410, 510 – Accessing the Optimal Future Self

A Somatically Based Resource
Nancy Napier

Parts 1 & 2

We’ve all internalized rules growing up that defined who and what we could be. Attempts to break these largely unconscious rules can elicit powerful physical and psychological survival responses that stop us in our tracks and block our potential. But by tapping into our optimal future self—a wiser, more evolved aspect of who we are—we can access a variety of new experiences. The optimal future self can lead to new body states and perceptions, heal shame and trauma-based responses, and mobilize internal resources with your clients. In this workshop, you’ll explore how to:

  • Use hypnosis, guided imagery, and felt-sense to help clients identify new opportunities, and enhance self-compassion
  • Reframe limiting beliefs that block clients on their optimal journey
  • Take risks such as breaking family rules that have previously felt too dangerous to challenge
  • Fully harness the power of positive states like expansiveness, receptivity, curiosity, and strength in the change process
