Accessing Self Reveals Motivation for Action
Loch Kelly, M.Div. LCSW
In this workshop, you will learn contemporary versions of ancient wisdom practices related to IFS therapy to access your true Self in order to discover a new source of the motivation for action. In our ongoing journey of unburdening parts, it is very important to distinguish managers and Self-like parts from our Self. Self is grounded in an interconnected, open-hearted awareness, which is different from a detached mindful witness. There are ways of learning a felt sense of Self from which you can find a new motivation for creating and relating. The ground of Self can feel as though you are simultaneously boundless and embodied, free and interconnected, joyful and supported, surrendered and empowered, unconditionally loving and naturally welcoming of all parts. The focus of this workshop is to learn ways to return to Self and remain in Self-leadership while doing therapy and other activities. What is the difference between being motivated from anger or from compassion? We will explore ways of accessing and speaking from our true Self through open-eyed meditations, small shifts of awareness, and partner exercises. These exercises will help distinguish Self-energy from managers, a mindful witness, and Self-like parts.
Loch Kelly, author of the award-winning book, Shift into Freedom: The Science and Practice of Open-Hearted Awareness, offers simple maps and transformational tools that you can learn in a weekend and practice at home.
