About Michael Damian
I consider my life an adventure in consciousness. Outwardly, the adventure has been enriched by a love of travel, literature, music and art. Inwardly, it was marked by a life-changing shift of awareness and perspective that took place in 2006. Since that time I have endeavored to share an integral, divine vision of human nature that I believe is essential for experiencing true healing, love and happiness.
Sharing the Gift of a Self-Actualized Life
I help people around the world live from conscious presence, understand themselves and infuse their relationships with a higher love. I am a highly empathic, intuitive and strong ally for your authentic self to emerge from unconscious patterns of disempowerment.
Throughout my life I've been drawn toward self-knowledge and spirituality. During my university years I studied in Amsterdam, worked at a foreign policy thinktank in Washington DC, and then lived in London after graduating. Later, while working as an editor at National Geographic in Washington DC, I discovered the work of Carl Jung and found my calling as a depth psychologist.
My doctoral training in clinical psychology included spiritual studies. In 2006, after many years of practicing conscious presence, I experienced a life-changing shift of consciousness. This brought unprecedented peace of mind, inner silence, energetic opening, and intuitive insight. I describe this shift in detail in my book, The Art of Freedom: A Guide to Awakening.
I believe our spiritual goal is to actualize the soul's love, wisdom, creativity and joy through the often challenging material play of Life. Once we have deeply realized our conscious nature, our becomes a reflection of the essential self.
My work is devoted to helping people navigate this sacred inner process.
The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.
- Carl Jung
We have an inner life and an outer life. The inner life is mainly concerned with developing awareness, love and wisdom. These qualities integrate the psyche, improve our relationships and allow our most authentic self to express its gifts in the world.
Whether you are more introverted or extraverted, in your 20s or 60s, I am here to help you unlock the treasure of your true self so that you can live your best life. The main way I do this is by listening. When you are deeply listened to, you will learn to really hear yourself, to know what is true for you and what to do about it. This is true empowerment.
