What is the Four Voices practice?

The Four Voices practice is done when a practitioner consciously and awarely switches the pronouns in the internal and external self talk dialogue.

The Personal Voice is sustained and maintained by the pronoun “I.” As in: “I think and feel, therefore I am.”

The Committee Voice is sustained and maintained by substituting the pronoun “we” for “I.” As in: “We think and feel therefore we are.”

The Witness Voice is sustained and maintained by substituting a noun for a pronoun. As in: “What is this body-mind experiencing?” Or, “what is [insert name] experiencing?”

The Impersonal Voice is sustained and maintained by dropping all personal pronouns and nouns. It is the stream of internal and external talking without the use of any personal references.

The practice is to explore the inner world by consciously switching between voices, always returning to the personal voice and the end for good ecology and equilibrium.
