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

Relinquishing ego

Dr. Deepak Chopra and Gerald Whitehawk, Founder of Esotherapy®.
 Esotherapy was presented at the 2015  Science & Non-duality Conference  hosted by Dr. Deepak Chopraa 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®.

Benefits of Esotherapy®

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

  • heals both mind & body from within, without drugs or side effects

  • restores clarity 

  • bestows resilience to future stress, trauma and physical illnesses

A New Healing Paradigm

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 separate entities. 


This learned, fragmented  or "dualistic", perception is characterized by a spirit of division in opposition to the integrated spirit of inborn awareness.


Since consciousness is not something we have, but something we ARE, the  spirit of division of learned consciousness introduces dissonance in our natural human mental, physiological & social functions.  The outcome manifests as "illnesses" we believe to be different & separate... yet, they are only symptoms of a, SINGLE disease - dualistic consciousness. Conversely, re-integrating dualistic consciousness is the foundation of true holistic healing.


"Healing" is often defined as "to make whole".  That is to make who we are - cons-ciousness - integrated, "non-dualistic", whole / whole(-ly) or "HOLY""... in spirit. This Holy Spirit is also the oneness matrix of the   entire existence. Integrating individual consciousness to reflect this oneness of natural existence integrates the personal consciousness with the Holy Spirit.


Esotherapy integrates

individual consciousness by processing life-events through non-dualistic, undivided, whole(-ly) / Holy inner wisdom, often called "esoteric". ("eso" = inner, withinEsotherapy is, hence, a spiritual ministry that integrates our experience of ourselves and the world, having deep emotional & physiological transformative effects.

Since consciousness is who we are, Esotherapy® heals us from within, without drugs or side-effects.  This inner integration bestows resilience to future illness, stress, trauma. (see note)

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."

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 Holy Spirit of IntegrationIt sees people & things as temporary manifestations of a single, ubiquitous Essence.

Esoteric wisdom ("eso" = inner, within) of the Spirit Within or Higher Consciousness is 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".

Medical Directors' Endorsements




"... 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® (the root of the word, "eso-", means "inner" or "within") is a Higher Consciousness inspired talk, touch, meditation, contemplation & spiritual ceremony approach.  It processes imprinting life events through the perspective of integrated /  whole  /  "whole(-ly)" / "Holy" / Higher Consciousness (a.k.a.,  "Inner Spirit"). This makes Esotherapy a spiritual  MINISTRY, rather than a secular therapeutic 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 means "whole(-ly)".  A closely 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)... or "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 consciousness - be it divided or integrated - 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.

The Healing Foundations 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 Healing Principles

"... 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)

Esotherapy is a ministry for merging individual consciousness with Higher Consciousness or the Great (understood as "sum" / "whole(-ly)) or Holy Spirit.  Such an integration renders your chances for healing NOT only greater than you imagine, but greater than you CAN imagine
