Description

Becoming Our Compassionate Self: Integrating Parts of Ourselves into the Process of Spiritual Awakening

A Conversation Between Internal Family Systems and Tibetan Buddhism

Richard Schwartz, Ph.D., and Lama John Makransky, Ph.D.

with Lama Willa Miller, Ph.D. and Ed Yeats, Ph.D. (Discussants)

Have you noticed that, even after years of dedicated and sincere spiritual practice, whole areas of our personalities and our lives can remain untouched by the compassion and wisdom described in spiritual teachings? There is a paradigm shift taking place in both psychology and spiritual practice. It hinges on recognizing that we have not just one personality, but many inner sub-personalities, or parts, whose burdens obscure our access to the qualities and energy of our fuller awareness--our true Self. When we notice these parts of ourselves and how our minds have identified with them, we can learn how to welcome and integrate them into our spiritual life. In this workshop, Richard Schwartz, developer of the Internal Family Systems Model (IFS), and Lama John Makransky, developer of the Innate Compassion Training Model (ICT, adapted from Tibetan Buddhism), explore how principles and practices of IFS and ICT can help us uncover our true Self, which can hold all parts of ourselves and others in the healing and liberating powers of unconditional compassion and wisdom.
