Eine qualitative Studie zur Psychologie der nondualen Bewusstseinserforschung."
Through a life-threatening illness and an intense death experience in the age of 18, he realized the immortal nature of consciousness. He questioned and explored the ephemeral nature of the universe and who we are in truth, beyond the transient forms. After recognizing our nondual nature and exploring different dimensions of consciousness, he studied the wisdom-teachings and psychologies from East and West. He met and studied with many masters, transpersonal psychologists and awakened therapists and received teachings and deeper initiations.
In addition to the study of psychology and psychotherapeutic methods, he received authorization and teaching qualifications in nondual wisdom traditions. As a transpersonal und integral psychologist Hannes teaches and works free of traditions and their restrictions. He studied psychology at the Carl-von-Ossietzky Universität. The University of Oldenburg was at his time of studying the leading university for transpersonal consciousness studies in Germany. His Majors were Cognitive Science and Psychology in health care, which includes clinical and health psychology.
Hannes Michel is authorized Enneagram teacher, completed a 3-year training in transpersonal therapy methods and developed psychological trainings and therapeutic skills that allow immediate dissolution of fixed behaviors. His research focus includes the topics spirituality, meaning of life, unconditional self-love, enlightenment and nondual consciousness.
Through his ability to meet people where they are, and to attune to their psychological and spiritual experience, he is able to help his clients directly, and he honors all spiritual paths. His greatest gifts are integrating the essence of timeless wisdom and the insights of modern psychology, guiding people through their emotional blockages into their true nature.
