Peter Wilberg (born in London in 1952) is an independent thinker and author of ethnic German and Jewish-German background.
Though he holds an MA in Philosophy and Politics (Oxon, 1994) and in Humanistic Psychology (Antioch, 1980) he has since pursued his lifelong research, work and writing outside the framework of academia and without any form of institutional support or funding.
As well as writing, Peter Wilberg gives individualised philosophical and experiential counselling, mentoring, supervision, teaching, therapy, meditational training and 'life doctoring' at his U.K. home in Whitstable, Kent.
His work has given rise to a wide range of both original philosophical insights and pioneering practices in the areas of phenomenological science and research, therapeutic listening, existential and phenomenological medicine, consciousness studies, the nature of music and tonal awareness, semiotics, non-dual and focusing-oriented therapy, awareness-based 'cognitive therapy', aware and embodied relating, gnosticism, yoga and tantra - leading to both individual and shared, bi-personal meditational and metaphysical experiencing.
The philosophical foundation of Peter Wilberg's work is a new 'field-phenomenology' that he calls 'The Awareness Principle'. This is the recognition that awareness or 'subjectivity' has an essentially universal and field character. As such, it is neither the product of any thing or body nor the private property of any individual 'subject', 'ego' or 'being'. Awareness, in other words, is nothing that is 'yours' or 'mine'. Instead all bodies and all beings are individualised portions and expressions of potentialities latent in a universal awareness field - one that is the very essence of 'the divine'. Every 'being' or 'body', 'thing' or 'phenomenon' therefore, is not just something we are or can be aware of. It also is an awareness or 'consciousness' in its own right -manifesting unique field-patterns and qualities of awareness latent in the universal awareness field that is its source. What is called 'God' then, is neither a being nor Being, but Awareness as such, all-ecompassing and all-pervading.
"The Being of all things that are recognised in Awareness in turn depends on Awareness."
