Join Loch and Craig Holliday, from the Association for Spiritual Integrity, as they explore the student-teacher relationship, ethics, and having a mature relationship with the spiritual path.
Loch explains the dangers of projection, transference, and countertransference as they relate to the spiritual path. He also discusses the various traps and detours on the spiritual path, such as hiding out in the “witness protection program, psychological underpass and cognitive overpass.”
Loch is a member of the Association for Spiritual Integrity, and Craig Holliday is one of the Association’s founders.
