What if you were receiving all the help you need, all of the time, but you just didn't know it?
What if everything that arises within your mind, from daydreams to random thoughts to song lines, were profoundly appropriate and personalised demonstrations of what you have misunderstood about yourself and reality?
What if the dreams you experience at night, and the dramas you endure in your life during the day, were extraordinary plays that show you the logical outcome of the mistakes you have made in the past, and whose appearance is a beneficial opportunity for you to lay down the unnecessary burden that comes about as a result of your false understanding?
This hypothesis we call the providential nature of the psyche, and it's the description of the nature of the mind that arises out of using Wiser Dialectic Practice to resolve personal problems.
What is Wiser Dialectic Practice?
Wiser Dialectic Practice is a drawing meditation, where you take an instance of a daydream, dream or drama, and create a complete image of the instance on a single sheet of paper so you can reflect on it. By using stick figures, symbols and words, and describing the states of mind that were involved, it becomes possible to see for oneself the true nature of a current problem for the first time, and even trace it back to its origin to resolve it.
An interactive form with videos to guide you through each step of Wiser Dialectic Practice is available for free in the master class. All you have to do is create an account, but there's no need to subscribe to the master class (which is $10 a month) to use the form indefinitely.
What kind of problems can I resolve with the practice?
There are two types of problem:
Particular or personal problems, which include problematic or self-destructive behaviour (addiction, self-sabotage, etc) and many problems that are often described as mental health issues (anxiety, depression, neuroticism, etc), and
Universal or existential problems, which include challenging or overwhelming spiritual experiences, and attendant negative emotional and mental states, including panic, depersonalisation, and uncomfortable energetic phenomena. You can read more about this here.
Using the practice, it's possible to look at an actual occurrence of one of these problems, usually as a drama, but it's also possible to simply look at one's daydreams or dreams to explore the most important problem you face at any given time, hence the hypothesis of the providential nature of the psyche.
Do you have any proof that Wiser Dialectic Practice actually resolves problems for people?
Here are the preliminary results from our pilot research program:
"On average, participants report fully resolving three problems that had been negatively affecting their lives, and making progress on a further three. Almost one third resolved five problems as well as making progress on others."

What's the best way for me to learn Wiser Dialectic Practice?
Although the interactive form with step-by-step videos is available for free, forever, the best way to approach the dialectic practice is through the master class, as it provides the perfect opportunity for your problems to sabotage something personally meaningful, such as learning how to meditate or practice awakening. By capturing the distractions and daydreams that arise during sitting meditation, you get to test the hypothesis that everything that arises in your mind is beneficial for yourself, before later having a structured introduction to looking at dreams, dramas, the first appearance of a problem, and the dialectical question: a way to ask a question about absolutely anything, and get the most profound answer.
