“I warn you, whoever you are, Oh! You who want to probe the arcana of nature, that if you do not find within yourself that which you are looking for, you shall not find it outside either! If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you pretend to find other excellencies? Within you is hidden the treasure of treasures! Know thyself and you will know the Universe and the Gods.”
— Inscription on the frontispiece of the Temple of Apollo on Mount Parnassus, Greece, 2500 B.C.

WHAT IS IT: I help you enter into spiritual development that centers in the particularity of your BE-ing. How you develop spiritually, how you make an inner connection with the spirits, requires self-knowledge more than spiritual direction alone. People who have worked in this way have found whatever spiritual tradition they practice opens in depth, awareness, and newness.

HOW WE PROCEED: In order to re-orient your fundamental being to interior guidance, we develop three tools of inner listening and seeing:

— Entering the Silence

— Entering Heart-Presence

— Entering Stillness

Each of these tools requires time and devoted daily practice, along with guidance. In one-on-one sessions, we do practices together with each of these tools. We carefully track your inner development and how inner development seamlessly coordinates with changes in your life, relationships, work, and spiritual ideals.



Silence: The Mystery of Wholeness by Robert Sardello

Heartfulness by Robert Sardello

The Art of Cultivating Spiritual Imagination (monograph) by Robert Sardello

A Soul Way of Forgiveness (monograph) by Robert Sardello

The Gospel of St. John as a Foundation of Spiritual Psychology by Robert Sardello



We meet for an hour and a half session once a week. Time is mutually worked out. In the session, after we have worked three or four sessions with the soul/spirit assessment, we will do practices of entering the Silence, for a time, then move into practices of Heartfulness and then into practices of the Stillness, and then bring these into a creative synthesis. Approximately half of the time of a session involves doing a contemplative practice and working with speaking that deepens. The rest of the session concerns therapeutic work with particular regions of your life in relation to spiritual development and self-knowledge.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST: We meet once a week for 25 weeks. At the end of that time, it is possible to meet for a second 25 weeks of both of us feels that would be important to proceed with the development of Spiritual Therapeutics.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST: $100 per one and a half hour session, a total of $2500. If paid in full, the cost is $2250. If paid by the session, each session must be paid for 24 hours in advance. We agree on a session time, preferably the same time each week. Between sessions, daily work with the contemplative practice and doing the readings are required.
