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!

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 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!

I’ve taken almost all the programs at The Option Institute and I have to say that Advanced Power Dialogues 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.

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.
