Dr Carr has a strong background in Ken Wilber’s integral philosophy and uses an integral approach to his work, which means that all levels of a person’s being are acknowledged, and harmonized – from mind and body to spirit and shadow (shadow are parts of ourselves we hide, repress or deny).
With his experience in the spiritual as well as the psychological, he emphasizes the recognition of spiritual bypassing whereby a person tries to bypass the healing of emotional wounds by “using the spiritual (transpersonal) to bypass the personal.”
In other words, this occurs when spirituality becomes a defense mechanism to avoid “dealing with painful feelings, unresolved wounds and developmental needs,” (Masters 2010). Dr Carr works to aid in the awakening process while using his experience in psychotherapy to also heal and integrate the shadow.
