About

Your attempts to live a life closer to the essence of who you are, to find the heart and soul of yourself is a quest I too am on. Realizing that in our attempts to ward off pain our familiar self became a walled-in fortress, we seek a way out and a way forward to who we really are. My own search for reconnection to the spirit of my life has taken the form of being a psychotherapist to those trapped in that fortress and, as a result, feeling more and more unreal.
I have been deeply influenced by Carl Jung, and the many Jungian thinkers who carried forward his work. It is important to me to find and reach those of you who can discover something vital, familiar, and possibly even sacred in your own depths.
The videos on my website. michaelgeis.com, are my most impassioned discourses on the subject of coming alive in the midst of psychotherapy. They all reveal my reaching out beyond psychology to the arts, especially to poems, as avenues to self-healing.
