The Psychology of Selves with Iudita Harlan

Using Voice Dialogue and Body Centered Awareness, our guest, Iudita Harlan, has been helping people get into the flow of their lives for over thirty years. We talk about her experiences and then do a live demonstration.

Iudita describes Voice Dialogue as a psycho spiritual consciousness process in which various Selves have a chance to talk to each other using the language of dream. Iudita grew up in communist Romania and her parents were holocaust survivors which led her to seek a process which allows us to embrace our shadows. She quotes her mentor. “For every shadow we embrace in ourselves, one less shadow is projected out into the world.”

After the break, we do two live demonstrations. Iudita works first with Katherine about a dream in which she can’t tell is she has to pee or not then with Ray of Santa Cruz about a dream in which a car seems to have a mind of its own.

Her next three part workshop called “Right Size Your Inner Critic” starts January 14. Find details at her webpage.

BIO: Iudita Harlan is a long time integration specialist in private practice using the Voice Dialogue Psychology of Selves consciousness process created by Drs Hal and Sidra Stone and the Hellerwork Structural Integration process of Joseph Heller. She combines these with Body Centered Awareness and offers extensive workshops as well as private sessions.
