Kylea Taylor, M.S., LMFT (CA MFC #34901) developed and now teaches InnerEthics®, a self-reflective, self-compassionate approach to ethical relationships for therapists and practitioners. She wrote The Ethics of Caring: Finding Right Relationship with Clients and has been writing and teaching about ethics for three decades.
In ordinary coaching or therapy, it is relatively easy to remember ethical guidelines, codes and laws. Yet when we are sitting for people who are experiencing extra-ordinary states of consciousness, the intensity often requires the additional ethical alertness of self-inquiry.
InnerEthics® Awareness Tools help us gently identify motivations, fears, biases, conflicts of interest, and ethically precarious relational situations before these result in behaviors that might compromise a client’s healing or expansion.
Working with Stanislav Grof, M.D. as a Senior Trainer in the Grof Transpersonal Training throughout the 1990s, Kylea facilitated and observed thousands of extra-ordinary state-of-consciousness sessions. She began her study with Stan and Christina Grof in 1984.
Kylea assisted Grof and Jack Kornfield, Ph.D. in workshops combining Holotropic Breathwork® and Vipassana meditation, and she facilitated Holotropic Breathwork® in residential addiction treatment. She is the author of The Breathwork Experience, Considering Holotropic Breathwork® and the editor of Exploring Holotropic Breathwork®.
Kylea has produced a series of pre-recorded InnerEthics® video courses for professionals interested in psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy or helping clients to integrate profound experiences. These courses feature a video lecture, InnerEthics® Awareness Tools, reading, case stories, and a Course Materials Booklet. CEs are available. Offered in partnership with Psychedelic Support Education.
