The Farther Reaches of IFS

October 16 & 17, 2021: 10-5 EST

Please Click Here and scroll down to register or be put on the interest list for the next weekend.

Limited to 20 participants

One of the challenges of taking the Stepping Stone or Skills and Competencies courses is that it can be difficult to advance your IFS understanding.

  • How can you find more of your own Self energy?
  • What do you do when a client insists it is not a part talking to them?
  • What is the role of guides and how do we work with them?
  • How do we discern and clear legacy burdens that are intimately entwined with a part’s personal burden?

The goal of this weekend is to develop both the theoretical understanding and practical skill to be comfortable with what might be considered the farther reaches of IFS. All sessions will be recorded and available to you or 1 month.

I have been gifted with permission to use some of the recordings (where appropriate) from the teachers in the IFS Masterclass series: specifically Loch Kelly, Bob Falconer, Kay Gardner and Ed Yeats.

Due to the international nature of the participants we will meet from 10-5 EST, 7-2 PST and 3-10 pm GMT. An early rise for the US/Canadian West Coasters and a late night for the Brits and Europeans. Please plan your nutrition breaks accordingly

After completion of the weekend participants will be invited to join the IFSCA Directory of Therapists. I refer many people to the directory over the course of a week as my practice is closed – it is a good source for referrals.

Saturday 16th: Resourcing from Source; Unattached Burdens

We will meet and check-in briefly in the large group and more thoroughly in breakout pods. The pods are where you will get to share/debrief some of the experiential work.

For the first 3 hours (10-1 EST with a break) we will focus on the teachings of Loch Kelly. You will be invited to consider the source of Self energy and to distinguish between Self Essence, Self Energy and Self Leadership. Through a guided meditation with Loch you will be invited into an experience of Self that increases your access to Self energy and helps to distinguish and appreciate your Self-like managers.

For the “lunch” hour I will open breakout rooms and invite you to the group you first trained with should you wish to hang out and eat for a bit to catch up… or your system may need to take a complete break. The choice is yours

The second half (2-5 EST) of the day will focus on unattached burdens (formerly termed “critters”) and the work of Bob Falconer. You will learn how prevalent these understandings are for world majority peoples and how to discern these entities/energies and clear then from the client’s system

Sunday 17th: Shamanism, Guides and Legacy

After a brief check-in we will look at the teachings of Ed Yeats on Shamanism, its relevance to IFS work and the role of guides.

The second half of Sunday will explore the work of Kay Gardner on Legacy Burdens.

You will learn the discerning questions to help identify the legacy aspect of a burdens and how to clear it both from the client’s system and their lineage; transforming it into a legacy blessing. You will be invited to release a legacy burden of your own through a guided meditation with Kay.

We will then wrap up on the weekend and consider next steps.

This weekend course is only available to students who have participated in the IFSCA programs and will provide the opportunity for seeing your colleagues in a familiar learning environment. Please do not invite others who have not taken the IFSCA courses.
