Holoscendence is an Integral meta-practice of therapy, shadow work, psychological and contemplative development, spirituality, and multidimensional communication. It was developed by Sergey Kupriyanov, MD, Ph.D. in Medicine, a Helsinki-based therapist with 40 years of professional experience, and is taught to students in Finland and Russia (where it is co-taught by Eugene Pustoshkin, a clinical psychologist from St. Petersburg).
Holoscendence is based on seamlessly uniting nonordinary (nonlocal and timeless) dimensions of consciousness, being and communication with more ordinary (local and temporal) states and ways of interaction. It fully enacts body, mind, spirit, and their subtle dimensions in self, intersubjective relationships, and nature.
It is a way to practice heightened states of consciousness dialogically, during daily mundane activities, which brings forth radical transformations to one's self-sense, personal and professional relationships, and a general way of life.
Modus operandi of Holoscendence is abiding in profound silence (which is beyond conceptual mind) and embracive luminous awareness even in processes of speaking and otherwise communicating with others, and its striking feature is the practice of continuous meditative presence with open eyes. Therefore, it can be used in all sorts of contexts, at work, in business and personal life.
Holoscendence is a pragmatic embodiment of the Integral AQAL view (as developed by Ken Wilber), and it also integrates essential aspects of dozens of different approaches, from classical psychotherapies and depth psychology to narrative approaches to communicative skills training to mindfulness and sophisticated bioenergetic approaches.
So far there are only a few certified teachers of Holoscendence in the world due to the specificity of training in the method (which requires a significant degree of personal embodied realization of the essential principles of this approach, which is taught only in direct intersubjective transmission in a long-term transformative process).
