The Deeper Dive

Part 1- Understanding how to safely make your unconscious mind, conscious

  Enroll in Course


Understand what you will learn!

A course I originally designed and delivered at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. 2016

Now: offered to you as a self-paced online course series, combined with private voice dialogue sessions.

You'll learn how we all participate in a common human story as we develop dimensions of our mind called Selves. Selves each have a unique purpose and thought patterns or voices that are unconsciously running our lives.

  • First you'll identify the earliest Selves you unconsciously created to protect you - while you hid-way your inner-child, as you struggled to protect your vulnerability and grow up.

  • Then you'll identify the voices that have become the primary drivers of your psychological car and those you unconsciously forced to ride in the trunk of the car.

  • Next you'll learn about an empowering methodology that will help you manage and transform your ever present inner-critic into a inner-coach.

Finally you'll learn the only one way to understand and manage your Selves and their voices.

After the 4 courses you'll be privately facilitated by a trained/experienced coach

using proven methods to help you interact with, manage and as needed transform the .voices in your head

Voice Dialogue is a proven methodology for gaining a higher, deeper more intimate knowledge of yourselves.

"I was shocked! The part of me I wanted to talk to, would not speak to me. I knew it could, but it was silent. I tried on three occasions, even taking it to lunch in the park. Not a peep!

But when Coach Doris facilitated me, an uninvited voice burst in! It was my Protector/Controller and it said it would not allow me to speak to that weak part I wanted to talk to. Coach Doris agreed to let it speak and explain why.

It said call me "BITCH"(acronym for Be In Total Charge Herself).Then it began to remind me of the past results created by the part of me it would not let me talk to. The results had been painful at best!

The bitch was right! Her comments were convincing and when a more aware me spoke I agreed not to pursue my plan."

Lesson learned: When you begin to dialogue with Selves you may decide their behavior is still valid... or not.

"I got my Selves to stop

blocking my progress,by developing a list of conditions, it agreed would keep me safe"

Lesson learned: You can negotiate win/win solutions with Selves.
