Philosophers observe the world and look for universal truths about the human condition to relieve suffering. Psychotherapists study productive behaviors and offer remedies that attempt to create peace, love, and harmony. Our mental, emotional and physical body requires balance like a three-legged stool. Eric firmly believes that love and illusion lie on a continuum that everyone can master. When we embrace both our light and darkness, without fear or denial, any problem can be healed. As our body, mind, and soul learn how to work together, love fills the void where illusion dwelled and equanimity rises up from within. The path to enduring happiness is revealed. Consistent mindful practices and self-compassion can heal any transgression. Everyone wants to be happy and whole. Eric’s approach includes learning where you want to go and developing a plan with you to make it happen.
