I realized only a week or two
before coming to Advanced PowerDialogues that I want to become a mentor for myself! How exciting! I have learned that I can love myself through my exploration of myself and it creates such a great clarity in my exploration. I have always struggled with the “why” questions because of my self judgments. Now when I begin asking myself the “why” – why am I doing, saying, feeling this…I can become really present and identify the stimulus and belief instead of beating myself repeatedly with the response! Hooray. I am growing!

Advanced PowerDialogues gave me the opportunity to dive as deep as I could into the process of mentoring and surrounding myself with an attitude of love and acceptance for others and for myself. The curriculum of the course was optimal to attain the highest level of learning The Option Process Dialogue, grasping the concepts and tools used in the dialogue and finding joy in myself around the learning process. I feel clearer in myself and truly accepting and loving of others.

I’ve taken almost all the programs at the Option Institute® and I have to say that Advanced PowerDialogues seemed to bring all those programs together for me. Understanding The Option Process Dialogue and the attitude of a mentor are the underpinnings that hold this institute together. It’s why we love the teachers, why all the programs work and why the relationships you form here are deeper than anywhere else in your life. This class holds the key to your happiness. Just take it!

Advanced PowerDialogues was an in-depth exploration not only of The Option Process Dialogue, but also of the many things which arise in us as potential mentors that keep us from fully being in the attitude of being present, non-judgmental and non-directive. Thus, this course is a very personal and useful inner exploration also. The teaching was especially effective, as you get so much individual attention in the small groups.
If you want to immerse yourself in the best process on the planet for promoting peace and love in the world starting in the most powerful place within-THIS IS IT. Look no further, you have found it!
I loved Advanced PowerDialogues. The dialogue, and learning the dialogue, really is my path to heaven. In addition to what I have learned as a mentor, there is no dark and sticky corner of myself which I have not brought out to explore this week. I was able to create exactly the program I wanted for myself. The dialogue requires me to show up and I really showed up and took responsibility as never before. Yay!

Wow. Advanced PowerDialogues is a full-throttle dive into the dialogue process which challenges you to stretch yourself and listen in ways you have never done before. By absorbing more technical aspects of the dialogue, along with a consistent attitude, I am now the most effective mentor I’ve ever been – and I now have the excitement, tools and intention to grow myself even more in this way. Thank you.

Advanced PowerDialogues has been a great experience for me. Through this week I’ve made lots of important discoveries, both to do with my own personal issues and to do with the art and science of being a great mentor AND a great explorer! Each moment in the program is an opportunity to learn, and the instruction given makes that learning all the more fluid & enjoyable.

By coming to adult programs at the Option Institute, and doing Option Process Dialogues, I have dug into my deepest insecurities and resolved them enough that there is a neediness I used to have that simply isn’t there anymore. I still get scared, or angry, or sad sometimes, but I no longer feel desperate to be heard. My relationships at work have improved, and my career is taking off. I have deeper and more honest friendships. I recommend the programs and dialogues for anyone else who wants these kinds of changes for themselves.
