"Awakening is moving your inner center of gravity from your protective parts to your magnificent essence. Loch’s wonderful book not only makes you realize that such a shift is possible, but provides exercises to help make it happen." --Richard C. Schwartz, Ph.D., Developer, Internal Family Systems model of psychotherapy

From Ego to Self - Effortless Heart Mindfulness Therapy
Loch Kelly, M.Div. LCSW

The essential Self is who we’ve always been and the wise, loving presence we’ve all been looking for. Self is not your ego, a core state, a subpersonality, an archetype, or a mindful witness. Ego-centeredness is a partial identity that’s the root cause of suffering, from narcissism to low self-esteem. Rather than treating the symptoms of ego-centeredness, we can introduce clients to their essential Self. Effortless Heart Mindfulness Therapy helps clients and therapists discover their already compassionate Self, which welcomes all subpersonalities and transforms even the deepest traumas. In this experiential workshop, you’ll discover how to teach clients to:

  • Move from cognitive mindfulness to effortless heart mindfulness in order to access well-being and transform trauma
  • Go beyond self-compassion to a natural, deep compassion from the Self for all parts
  • Shift from thought-based ego-centeredness to open-hearted Self using methods, such as unhooking from thinking, dropping from head to heart, and opening to awake awareness
  • Transform difficult emotions and repressed, shadow parts by helping clients enhance their true Self’s compassionate, relational capacity

Loch Kelly, MDiv, LCSW, is a psychotherapist, meditation teacher, and author of the award-winning book, Shift into Freedom. Founder of the Open-Hearted Awareness Institute, he teaches internationally and collaborates with neuroscientists at Yale, UPenn, and NYU.
