How Does Western Psychology Differ From Other Inner Wisdom Approaches?
Every wisdom approach, with the exception of mainstream psychology, refers to a Higher Self or inner Source as guidance, such as Buddhism’s prajna or Kabbalah’s Tiferet.

Western psychology, for the most part, has been resistant to the concept of the Higher Self as an accepted option in modern treatment.
