Tom Thompson is a teacher of Conscious Living.
Conscious Living is an all inclusive way of life. It is based on the Enlightenment Pathways of the East and the Human Potential teachings of the West. It includes the possibility of radical awakening along with the integration of body, emotions, mind and spirit; living skillfully and effectively in this world; and being in loving, empowering relationships.
The teachings of Conscious Living are direct, obvious, and all-inclusive. There is nothing to be believed or accepted, as they are self-evident. They point to the incredible gift and mystery of life, living us here and now, as we are.
In 1964, at the age of fifteen, Tom became a student of human psychology and a practitioner of the yogic pathways and enlightenment traditions. He has the great fortune of training in depth with a number of exceptional teachers in both the enlightenment traditions and western psychology.
While pursuing spiritual realization, Tom had many jobs in many different fields. All were important in terms of his personal growth and evolution, but the most important was working 13 years as a mental health worker in psychiatry.
He also has extensive training and experience in several different therapeutic modalities including hypnotherapy, transactional analysis, energy psychology and HeartMath®.
Tom has been a guest on radio and TV shows. His writings have been published in newspapers, magazines, books and his website blog. He has taught throughout the United States at universities, Hospices, spiritual centers, hospitals, and other places.
