One of the key components of The InnerPathic Process is the use of Verbal Process. Since both Guldal and Ken hold doctorates in psychology, they have an inherent respect and understanding of the value of using dialogue to bring forth unfinished business, hidden emotional wounds, unconscious beliefs and thought patterns. Bringing these issues to the surface is important in the work because these issues when hidden or out of awareness can block the potential for “true change (a cellular full body-mind shift). When there is true change a person automatically behaves, lives, feels, and experiences living differently. This is the type of shift that is the goal of The InnerPathic Process.
One of the most powerful ways to reach the subconscious, unconscious, the hidden traumas living in the Amygdala is with images and metaphor. Metaphor can be defined as imaginative, descriptions of objects, events, processes. The value of metaphor is that it can bypass conscious resistance, and serves to stimulate creativity in relation to a problem. Metaphorical thinking provides a gateway between the conscious and the unconscious and between ‘left brain’ and ‘right brain’ processing. Therefore, the use of story and imagery is a vital part of the verbal dialog in The InnerPathic Process.
Psychology is a broad discipline which seeks to analyze the human mind and help to create change in order to facilitate a greater sense of well being and self-understanding. Research in psychology seeks to understand and explain thought, emotion and behavior. It is probably safe to define psychotherapy as a process whereby psychological problems are treated through communication and relationship factors between an individual and a therapist. There is a specific understanding of the way people use words, how they are said, and which ones are not used. Attention to body language and voice tone is an important element in the therapeutic process.
