Our thinking is enclosed by a wall built of our own views of the world, and we're unable to see past it.  Healing illnesses that 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 such illnesses.

The light is one, but the lamps are many, said Rumi.  Sages from distant cultures, with little or no connection, voiced a similar Higher Consciousness inner wisdom:

Divided or "Dualistic" Consciousness Gives Rise To Sickness and

Healing Arises From Its Integration

... a person

  • once integrated will become full of light...

  • once divided will become full of darkness.

- Jesus, Thomas 61 (Layton translation)



Dualistic [or, divisive] thinking is a sickness.

- Lao Tzu, Taoist sage, in Tao Te Ching

... dichotomizing [or, dividing] pathologizes...  Isolating two interrelated parts of a whole from each other… distorts them both, sickens and contaminates them...  it makes them non-viable.

- Abraham Maslow, Father of Humanistic Psychology


All things are bound together.  All things connect.

- Chief Seattle, Native American


I come from that which is integrated [Whole-ly/Holy]

- Jesus, Thomas 61 (Layton translation)


“I am the tree you are me with the land and the sea we are one life not three..."

- Kevin Gilbert, Australian Aboriginal


Consciousness is NOT something we have, but something we ARE.

- Dr. Deepak Chopra

As such, healing, defined as to make whole, is to make who we are - meaning, consciousness - whole or "whole-ly".  The word “holy” is derived from“whole". "Holy"/"Whole-ly" Spirit is the integrated essence or "spirit" of all Existence (Jeremiah 24, James 3:17)... and, consequently, of consciousness.

Restoring individual consciousness to its Holy/Whole-ly or "non-dualistic" Spirit heals body & mind, from within...



Esotherapy® goes BEYOND healthcare, in that it is a personal growth and transformation therapy, which uses"esoteric" or non-dualistic Higher Consciousness timeless, inner wisdom to integrate consciousness and, thereby, heal both MIND and BODY from within.


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 philosophers' thinking to the wisdom of sages

The world is one, but the words are separate.  As we learn to perceive the world through words, in the place of oneness, we see a world of divided entities.  This learned, "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.  Erroneously, we think of sicknesses as separate and different... yet they are merely different manifestations of divisive, dualistic consciousness.  Integrating consciousness - which is who we are - heals the illnesses, which arise from divisive 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.

Esotherapy® is endorsed by doctors and clinical directors as a "most transformative" therapy that yields "tremendous progress impossible with today's therapies in a handful of sessions"

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."

"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.  I endorse Esotherapy® and Gerald as a provider.  He is remarkable!"


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

The word "holy", as in "Holy Spirit", is related to "whole"; it means "whole-ly".  A related concept, "healing" is defined as "to make whole", undivided, "non-dualistic" or integrated.  Hence, healing is to make consciousness, our inner "spirit", non-dualistic, Whole(-ly) or "Holy" 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 the latter became too politicized and misunderstood to understand its true, original meaning.

Those Who Do Not Understand Life Can Never Understand Healing or Therapy

Quantum Physics says that the atom is 99.99999% empty.  This means that the "reality" of your illness is... 99.99999% empty, meaning, it is CHANGEABLE.  How?

"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.  The non-dualistic or "esoteric" wisdom reflected in nature must, hence, be the foundation of real therapy.

The spiritual blueprint for healing is as simple as it is unique and unheeded.  Since, consciousness is not something we "have", but something we are, healing, which means to make whole/whole-ly or "holy", means to make consciousness whole/whole-ly/holy.  True therapy, is, therefore, a ministry of processing life-events through esoteric or non-dualistic wisdom.


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

"... wisdom... from above is... without division"

About Healing Through Esotherapy®


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 Esotherapy 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 the usual, 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.*

 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.


- Dr. Candace Pert, Neuroscientist, Researcher

Memories and feelings can be stored 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.


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.

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.

- Albert Einstein

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.

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

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.

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
