Energetic Metatherapy is an approach to therapy developed by Mexican psychotherapist, Hector Kuri-Cano, Ph.D. Here, in the words of Dr. Kuri-Cano, is the description given of Energetic Metatherapy in the first session of his U.S. training program on June 21, 1991.
In a way, the three levels of process that we follow-the personal process, the interpersonal process, the transpersonal process-are always here. But I think we have to discover if there is some transpersonal process, if that is a reality, not to take it for granted because it is the fashion. I really believe if we live our bodies, if we have a full experience of ourselves, then we train ourselves. And it doesn't matter who you are.
I think, in a way, for Freud, Jung, Reich, for all the great teachers in the world, the key issue was that they really lived. For me that was the key. And that was the training for them. They really lived their lives. They really lived their bodies. They really went into the deepest questions, and they really let those questions into their bodies, like they became pregnant with the questions. And they reached some point of discovery, revelation, or channeling, whatever you want to call it. There was that moment when boom some light. And that was Freud. If you really read Freud, he is exciting when you read him, because he has some kind of artistic way of explaining things although he wanted to be very scientific.
Then for me the key is to really become committed with yourself, and that is the basic issue in this basic training, in the advanced training. In whatever, you know? If you keep really working with yourself deeply, with your body, then I can go with you with that. That's what I know how to do, to go deeply with a person, in order that you can work with yourself. Then that is the approach that I have, to come together to that commitment.
The second approach is to open the communication in the group, the interpersonal approach, and how you can help each other, or how we can help each other. We have to develop that kind of trust and openness and interaction, and really go to the simplicity of the interaction and the encounter. And to the fascination of the encounter, and the fear of the encounter, all the levels that we have in the encounter. And that is the interpersonal.
And the third part again is to really be open to, "Well, we don't know." That's the third part. "We don't know what is happening, really what is happening." And we need to be open to the unknown process.
I think that the best name for God is The Unknown. You cannot name it. You cannot define what you cannot know, ever. But if you can accept that "I don't know," or the unknown process, the uncertainty, that kind of third process, then something happens and we have that wholeness, that kind of energy.
