We can access the layers of the unconscious mind through a variety or methods. These layers of the unconscious include:

Plugged channels (nadis) in the etheric body.

Repressed or buried beliefs, defenses.

Symbolic Band

A variety of methods have been developed from interacting with these layers of the unconscious:

Physical – Psychotropic and palliative medication, bodywork and massage.

Etheric – Herbal, homeopathic or nutritional treatments, acupuncture, acupressure, bodywork and massage.

Emotional – Psychotherapy, hypnosis and meditation.

Mental – Psychotherapy, hypnosis and meditation.

Symbolic Band – Psychotherapy, hypnosis and meditation.

Karmic Substrate – Meditation and Light Immersion.

Essence – Meditation and Light Immersion.

We present and train practitioners in meditation techniques that have special relevance for the work of encountering and working with the unconscious mind in our course, Meditation for Therapists. This course is taught from an Integral Meditation perspective. It may be of interest for practitioners who wish to work with issues in their unconscious and add to their repertoire of methods to assist their clients in navigating their inner world of consciousness.

Individuals interested in learning more about Karma’s role in the unconscious mind may also wish to take our Karma Workshop and read the Articles on Karma in our Reading Room on this web site. For related articles on this web site, see Meditation on Symbols and Imagery Techniques in Psychotherapy.
