LIVING WITH PRESENCE

Heal. Integrate. Awaken.

Transformative counseling and spiritual guidance with Dr. Michael Damian

I understand these moments come. Feeling caught in fearful thoughts. Stuck in an old self-image. Feeling strained in your relationship.

 

Something in your psyche is calling to be seen and understood more fully. At times like these, it would be nice to be reminded of your wholeness by a compassionate spiritual mentor and friend. It would be nice to feel supported and seen - both as a spiritual being and an ordinary person facing the usual challenges of life.

If you're ready to make breakthroughs in your life and inner development, I would be honored to be of service.

Talking About What's Real


We need to talk. To understand ourselves and our experience of life, human beings need to talk to each other. We go wrong when we try to figure it all out on our own. 

There is a time for solitude, and there is a time to seek wise counsel.

My passion is helping you find your way toward greater truth, love and higher consciousness. Yes, we've all studied various teachings and practices. But I find that what people really crave, and benefit from, is being able to discuss their own particular blockages, patterns and questions with a compassionate spiritual guide.


 

Deep Support for Personal and Spiritual Transformation

As a depth psychologist and spiritual teacher, my unique role is to help people develop spiritually by mastering their psyche, relationship patterns and life purpose. I help people not only live from conscious presence (inner observing, deep mindfulness and openness of being) but also to come fully into their own wholeness and empowerment on a human level. 

Often, my clients are people who have meditated deeply and are already spiritually open. They've done a lot of inner work, and maybe had some therapy but it didn't go very deep.
They feel pain about their self-image, relationships or life purpose in some way, which the mainstream spiritual teachings don't really address. 
 

Time and time again, my clients report that they feel deeply seen and understood on the human level, while also experiencing a rare spiritual depth and wisdom in our meetings. This is because for the last few decades, I have been devoted solely to depth psychology and self-realization, and counseling people with all kinds of life challenges. This is my calling and my passion. I am a catalyst for higher consciousness and spiritual maturity.  


Clear Intuitive and Empathic Perception


When we first speak, I get an intuitive and laser-sharp sense of what's going on, where the biggest opportunities are and what the next steps forward may be. I then say things that inspire, surprise and frame things in a refreshing way. Possibilities open and vision expands.

 

At all times, I consider you the authority on your life and your being. I may offer intuitions, but I hold them lightly. I am happy to be wrong and to keep listening, to how it really is for you. 

As a psychologist I am in the habit of listening for the whole picture, paying attention to unconscious aspects that may play a key role. It turns out that the little things in life, and about your unique life history and personality, are very precious and play a great role in revealing your Divine nature and path in life. 

I honor the individual dimension as an expression of the Divine. It's not an obstacle unless we relate to it wrongly. I'll put it this way:

 

In Heaven, God has no face. On Earth, God does have a face, and it is yours. 
 

Another aspect of my work is that I am often bringing the spiritual teachings straight down to earth -- cutting through the many myths that surround the quest for enlightenment, love and happiness. I will show you precisely how to discover the essential, divine qualities in your own experience. How to stop distancing yourself from what is already near. 

I can help you bring out the clarity and strength that is there within you. I offer highly transformative and practical insights for living your life from your highest truth and power. 

I'm here to say there is a natural way to higher consciousness and self-actualization. The way to greater life, love and God is through your own heart and soul - not trying to go around or above it. 
Even our silly habits and fixations are innocent when looked at with fresh awareness and compassion. 
 

The way forward starts with being as honest with yourself as you can, and then being honest with someone else about what’s going on. 

Making Conscious What is Unconscious

The great quest of the human journey is to make the unconscious, conscious. It is to replace inner confusion and fragmentation with the direct experience of clarity and meaning. With clarity, love flows and the mind shines with radiant sanity.

What blocks the beauty within us is our false beliefs and the negative feelings and actions these create. If you feel trapped in negative habits and are experiencing self-blame and frustration, let's take a look together at your core beliefs.

To become more conscious we must examine the unconscious ideas that are driving us. That takes paying closer attention and being able to talk about areas of our selves that we have neglected. 

We grow by inner listening - and sometimes we need help hearing what is true amid the noise. 

“For the hero, fear is a challenge and a task, because only boldness can deliver from fear. And if the risk is not taken, the meaning of life is somehow violated, and the whole future is condemned to hopeless staleness, to a drab grey lit only by will-o’-the-wisps.”
