As the originators of Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves, Hal and I spent more than 45 years developing a body of work that has excited the minds and touched the hearts of people all over the world. It has transcended national boundaries and cultural differences to allow a kind of connection between people that is entirely new. This work has shown people how to look at themselves differently and - in doing so - it bridges the distances amongst them.
Our joint journey involved going beyond the apparent duality of the world - beneath this surface - to explore this shared humanity and the spiritual realms associated with it. We found that when we dive beneath our differences - into the depths of our vulnerability and our shared humanity - we all sang the same chorus. And so it is that when we are given the chance to sing our individual melodies, our songs harmonize and, together, we add our voices and our energies to the Music of the Spheres.
Each of us "contains multitudes". We are made up of many selves, identifying with some and rejecting others. This over-identification with some selves and the loss of wholeness that comes from the rejection of others, can create imbalances and blind spots. This work is about embracing all the selves. This dance of the selves is an amazing process and we see the dynamics of the world around us shift as our internal world changes.
I invite you to explore as we did: yourself, your relationships and how your own consciousness affects the world in which you live! Our work has been dedicated to this exploration. It has been an expression of our own personal journeys as well as our commitment to the process of our relationship. The ideas presented to you are alive. They changed as we changed and as our understanding deepened. They continued to evolve right up to Hal's passing in 2020 at the age of 92; I find they are still alive and continue to evolve.
Since I cannot travel everywhere and cannot meet everyone personally, I offer you our work on this website. I hope that you will be able to use this information to guide you on your own journey, and I send you my very best wishes...
Voice Dialogue: You are not one, but many.Voice Dialogue is the basic method for contacting, learning about, and working with the many selves that make up each of us.
Experience the evolution of the Aware Ego Process that allows you to embrace all of these selves, have real choice, and live life more fully and consciously.
The Psychology of Selves provides a clear explanation of how these selves operate in your life and how they keep you from realizing your full potential.Learn how these selves determine the way you see the world, control your behavior, and limit your choices. Most of us live a much smaller life than necessary. Learn to be more than any one of your individual selves.
Relationship: Our relationships are controlled by these selves.The Stones' approach to relationship - their theory of bonding patterns - provides an easy to understand technology of relationship. Learn how the difficulties in your relationships can be the source of creative change, of greater control over your life and behavior, and more joy.
Energetics - interactions in "the field".Modern science and ancient wisdom both teach about the importance of what is not seen - of the field that surrounds matter. Our emphasis on the energetics of relationship enables you to work directly with this field in both your interpersonal and intrapsychic life.
Dreams - providing guidance from within.This work activates the "inner teacher". As you learn about - and separate from - your individual selves, your own source of deep wisdom becomes available to you through dreams. Learning to understand your dreams and daydreams provides an objective and steady guidance that is particularly valuable in uncertain times.
