Alternative: Working with Healing Intelligence (HI) of a client himself.
In Non Ordinary States of Consciousness NOSC you mobilize this Healing Intelligence.
Healing Intelligence itself finds the area(s) of the psyche that has the strongest emotional charge (energy potential) that is also available at the time for processing and in NOSC that would be the content of the experience. It starts spontaneously, surfaces, and then, in the experience, the symptom is consumed because it transforms (subconscious SKO) into a stream of experiences: some of them biographical, some perinatal, some trans-personal.
Lecture by Stanislav Grof on the “Psychology of the Future” (2009).Stan Grof, M.D., Ph.D. is a psychiatrist with more than fifty years experience researching the healing and transformative potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness. His groundbreaking theories influenced the integration of Western science with his brilliant mapping of the transpersonal dimension. He is one of the founders and chief theoreticians of Transpersonal Psychology and received an Honorary Award for major contributions to and development of the field of Transpersonal Psychology from the Association for Transpersonal Psychology in 1993.

HI itself finds the area(s) of the psyche that has the strongest emotional charge (energy potential) that is also available at the time for processing and in NOSC that would be the content of the experience. It starts spontaneously, surfaces, and then, in the experience, the symptom is consumed because it transforms (subconscious SKO) into a stream of experiences: some of them biographical, some perinatal, some trans-personal.
