The Secret to Accessing Self in IFS


Do You Aspire To Live An Awake And Embodied Self-led Life?

Join renowned psychotherapist and Mindful Glimpses app creator Loch Kelly to unlock the transformative power of Effortless Mindfulness and his unique style of “Self-Led IFS” tools in this rare online training. 

Loch co-taught a number of retreats and workshops with IFS-creator Dick Schwartz and has created an original synthesis that integrates IFS Parts Work with the liberating nondual practice of Effortless Mindfulness.

In this two-day Self-Led IFS Training Online you’ll learn a new psycho-educational approach to experientially navigating your consciousness during the day, seamlessly shifting out of a parts-based view into Self Leadership. You’ll also learn how to guide others in this modality.
Discover and experience the life-changing fusion of IFS principles with Effortless Mindfulness so you can live an awake and embodied Self-led life.

“Loch offers his contemporary ways to ‘glimpse’ our awake nature immediately and heal our wounded parts. When Loch and I have taught together, I have found, for myself and students, that Loch’s practices are amazingly effective.”

~ Richard Schwartz, Phd Founder of IFS

I am a US Army Veteran with severe PTSD…This method works virtually instantly. Thank you so much Loch. Your work is literally saving Veteran’s lives. It saved mine. It is especially wonderful how these teachings dovetail into the Internal Family Systems therapy modality.

The unhooking from thinking is so simple and effective, and I love playing with local awareness. I also found the way Loch works with emotions and with ‘parts’ incredibly helpful and new to me. – Andy J

My practice has been elevated to new levels. Being able to access the place under thoughts and emotional heart to connect to unconditional love and the sense of being held which I have been seeking all my life. Parts practice is an absolute life changer for me, being able to attend and befriend the parts of me that need my love and attention, release of stored energy in my body. Thank you so much, I am overflowing with gratitude. – Lesley, M

I’m 71 years old, a former Catholic priest, a retired science writer, and I’ve been doing deep spiritual work since I was 14. Effortless Mindfulness feels like both a summation and an acceleration of everything I’ve learned. Thank you for making this wonderful experience available. – John H
