About Avraham

I work with you in the ways that are as attuned as possible to who you are overall, and who you are in the moment. As well, I attend to my own inner state, and the relationship we are developing. I see our relationship as reflective of what we can work on, and also as offering the highest possibility of multi-dimensional contact and connection; all in the service of your work to heal wounds and your development towards what Abraham Maslow characterized as "the far reaches of human nature."

I believe human beings are in an ongoing process of trying to align with their own authentic nature; that nature that has been compromised by a multitude of factors, including, family of origin (or lack thereof), educational experience, culture, peers, religious institutions, and all the large forces that impinge on human beings from their earliest moments of existence. Our work will facilitate identifying these factors in a global way, and most importantly, in a personal and relational way, and working with that which has become entrenched behaviorally, emotionally, and cognitively into small and persistent egoic structures, all of which have a good intention. However, the circumstances within which these structures arose no longer exist. These egoic structures can be seen as 'having you,' rather than you having them. These structures invariably began their appearance at a very early point in your appearance in this outer world; they represent a point of arrested development. This we all have...

The development of a different consciousness, a different way of experiencing life, is germane to the process of what I call inner work. Such work is process oriented; that is it begins from wherever you are in your life, and proceeds to fine the ground that this represents, and how to facilitate the unfolding development that is wanting to happen.
