The Voices of Consciousness
How We Express Our Selves
Voice Dialogue 1 &2: Expressions of Consciousness
with Nancy D. Young, PhD
This workshop is appropriate for psychologists, family therapists, social workers, body workers, business and personal coaches, and anyone who wants to interact more consciously with others.
This training is based on a conceptualization that each of us has, within us, a community of parts, that we are really not a singular "I," but instead are comprised of a collection of "selves." Each one of us is a microcosm of the macrocosm, comprised of many sub-personalities, or archetypes, or energy patterns, like a corporation, an orchestra, or your favorite sports team. Psychology of Selves, Voice Dialogue, and the Aware Ego Process are methods conceptualized and developed by Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone, of discovering and understanding our sub-personalities, each having its own history, thoughts, feelings, motivations, behaviors, and voice.
Do you drive yourself crazy with details and wanting everything to be Just Right?
Do you have a strong Pusher/Driver that makes your Couch Potato mad?
Are you pulled in a million different directions being Responsible for everything and everyone?
Do you have a Worry Wart that keeps you up at night?
Do you get stuck in Rational Mind and wonder what all the “fuss” is about?
Are you a very good Pleaser and then get backlash from your What-About-Me part?
Is your Inner Critic in your head all day long, telling you everything you do is wrong?
We will explore and appreciate our casts of characters and begin to look at how the qualities that annoy us most may be the very “medicines” we most deeply need to understand and develop in our own communities. And we will be strengthening the “Aware Ego” (e.g., the CEO, the Conductor, the Coach) via the Voice Dialogue process.
This training offers an opportunity to explore directly the nature of these interactions within yourself and your own relationships. Experiencing from the inside out will enhance your ability to use this knowledge and method in your own life and, as appropriate, with clients and colleagues.
Do your Selves a solid…
