We learned how to integrate the complementary nature of NVC and IFS. The awareness of, and connection with, parts in a Self-lead inner system highly contributes to how we relate to ourselves (self-empathy), others and the wider social system (empathy). 

In the Lead Your Life Foundation course we have already encountered the two different states of parts, a healthy state and an extreme state. These states can apply to the manager, firefighter and exile parts. When parts are in an extreme state they can be self-destructive and aggressive. 
We have focused in the foundation in getting to know our parts, unblending from our parts, and restoring them to their healthy roles so that they can contribute to a Self-lead inner system that is in balance and in harmony. In this process we successfully applied both the IFS and the NVC process for connecting, witnessing and empathising from Self with parts. 
The extreme behaviour of parts can often be restored by the above process, hearing their judgements and transforming these to observations, feelings, needs and request.

Burdens (legacy and sociocultural burdens)Sometimes we have to explore further the life of our parts, by helping them to release their burdens. There is an important distinction between parts and their burdens. Parts are not burdens, roles are not burdens.

In this course we will explore only legacy and sociocultural burdens.  


In this course we will explore:

  • what burdens are and how we notice them

  • what the different burdens are for the different parts

  • recognising legacy and sociocultural burdens

  • distinguishing legacy and sociocultural burdens from personal burdens

  • releasing legacy and sociocultural burdensburdens

  • transforming burdens into gifts

  • integration of the unburdening in our practice
