Relinquishing ego

Dr. Deepak Chopra and Gerald Whitehawk, Founder of Esotherapy®.
 Esotherapy was presented at the 2015 international  Science & Non-duality Conference  hosted by Dr. Deepak Chopraa world-wide gathering of pioneers of medicine, psychology, quantum physics, neuroscience & spirituality.

The key to healing ills conventional therapies couldn't heal is that consciousness is NOT something we have, but something we ARE - both, as mind & body.  Healing consciousness heals both mental & physical illnesses naturally, from within... without drugs, side-effects, or invasive procedures.

Benefits of Esotherapy®

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

  • heals mind & body ills from within... without drugs or side effects

  • restores clarity 

  • bestows resilience to future stress, trauma and physical illnesses

Our Pioneering Paradigm on Illness and Healing

The world is one, but the words of our language are separate and many.   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 "diced up" or "minced upmental, physical, parental, or interpersonal 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)

The mind that creates the problem, does not have the solution.  Thus, Esotherapy cannot be a secular mind therapy, but a MINISTRY for integrating the individual with Higher Consciousness. Then, your chances for healing become not only greater than you imagine, but greater than you CAN imagine...  as seen in the testimonials 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."

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 continuum or etheric 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".

"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." 


To heal illnesses conventional therapies have failed to heal, we need to look at these sicknesses in ways no one considered.  As learned, divisive or "dualistic" awareness replaces the inborn, integrated consciousness, it "minces/dices" entires vital mental, physical, familial, social  functions of inborn, non-dualistic awareness causing illness.  Since dualism obfuscates oneness, we see its different effects as "separate" sicknesses of mind, body, society, or the world.  Looking for different solutions we miss the single cure, the integration of dualistic awareness.

Why Esotherapy® can heal 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(-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 Principles 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)

Mind & Body Illnesses Are Not Separate


Once a newborn's integrated or non-dualistic consciousness is replaced by socially acquired               dualistic awareness, the resulting cognitive dissonance it engenders, creates ever-abiding, elevated levels of stress and stress-related hormones that cause chronic tissue inflammation, damage the heart and blood vessels and weaken the immune response necessary for fighting killer diseases, like cancer.

Esotherapy Is A Ministry, NOT A Secular Therapy

The mere formulation of a problem is far more often essential than its solution.


- Albert Einstein

Our learned, dualistic understandings of who we are and what the world is, known as "ontological assumptions", form the invisible cognitive dissonance foundation of our emotions, values, personal decisions and actions, as well as the backdrop of our bodily, physiological reactions to the world.  Shared across all cultures, divisive understandings go unquestioned as the true reality we live in. This commonality of ontological assumption renders the illusion so big that it can't be seen.

Healing cannot be limited to either the mind or body, or, in truth, even to a singular society.  Healing is, in fact, a healing of the individual awareness of the Spirit of Oneness or Wholeness inherent to all existence; in other words it is "esoteric".  Esoteric sages the world over, such as Lao Tzu, Christ, Chief Seattle, Buddha, etc., taught that divided or dualistic awareness is the root sickness that fills our existence with sickness, be it mental, physical, social, political or environmental.  Conversely, integrating awareness heals our minds and bodies... as well as humanity-at-large.


As such, true healing can only be a spiritual ministry for healing by making human consciousness or spirit whole, whole(-ly) or "holy".  This makes the Holy Spirit the core of one's individual identity.  Esotherapy is this spiritual healing ministry, which uses esoteric sage-wisdom to process directly life-imprinting events and integrate individual awareness into Holy Spirit consciousness.

About Our Sessions

Esotherapy®, short for Esoteric Wisdom Therapy, provides a gentle, supportive environment within which the basic world-views we use to make sense of our world, a.k.a., "ontological assumptions"are gently revealed, diligently explored and integrated.

Using esoteric wisdom to process significant life events and past trauma creates profoundly transforming changes in how we experience emotions, think, act, experience who we are in the world.  This changes our direct experience of the world and ourselves, which, in turn, confers resilience to future stress and trauma as well as to physical illness.

We've been asked if clients have to "believe in God' for Esotherapy to work for them.  You already contain within you all that is needed to heal. Esotherapy simply teaches you how to access your own immanent healing wisdom and natural wholeness that allows you to live fully.

About Gerald

Even at an undergraduate level, Gerald was commended by the Director of American Psychological Association, Dr. Emil Rodolfa, for doing post-doctoral work and spearheading a novel psychology field.


Presently, Gerald is an ordained minister (Reverend) and highest honors (suma cum laude) Psychology and Philosophy of Religion graduate of University of California at Davis, one of the top 15 schools in the world. 

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


- Albert Einstein

Gerald realized that psychology is based on dualistic thinking, the root cause of the problems it is seeking to remedy.  Thus, he founded Esotherapy® on non-dualistic, Inner Spirit wisdom to become what psychology had originally set out to be... yet, failed to achieve.

The Greek word "psych" means "soul" / "spirit", while "-ology" means "science".  Psychology never became the "science of spirit" it was purported to be, but Esotherapy® IS that original, intended ministry... and so much more.

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?


"Nature's laws affirm instead of prohibit.  If you want to violate her laws, you are your own prosecuting attorney, judge, jury, and hangman."


- Luther Burbank

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, often defined as "making whole", is the   integration of divided or dualistic consciousness.

Our Esoteric Wisdom Perspective On Healing And Illness

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.


The true source of Esotherapy® is inner or esoteric wisdom directly derived from our own personal inner, meditative and contemplative states of inner stillness.  Listing the sages below does not indicate the origins of Esotherapy®, yet the words of sages the world over offer timeless confirmation of the validity to our spiritual principles derived from to the same Higher Consciousness source.

Sages and mystics the world over were somewhat more successful at spreading the same message, but their words were largely not understood:

  • 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, quantum physics geniuses also explained the same principles sages above did:

“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,

“The total number of minds in in the universe is one.”

- Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel Prize winning physicist,

Consequently, a truly holistic therapy based on processing life-events through non-dualistic, esoteric wisdom is used, for the first time, as a consciousness integration therapy, called Esotherapy®.

As these doctors have noticed in the clients they sharedEsotherapy® can help you heal, even when every other therapy has failed.


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