The Next Step – international Voice Dialogue training

July 13 – 19, 2014 at Lago di Varese in Italy

A lot has happened since our first conference in 1983. Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves have become increasingly popular in the world. It is gratifying to see the work spreading into many areas, such as business coaching and training, systems of body work, spiritual disciplines, and a variety of approaches to therapy and counselling. Inner Critics, the Inner Child, Pushers, Pleasers and many other similar terms have become household words.

As wonderful as this is, the downside is that the work can become superficial, and that it loses the connection with the Psychology of Selves and Transformational Psychology from which it derives.

The Next Step in Voice Dialogue for me means working creatively with the underlying principles of the work and deepening the connection with its roots, the Psychology of Selves and transformational psychology. See here the experiences of participants of last years program. We have a strong international staff, led by Robert Stamboliev. more

    Voice Dialogue and Transformational Psychology Training program

    “Tuning of yourself as an instrument”



    With Robert Stamboliev MA, Maria Daniels, Ruud Zuurman

    Voice Dialogue is a unique, elegant and highly effective method in coaching and therapy. It results in more insight, a better communication, more vitality and the ability to make better and more fitting choices.

    Voice Dialogue is a dialogue with our inner voices. These voices belong to the various parts of our personality: our selves or sub-personalities. Each of these selves has its own way of thinking, feeling, behaviour and observation. Often we identify with one or more Subpersonalities, with which we have learnt to survive, our so-called “primary selves”, while other parts of us try to let themselves be heard in vain. Once they are able to express themselves they each have a lot to say in their own specific way. more

      Linkage training, what connects people and drives them apart

      “Connection, that’s the question”


      Weekend training about what connects people and what drives them apart

      Led by Robert Stamboliev and Maria Daniels

      “He and I really click”.

      “She seems to radiate negativity”

      “It feels like we’ve known each other for years”

      “She is such a warm person”

      You hear yourself say it. You hear people around you say it. And we’re all talking about the same thing: what contact with another person feels like. It’s usually an unconscious feeling and it happens on every level; in love, family life, friendship and at work. In this context it’s popularly called energy. Energy that can be felt and recognised in many different ways. Especially if you pay more and careful attention to it. more

        Theme: FREEDOM

        Freedom is a lifelong theme for me that somehow is becoming even more topical the last few years. Perhaps because I am approaching 60 – no I don’t look like it thank you – and in reflecting on more than 30 years of facilitating individual, relationship and group processes this theme seems to stand out. In any case, I notice that in most of my new activities freedom is the main theme.

        For me inner freedom is not a specific state of being but a continuing consciousness process. Consciousness defined as the awareness and experience of energy patterns. It is about becoming aware of the sub-personalities that we are identified with (and this can also be the ‘free spirit’), experiencing their energy and then dis-identifying from them. We then move quite organically into a new space with more freedom. From there we can explore and embrace the opposite energies. We find a new middle position, a more Aware Ego. This Aware Ego is able to ‘hold the tension of opposites’ and ‘the tension of not-knowing’…. more

          Voice Dialogue Day – Freedom from the known

          With a little help from your Voice Dialogue friends

          I would like to invite you to the Voice Dialogue Day on 21 June. This day for our network will take place in Blooming in Bergen NH, Netherlands; from 2 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. 21 June is also solstice. This is a time of creativity, of abundant energy, while we simultaneously experience the roundness and fullness of midsummer.

          The theme is: FREEDOM.

          This theme is topical for many. For me personally, the theme of Freedom was the start of my awareness process and a leitmotiv in my life. At the age of 16, I was given a book by Krishnamurti, titled: Freedom from the known. I was completely gripped by it and it led to entire study weekends in bed, where I observed my thought process, determined to fathom the mystery. Although this was sometimes hard to combine with my daily life – they seemed like two different worlds, which I only learned to connect later on through VD – it eventually resulted in a breakthrough that formed the basis for my later work as a trainer and therapist. more

            On the transformation of the Inner Critic

            How to turn a bully into an ally.

            Would it not be perfect if we, as human beings, would not hesitate to demonstrate our strength, and say wholeheartedly what we stand for in life, and would not be embarrassed either to show our sensitivities and vulnerabilities? Would it not be wonderful to just be in the world with open-mindedness and without prejudice, in order to simply let in ‘that which is’, feel it, think about it and discuss it with each other?

              Teaching facilitation: a framework

              transformational psychology and language as the grounding for methods

              by Anneloes Welling-Maassen


              Many methods for coaching, mentoring and therapy can be understood and taught effectively using the framework “teaching facilitation”, which I have developed during the years that I have been working as a doctor, coach and trainer in communication skills. In this article I will describe how the framework is built. The concept of transformational psychology, in which the body takes an important place, is connected to a specific way of working with language by means of the “theatre of consciousness”. Based on this connection the framework consists of three layers:

              - language
              - model of consciousness of transformational psychology
              - body

              The insights and skills belonging to each layer can be taught and trained. This combination gives a solid base for learning diverse methods of coaching, mentoring and therapy, several of which are discussed below.

                Sustainability or quick-fix?

                The broad social discussion on sustainability, which is being held in many segments of society (sources of energy, banks, food), also applies to the world of coaching, training and therapy. Here, we also ask ourselves: is it about sustainability or a quick-fix, a path with a heart or a methodology, your own inspiration or certification, creativity or protocol? more

                    On the road

                    These interesting times ask for people who can deal with their fear and insecurities. The changing world situation does not seem temporary, but a new reality. I demands from us agility and personal leadership to develop another way of living. In my practice and in our trainings I see that people contemplate more on their basic values: who am I, what is it all about, with whom do I want to connect and what is my real purpose…

                    What gives me energy is to work with people with whom there is a real connection and where the energy flows. Places and forms of the work then develop organically. This year I worked with a vary varied audience, from and in different countries and cultures, from executives to people searching for a job, in The Netherlands, Italy, Greece and Turkey.

                    Bergen, Netherlands is still a wonderful place for coaching, relationship retreats and trainings. more
