Voice Dialogue, founded by psychologists Hal and Sidra Stone, is a powerful method that involves connecting with and honoring the many parts of us that operate beneath our conscious awareness.
These parts can also be referred to as inner voices, energetic boundaries or inner selves. These “selves,” much like Jungian Archetypes, may include such characters as the Pleaser, Perfectionist, Rational Mind, Dreamer, Responsible Self, Spiritual Seeker, Inner Critic, Rebel, and the Vulnerable Inner Child.
Australian Voice Dialogue teacher Astra Niedra uses the Disney Pixar movie Inside Out to portray selves as emotions, such as Joy, Anger, and Sadness.
Niedra writes, “Each of us has a unique balance of selves, depending on cultural and family influences, genetic predisposition, birth order and early life experiences.
“When we become aware of our inner selves and start to consciously use them in our lives rather than living on autopilot, our life changes. We develop the ability to make new and better choices, and as we change and grow, the world around us reflects that change.”
Making conscious these voices through Voice Dialogue facilitation can lead to powerful insights that serve creative expression. With facilitation, you’ll learn to bring compassionate awareness to times when you feel stopped creatively. Often, just identifying these selves can bring greater depth and lucidity to your life and artistic expression.
