You Have Three Selves, Volume Two, 200 level material
If the three selves model embraces the whole of human experience; then, they must be all around us. Yikes, it's true! Find the 3S in your breath, body, blood, feet, in fairy tales, Casper cartoons, sidekicks, several Rudolf Steiner ideas, and Transactional Analysis.
Find the conscious and basic self in “Mars & Venus,” Batman & Robin, Rocky & Bullwinkle and Neil Simon's “Odd Couple.” More
The first-ever comprehensive textbook on the subject, the two-volume You Have Three Selves is simply the clearest, simplest most popular model of the “whole person” because
- It's comprehensive, it embraces every aspect of the earthbound human psyche, top to bottom,
- Encompasses all spiritual capacities human beings have, our “wings to fly,” in ecumenical terms
- Embraces the most earthbound, material aspects of human beings, our “strong roots in the Earth”
- Scales down easily to versions shareable with five year olds
- Can be grasped in its entirety by college sophmores, has nothing prohibitively esoteric or overly-intellectual
- Actively and explicitly encourages love for your self and service to others
- Compatible with Compassionate Communication (Nonviolent Communication, NVC)
Useful to coaches, counselors and energy workers of all kinds, the inner child, the lowest one-third of the three selves, is already the most widely used model of the human psyche in the world. Written in an interactive, fun style by a Waldorf-trained school teacher and medical intuitive.
Extraordinarily useful to healthcare professionals and energy workers because both the basic self and high self are accessible thru kinesiology testing. The inner child is functionally equal to our immune system. The 3S is the psychology of how we can heal ourselves; and, the human condition.
The 3S articulates with the entire range of 20th century humanistic talk-therapy practices; most significantly, coaching, Transactional Analysis, NLP and Brief Therapy. The 3S is a candidate for a "big tent" in psychology, under which all other models of the psyche can be understood thru and have their unique contributions clarified.
The Three Selves and its better known fragment, the inner child, remains the fastest growing and most widely used holistic model of the human being at this time. This is mainly because of how versatile and practical it is for counselors, healers, and therapists across all manner of method and technique. The three selves model is the whole; the inner child is one of its parts.
Unlike other wordy New Age philosophies and psychology, the 3S has usually clear and direct visual models of what it means to connect with both Spirit and with Ground. The 3S explicitly incorporates all spiritual capacities of the human being. The High Self stands for how each individual does—or does not—connect with their own Divinity.
The Three Selves bridges into and clarifies many “quantum science” ideas; for instance, the 3S are defined as overlapping fields of intelligence.
The Three Selves is FUN! Pop cultural reflections are all around us and are taken up in Vol. 2.
