Transpersonal Counseling 

Provided by Michelle Rigling, PhD, M.Sc., CLC, MBA

Transpersonal Counseling, a blend of depth psychology, traditional counseling, and spiritual practices that empower and bring balance to the whole self. Transpersonal Counseling takes us beyond the mind and ego's interpretation of our lives circumstances and opens the door to a deep journey. When regard our experiences and dis-eases as teachers or messengers, and learn how to interact with them from a place of curiosity, openness, and self-trust. Through this approach, radical (and unexpected) transformation can result from even exceptionally difficult circumstances. The path that unfolds may not be an easy one, but it will be a deeply meaningful one, and, it will be authentically yours.

What is the difference between therapy and transpersonal counseling?

As with many types of care, there is some overlap. Both offer a safe space for vulnerability, exploring what is going on in your life, and having access to resources and professional guidance outside of your family or friend group. Therapy is an excellent choice for many types of life situations and challenges. Transpersonal counseling differs from what most people consider therapy in that sessions often involves an eclectic and unconventional blend of practices, some ancient and some on the fringe of western medicine. In addition to discussion and reflection, our work together could involve nature immersion, co-designed ceremony, plant-spirit work, intense release work, visualization or journeying, or other practices that engage the body, spirit, and intuition in the healing process.
