Dr. Juliette Lachemeier, Ph.D.
Dr. Juliette Lachemeier holds bachelor and master’s degrees in Metaphysical Science and a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Counselling. Juliette is a qualified clinical nutritionist, a recognised editor with the QLD Society of Editors, and a former accountant with a degree in economics and commerce. She lives in Tropical Far North Queensland, comfortably nestled between the Great Barrier Reef and ancient rainforests of coastal Australia.
Having been a nutritional science clinician for many years, as well as an explorer in the field of metaphysics and altered states of consciousness, the main focus of Juliette’s postgraduate doctoral work was to deliver scientific arguments in support of cultivating a relationship to Spirit—free from dogma and denomination.
Juliette believes that despite our unprecedented advances in technology, education, economic growth and material wealth, we have never been so stressed, paranoid and disconnected from nature and life’s greater meaning. She encourages people to align themselves, through certain scientifically substantiated contemplative, ecstatic and rhythmic practices, with a greater transpersonal awareness. This greater awareness then acts as a guide out of the fear and sense of separation we have made both within our own, and the collective, consciousness.
Her main research aim was to investigate scientifically validated practices to assist with cultivating this greater transpersonal awareness. More specifically, she wanted practices suitable to and more easily integrated with our present-day culture and demands. The clinician in Juliette was also very keen to unite science with spirituality, and demystify much of what is often perceived as ‘occult’ or ‘devilish’ in order to make valuable practices more accessible to the everyday person, rather than those with the luxury of indulging in monastic/ashram settings.
Juliette’s own life journey, together with her clinical observations of others’ frustrations with eastern and western spiritual/religious practices and teachings, gave rise to both her master’s thesis on The Metaphysics of Consciousness and subsequent doctoral work – where she conducted clinical and transpersonal research into contemplative, ecstatic and rhythmic practices for awakening to Spirit. However, it was the shock of motherhood to her previously ordered work, life and spiritual practices that became the driving catalyst for all resulting research. Research that led her deeply into the psyche of countless other women-cum-mothers, who were also struggling to integrate their former spiritual practices into their irreversibly changed lives, bodies, brains and souls.
To this end, she has successfully researched both trophotropic (relaxation) and ergotropic (arousal) pathways and practices for awakening to a more transcendental awareness. Her research is complete with scientific, neurological, physiological and psychological substantiation, while also making note of the possible contraindications of each practice; considering certain clinical subgroups within modern-day western societies.
As well as being a clinician, Juliette also devotes much time to conducting research in numerous scientific, metaphysical, economic and sociological fields. At present, she is also the managing editor for The Erudite Pen, and works as a freelance writer and editor. You can find out more about her at www.theeruditepen.com.
Juliette is very passionate about the use of writing to convey thoughts, ideas, illumination, inspiration and education. She would be more than happy to assist any of her fellow graduates, or prospective graduates, with editorial assistance.
