Spiritual Depth psychology: Exploring the Inner Self for Better Well-being

In today’s fast-paced world, it is easy to get caught up in the daily grind and forget to take care of our mental and emotional health. While traditional therapy focuses on the mind and behavior, spiritual depth psychology takes a deeper dive into the soul and the unconscious mind. By exploring our inner selves and connecting with our spiritual essence, we can improve our overall well-being and find a sense of peace and contentment.

So, what is spiritual depth psychology and how does it work?

Spiritual depth psychology is a branch of psychology that integrates spirituality and psychology to help individuals understand and connect with their inner selves. It is based on the belief that we all have a spiritual essence that goes beyond our physical bodies and is connected to universal consciousness. By tapping into this essence, we can unlock a deeper understanding of ourselves, our purpose, and our place in the world.

One of the fundamental concepts of spiritual depth psychology is the idea of archetypes or universal patterns of behavior and personality that exist in all humans. These archetypes can reveal hidden aspects of our personality and help us understand our deepest fears, desires, and motivations. By exploring our archetypes, we can better understand ourselves and find new ways to improve our mental and emotional health.

Ways to feel better through spiritual depth psychology

Here are some practical ways to incorporate spiritual depth psychology into your weekly therapy routine:

  • Meditation: Meditation is a powerful tool for connecting with our inner selves and tapping into the spiritual essence. Regular meditation practice can help reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep, and increase overall well-being.
  • Journaling: Writing down your thoughts and feelings can be a powerful way to explore your inner self and uncover hidden patterns of behavior.
  • Dream analysis: Our dreams often reveal hidden aspects of our psyche and can provide valuable insights into our unconscious mind. Keeping a dream journal and working with a therapist to analyze your dreams can be a powerful tool for self-discovery and growth.
  • Art therapy: Engaging in creative activities like drawing, painting, or sculpting can help us tap into our inner selves and express feelings and thoughts that may be difficult to put into words.
  • Nature therapy: Spending time in nature can help us connect with the natural world and find peace and tranquility.


Incorporating spiritual depth psychology into your weekly therapy routine can be a powerful way to improve your mental and emotional well-being. By exploring your inner self and connecting with your spiritual essence, you can better understand yourself and find new ways to cope with life’s challenges. Whether through meditation, journaling, dream analysis, art therapy, or nature therapy, spiritual depth psychology aims to help you find a sense of inner peace and contentment.

An Examination of Eco-Art Therapy: A Proposed Natural Modality for Treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Abstract for: An Examination of Eco-Art Therapy: A Proposed Natural Modality for Treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

There exists room for improvement within the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Currently, there is good support that Eco-Art therapy is a viable complementary or alternative therapy treatment method for this condition. Eco-art therapy expands our client’s awareness beyond a focus on the individual or family, or a cultural or social perspective to include the larger ecological systems as a source of both suffering and healing (American Art Therapy Association [AATA], 2014) It gives the therapist and client greater awareness of the context within which they are interacting.

Another aspect of eco-art therapy is that Eco-art therapy is a form of positive psychology. It is a method full of optimism, gratitude, peace, meaning, and purpose. It marries art therapy and ecotherapy into a complex and emerging field (Pike, 2021). Although eco-art therapy is an under-researched and emerging area in the modern field of psychology there is a lot of promising support of its applications in the treatment of PTSD. Eco-art therapy can be described as combining concepts from ecopsychology with concepts of art therapy to create a unique modality that applies beyond the Eurocentric norms of many other modalities. Art therapy can help with  negative emotions, stress responses, restricted affect, depression, anxiety, as well as some somatic responses. Through the containment of the outdoors and increase socialization many of our modern ailments may be alleviated. Adding awareness beyond oneself to include the Earth as a whole creates a deeper understanding of healing and suffering that can empower and validate the client.
