Voice Dialogue Training

Inner voices shape our attitudes about who we are and who we should be. These "selves" call out to us constantly – in our daily activities, our moods, our dreams, our relationships, and our bodies. Knowing our “selves” enriches our lives and helps us process whatever life brings our way.

Voice Dialogue Training is designed for both personal and professional growth. It includes teaching, discussion groups, demonstrations, participatory exercises, movement, and individual experiences of the work. Judith Hendin has divided the teaching into 3 levels.
