3 Goals of this Workshop Presenters will synthesize diverse psychological theories and spiritual teachings into a working model for understanding the interplay of degrees of spiritual consciousness with psychological well-being. Participants will learn ways to identify, name, and partner with the inner divine self. Presenters will offer a topography of divided inner selves functioning with little awareness of each other and with dim recognition of the divine source within. Participants will learn to facilitate dialogue between the divided selves and the divine self. @Laura Delaplain and He idi King and the Institute for Spiritual Life and Psychotherapy2014

20 Liminal Time and Liminal Space That time and space in which a person is brought to the threshold of crossing over from the state of being a Divided Self into a state of being in communion with the Divine Self. @Laura Delaplain and He idi King and the Institute for Spiritual Life and Psychotherapy2014

21 Summary of the Process 1)Therapist’s Role: Uncover liminal space between the therapist and client by pulling one’s self back, by checking one’s own ego, by becoming a non-anxious presence, listening closely, being comfortable with silence, and refraining from the impulse to give advice, to teach, to interpret or to share one’s own wisdom. 2)Client’s role: To create liminal space within through the process of kenosis or 'self-emptying,' through a repetition of one’s story, or by bringing into consciousness the places of division within one’s self. 3)Readiness for a dialogue between the Divided Self and the Divine Self. @Laura Delaplain and He idi King and the Institute for Spiritual Life and Psychotherapy2014

26 “I have no doubt that most people live…in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, much like a person who, out of their whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only their little finger.” Wm James @Laura Delaplain and He idi King and the Institute for Spiritual Life and Psychotherapy2014

31 Neuroplasticity of the Brain The more active two neurons are the stronger the connection between them grows: thus, with every experience, your brain rewires its physical structure. The brain learns, adapts and molecularly restructures itself on the basis of thought and emotional experience. The brain can grow approximately 6,000 neurons a day in response to how you use it. @Laura Delaplain and He idi King and the Institute for Spiritual Life and Psychotherapy2014

32 Case Illustration “It’s a mortal sin.” (the Divided self) @Laura Delaplain and He idi King and the Institute for Spiritual Life and Psychotherapy2014

35 The gifts [Christ] gave were... for building up the body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith... to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ. We must no longer be children, tossed to and fro and blown about by every wind of doctrine,... we must grow up in every way into... Christ. Ephesians 4: selected verses (11-15) @Laura Delaplain and He idi King and the Institute for Spiritual Life and Psychotherapy2014
