Introduction to Voice Dialogue with Bridgit Dengel Gaspard
- This course welcomes all levels of experience, including being brand new to Voice Dialogue.
- All you need is your device, access to the internet and a journal and pen to take notes.
- Ideally, find a comfortable, private place to learn.
Instead of personal development feeling like toxic positivity, what if could be an incredible, life-changing adventure where all of who you are belongs? Where breakthroughs don't mean you have to hide parts of yourself?
Wouldn't it be nice if there was a tool that supported awareness, perspective, clarity, and creativity. There is. It’s called Voice Dialogue.
In this introductory course, learn the transformational process of meeting your own symphony of inner selves in order to uncover the wisdom you’ve held inside all along. People begin their Voice Dialogue journey for any number of reasons, including needing to explore an inner tug-of-war, having relationship, career, financial and health issues and desires, life transitions--big and small, and being stuck.
Voice Dialogue is a potent and innovative direct-action tool based on the premise that a healthy personality consists of many different inner selves. Sadly though, we’re often made to feel that we have to choose to be one particular kind of person to get love and approval, which is limiting, creates blocks and fuels self-doubt and low self-esteem. The competing inner agendas that naturally result, force us to disown our uniqueness, reducing our ability to bring forth our singular gifts which are so needed in this world.
Here's what we’re going to do:
We’ll define Voice Dialogue
We’ll outline its uses
We’ll learn about the primary selves
We’ll learn how to tune into your inner selves
We will do a Voice Dialogue facilitation
Without access to our different sub-personalities, we’re cut off from vital parts of ourselves which robs us of our natural intelligence, creativity, and confidence as well as of our sources of energy. As the secret and powerful intentions of our Inner Selves are disclosed, Voice Dialogue is a key to unsolved puzzles that have plagued people, sometimes for years.
All of the exercises in this course have been road-tested with myself, my clients, my students, and my workshop participants who have all benefited, whether they were struggling with finding their assertive alter egos to deal with a bullying boss, wanting to find their life partner, uncovering their different selves related to money, how to manage parenthood or get in shape and improve their health, the list goes on.
Voice Dialogue has a ton of practical uses. Performing artists and creatives use it to access their imagination. Professionals in the mental health and wellbeing fields such as counselors, body workers, coaches, and other healers also use this technique to empower themselves, and to share it with their clients.
On the 3rd Thursday of each month at 8 pm (ET), bring your questions about Voice Dialogue to my LIVE learning lab. Watch a live Voice Dialogue facilitation, join in a great group exercise, and get your questions answered.
This course is only for educational and inspirational purposes.

I’m the author of The Final 8th: Enlist Your Inner Selves to Accomplish Your Goals, a creativity coach, psychotherapist and former performer who has always been fascinated by how we lead with different parts of ourselves. The unspoken dynamics between people in life and art has fueled my career path of discovering the multiple intelligences we hold the keys to. Astonishingly, people are often completely unaware of this, despite how deeply it influences whether or not we succeed or self-sabotage. With an affinity for movement, an uncanny ability to express unspoken words, turning things upside down and calling out micro and macro injustices, I produced, wrote, and starred in one of the first web series, MUDDERS, the first cyber sit.comedy, in addition to emerging as an entertainment journalist writing features and articles for Comic Bible, Broadway(.com), SHOW BUSINESS, and was the daily correspondent and festival line-producer for 1010 Radio and Hollywood(.com) at the Cannes Film Festival (2000 & 2002).
I did stand-up at places like Caroline’s and Gotham Comedy Club in NYC, but inside I was struggling. This led me on a hunt for tools that could help me with issues ranging from shame to creativity blocks. I was incredibly lucky to stumble upon Voice Dialogue, a powerful, direct-action tool that’s internationally recognized for its capacity to generate change. As my interest shifted to the healing powers of expressive modalities, the Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone, creators of Voice Dialogue, became my mentors and I earned a clinical graduate degree from Columbia University and founded the New York Voice Dialogue Institute as a Master Facilitator and Trainer, offering professional training approved for Continuing Education Credits.
I’ve taught in numerous settings including Omega Institute, International Coach Federation – NYC Chapter, NY Open Center, Expressive Therapies Summit, NYU Behavioral Health Center, Cūra Blu Costa Rica and many more. My work has been featured in over 70 podcasts and quoted in Yahoo! Life, Mashable, AskMen, Real Simple + US News, Popsugar, Huffpost, Bustle, AskMen and more.
At the heart of my commitment to the life-changing techniques I teach and practice is my devotion to accessible overall wellness, which inspired me to offer this free course. I love helping people realize they are so much more than they ever dreamt possible and reach their potential.
