In psychological terms, we call a state of inner turmoil a crisis. It can be triggered by any number of life’s events - a broken relationship, a job loss, a sudden death, or an illness, or, it can just spontaneously emerge from within us. A crisis is symptomized by prolonged states of depression, angst, or a vague feeling of discontentedness. A real psychological crisis is a shattering experience. It breaks down everything around which we have built our self-concept, leaving us like broken bits of glass, no longer capable of containing anything or serving any purpose. If you are here, we consider this a real moment of truth in your life - a divine calling for transformation.
We know from personal experience that the answers you seek are already in you. You only need to learn how to listen and watch for them. We work with the intention of drawing you into a direct relationship with your deepest, personal wisdom - what C.G. Jung called the Self. This is a center from which you can face anything that happens in your life, no matter what that is. Living from this center not only lends you an incredible strength, but also draws unimaginable synchronicities into your life.

When they get home they […]
The ego gets a pretty bad rap these days. I can’t count the number of times someone says something like “It’s just ego,” or “It’s all ego,” as though the ego were something we should or even could just dispense of at will. As the center of our conscious mind, the ego is a psychological necessity. Perhaps a lot of what people say today comes from the influx of Eastern philosophy. It is important to […]
