I come to the vocation of psychotherapy out of a dual interest. First, I approach the practice of therapy as a form of contemplation on the nature of the self. In the light of awareness, feelings, thoughts and sensations arise and fall, allowing one to see their true nature, and taking us to a sense of the undying source from which they arise. From this way of perceiving life, suffering that is held up tightly in mind and body can be felt and released. Old, habitual patterns of responding to life become more conscious, and can be let go of. One’s unique gifts become more visible. A sense of calling can be listened to.

Second, psychotherapy is a form of caregiving, of offering a listening space in a world that often makes us feel like an isolated individual who has to fight out his battles. Psychotherapy is a humane space where all parts of oneself are respected and met with compassion. The suffering person is listened to and conveyed that they are not alone, that their suffering can be borne and healed, in the companionship of another.

A bit about me personally – since my early teens, I have been interested in understanding why I am here on this earth, what the purpose of our life is, and how we may relate to this vast universe. At 19, I began to practise yoga and meditation in a meditation school inspired by the Transcendental Meditation movement and over the years, volunteered as a meditation instructor and facilitated counselling groups. I continue to practice, although not I am not associated with any organisations any more.

In my late twenties, I went through a period of disorientation and change, following having left the spiritual organisation I had been part of for the first decade of my adult life and given much of my heart to it. Through a painful churning, I began to relate in new ways to this flux of sensations, emotions, and thoughts that is the self. A deep sense of silence, aliveness and intensity was emerging.

At the time, the writings of J. Krishnamurti resonated very deeply and guided me through this part of my journey. The work of Thomas Merton and Jean Klein have also found resonance in my experience, along with several other teachers in and outside the spiritual traditions of the world, both theistic and non-theistic.

In different ways, all human experience, when fully seen rather than avoided, is a portal into the silence of the present moment, where the old slowly gives way, and new ways of being are born. The work of our lives is to fully live and embody this experience of change, in our thoughts, words and actions, and suffering is an invitation to this journey.

About the Nondual Approach

Non-duality is a contemporary word for an ancient perception that all that we perceive in our inner and outer worlds, from our emotions and thoughts to objects and other persons, emerge from a silent, imperceptible, yet deeply present reality that is the ground of all being.

Non-duality is not a belief that someone needs to be converted into. It is an experience that one can have when one enters the witnessing space, and simply observes the emotions, sensations and thoughts in our consciousness at this moment, without grasping at anything in particular or avoiding anything.

Emotional pain, as also physical pain, is an invitation to deepen this perception and immerse oneself into deeper layers of this perception, for this perception is not something we come to once and for all time, but a journey we are on that is ever refining itself.

An open, explorative conversation with another human being who understands such a perspective on reality can help us deepen our own relationship to it.

When we perceive things in this way, we see that there is a letting go of our defences against painful emotions and sensations, as against new, unexpected emotions and sensations.We are able to feel, express and understand more of our reality.

This has a therapeutic effect of reducing our sense of struggle in day to day life, and softening the harsh intensity of painful emotions. It also has a contemplative aspect of helping us understand our inner and outer world more deeply.

The therapist is simply a companion. The moment he becomes an authority figure for you, you are not in a relaxed, explorative state of consciousness, but rather, in a grasping and avoidant state, since authority evokes both a sense of control that we grasp at by identifying with the authoritative person and a sense of fear that we avoid.
