IFS as a Safe and Deep Healing Map to Psychedelic Territory


IFS as a Safe and Deep Healing Map to Psychedelic Territory

Developed over the past four decades, the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model offers a conceptual umbrella under which a variety of practices and approaches can be grounded and guided. IFS therapy provides an evidence-based set of original techniques for creating safety and fostering inner clarity and compassion. Guiding clients towards Self, IFS helps clients calm and transform their troubling inner voices, the critical and anxious chatter, the compulsive distractions, their feelings of vulnerability, inadequacy, and overwhelm. IFS can provide a safe and deeply healing map to psychedelic territory. With an IFS therapist and the appropriate guide, subjects undergoing psychedelic assisted therapy can quickly access a state characterized by the emergence of what IFS calls Self-energy: curiosity, courage, clarity, connectedness, and compassion. It has been discovered that a vast majority of subjects are often able to access, speak about and interact with parts. The map that IFS can provide for psychedelic territory is a promising and inspiring pathway to deep healing, with the potential to speed up the process of getting protective parts to unblend.
