InSight as a Form of Consciousness Healing



InSight as a Form of Consciousness Healing workshop is an intermediate level exploration of InSight and variations of altered states of consciousness. While the term altered states of consciousness is most frequently connected with psychedelic therapy, there are many altered states of consciousness that are present in the fundamental practices of IFS. At its most basic articulation, altered states of consciousness include any mindset that varies from the day-to-day awareness that is present in our daily lives. Some altered states of consciousness arise from experiences of overwhelming threat and compose the features of PTSD symptoms.  Others arise from meditation practices that open up our connections to guides, ancestors, divine helpers. This workshop explores the connection between the fundamental practice of InSight as an altered consciousness practice that is the heart of IFS and allows us to access the Inner World for Self to part connections and healing. This workshop will include an IFS meditation, didactic learning, and practice exercise.
