Event description

Description

"What is it that really binds the temporal and the eternal? What is it other than love, which therefore is before everything else and remains when all else is past." Kierkegaard, "Works of Love," (pg. 24)

There is a simple practice and path through which we can become this love-bridge. Nested within a long lineage of the world's widsom traditions, Internal Family Systems (IFS) offers us a clear map and simple and tranformative practice that provides a missing link to help us reliably become that which we have been given to be, the bridge between temporal and the eternal, the enfleshed circuitry through which love cannot but manifest and through which our worl cannot but be transformed, beautified, and made more whole.

More simply stated and, perhaps, more relevant to our immediate concerns, it is also a radical tool for catalyzing healing and growth in ourselves and our clients.

Join me for an introduction to IFS and an exploration of the spiritual dimensions of our healing practices. This presentation will include a mixture of didactice material, experiential practice, and discussion.

David Stern, Psy.D., is a psychologist and Certified IFS Therapist who has been in private practice in Providence, RI for more than 20 years.
