Rationality and spirituality not only mix, they are intimately tied into one another; spirituality devoid of logic is ignorant and delusional, while rationality devoid of spirit is entropic and lifeless. In order for us to experience a life filled with meaning and direction, the two must be harmoniously balanced by a third ingredient—our emotions. It is our emotional attachments that make us either too logical or too irrational, where we ignore information because it harms our narrow views, or we’ll believe any information because we’re afraid of thinking for ourselves. Emotional process work, also known as shadow work, removes our emotional attachments so that we can regain our balance—to live an expansive life as responsible, thinking individuals. ~Nathan & Aline
Rationality or Spirituality?

I'm a Logocentric philosopher who has created an integrative methodology called the Unity Process, which combines Natural Law, the Trivium Method, Socratic Questioning, Jungian shadow work, and Meridian Tapping—into an easy to use system that allows people to process their emotional upsets, work through trauma, correct poor thinking, discover meaning, set healthy boundaries, and refine their viewpoints. We practice it together in our groups, and in our individual sessions. View all posts by Nathan »
