Join this course to learn more about how to:
- Why internals get stuck or go missing
- What the difference is between being in the Here & Now versus the There & Then
- How we can help folk in the There & Then find their way to the Here & Now
- How to help headmates stay in the Here & Now once they’re here
This course covers & discusses:
- Some of the singular world’s theories about how trauma (regardless of when it happens) impacts “parts” and probably equally applies to headmates
- Different “styles” of getting lost or stuck
- Exploring the nature of the There & Then
- Presence & Time-Sense (the Here & Now)
- Rescue Missions: big & little
- How to create an internal environment that encourages remaining in the Here & Now
Suggested prerequisites (optional):
- Significant internal cooperation and group trust amongst at least a sub-group of their system.
- Intermediate level of communication in-system (the ability to have internal discussions or meetings).
- The ability to consider spiritual concepts from other cultures than their own.
- (definitely optional but very helpful) A good sense or grasp of your inner world.
For an overview of how our offerings weave into each other, and flowcharts to help pick where y’all would like to go next, see the United Front System Self-Help Flowchart/Decision Maker.
This course is a mix of recorded presentations and written materials/suggested assignments. To get the most from the course it’s suggested to take advantage of all the provided materials unless it is marked as optional.
Important: if you have significant troubles with spiritual concepts, are struggling with your time-sense or consciousness stability, or do not have a safe environment or time/safe space in which to work with your headmates, this is not going to be the best coaching group for your system at this time. It is highly suggested that folk ensure they have a safe space and time before embarking on any rescue missions or making direct contact with headmates who may not be stable.
