What is The MetaWay?
The MetaWay™ is the Way of Existential
Metapsychiatry was founded by
path-breaking psychiatrist and compassionate
Thomas Hora.  It is a spiritual teaching
that views mankind solely in a metaphysical
context – that is, in the context of God – and
consciousness as the sole reality in the context of
Cosmic Consciousness.

"God cannot be known without man God and His
[Its] creation are one”
–Thomas Hora, M.D.

The MetaWay sees God as a wholly benevolent
Force, a Principle of Infinite Goodness, Perfect
Love and Supreme Intelligence, which can lift an
individual out of the limitations of the human
perspective in which he normally sees himself and
others, in order to live a peaceful, inspired,
harmonious life and to come to know and realize
his divine identity and potential.   

The work of The MetaWay sheds light on wisdom
teachings through the ages, drawing on the
enlightened ideas of the Buddha and ancient
scriptures, the puzzling koans of Zen Masters, the
insights and direct revelations of Old Testament
Prophets, and the teachings of Jesus Christ,
whose illumined life is seen as our template, a
Way-Show-er for all of humanity.   

The MetaWay exists to answer questions about our
worldly experiences, individually and collectively, to
alleviate the suffering and distress of the human
condition through spiritual understanding, directing
individuals to a unique methodology and system of
thought which is designed to liberate us from the
darkness of universal ignorance and which can,
ultimately, heal us — physically, psychologically,
emotionally and experientially.   

The goal of the Meta work is enlightenment and
the liberation it bestows.  It endeavors to
disentangle us from the struggles we experience
in the human condition in order to come to know a
transcendent existence. It accomplishes this holy
process of spiritualization through a gradual
purification and transformation of consciousness
and its contents. Through study, meditation and
prayer, insight and dialogue, individuals can be
led to a new awareness; a by-product of this new
awareness is a resurrected experience.  

The MetaWay is not a religion or a science.  
It is a teaching that offers a Way of Life which is
transdenominational and transcendent.  It helps
us to see and realize the eternal and
indestructible nature of real Life, gently preparing
us to meet the “deathless death” and “shuffle off
this mortal coil” (Shakespeare) peacefully and
gracefully in an awakened trust, when that
inevitable time arrives.
Who Teaches The MetaWay?
Susan von Reichenbach is a
spiritual guide, writer and
teacher, whose work is
centered in The MetaWay of
Metapsychiatry.  The goal of
The MetaWay is enlightenment
— to guide individuals to the
realization of the purpose of the
human journey and, thereby, to
know the joyous fulfillment of
our individual divine potential and the harmonious
existence this understanding offers us in the here and

Susan has enjoyed an international career as an opera
and concert
singer and has performed in many of the
world’s great opera houses and concert halls to
enthusiastic and critical acclaim.  During these years of
performing and travel, she was studying Metapsychiatry
with its founder, Thomas Hora. Dr. Hora was a seminal
thinker, a pioneering researcher in consciousness and
metaphysics, in a practice that spanned over fifty years
until his passing in 1995.  As her longtime mentor and
spiritual teacher, Dr. Hora inspired and encouraged her
to counsel and teach  Metapsychiatry’s transformational
approach to healing.

“A disciple is not above her teacher…it is enough for a disciple to
[endeavor to] be like her teacher”
 (MT10: 24).

Since editing Dr. Hora's posthumously published book,
a collection of dialogues entitled,
One Mind, she has
written various articles and published two books about
Metapsychiatry's unique system of thought, its
redemptive ideas, inspired insights, and its Prayers and
Principles, calling these
MetaBooks. Fusing her
knowledge of music and experience in a musical career-
path with her deep interest in Metapsychiatry, Susan
gives Lecture/Performances examining the sacred
purpose of music and its healing power, tracing it from
its early appearance in the Vedic Scriptures to present
day super-string theory, incorporating, as well, the fruits
of her dialogues with Dr. Hora about the divine nature of
song and of singing. These Lecture/Performances are
The Cosmic Song.  

Offering spiritual guidance in person or by telephone,
facilitating classes and leading
workshops, Susan calls
her work
The MetaWay.  Susan brings the
compassionate wisdom of this metaphysical approach
to a prison ministry at a Connecticut state correctional
institution, where she teaches receptive inmates. She
also presents concerts at Hospice where she uses the
song platform to teach that real Life is unstoppable  —  
a "Cosmic Song"  —  an "unbroken wholeness in flowing
(physicist David Bohm) from which we can
never be separated and which is uninterrupted by the
experience of dying.   

A graduate of Sarah Lawrence College, Susan is
grateful to have had the opportunity for tutorial studies
with Joseph Campbell, an earlier and influential mentor
(author of
The Hero with a Thousand Faces, The Power
of Myth
, and other treatises on mythology), which gave
her a foundation in cultivating insight into the meaning
of myths, metaphors and parables and helped her to
discern archetypal ideas operating in the race
consciousness, thus awakening in her an interest to
“see” and interpret the “unseen.”
