I’m not a psychoanalyst, but I consider psychoanalysis a valid tool for the care and healing of the soul today.
Meditation does not replace psychoanalysis, nor vice versa. They are two different, if not complementary, things, but the latter is more likely to free up the “internal space” needed to better perform the former. As I have had occasion to explain in many courses and also in my short essay on Taoist practice that you can find HERE.
Of course we have to feel the need and be lucky enough to find a good professional who has the right care for us, but that’s a whole different topic. In short, only you can decide whether an analytic path can be part of whatever work you are already doing on yourself.
The practices we focus on here – during classes, courses and private consultations – are based on a precise awareness of what our soul is. A polarization of our Original Spirit formed by our many “self” operating in a multidimensional reality. Aspects intimately linked to the Taoist cosmological vision and which, although they do not conflict with an analytical approach, certainly represent a different kind of work.
The video course Hints of Daoist Cosmology, therefore, could be a useful first step in delving into the subject. The introduction is free and you therefore do not need to subscribe. All videos always have a free introduction and some also have content that can be enjoyed without any commitment.
