About Your Teachers

Gabor Maté, MD

Dr. Gabor Maté is an author, speaker, and physician who specializes in addiction, stress, and childhood development. His many books include In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts and When the Body Says No. His signature psychotherapeutic approach, Compassionate Inquiry, reveals what lies beneath the appearances we present to the world.

Richard C. Schwartz, PhD

Dr. Richard Schwartz is coauthor of the most widely used family therapy text in the United States, Family Therapy: Concepts and Methods, and is the creator of the Internal Family Systems model, which he developed in response to clients’ descriptions of various “parts” within themselves.

A note from our founder, Tami Simon

Gabor Maté, MD, and Richard Schwartz, PhD, are what I would call “geniuses of the inner world.”

Each is an original thinker who trusts their own knowing. In their respective careers, practicing medicine and psychotherapy, they each followed the evidence they discovered in their clinical practice and broke new ground, even when it went against the status quo.

Gabor Maté and Richard Schwartz inspire us to dig deep and stay true to what we discover. They are the type of courageous voices we need to help us turn with compassion and utter integrity toward all of our experience, and find the healing and wholeness we seek.

It is a great honor for Sounds True to bring together Gabor Maté and Richard Schwartz for their first collaborative in-depth teaching series, Embracing All of You. In this new online video series, they present their respective approaches to self-discovery and healing—Compassionate Inquiry (CI) developed by Gabor Maté and Internal Family Systems (IFS) developed by Richard Schwartz—revealing what these two approaches have in common (a lot!) and, most importantly, how we can apply these approaches to the personal challenges we face.

In six sessions, we explore:

    • How Richard’s and Gabor’s early life experiences formed their outlook and professional lives, and the clinical discoveries that underpin their approaches
    • An overview of the IFS and CI models in two in-depth sessions where Richard and Gabor dialogue and tease apart the similarities and differences between their approaches
    • Understanding addictive behaviors, the relationship between trauma and addiction, and how CI and IFS work with people who want to address an addictive pattern
    • The relationship of early wounds and core beliefs to physical illnesses and disease, with a particular emphasis on using IFS and CI to address chronic diseases and autoimmune challenges
    • How to use CI and IFS as pathways to spiritual discovery

Interspersed with the six teaching sessions, Gabor and Richard lead participants through actual CI and IFS healing sessions—

“We get to watch the two doctors, the developers of these methods, guide participants on breakthrough inner journeys.”

What is most important is that these demonstrations don’t feel like they are happening outside of us, but instead like we are participating in a shared process of discovery and healing.

The title of the series, Embracing All of You, is quite accurate, with an emphasis on the feeling tone of the word “embrace.” The entire series feels like a loving invitation to include every part of our experience in our awareness in a judgment-free way. The series is an invitation to see ourselves clearly and offer ourselves compassion for everything we have gone through to arrive at this moment.

At various times during the recording of Embracing All of You, I had the sense that what was happening between Gabor, Richard, and the audience was truly historic. As the founder of Sounds True and someone who has hosted and produced more than a thousand recordings over the past 37 years, this is a feeling I receive on rare occasions. It seems like it only happens when there is some sense that the future is in the room with us, that there are people in the future who will be hugely influenced and impacted by what is occurring.

Embracing All of You: Compassionate Inquiry Meets Internal Family Systems is a history-making collaboration between two of the most insightful and influential healers of our time. It will have many ripples and impact people for a long time to come. It is an honor to present to you such a learning opportunity that is filled with so much transformational power and hard-won wisdom.

With love on the journey,
Tami Simon
Founder, Sounds True
