Inner Selves Facilitator is an Energy Coach
This workshop is suitable for practitioners, therapists and coaches or anyone wishing to embrace and align their inner parts to increase self-compassion, self-understanding and psycho-spiritual strength. The experiential nature of the workshop will provide tools for personal and professional practice.
Energetics is at the core of Inner Selves or Voice Dialogue Facilitation.
Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone in their transformational book “Embracing Ourselves” describe the archetypal energy movement within our psyche between Power(Parental Selves) and Vulnerability (Child Selves). Our aim is learning how to channel these selves including our vulnerability through an Aware Ego.
“When we disown our vulnerability we identify with our parental (power selves); identifying with vulnerability ensures victim status—in either case, our vulnerability becomes quite difficult to resolve. Learning to be aware of and experience our vulnerability, and then learning how to express it through our aware ego, therefore, is one of the most significant tasks we encounter in transformational work.” Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone
This workshop explores the energetics or flow of this archetypal movement between power and vulnerability. Through energetic exercises, channelling, experiencing the energetic imprints of various inner selves, we can master the energetics of opposites on the power-vulnerability continuum of selves and patterns of being.

Each inner self-has a unique energy signature and its own methods of interacting in relationships. An inner self or sub-personality is often defined as having a specific energy pattern linked to the entire energy essence and expression of personality.
Voice Dialogue that was created by psychologists Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone in the 1970s. Voice Dialogue is a profound awakening process that brings real-time awareness to the many parts or Selves that make up what we identify as our personality.
We often refer to parts or Inner Selves in our everyday language when we say “A part of me feels/wants —-“
Each Inner Self is unique.
It is a dynamic aspect of our psyche that has his/her own personality, interests, thoughts, feelings, opinions and energies. An Inner Self is born in response to life experiences, family dynamics and the developmental environment.
These Selves exist whether we are conscious of them or not.
Each Inner Self has a distinct energy pattern.
Not only do our sub-personalities or inner selves have distinct thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviours. They also have a distinct energy pattern that animates and can be observed in its presentation and physical body.
Working with the Inner Selves can open the potential for resolving inner conflict, understanding emotional reactivity, exploring impulsive parts, transforming limiting beliefs and the inner critic, reconnecting to authentic magical child parts. All of this can increase resilience, compassion and emotional intelligence. It can support us to develop practical tools that can encourage effective inner and interpersonal communication. Facilitation can discover the capacity to choose actions rather than reacting to old patterns of behaviour and reveal the hidden parts of you that can be retrieved to support you now. Often the work of Voice Dialogue helps find the language that can express and explore the experiences, feelings and beliefs of Selves without judgment or threat.
As Inner Selves are brought to consciousness, they can become the source of greater self-knowledge, compassion and understanding. This can give us the capability and inner resources to operate in our lives with more balance, choice, empowerment and awareness.
This workshop is not suitable for anyone suffering from severe depression, hallucinations, bi-polar disorder, psychosis, compulsive or obsessive disorder, or any other severe and self-limiting mental health condition.
