Roger J. Woolger, PhD, is a British-bornJungian analyst, past-lives therapist and creator of Integral Regression Therapy. Roger is internationally known as a pioneer in the area of transpersonal psychology. He holds degrees from Oxford and London Universities and the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland. His book on past life therapy, Other Lives, Other Selves, is considered a definitive work in the field and has been translated into Spanish, Portuguese, German and Dutch. Roger lives in suburban Maryland and teaches throughout North America, Europe and South America.
He began his practice with conventional Jungian therapy methods, including dreamwork, but through this began to discover images which seemed to be past life memories. He found a therapeutic and spiritual value in this method, which entails trauma release, psychodrama, deep body therapy, Tibetan "bardo" work and shamanic spirit release. This synthesis is today called Deep Memory Process. Woolger has been a professor at Vassar College, the University of Vermont, and Concordia University, Montreal, and led workshops at the New York Open Center, Omega Institute and Esalen Institute. He runs training programs in the US, UK, Holland, Portugal, Germany, and Brazil.
He is a co-founder of the European Association for Regression Therapy (EARTh) with Hans Ten Dam and others. He was honorary president of the International Deep Memory Association (IDMA) and directed European conferences for it on spiritual healing: "Regression and Shamanism" (Portugal, 2006); "War and Human Memory" (Austria, 2006); "Exile and Longing to Return" (Ireland, 2008). He is founder and director of O Instituto para O Psique e as Tradicoes Espirituais in Salvador, Brazil, 2008.
