Learn how to love and heal our wounded parts by accessing authentic Self and embodying awakening. Loch and Richard C Schwartz, Ph.D., the founder of Internal Family Systems psychotherapy (IFS), discuss how our ego manager is not the enemy but a tired part of us that is happy to be a part of the team when our authentic Self is the new leader. At the end of this IFS podcast episode, Loch offers a guided mindful glimpse micro-meditation to access Authentic Self.

You can now explore all of Loch Kelly’s practices and teachings on the new Mindful Glimpses app. This innovative meditation and wellness app offers daily micro-meditations, step by step programs, and simple-yet-advanced tools for awakening. 

Richard C Schwartz, Ph.D., began his career as a systemic family therapist and an academic. Grounded in systems thinking, Dr. Richard Schwartz developed Internal Family Systems (IFS) in response to clients’ descriptions of various parts within themselves. He focused on the relationships among these parts and noticed that there were systemic patterns to the way they were organized across clients. He also found that when the clients’ parts felt safe and were allowed to relax, the clients would experience spontaneously the qualities of confidence, openness and compassion that Dr. Schwartz came to call the Self. He found that when in Self, clients would know how to heal their parts. A featured speaker for national professional organizations, Dr. Richard Schwartz has published many books and over fifty articles about IFS.
