Deep inner listening is a gentle, step by step process that teaches us how to come into direct contact with all aspects of ourselves. With a soft attentiveness, we discover that even places inside that first appear critical or resistant are part of a system of inner parts that are all actually working to help protect us in the best way they know how and for really good reasons. The ineffective ways the parts interact with each other and the lack of clear awareness we have about these interactions, keep us from feeling free to choose that which makes us truly happy and we find ourselves repeatedly feeling defeated and stuck in age old patterns of thoughts and behavior. With this skill, we finally see that we are not these parts and they are not our enemy. By learning how to bring a deep and abiding presence to these challenging inner places, a new, more harmonious relationship is naturally formed, allowing us to choose our behaviors, to show up in the world more authentically and available to ourselves and others. The body guides the pace and direction of the listening so the process is naturally gentle and uniquely right for each person. This process can be integrated with other healing modalities such as energy work, yoga, art therapy, meditation…
Discover how this kind of listening helps shift many issues such as action blocks, compulsive behaviors, codependency, feelings of unworthiness, fear of intimacy and aloneness, critical voices, depression and anxiety, unresolved grief and unlived desires. Deep listening is useful with people who: feel overwhelmed with intrusive thoughts and feelings during meditation, have difficulty making decisions, experience health challenges, would like a practice to use with or between psychotherapy/healing sessions, are not feeling able to live up to their full potential, desire a greater self-awareness.
This stand-alone class will give participants a basic understanding of how our inner relationships operate as well as some practical tools in which to listen inside. Class 2 and 3 is for those who wish to deepen their understanding of our inner parts and awareness of presence and extend the listening practice, supporting each other in this process, which is typically done in pairs. There will be opportunity for an ongoing group to meet for continued experience. Included in the price of this beginning workshop is an optional 45 minute one to one session that will allow you to experience what deep inner listening can do for a particular life issue you would like to know more about.
