6. Regarding the methodology: I would like to know what is special about this course compared to the others
The School of Integral Transpersonal Counseling contemplates an integral vision of the human being in which the spiritual level is not configured as an added element but as the ordering principle.
The current scientific revolution, which sees how a new unified paradigm is being imposed from different fields of knowledge, from quantum physics to the philosophy of science, brings to attention the original meaning of psychotherapy as a cure for the soul, within an area of care in which the sacred dimension is central. That meaning for nearly two centuries has been relegated to being a forgotten side; it proposes a new type of science in which it is accorded to first-person methods, which also include the contemplative attitude, the same dignity attributed to them in third person, to which the primacy of scientificity is attributed.
The mechanistic approach considers normal the state of consciousness mediated by sensory and logical structures, in relation to the external world, well oriented in time and space. For the transpersonal vision, the psyche cannot be traced back to the mind and the mind cannot be placed in the brain. In transpersonal culture, consequently, la consciousness it is an incessant flow that permeates everything, it informs the mind, the emotions and the body. It follows that one of the fundamental points of the methodology is the work with the different states of consciousness and the acquisition of inner technologies for their mastery.
Biotransenergetics responds to the need born within the new paradigm of approach that can respond to the needs of this new vision, in which the human phenomenon and the helping relationship must necessarily decline. beyond the mind e beyond the world of knowledge, providing the proper tools to explore "the realms of consciousness".
For a long time research in the Human Sciences has considered only the elementary needs of the human being, leaving out the determinants of a higher order, defined as “non-homeostatic” or “meta-motives”; among these higher order determinants we find: the need to give meaning to life, the drive towards self-realization, the sense of transcendence. As the revolutionary advances made in various disciplines of modern science continue to demolish the now obsolete materialistic worldview of the last century, it is already possible to see the emergence of the generic form of a new understanding of ourselves, of nature and of the universe in which we live.
We begin to become aware of the fact that the spiritual dimension plays a fundamental role for the human being in one's life, as happens for sexuality or family relationships. Therefore it is not possible to continue to leave the spiritual dimension of existence outside the helping relationship.
