What is Walking-In-Your-Shoes®?
Walking-In-Your-Shoes® (WIYS) is a phenomenological body/mind approach to self-healing, integration and inner growth.
Co-founded by psychologist John F. Cogswell Ph.D. and actor/filmmaker Joseph Culp during the late 1980s in Los Angeles, WIYS was developed in private groups and workshops over a 20-year period.Often called the "alternative to Family Constellation work", this body-based transformational process is widely used by therapists, artists, life coaches, and healing practitioners throughout the world.
Walking-In-Your-Shoes® is a highly effective and illuminating way to have a family member, colleague, animal, illness, creative project, helpful archetype, or personal issue revealed in great depth, with safety and compassion.
How is Walking-In-Your-Shoes® done?
In group practice or private sessions, under the guidance of a trained WIYS facilitator, the Walker is able to tune in to the wisdom of the body and intuitively receive the inner experience, life themes and core issues of any person or subject.
In Walking-In-Your-Shoes®, the Walker engenders an experience of spontaneous empathy through movement, or “Walking”, and describes in detail, both physically and verbally, the insights received. These insights are often stunning, clarifying, transformative, and life-changing.
Why practice Walking-In-Your-Shoes®?
Walkers and clients using the WIYS process report many benefits such as an expanded sense of self, oneness, empowerment, deeper acceptance, and integration. It is a powerful way to receive insight into anything or anyone in your life as well as receive and share insight for others.
Walking-In-Your-Shoes® offers an opportunity to break out of our often limiting “self-concepts” and move into our deeper natures of love, compassion and “mirror-like” wisdom.
Walking-In-Your-Shoes® is a profound yet simple way to de-mystify and develop your intuitive ability. No previous intuitive training is needed to gain and give tremendous benefit with this process.
