Shift Out of Ego Into Awake Self - Workshop Recordings

An Advanced Self-Paced Workshop in Effortless Mindfulness and IFS

Get Instant Lifetime Access to the Recordings

Calling all IFS and parts work practitioners and enthusiasts who are looking for a mindfulness approach to deepen their personal work and their work with clients. This immersive experience is designed for people who are passionate about both IFS and Effortless Mindfulness and want to fuse these two practices.

Step Out Of Endless Struggle & Into The Freedom of Self Essence

Do you or your clients face these things when doing parts work?

  • Do you find it difficult to access Awake Awareness or Self energy?
  • Do you struggle to get out of the contraction of your mind
  • Do you feel caught in a cycle of taking one step forward and two steps back.
  • Do you continually get blended with judgmental and shame-based parts?
  • Did you have a glimpse or taste of Self but feel frustrated by your inability to feel grounded in it?

Instead of simply relieving the symptoms of temporary suffering, wouldn’t you like to relieve existential anxiety at the Source by living from your Awake Self?

In this advanced 2-Day workshop, you’ll learn how to step through different doorways to directly access your Self Essence. You’ll learn a step-by-step approach to shift through the Five Levels of Mind.

In the process, you won’t merely discover Awake Awareness.

You’ll also learn essential tools to ground and root yourself in a new operating system of Self Essence so that you can navigate your life with more equanimity, clarity, and purpose.

Join veteran psychotherapist and meditation teacher Loch Kelly for this timeless and transformative journey out of the limited confines of your head and into the boundless and embracing home of your heart.

Learn to return and train to remain so that you can trust–and know–that your ever-present Self is nearer than near as your ultimate medicine.

“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.”

In This Training You’ll Learn:

  • How Effortless Mindfulness is the key to unlocking Internal Family Systems
  • How to distinguish Self from the four most common Self-like parts: When working with different parts and Self, it can be hard to track when a part that seems like Self is present. You’ll learn the subtle cues to look out for and, ultimately, how to go deeper with parts work.
  • How to recognize the felt sense of being blended with your ego manager part during the day
  • Techniques to shift to Self Essence throughout your day
  • New ways to know Self as clearly as you know parts
  • How to relate with the ego manager part and shift through the stages of Self

Welcome from Loch Kelly

Do you ever wonder how some people stay unshakably rooted in their highest self? I did too.

And that’s why I developed Effortless Mindfulness—a simple, yet advanced form of “meditation in action” that you can do anytime and anywhere.

It starts with accessing you’re already awake peace of mind and wise heart. And then it helps heal the fearful parts of us so we can live from creative “awake loving flow.”

In Effortless Mindfulness, you shift from focusing on the contents on your mind to the unbound context of awareness itself.

You open to what or who is aware of these contents.

This seemingly subtle shift can heighten your sense of freedom, joy, and wisdom — similar to experiencing the beauty of nature, making love, or being in the zone while playing a sport or creating a work of art.

Transitioning from everyday mind to awake awareness, you become more energetically embodied and interconnected with everything.

Your awakening begins with a glimpse…

A glimpse is not a meditative state, a positive thought, an altered state, or a belief. Instead, a glimpse is a shift of center, from an ego-identified location of perception into a new way of seeing from Being.

You don’t need advanced Zen and Tibetan meditation techniques to do this.

Instead, I will teach you how to make this shift through practical micro-meditations, which you can do with your eyes open — any time of day.

Effortless Mindfulness is a simple set of teachings rooted in non-dual wisdom traditions, modern science, and psychotherapy.

And I created Effortless Mindfulness to help seekers like you become aware of and embody different expressions of awake awareness.

This 2-day training is your opportunity to experience the profound shifts in consciousness available to you through Effortless Mindfulness.

Join me, and I’ll show you how!

Immersed In Self, Healing Your Parts

Through a series of powerful glimpses and meditative exercises, Loch will guide you through the five levels of mind to the deepest dimensions of your being and into your true nature.

From this ground of Awake Loving Flow, you will practice healing and unburdening the parts that habitually overtake you. 

Previously, in Part 1 of this series on the fusion of Effortless Mindfulness and IFS, we focused on Self Leadership. 

In this workshop, we’ll start at the foundation of Being and give you tools to access Self, moving from Self Essence to Self Energy. Once we’re firmly grounded in that depth of Self, we’ll then begin to practice working with Parts from the grounded and centered space of Self Essence.

Through the contemplative technology of Effortless Mindfulness, you’ll find that this elegant approach to healing and unburdening parts is like a seamless shortcut compared to other parts’ work approaches.


In many developmental and therapeutic models, we try to reduce suffering by changing our thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, or circumstances. This is often the basis for behavioral, cognitive, and analytic approaches to reducing suffering. 

Through Effortless Mindfulness, instead of trying to add or subtract thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, you’ll actually learn how to shift your awareness into a deeper and more expansive level of mind with a completely different view of the same burdensome parts and conditions.

5 Levels of Mind & Self

We’ll cover the 5 Levels of Mind & Self. Here’s a high level view of this system.

  1. Everyday Mind – Parts Based View

Everyday mind is experienced as what you normally think of as “me”, including your thoughts, emotions, and sense perceptions.

  1. Mindful Witness – Self-like Part

Mindful witness is experienced as the ability to step back from everyday mind and be located in mindful awareness, the meditator, or an observing ego. 

  1. Awake Aware Mind — Self Essence

Awake-aware mind looks from a big-sky witness of spacious awareness to see subtle mind and everyday mind, as well as the world.

  1. Simultaneous Mind — Self Energy
Simultaneous mind experiences ultimate reality and relative reality at the same time. The ocean of awake awareness experiences all energy and form as its own waves.
  1. Awake Loving Flow — Self-Leadership
Awake Loving Flow is free of the location of any particular witnessing self. In this level of mind, we feel connected and protected, vulnerable and courageous, and motivated to create and relate. 

And in this advanced workshop, we’re going to spend the majority of our time focused on the two critical transitions from levels three to four and four to five. 

Awake Aware Mind (Self Essence) >> Simultaneous Mind (Self Energy) >> Awake Loving Flow (Self leadership)

Why? Because this is how we’re going to heal and unburden the parts that plague us and hijack our minds.

Through this workshop, you’ll begin the process of installing a new operating system for your identity. After learning how to move through these levels of mind and work with parts from Self, you’ll have access to a completely new perspective on your life. 

One that is stabilized in the warm and loving embrace of your own heart.

In short, we’ll be moving from Being to Becoming. And with each step along this path, Loch will teach you how to do this on your own.
