Sample the IPFP Meditation

Try an Ideal Parent Figure Meditation

During this IPF guided meditation, you might consider relaxing deeply and imagining yourself as a young child having experiences with parent figures, who are ideal in every way to your nature and needs.
This demo is missing the conversational part of the IPF meditation—where you share your experience and the facilitator helps brighten and amplify what unfolds.

Ideal Parent Figure Protocol (IPFP) Meditation Outcomes

More Effective

Therapeutic models are considered effective when they have a treatment effect size of 0.8. The treatment effect size of IPF guided-meditation is 6.23 (Cohen).

Avoids Trauma Processing

The 3 Pillars Model sometimes resolves trauma without processing it — a gift because “trauma processing” can re-traumatize those with disorganized attachment.

Resolves Insecurity

Along with supporting a move into secure attachment (as measured by the AAI), the model can be used prior to trauma processing to resolve attachment insecurity.
