Dr. Leanne Whitney

Transformational Coach
integrating Eastern and Western psychology

Author of Consciousness in Jung and Patañjali

Welcome. Thank you for visiting and connecting.

The main thrust of my work as a healing arts practitioner is well-being. Finding solutions to how we might better live our lives. 

My approach is holistic, integrative, and multidisciplinarian.

Given all the suffering, strife, and clamoring for power we often witness everyday, it seems as if serenity, wholeness, and well-being are not our birthright—but something we must discover. 

If we are up for the challenge, this discovery process will offer us a tremendous opportunity. So while this moment on our planet may be challenging and complex, it is also a very auspicious time ripe with possibility.

Think about where we find roots, or an embryo: Much of Life as we know it…begins in the dark. 

As an author, teacher, and coach, my work aims to bring you possibilities to explore as you navigate a path of transformation and healing.


Leanne Whitney Author, Consciousness in Jung and Patañjali

'Consciousness in Jung and Patañjali is a brilliant analysis of Western and Eastern concepts of consciousness, motivated by the author's personal experience that there's something beyond a materialistic brain-based explanation of consciousness. A deep dive into personal ego, impersonal awareness, dual and nondual realities, and beyond. Highly recommended. - Dean Radin, PhD, Chief Scientist, Institute of Noetic Sciences, USA

Consciousness in Jung and Patañjali (Routledge, 2018) is available in hardback, paperback, and various eprints including Nook and Kindle. To purchase or rent a copy directly from Routledge please click here.

If you are interested in learning about Classical Yoga psychology or deepening your practice, or if you are interested in learning about the places where Jungian psychology and Patañjali's Yoga psychology both converge and diverge, I am offering several online study groups this year.

Whatever form of yoga or healing therapeutics you practice, understanding 

Yoga psychology, and/or Yoga psychology's intersection with Western psychology, will awaken deeper insights, and support your efforts towards alignment and authenticity.

From wherever you are in the world, I hope you will consider relaxing into your own space, grabbing a cuppa, and joining me in exploration of the mind 

and its functions—and visions of healing, wholeness and wellbeing.
