About the Event
Led by Ratnadevi (Luise Holtbernd PHD), Certified Coach, Mindfulness teacher, Trainer & Supervisor.
Who is running the inner show? Ideally, we’d like our most integrated, wise and compassionate Self to be in charge, but often less mature parts of ourselves take over, to the detriment of our own and others’ wellbeing and happiness. We are all familiar with the ‘inner critic’; other parts can be named the ’pusher’, the ‘pleaser’, the ‘procrastinator’, the ‘taskmaster’ and there are many more, all playing important roles in the psyche.
Many of them have a protective function and other parts are ‘exiled’, less conscious wounded child parts. It can be immensely liberating to recognise that we are not our parts. We can un-blend from them, listen to them and understand their positive intent. We even thank them. Their methods may be out-dated and counter-productive, but they hold important values for us. We don’t try to change the parts, and this form of radical acceptance can lead to profound and lasting change. Paradoxically, by separating out the different parts, we lay the groundwork for new levels of personal integration that can then lead to confident and inspired expression in action.
The work is deep and safe, as we always acknowledge and respect the parts that have any concerns. This mindful coaching approach builds on Hal and Sidra Stone’s work with Voice Dialogue and Richard Schwartz and Jay Earley’s process of Internal Family Systems (IFS).
This weekend is the third and last of a course and it can also be done as a stand-alone module.
