What keeps individuals from being able to realize — or even to identify — personal priorities and dreams that are in alignment with their higher nature? The inner stories that are played out in one’s life give a substantial clue to this question. These stories overload one’s internal systems with counter-productive information and lead to repetitive behaviors.

An introduction to the principles of Deep Coaching as an orientation to activating healthy human development and transformation serves as the foundation for this session. The Inner Story Process is a discovery tool that gives rise to the unconscious becoming conscious. By heightening awareness of the interwoven cycle of recurring mental, emotional, physiological and behavioral reactions to triggering situations and the experiential impact of such reactions, the individual is able to pinpoint cues, gain perspective, and change course.

The learning process will include discovering how the uninterrupted storyline works, illuminating specific inner stories, interrupting the story cycle, and creating new experiences.Attendees will have the opportunity to practice the Inner Story Process and identify alternative and liberating strategies. They will leave with a tool that can be used in coaching, healing and other therapeutic environments.
