A Psychologist’s Extraordinary Journey into the Realms of Sub-Personalities, Spirits, and Past Lives
When clinical psychologist Tom Zinser started working with multiple personality patients, he had no way of anticipating where his work would ultimately lead.
Using hypnosis, Zinser learned how to communicate directly with the sub-personalities that, he eventually learned, exist even in healthy individuals. Oftentimes this therapeutic technique would lead to healing and psychological integration. But other times, it would lead to confusing or frustrating results. While he made substantial progress, Zinser also reached a professional impasse. Read more
The breakthrough came when Zinser was approached by Katharine Mackey, a secretary in his office, who channeled a spirit named Gerod through automatic writing. Gerod, it seemed, was interested in communicating with the psychologist.
Zinser approached the suggestion of “meeting” Gerod with a cautious but curious mind, only to be astonished by the clinically useful information that Gerod provided. Gerod claimed the ability to see directly into the souls of Zinser’s clients, and provided very specific guidance on how to help each one. Equally important, Gerod sketched out a map of the human soul, its structure, and destiny, far wider than models provided by clinical psychology.
What started out as an experiment turned into an amazing fourteen-year collaboration with more than 650 sessions between Gerod and Dr. Zinser. These sessions enabled Zinser to breach the impasse, guiding his clients to integration at a much deeper, spiritual level. The collaboration also lead the author to a wider understanding of the soul’s structure and journey, explained in this book.
Soul-Centered Healing is not a book about channeling, but about the importance of seeing our own psyche in a larger context. This compelling, mind-opening account — sure to be controversial — reveals the landscape of a larger psychic and spiritual reality, of which we are a part.
From the Foreword
“Books that are far ahead of their time are considerably harder to assess because they often challenge the very foundations on which we stand. For that reason they tend to make us profoundly uncomfortable, even angry. They don’t continue the conversation we were having but begin a new conversation in new territory, importing new assumptions that challenge conventional wisdom. Soul-Centered Healing by Thomas Zinser is such a book. It is an important book that is far ahead of its time. In Soul-Centered Healing, Zinser takes his readers on a spiritual journey… initiates the reader into the same mysteries he was initiated into. …It is a rich and rewarding journey, a book far ahead of its time but hopefully a book whose time has come.”

The Practice of Soul-Centered Healing,
Vol. 1: Protocols and Procedures
The Practice of Soul-Centered Healing is written for hypnotherapists who wish to practice or incorporate certain methods of Soul-Centered Healing into their own practice.
In his first book, Soul-Centered Healing, Tom Zinser told the story of his fifteen-year collaboration with a spirit entity named Gerod. That collaboration resulted in a distinctive method of healing that engages directly the psychic and spirit dimensions of the self and soul. Soul-Centered Healing recognizes that there are conditions, entities, and forces operating at unconscious levels that can be a source of problems and difficulties.
The Practice of Soul-Centered Healing is a companion volume to Soul-Centered Healing that presents the basic protocols and procedures for working in these unconscious dimensions. Dr. Zinser discusses each protocol and gives specific instruction on how to implement them. Along with this instruction, he presents a wealth of examples drawn from verbatim transcripts of client sessions. This book is for therapists who are encountering these deeper levels of psyche and soul in their healing work with clients.
From the Foreward
“You have in your hands a book that could revolutionize the way you work with clients… and know that you are now equipped to help people in ways you perhaps did not even dream of when you were starting out.

The Practice of Soul-Centered Healing,
Vol. II: Navigating the Inner World
This book is the concluding volume to The Practice of Soul-Centered Healing. Like Vol. I, it is written for hypnotherapists who wish to incorporate elements of Soul-Centered Healing into their own clinical practice. Soul-Centered Healing is a therapeutic approach developed by Dr. Zinser in a fifteen-year collaboration with a channeled spirit named Gerod. His first book, Soul-Centered Healing, tells the story of that fifteen-year collaboration. Read more
Vol. I and Vol. II are the summation of decades of clinical experience and Zinser’s systematic reflection on that experience. Vol. I focused on the clinical protocols for working with ego-states, past lives, and intruding spirits or other external entities that may be negatively affecting a client. Vol. II presents a deeper and expanded view of Soul-Centered Healing as a spiritual journey as well as a healing process. It covers practical topics such as the importance of note-taking and map-making in facilitating a client’s process. The book describes different phenomena, conditions, and situations that can present during the trance sessions. Some will apply to all clients, such as making sure a client’s higher self is aware of the energy point in the body; others, like dealing with the dark spot, a mirror personality, or retrieving missing parts of a soul, are situations that only present with some clients. Additional protocols and clinical examples are given to help therapists navigate this inner world. Finally, the book concludes with an in-depth case study tracing one client’s healing journey from severe dissociation to living consciously and centered in the present.
