"

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

"

... every single one of those patients reported... [that] it's been one of the most transformative and profound experiences they had here."

"

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

We are enclosed by a wall built of our own conceptions of the world, and we are unable to see past it.  This includes our conceptions of illness & disharmony.  New therapies have attempted to merely re-shuffle these conceptual blocks.  What we really need are different perceptions on which to build a new healing paradigm.

Word 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. 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 IntegrationIt 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.

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

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

  • Workshops

  • Retreats & Pilgrimages

  • Ego Work & Meditation

Esotherapy®, short for Esoteric Wisdom Therapy™, is NOT psychotherapy.  It is an original Higher Consciousness guided healing method, whereby processing life-events through non-dualistic, esoteric wisdom integrates our subjective,  personal experience of being in the world.  The sessions provide a gentle, supportive environment within which our root, ontological beliefs of who we really are and what the world or reality around us is may be gently revealed, diligently explored and integrated.

Processing trauma & other life events through non-dualistic wisdom heals

the spirit of division of dualistic thinking, wakes us up from our dream of disconnection from each other and the world, and gently returns us to natural meaningful awareness and holistic inner peace & harmony. This ontological transformation:

  • facilitates healing of both emotional and physical stress and trauma

  • removes the valueless-ness & meaninglessness of divided, dualistic thinking, which belies both mental & physical illnesses

  • heals ailments that arise from the state of chronic stress generated by divided, dualistic awareness (i.e., anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, shame and guilt, hopelessness)… as well as the many physical diseases that these stresses create.

  • restores us to health & balance from inside-out, without drugs, invasive procedures, or associated medical side-effects.

Esotherapy® consists of an amalgam of healing touch and talk, meditation, contemplation and ceremony that switches awareness from a divided ego-centered to a holistic, integrated, spiritual state.
 

A consciousness integration therapy, Esotherapy®

  • helps us regain clarity,

 

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

  • helps illnesses of BOTH mind & body resolve naturally, from within,

  • bestows resilience to future stress & illness

  • leads to unbounded healing & growth.

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 illnesses we have seen all along

Consciousness is NOT something "we have", but something we ARE.  With this paradigm shift, healing, defined as "making whole”, is in effect the restoration of consciousness to its inborn, undivided or "non-dualistic” state.  As learned, "dualistic” consciousness, known by sages as the “spirit of division”, eclipses our inborn, undivided or non-dualistic consciousness, its disconnection causes the breakdown of our mental, physical, and social functions that rely on it.  We consider these maladies separate and independent, yet they are ALL mere manifestations of divisive perception.  Processing life events through wisdom without division, known as “esoteric” or "non-dualistic", integrates human dualistic consciousness, healing mind & body illnesses that arise from its division naturally… even when every other therapy has failed.* (see *NOTE, below)

Your chances for healing are not only greater than you imagine... they are greater than you CAN imagine.

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."
