Youniversetm Center-Peace A Compassion-based Model
"What is essential is invisible to the eye" Antoine de Saint-Exupery-The Little Prince
"Everything waits to be noticed" Art Garfunkel
The Youniverse Self-Leadership tool along with its companion storybook, "The Big Bright BallAnswers the Call" and guidebook, "A Guide to Integrating theYouniverse in Therapy", takes the essential, yet invisible inner world of thoughts and feelings and makes them visible to the eye where they can be helped and healed by our loving Self.
Each Youniverse features one's "always already happy", "Big Bright Ball" Self (large central sphere) and a "youniverse" of "Parts"(smaller attachable colored orbs). The Parts can represent one's painful thoughts, emotions, behaviors, physical sensations and memories. The goal of Youniverse assisted therapy is to help you help your clients achieve inner harmony by experiencing their capacity for loving Self-Leadership through a process in which they recognize and use their center-core Self to See, Understand,, and Heal the Parts of them in pain.
Reading the companion Big Bright Ball Storybook helps clients to know their Self-loving nature, playfully encouraging them to make that pivotal "You-turn" inward. For parents, offering the Youniverse as a "Feelings Wheel" "Mind Map" or "Choice Wheel" becomes a natural and effective Conversation-Starter and/or Time-IN Solution with which children are helped to care and speak for their feelings and resource their parents to problem solve.
