The InnerPathic Process came to life based on a foundation of beliefs. These beliefs are philosophical, psychological, and spiritual. The core belief is “ontological” –that all people are pulled towards their potential. That this pull forces internal conflict and questioning of the nature of life, the meaning of existence, the existence of something greater, God, and the very purpose of all things.


It is this pull towards greatest potential that creates enough discomfort to force persons “within” and towards “discovery.” As is fitting, the meaning of the name philosophy comes from the Greek, “love of wisdom” a core part of the nature of The InnerPathic Process ---this working towards the discovery of “inner wisdom” which some call “intuition.”

Without a firm grounding in a philosophical foundation, therapeutic theory and application has no value or relevance. Furthermore, The InnerPathic Process stands on the ground of Existential and Phenomenological thought. Which in turn leads directly to the major premise of The InnerPathic Process---Listening to “The Call of The Soul” –this will guide each person towards their own power, wisdom, and answers within their “Highest Good” (Best Interest).

What is Philosophy?

  • Philosophy is a comprehensive system of ideas about human nature and the nature of the reality we live in. It is a guide for living, because the issues it addresses are basic and pervasive, determining the course we take in life and how we treat other people.— Ayn Rand, Philosophy, Who Needs It (p. 2)


  • Philosophy “studies the fundamental nature of existence, of man, and of man's relationship to existence. … In the realm of cognition, the special sciences are the trees, but philosophy is the soil which makes the forest possible."


What are Existentialism and Phenomenology??

  • Existentialism is a philosophy concerned with finding self and the meaning of life through free will, choice, and personal responsibility. The belief is that people are searching to find out who and what they are throughout life as they make choices based on their experiences, beliefs, and outlook.


  • In the analytic tradition, philosophers attempt (often in vain) to understand the inherent reason and logic underlying existence. Existentialism grew out of Phenomenology---which is the call to examine life as it is experienced in the “here and now.”


  • There is a clear belief in both schools of thought that the individual can define the self.


  • These philosophies state that introspection can lead to a metaphysical transformation. As can be seen from this process, there is an overlapping connection between metaphysical philosophy and spirituality.


  • The belief that philosophical and psychological inquiry can help answer the big and important questions, not only leads to the belief of “self-responsibility,” it leads to expansion of self and “consciousness.”


  • These questions ask about: The existence of death, the meaning of human existence, the place of God in human existence, the meaning of value, interpersonal relationship, the place of self-reflective conscious knowledge of one's self in existing.
