Types of Parts: Managers
The Healing Room at Heartspace
Module Seven - 60 Minutes
What Managers Do
Perhaps you have already identified some of your own Managers in Module 5. Here you can revisit those and perhaps identify more. Use an index card and make a list of all the different managers you have. Some of these are adaptive and some more potective. Mark the more protective ones with an asterisk.
Fears of Protectors
As you read and become aware of your own Managers, notice which of these fears resonate with you.
Back to Your List
Return to your list of managers and choose one of the more protective managers that you marked with an asterisk. Make an index card for this part, draw a picture, or write a statement, declaration, thesis from the perspective of this part. The latter would start out something like:
"I am _________, one of __________'s managers.
It is my job to ________.
I fear _______.
I protect _________ exile by _____________."
And so on...
Make it as thorough as you can.

Take Your Time/Repeat
Providing feedback in the private group blog at www.healingroom.space will help us make modifications in estimated time, and improve the overall experience of using The Healing Room.
Journal About What You Discover
You may also want to bring along your own private journal for this purpose.
Alternating Bilateral Stimulation
Remember, The Healing Room is set up with a stereo system that can provide audible Alternating Bilateral Stimulation (ABS) which is a component of EMDR therapy (Eye-Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). The unique Alternating Bilateral Stimulation sample played continuously in The Healing Room is called Ocean Crossover and mimics ocean waves moving back and forth across the room at a gentle low volume in the background. It has a relaxing effect and supports the neural integration of new perspectives and healing of negatively charged memories, particularly when it is paired with specific tasks.
Having the ABS playing at a volume loud enough to hear it, but low enough that it seems to fade into the background while you learn these skills, is optimal.
