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."

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.

 Esotherapy was presented at the 2015  Science & Non-duality Conference, a world-wide gathering of pioneers of medicine, psychology, quantum physics, neuroscience & spirituality who conspire to elevate the level of human consciousness and enhance healing

The light is one, but the lamps are many, said Rumi.  Sages from distant cultures, with little or no connection, gave voice to a similar, timeless Higher Consciousness wisdom on healing:

Divided or "Dualistic" Consciousness Causes 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.
