SPT meets IFS
Embracing Your Parts
In today's world, we often find ourselves caught in an endless, sometimes looping flow of thoughts. It can be perceived as a continuous inner dialogue, not rarely associated with strong emotions such as fear, anger or sadness.
According to the IFS model our mind works as a system composed of different parts that tell us various narratives that impact how we navigate life. What would happen if we combine the systemic approach and practices of SPT, which are mostly used to make systems more visible (or to see and sense themselves), with this lenses of the inner narratives/parts? That’s what we are going to explore in this workshop, a half day dedicated to making visible our inner dynamics and, mostly, to uncover possible paths that reveal the inherent sanity within our internal system (also called Self) so it can expand to the external systems we are connected to, generating higher well-being for all.
In this workshop we will combine the Internal Family Systems (IFS) systemic approach of the person and its mind, with Social Presencing Theater (SPT) that uses simple body postures and movements for social systems awareness, to create a safe space that allows to initiate profound change.
