How to Access and Live from Self

Jan 28 - Feb 02, 2018 Begins in 2 months
with Richard Schwartz & Loch Kelly

The centerpiece of the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model is the Self. Self is not a part, not a state, and not your ego. Instead, Self is knowable as your ground of Being, unity consciousness, unchanging essence, and openhearted awareness. Accessing Self, and welcoming all parts, is the ultimate medicine. Through his writing and teaching Loch Kelly has become an internationally known leader in helping people quickly access Self throughout their daily lives.
