The Transformational Power of Integral Deep Listening

Dr. Joseph Dillard has been working with dreams, nightmares, as well as the dreamlike sleepwalking and nightmarish dramas of waking life for over forty years. He has a broad clinical background, working in out-patient, in-patient, and private practice environments with couples, families, children, the dying, those with issues of childhood trauma, addiction, phobias, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, gender issues, and personality disorder. In addition, he has worked with many “adjusted” and “normal” folks who want to take their development to the next level. 

What are the advantages of Integral Deep Listening?

IDL focuses on helping you to wake up out of whatever life scripting and dramas are blocking your healing, balancing, and transformation. It is not typical therapy, in that Dr. Dillard’s function is not to interpret your experience, to diagnose or treat, but to put you in touch with your unique life compass and access its priorities for your life. IDL thereby empowers you by putting you in touch with emerging potentials that are aligned with your life compass. The results are unexpected, highly creative, and yet provide practical approaches to problem solving the life issues that are important to you.

What can you expect from your Skype session?

The agenda depends on you and your needs. If you have issues you want to problem solve around, we can do that. However, it is highly recommended that you spend the majority of your time during sessions interviewing dream characters or the personifications of life issues and developing an integral life practice that involves applying the recommendations that they make in your everyday life. 

How much does it cost?

Skype session are only a dollar a minute, payable to Joseph Dillard, Dream Yoga, PayPal. Session length is typically between forty-five minutes and two hours, depending on your needs. Interviews typically take about ninety minutes.

What is the time frame for treating different conditions with IDL?

The elimination of nightmares, even repetitive ones of long duration, usually only takes one or two sessions.

Because of their intensity and intrusion into everyday life, nightmares of post-traumatic stress disorderrequire two sessions per week the first two weeks, one session per week for the second two weeks, and one session every other week for six weeks.

The elimination of situational and exogenous depressionsnormally takes between two and six months.

The elimination of anxiety disordersand phobias typically takes between one and six sessions.

Improvement of communication between couplesgenerally requires only four sessions, but most couples find that ongoing sessions are advisable.

The rebuilding of trust in a relationship following infidelitygenerally requires four sessions, but again, most couples find that ongoing sessions are advisable.

While IDL does not address physical conditions, it eliminates factors that impede healing, such as fear, anxiety, stress, victimization, and the mental and emotional side effects of pain. To the extent that psychological factors create symptoms and limit healing, IDL can reduce much associated misery. Benefits generally come from one to four sessions.

Moving beyond normalcy

Integral Deep Listening provides an effective way to take your development to the next level, regardless of where you are in your life. To get the most out of IDL, you need to treat it as an ongoing life yoga, or psychospiritual discipline. Our certification programs are an excellent way to do so.
