The course consists of learning various disciplines that take the individual beyond the comforts of conditioned understanding. Mastering these skills generates allowance and empowerment that brings the individual's focus out of ego-identity consciousness into individual Self-awareness. Here we have the choice to choose between emotional-responsibility or reactive conditioning. Emotional responsibility eventually replaces identity-limitations by eliminating the individual's reactive behavior. The passionate seeker will learn to make choices that lead to joy, peace and realization.
The need for this course had grown out of the awareness that traditional psychology has been woefully inadequate. Fixing the stress fractures in an individual is not prevention. The "fix" only teaches emotional identification, not emotional responsibility. Traditional therapies continue the practice of mistaking emotive behavior for emotional experience. This leaves the patient lacking when their effort only produces intellectual understanding, rather than the skills to resolve future emotional problems. This built-in dependence keeps the patient relying on outside sources to resolve their life issues.
Traditionally, therapeutic treatment is limited to identifying emotions, in order to solve specific reactive problems. This inadvertently re-enforces the person's inability to experience emotion. Without proper techniques, patients are unable to move beyond their reactive problems, into their self-awareness, on their own. Traditional training is intellectual and therefore dependent on the remedies of the ego. Healers are trained to offer coping-skills rather than life skills.
When people really learn to feel their emotions, they rapidly heal and are naturally motivated towards their inner or spiritual awareness. Without appropriate assistance they are left to search for something that will offer comfort to their spiritual need to grow. This deficiency is a common therapeutic result when there is no understanding of the difference between reacting to emotions and experiencing emotions. One generates behavior and the other generates healing.
The difficulty with our present remedies is that they exist at the discretion of the ego. In other words, they are the result of the very communication patterns that prevent identity-exposure. This is the outcome of our limited understanding about the mysteries of identity-consciousness. Without the proper skills to overcome the egos' control, people cannot remove the innate social patterning that is insidious and pervasive, although never obvious. These conditioned patterns exert enormous control, effecting everyone, healer or not. They create the stresses and diseases that distort our ability to live happily, and control our ability to evolve.
When people are unable to live happily and freely, they seek answers from outside them selves. This inadvertently creates more problems because "going outside" ourselves is the pattern that supports our collective dysfunction. When people are searching they tend to accept superficial or insufficient remedies. These coping-skills might be spiritual in context but also keep the personal focus outside them selves.
