 Healing illnesses conventional therapies failed to heal is NOT about seeing what has not been seen, but about thinking what hasn't been thought about such illnesses.   Yet, this therapeutic reasoning is enclosed by a wall built of our inherited understandings and we can't see past it.  A different understanding of ourselves is needed as a foundation for true healing.

 Esotherapy was presented at the 2015  Science & Non-duality Conference  hosted by Dr. Deepak Chopra, a world-wide gathering of pioneers of medicine, psychology, quantum physics, neuroscience & spirituality.

Paradigm Change:  Consciousness is NOT something we have, but something we ARE - both, mind & body.  Thus, healing consciousness heals mind & body illnesses from within, without drugs or side effects.  With this new paradigm your chances for healing are not only greater than you ima-gine... they are greater than you CAN imagine.  This holistic approach is called Esotherapy®.


Useful Definitions:

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. This generates abiding conflicts & stress, and is the source of all mental and physical ills.

Non-dualistic ("whole", whole-ly, "holy") Higher Consciousness, is noted for its Spirit of IntegrationIt sees people & things as temporary manifestations of a single, ubiquitous Essence.  Only the everlasting Essence is important and its fleeting forms are not.

Esoteric wisdom ("eso" = inner, within) of the Spirit Within or Higher Consciousness derived through DIRECT meditation & contemplation.  Such wisdom is non-dualistic or without division.

Ontological beliefs - root beliefs about the nature of reality that we use to make sense of personal, subjective experiences, a.k.a. "phenomena".

Benefits of Esotherapy®

  • helps us regain clarity and returns us to our natural, positive self-esteem and hopeful, meaningful outlook on life,

  • heals from within, without drugs or side effects, ailments like anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, shame and guilt, existential hopelessness, valueless-ness and meaninglessness … as well as the physical diseases derived from divided, dualistic thinking

  • leads to unbounded healing & growth


  • bestows resilience to future stress and trauma.

Esotherapy® is a shift away from philosophical  sciences to the ageless wisdom of sages

The world is one, but the words are separate.  As we learn to rely on words to perceive the world in the place of oneness, we see a world of divided entities.  This learned, fragmented or "dualistic" consciousness, embodies a "spirit of separation", opposite to the inborn consciousness, which embodies the Whole(-ly) / Holy Spirit of All existence.


Since consciousness is not something we have, but something we ARE,  dualistic consciousness dis-integrates our mental, physical and social functions.  We think of sicknesses as separate and different... yet they are all merely different manifestations of fragmente, dualistic consciousness.  Integrating consciousness - who we are in mind AND body - heals the illnesses arising from divided consciousness.


"Healing", defined as "to make whole", is, thus, to make consciousness integrated, non-dualistic, whole(-ly) or... "holy"Thus, true therapy is a ministry not a secular undertaking.

Esotherapy® integrates consciousness by processing life-events through non-dualistic or "esoteric" wisdomThis integrates the good and the bad into a meaningful "as is" experience of being that has sweeping emotional & physiological healing effects.

Client Testimonials

Mental Illness                      Physical Illness

"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."

"... every single one of those patients reported... it's been one of the most transformative and profound experiences.."


(former Trauma Services Director of Sierra Tucson)

"In a handful of sessions the clients we shared made tremendous progress... impossible with today's therapies."

"ENLIGHTENING and EMPOWERING...  In 4 or 5 sessions, I have seen our residents make a shift out of old patterns of thinking they had been stuck in for many years." 


Esotherapy® ("eso-", meaning "inner" or "within") is NOT a secular therapy.  It is an inner, Higher Consciousness / Spirit inspired talk, touch, meditation, contemplation and ceremony approach.  It processes life events through the perspective of integrated / non-dualistic / whole  /  "whole(-ly)" / "Holy"  Consciousness or Inner Spirit wisdom.  Esotherapy is a spiritual  MINISTRY, rather than a secular method.

Why Esotherapy® can heal you, even when every other therapy has failed

The word "holy", as in "Holy Spirit", is related to "whole".  It actually means "whole(-ly)".  A related concept, "healing", is defined as "to make whole", "non-dualistic" or integrated.  Hence, healing is to make who we are - consciousness or "spirit" - non-dualistic, whole, or whole(-ly) / "Holy" in spirit.


Processing trauma and other life-events through non-dualistic/"whole-ly" or "holy" wisdom restores consciousness from its learned, divided state to its inborn whole-ly or "Holy" Spirit, which heals illnesses.


Since 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 we believe that the latter became too politicized and misunderstood to represent its original, intended meaning.

Foundational Principles of Esotherapy

Humans are but a microcosm of nature.  The same elemental laws that sustain nature, sustain healing.  Thus, this natural Higher Consciousness, elemental wisdom must be the foundation of all sustainable mind or body therapy.

"There is a language beyond human language, an elemental language, one that arises from the land itself."

- Linda Hogan, Chickasaw writer

Elemental, natural wisdom is integrative, non-dualistic whole, and, being hard to understand has been called "esoteric".  This eso-, meaning "inner", wisdom re-appraises imprinting events, heals deep seated trauma, and confers resilience by changing tlife experience of past, present & future events.

Consciousness integration optimizes emotional and physiological harmony and promotes sustainable, holistic, resilient mind-body well--being from within, without side effects or invasive procedures.

Higher Consciousness or Holy Spirit Sage Wisdom

"... wisdom... from above is... without division" [integrated or non-dualistic]

Jesus in James 3:17, Aramaic Bible in Plain English

"God is... one[-ness or integration]"

― James 2:19,

"I come from that which is integrated [Whole(-ly) or "Holy"]... a person once...

  • integrated will become full of light...

  • divided will be filled with darkness."

― Jesus in Gospel of Thomas 61 (Layton translation)

"Dualistic thinking is a sickness"

― Lao Tzu, Taoist sage


  • “… even ONE such [non-dualistic] experience might be able to prevent suicide… self-destruction, … 'existential meaninglessness', states of valuelessness, etc…”​s

  •  "... always, dichotomizing [or dividing] pathologizesIsolating two inter-related parts of a whole... distorts them both, sickens and... makes them non-viable... they need each other in order to be themselves.

- Abraham Maslow, Father of Humanistic Psychology,

(in Religions, Values, & Peak Experiences)

About Esotherapy® Sessions

Esotherapy®, or Esoteric Wisdom Therapy, provides a gentle, supportive environment within which our basic world-views we use to make sense of our world, known as "ontological assumptions" are gently revealed, diligently explored and integrated.  These ontological assumptions of who we are and what the world is are dualistic and they form the invisible backdrop of our thinking, emotions and bodily processes.  Divided, or dualistic, ontological worldviews cause a chronic state of cognitive dissonance and stress.  This induces chronically elevated levels of stress hormones that cause tissue inflammation, damage blood vessels and the heart, weaken the immune response, and, as such, form the foundation of all known killer diseases. 


Lao Tzu, Christ, Buddha, Abraham Maslow and many other sages explained that divided awareness is, in itself, a DISEASE.  Conversely, integrating who we are - consciousness - heals mind, body, spiritual and even social symptoms of dualistic consciousness.  What we ordinarily call "diseases" are only SYMPTOMS of this root "Dualistic Consciousness Disorder".  This also implies that therapies founded on dualistic thinking further entrench dualism as the root pathogen.

Esotherapy, formulated on non-dualistic or esoteric Higher Consciousness wisdom, is a spiritual ministry for healing and personal growth, rather than a secular therapy.  It is an ontological method that changes how we see of ourselves in the world.  It is a phenomenological method as well, in that it changes our direct, subjective experience of the world.  As such, Esotherapy's outcomes are profound, life-changing and confer resilience to future anxiety, mood fluctuations, stress, and the often perceived meaninglessness of living, and trauma.

We've been asked if clients have to "believe in God' for Esotherapy  to work for them.  What we refer to when we use this word is the Spirit or Consciousness of all Creation.  You do not have to believe in it, as it is enough that this Consciousness abides in you.  You contain all the necessary "ingredients" for being healthy.

About Gerald

Even at an undergraduate level, Gerald was commended by the Director of American Psychological Association , Dr. Emil Rodolfa, for doing post-doctoral work and spearheading a novel psychology field.


Presently, Gerald is an ordained minister (Reverend) and highest honors (suma cum laude) Psychology and Philosophy of Religion graduate of University of California at Davis, one of the top 15 schools in the world. 


Gerald realized that psychology is based on dualistic thinking, the root cause of the health problems it is trying to remedy.  He founded Esotherapy® to be what psych-ology set out to be, but failed to achieve.  The Greek word "psych" means "soul" or "spirit" and "ology" means "knowledge of" or "science".  Psychology never became the "science of spirit" it purported to be, but Esotherapy® IS that original, intended ministry.

While psychotherapy, psychiatry or medicine are based on secular, dualistic, philosopher track thinking, Esotherapy® is founded on non-dualistic, esoteric wisdom, rooted in DIRECT, non-denominational, HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS guidance.  This wisdom is obtained DIRECTLY, for each individual case, through the therapist's communion with the Higher Consciousness or Holy Spirit.*

 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.
