Awareness in Action
Join Loch Kelly and Craig Holliday from the Association for Spiritual Integrity as they discuss in great detail the student-teacher relationship, ethics and having a mature relationship with the spiritual path. Loch Kelly explains with clarity and wisdom the dangers of projection, transference, countertransference as they relate to the spiritual path. He goes on to explain the various traps and detours on the spiritual path such as hiding out in the “witness protection program, psychological underpass and cognitive overpass.”
With humility and great wisdom, Loch offers a clear map on awakening and integration in a loving, healthy, adult, mature way. Loch was trained both as a psychologist as well as Tibetan Buddhism.
Loch is a member of the Association for Spiritual Integrity and this is an interview with one of the founders Craig Holiday.
