Our thinking is enclosed by a wall built of our own views of the world, and we're unable to see past it.  Most new therapies merely re-shuffle such conventional thinking.  Whereas psychotherapy works with thinking, Esotherapy®, founded on non-dualistic or esoteric wisdom, alters fundamental patterns of awareness from which thinking and feelings emerge.  Thereby, Esotherapy deals with the root causes of both mind & body illness, expanding what we can heal & how fast we can heal it, not only beyond what we imagine, but...

beyound what we CAN imagine!

  • Trauma/PTSD

  • Addictions

  • Mood (Anxiety, Depression, Panic...)

  • Fears & Phobias

  • Stress & Burnout

  • Grief & Loss

  • Relationships & Parenting

  • Personality Disorders

  • Existential/Identity Crises

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".

Esotherapy®, short for Esoteric Wisdom Therapy™, is a 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 marking life events through non-dualistic wisdom heals

the spirit of division within our 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 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 many mental & physical illnesses

  • heals ailments that arise from the 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 unwanted side-effects.

Esotherapy® consists of a unique amalgam of healing touch & 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.

Esotherapy® was presented at the 2015 International Science & Non-duality Conference hosted by Dr. Deepak Chopra.

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.  This paradigm shift means that healing, which is defined as "making whole”, is the restoration of consciousness to its inborn, integrated or "non-dualistic” state.  As divided or "dualistic” verbal consciousness, known by sages as the “spirit of division”, eclipses our inborn, non-verbal, integrated or "non-dualistic" awareness, its disconnection causes breakdown of the mental, physical, and social functions that rely on it.  We think of such maladies as separate and independent, yet they are ALL mere manifestations of divisive perception.  Processing life events through wisdom without division, also known as “esoteric” or "non-dualistic", integrates verbal, dualistic consciousness, healing mind & body illnesses that arise from its division naturally… even when every other therapy has failed.* (see *NOTE, below)

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."

There are things that define you beyound the limits conventional therapies understand

"Non-dualistic" or "Higher Consciousness" IS the Holy Spirit

"Holy" is related to the word "whole", meaning "whole-ly".  Similarly, "healing" is often defined as "to make whole", undivided, "non-dualistic" or integrated.  Hence, non-dualistic consciousness is the "spirit of integration", a.k.a. "Holy (Whole-ly) Spirit".  No religion is needed to grasp the healing power.


Since consciousness is NOT something "we have", but something we ARE, non-dualistic wisdom without division restores consciousness from its learned, divided or dualistic state to its inborn, non-dualistic Spirit of Integration, previously known as  "Holly" Spirit

Sages the world over similarly taught that:

  • Integrated or non-dualistic awareness, a.k.a. "Holy Spirit", heals & restores life

  • Sickness & suffering arise from divided or dualistic consciousness.

* We use the terms "non-dualistic" or "Higher Consciousness", rather than "Holy Spirit", because the latter became too politicized to denote what was initially intended to - integration without division.

How Does Esotherapy® Work?

Quantum Physics tells us that the building block of matter, the atom, is 99.99999% empty.  This means that 99.99999% of your illness, too, is non-material, "esoteric", or... changeable.  By what means?  Definitely not through thinking that considers reality immutable.  What else is there?

"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real."


- Niels Bohr, Nobel Prize in Physics winner

There is an elemental wisdom that reaches deep down into the 99.99999% non-material nature of illnesses, which conventional therapies ignore. These laws are non-dualistic or "esoteric."

Humans are but a microcosm of nature.  Wisdom reflecting this non-dualistic, elemental balance & integration must be the foundation of sustainable therapy.

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

- Linda Hogan, Chickasaw writer

Your hope for healing is not only greater than you imagine, it is greater than you CAN imagine.*  By processing life-imprinting events through integrated, non-dualistic or esoteric wisdom integrates ontological beliefs we use to make sense of reality.

This integration heals old inner wounding, changes how we experience new events, and reduces life-long sympathetic,"fight or flight" arousal responsible for stress hormones production that cause tissue inflammation & weaken immune response, the very foundations of physical illnesses.

"... wisdom that is from above is...  without division ["Whole-ly" or "Holy"]..."

― James 3:17, Aramaic Bible in Plain English

"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."

― Jesus in Gospel of Thomas 61 (Layton translation)

"Dualistic thinking is a sickness"

― Lao Tzu, Taoist sage

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

  • “... ALWAYS, dichotomizing [or dividing] pathologizes

- Abraham Maslow, Father of Humanistic Psychology, Religions, Values, & Peak Experiences

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 inseparably connected with dualistic thinking, the very source

of the problems he was trying to remedy.  Thus, he went beyound psychology and founded Esotherapy® to be what psych-ology had, originally, set out to be... but, it is not.  The Greek word "psych" means "soul" or "spirit" and "-ology" means "knowledge of...".  Thus, psychology was meant to be a spiritual ministry for healing, but it hasn't achieved this.  Esotherapy® is the spiritual therapeutic ministry that psychology was meant to be... and a WHOLE LOT MORE.

Unlike psychology, psychotherapy and psychiatry, which are based on conventional, human dualistic thinking, Esotherapy® is made possible by non-dualistic or esoteric wisdom, which is NOT rooted in any external system of thinking or religion, but in non-denominational, DIRECT, HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS guidance for each specific healing need, which is obtained through direct, personal 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 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.  I simply had to ask different questions... not of the client, but of therapeutic thinking, itself.

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 and sicknesses arise.  Most people never question the paradigm they are born in and this blinds us to examining the effects of dualistic consciousness.

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.  This spirit of division inherent in dualistic consciousness  is the operating system "virus".

Dualistic consciousness hampers healing.  If there would be a common cause of all illnesses and, hence, 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.

  • Lao Tzu, Taoist sage and author of the Tao Te Ching, said that dualistic thinking, ITSELF, is a sickness.

Dualistic thinking is a sickness.


- Lao Tzu, Taoist Master

  • 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."

― Jesus in Gospel of Thomas 61 (Layton translation)

  • 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.

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