IFS and Altogether You with Jenna Riemersma
On today's episode I talk with Jenna Riemersma, author of the book, "Altogether You: Experiencing personal and spiritual transformation with Internal Family Systems Therapy."
Jenna states, "IFS helps deliver what my faith tradition promises."
I love the concept of the "Spiritualizing part" who uses God language but has a feeling of moving away and not moving towards.
We talk about Self being the God image inside us all, and the idea of thinking about sin as the burden of trauma.
Jenna talks about restoration; the restoration of our parts with our Self.
She talks directly to you, dear listener. If you come from a faith background and have parts who think IFS is a wacky cult. If you are here to talk IFS and have been wounded by the church. This episode- and her incredible book- are for you.

IFS and Unblending on a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Solo Epi!
Sometimes unblending is getting a little bit of space between me and a part by asking, "What story is this part telling me?"

IFS and Belonging with Milena Worsham
On today's episode I chat with IFS Practitioner Milena Worsham as she shares her incredible story of growing up biracial in Texas.
Milena is a master story teller and I was drawn in from the beginning. I had this sensation of leaning in close as she spoke.
She states, "I grew up believing I was white.... This is a protection for the family... White is a protection. It is safe."
The first half of the episode is her and her family's story. The second half is about her connection to feminism and the performing arts. We talk about the womb and the legacy burdens we take on in the womb. We talk about family loyalty and family secrets. We talk about what we are 'allowed' to be as women.
I am not going to be able to tell you or share with you here the power of her story and her voice!
I decided to sum it all up with the "Belonging."
Just listen! I think you will walk about feeling moved and empowered.
Check out Milena's website to learn more about her. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come say Hi to me at The One Inside Facebook page or @ifstammy on Instagram or Twitter. I would love to hear from you.
