a kind of “Human Operating System” (HOS) shared by researchers, therapists, and their clients, and create reasoning blind-spots shared by everyone. The fact that everyone shares these blind-spots, makes them undetectable. It limits the questions we're able to ask, the methods we can conceive, and the healing results that are possible.
The mere formulation of a problem is far more often essential than its solution.
- Albert Einstein
For instance, consider the dualistic, common sense idea that mind and body are separate and different. As explained in the section above, the body is like a bio-computer. Hence, emotions, thinking, decisions and bodily processes occur at levels of mind-body interactions that cannot be classified as “mental" or “physical”, hence, psychology or medicine deals only with the symptoms without addressing their root cause. This means that the BULK of your illnesses has been ignored.
Consciousness is NOT something “we have”, but something "we ARE". Thus, healing, which is often defined as "making whole", is integrating the divided perceptions of dualistic consciousness.
The conventional state of human consciousness is called “dualistic”, because it understands the world by dividing or “dichotomizing” it into pairs of “things". For every left there is a right, for every up there is a down, for woman there is man. Dualism sees a fragmented world made of separate entities. Most people never question the paradigm they are born in and this blinds us to examining the effects of dualistic consciousness. This spirit of division inherent in dualistic consciousness is the operating system "virus" from which diseases as well as their sanctioned therapies arise.
Dualistic consciousness hampers healing. If there would be a common cause of all illnesses and, by extension, a common cure, the quest of dualistic sciences for separate remedies would blind them to the possibility of finding the common cure.
The task is not to see what has never been seen before, but to think what has never been thought before about what you see everyday.
- Niels Bohr, Quantum Physicist
Our Esoteric Wisdom Perspective On Healing And Illnesses
Higher Consciousness esoteric wisdom tells us that the single cause of all illnesses is the looming angst and meaninglessness that develops from the conflict between the spirit of division of learned, verbal-leaning consciousness and the non-dualistic makeup of true reality. This conflict, which we call Dualistic Dissonance Disorder™ (DDD), manifests as ever-abiding, general existential angst and dissent.
Dualistic Dissonance Disorder™ (DDD) is almost everyone's mental state and, hence, it goes undetected. It sponsors all our perceptions, feelings, thoughts, emotions, alcohol and drug use, and, collectively, sociopolitical and international conflicts. All mental, physical diseases, as well as spiritual illnesses are symptoms, while DDD is the disease.
If DDD is the root of all diseases, addressing DDD would thereby heal all of the diseases that arise from it. Has this claim ever been verified before? It has been suggested, but not by science, which, being dualistic, cannot verify non-dualistic principles. It was suggested by sages and philosophers who, from different cultures with little or no contact with each other said the same things.
Inner wisdom derived from states of inner stillness attained through meditation and deep contemplation is the true source of Esotherapy®. Listing the sages below does not indicate the origins of Esotherapy®, which was obtained from our personal inner meditative states of stillness. However, these renowned sages' words confer validity to the principles in that others have given voice to the same Higher Consciousness principles embodied in Esotherapy®.
Abraham Maslow, the Father of Humanistic Psychology, said...
... the divisive/dichotomizing/dualistic awareness causes illnesses
“As always, dichotomizing [or, "dividing"] pathologizes... Isolating two interrelated parts of a whole from each other, parts that need each other, parts that are truly "parts" and not wholes, distorts them both, sickens and contaminates them. Ultimately, it makes them non-viable. ... the point is driven home fully that they need each other in order to be themselves."
- Abraham Maslow, in Religions, Values, and Peak Experiences
... the integrative/nondualistic awareness of peak or mystical experiences heals
"It is my strong suspicion that even one such ["peak", or non-dualistic] experience might be able to prevent suicide, for instance, and perhaps many varieties of slow self-destruction, e.g., alcoholism, drug-addiction, addiction to violence, etc. I would guess also, on theoretical grounds, that peak-experiences might very well abort "existential meaninglessness", states of valuelessness, etc…*”
- Abraham Maslow, in Religions, Values, and Peak Experiences
*Note: Maslow was unable to use psychology, a dualistic science, to help his clients attain non-dualistic peak experiences.
Jesus came from the INTEGRATED / non-dualistic consciousness, which, he said, heals... while divisive dualism is the root of ALL ills.
"I come from that which is integrated... a person once integrated will become full of light, but once divided, he will be filled with darkness."
Other sages from cultures with little or no contact expressed similar wisdom that could not be said to arise from cultural sources. Like Rumi said, "Lamps are different, the light is the same":
“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the Souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.”
- Black Elk, Native American Holy Man
“We are here to awaken from our illusion of separateness.”
- Thich Nhat Hahn, Zen monk
“Wake up from this dream of separateness.”
- Shvetashvatara Upanishad, Hindu
“I am the tree you are me with the land and the sea we are one life not three in the essence of life we are one.”
- Kevin Gilbert, Australian Aboriginal
Similarly, scientific geniuses also explain:
“The human being is part of the whole, called by us the ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. “
— Albert Einstein, father of modern physics
“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.”
- Niels Bohr, Quantum Physicist
These scientists and sages agree that dualistic consciousness with its divisiveness causes all ills, while integrated, nondualistic consciousness heals them. As a consequence, a truly holistic therapy can be based on processing life-events through nondualistic, esoteric wisdom that integrates conventional dualistic consciousness (the root of all ills) into non-dual, holistic awareness and thinking.
We have organized non-dualistic, esoteric wisdom into a pioneering therapy for consciousness integration, called Esotherapy®, a therapy that can help you heal... even when every other conventional, dualistic therapy has failed.
