In this second edition of Daily Parts Meditation Practice™, certified IFS practitioner Michelle Glass shares the foundations of this life-changing approach to counseling and self-healing. Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a way of understanding your personal journey and identifying and addressing past trauma and coping mechanisms. One of the fundamental themes of IFS is “parts”—separate facets of an individual that can work together or at odds with one another.
Glass demonstrates how to create Parts Timelines, Parts Catalogue Cards, Parts Biographies, Parts Maps, Parts Externalizations, and how to develop a specific and personalized Daily Parts Meditation Practice™. Through these techniques, readers learn how to develop a coherent narrative, deepen integration, accrue less burdens, and augment spiritual awakening, among others.
Glass’ exercises will help readers better understand their journeys and themselves. Whether they are new to parts work or experienced practitioners, they’ll find these exercises teach them something new about integration.
Glass directs her work to both clients and therapists. For a therapist to successfully help clients, he or she needs to have a stable foundation. Daily Parts Meditation Practice™ can help them better connect with their clients and support integration. For clients, the guide can help them do their own work and better understand their journeys.
See what others have to say about the DPMP™:
“As I travel around the world teaching IFS, I hear frequently from IFS clients who have been using the DPMP™ and loving it. I also hear from IFS therapists that they not only are having good results when their clients use it, but that they are finding it helpful for their own parts work. This second edition offers all that and more! This book will deeply enhance your journey toward being Self-led.” Richard C. Schwartz, Ph.D., Developer of IFS
“In this creative volume, Michelle Glass teaches a method of deeply integrating the seemingly disharmonious voices within, by firmly establishing secure relationships between Self and hitherto isolated and fragmented parts.” Gabor Mate M.D.Author, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction
“Michelle dives right into the deep end in her artistic, soulful and poetic exploration of the inner world. Using her personal journey as well as a fictional case study, Michelle offers clear, hands-on templates for identifying each part’s unique story and for building strong, loving internal connections. If you want to deepen your own IFS or meditation practice, or just further expand your inner journey, this book offers a compassionate, creative and inspiring invitation.” Cece Sykes, LCSW, Psychotherapist and Senior IFS Trainer
“Michelle has created a wonderful resource for the IFS community with her book, Daily Parts Meditation Practice™. She offers clear, creative ways to identify, get to know, unblend from, stay connected with and integrate our parts and the system with which they live. The sharing of her personal journey is yet another example of the benefits of Self-connection and the healing power of IFS. Bravo!” Frank Anderson, M.D., Executive Director, The Foundation for Self Leadership
“With this book, you can trust both the message and the messenger implicitly. In IFS, we hold true the message: all parts are welcome, but sometimes we accidentally neglect parts after unburdening. The Daily Parts Meditation Practice™ will go a long way to prevent that from happening, while also strengthening the parts’ gifts uncovered along the way. With these practices, transformation is a journey, not a destination. It is deeply honoring and so clearly presented.” Mariel Pastor, LMFT, IFS Lead Trainer, Creator of Character Mapping
And more…The manual is written with the assumption that the reader has some basic understanding and framework of the IFS Model. Please do not let that deter you if you are unfamiliar with IFS.
