DEPTH PSYCHOLOGY & DZOGCHEN PSYCHOLOGY SHAKE HANDS
Depth psychology’s understanding of the human mind explains why we are so often confused, dissatisfied and unfulfilled. The work of depth therapy is to become aware and conscious enough to break free from the unconscious forces that limit and control our lives. So we can become who we truly are and live more freely and fully.
Dzogchen psychology is a contemplative science. that aligns well with depth psychology. Its discoveries take depth psychology’s understanding of the mind even further. My work is to enable depth psychology to reset and refresh itself in light of this new knowledge.
Dzogchen Psychology’s discovery of the mind’s essential nature changes everything. In the same way that Polish astronomer Copernicus’ discovery that the sun, not the earth, is the center of our solar system, changed everything. Dzogchen Psychology research unveiled the mind’s ultimate nature. Depth psychology is just beginning to integrate this remarkable discovery. A discovery that sits well with Jung's work, as he imagined, experienced and lived it
THE CHANGING ROLE OF PSYCHOLOGY & THERAPY
Copernicus rocked the boat when he placed the sun at the center of things. He was scoffed at initially by scientists, artists and church authorities. Yet, in time, his work changed the role of astronomy in society. Similarly, Dzogchen Psychology’s research will, in time, change the role of psychology and therapy as we know it.
Dzogchen psychology leads us into a direct experience of what depth psychology has been talking about only intellectually for decades. We now know what a sound, healthy mind is and how to cultivate and protect it. So we can realize our deepest possibilities.
Depth psychology can shed light on the obstacles that interfere with Dzogchen psychology's efforts to be clearly understood and well practiced in the west.
