What is Holoscendence?

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).

Integral Ethics for a Better You

In this article, I will provide a brief introduction to the practice of integral ethics. One way to define the word “integral” is as “comprehensive.” Therefore, the benefit of taking an integral approach to the ethical dilemmas we may face is that an integral approach allows us to honor the complexity of these situations. When we make decisions that embrace and honor complexity, we are more likely to experience positive outcomes for both us and the other people in our world. The integral ethical-decision making model and process that Dr. Tim Black and I developed, with guidance from Ken Wilber, facilitates the wise embrace of complexity by parsing ethics into four key domains that correlate to the interior and exterior of reality, as well as its individual and collective aspects. Analyzing ethics in this way gives us ethics itself, as well as morals, behaviors and laws. The relationship between these four domains is perhaps best understood with the assistance of visuals, as follows:
