Imagine you are somewhere feeling completely happy and safe, a place where you can be who you truly are. In this place of power and creativity, ask your spirit within what is wanted of you. Listen to the answer. Make a promise to your spirit to follow its lead.
Dr. Joseph Lancaster offers Gnostic Pneumatherapy® psycho-spiritual counseling, a unique view of therapy and analysis that emerges out of the healing arts of ancient Gnosticism and the contemporary depth psychological tradition of Dr. Carl Jung. Using this view, therapists and patients can approach healing from the four systems of human nature: the Source, the spirit, the soul, and the body. Listening and observing the wisdom of all four systems offers us the best outcome for healing.
To quiet the chatter of the mind, and soothe the turbalent emotions, and alleviate the body's distress, you can draw upon the sources of wisdom and learn to practice a way of life that is open to what is, centered in the present moment, and committed to act from your deepest values, the will of the spirit within. You will ask deeper questions and expect more profound answers.You will protect your dream and wake up to the person you are meant to be.
Our human problem is a lack of knowledge: ignorance. To defeat ignorance, we need to view ourselves differently, not as isolated entities but as participaants of the spirit world, members of a community who are making creative efforts to find and establish peace in ourselves and in our world. We each belong to that community of beings and our conscious involvement in that spiritual community is the key to unlocking the dynamics of liberation. And liberation is the precursor to finding wholeness.
Gnostic Pneumatherapy® psycho-spiritual approach answers the lack of knowledge problem by providing a vision and a plan. The vision spells out the reality of human nature and the purpose of our lives from a Gnostic point of view. The plan offers specific steps you can take in finding your own connection to the inner world.
Gnostic Pneumatherapy® psycho-spiritual approach grows out of the 100 plus years of psychotherapy and analysis pioneered by Dr. Jung. Dr. Lancaster has extended the focus on the mind and body to include the center of our being, the spirit, and the root of all being, the Source. It is by learning to watch and listen to the spirit within that we can stay open to what life brings us, experience the present moment, and act according to the deepest values to which we commit ourselves.
Dr. Lancaster has been initiated into the Gnostic tradition and mentored by Dr. Stephan A. Hoeller, Gnostic Bishop and Jungian Scholar, since 2001. To the best of Dr. Lancaster's ability, he practices the principles he has learned. He has the experience, knowledge, and wisdom to offer this service.
