Desire maintains a deceitful dynamic. It is like a train on an endless track that refuels without losing momentum or stopping and never reaches its destination.

Real change comes about through inner work, when we “attend to soul” and discover who we are. Only then can we can realize our potential for truth, power, creativity and satisfaction. But how do we proceed when faced with such a confusing array of approaches, often mixing modern psychology and ancient, usually Eastern traditions?
As a psychotherapist and spiritual teacher, I have explored deeply the relationship between personal therapy and spiritual growth, because they refer us to our innate capacity for wholeness. I found that they are connected by a middle stage of authenticity that brings our unique, compassionate self into true relationship with other people and the world.
My therapeutic approach is an innovative psycho-spiritual psychotherapy, which reveals a new understanding of what it is to know yourself and really change. To find out more about this inner journey, see human awakening.

Years later, I am still amazed at how different I am because of working with Richard. Everything that changed was for the better. His insight into spiritual matters is only rivaled by his ability to explain them. He is a genuine teacher, not blinded by spiritual pride like so many self-proclaimed 'gurus'. I can honestly say that my time spent with him was one of the most eye-opening experiences I've ever had. E. K.
