Finally, a Bridge between Neuroscience and Psychoanalysis!

New research by  Francois Ansermet, a psychoanalyst, and Pierre Magistretti, a neuroscientist, shows how, rather than polar opposites, both fields are describing the same dynamics in the personality, behaviors, and motivation.

“The physical traces revealed in neuroplasticity correspond to a central tenet of psychoanalysis that life leaves its traces on the psyche as well.”

A common desire for my hypnosis clients is to be able to break through their subconscious resistance to change or a deep seated fear and anxiety. They are aware that something keeps holding them back, but aren’t sure what it is.

With the relatively new perspective of neuroplasticity, the knowledge that the “ever-changing brain is continually shaped by experience, . . . it means that we all have the capacity to change dysfunctional or unhealthy patterns.”

The Swiss researchers’ model suggests that therapy actually “resculpts” old patterns of thinking and reacting into healthier ways of being.

Psychiatrist Phillip Luloff stated that-

“It talks to the hope that one has that there can be change, that the brain is flexible and plastic. And that by the induction of just talk [analysis] they seem to be able show that there is a modification in the structure of the brain, which causes an evolution in perhaps the way the person functions and may lead to the healing in the troubled people with whom we work, including ourselves.”

Research into mind and brain could help patients with psychological disorders.

Strategies for Living

The great postmodern philosopher Gilles Deleuze once said that “a theory is like a box of tools.”  If there is a tool in the box that is useful to you at the moment, pick it up and use it.

If not?  Pack the tools away and stick them in the attic.

After years of academic and exploratory research, we have uncovered and borrowed many of the most effective and dramatic techniques of self transformation from East and West, from ancient Greece to the present.

Our goal is not to provide a single coherent philosophy and set of practices for all people, but instead to make available a wealth of discrete strategies for personal growth that will make life more beautiful and artful, and will lead to power, freedom, joy and pleasure.
