Joseph says: “Walking-In-Your-Shoes® is a transformational process. It is a method that uses our natural gifts for transcendence and empathy to deeply relate to another being and bring out personal truth on any subject. I often refer to it as “spontaneous empathy”. One learns that the body has a special wisdom or intelligence beyond the rational thinking process and this can be accessed. People who have been Walked frequently report that they have never before felt so understood and empowered, and those who Walk experience a sense of liberation by temporarily "stepping out" of their often limiting self-concept or core belief. The profound implications of this process took me on a personal journey of practice and discovery for over 25 years. I have introduced and trained hundreds of people in WIYS® and have seen many lives transformed in positive ways by Walking-In-Your-Shoes®.”
Walking-In-Your-Shoes® (WIYS) is a powerful and highly effective sensorimotor processing technique used to access hidden information, transform obstacles, and gain personal empowerment for your life. (Journal of Humanistic Psychology 1993) By tuning into the body's intuitive wisdom, WIYS helps the client gain deeper understanding about any issue such as a family member, ancestor, relationship, colleague, animal, illness, business project, or personal subject, with safety and compassion.
Monterey Peninsula local real estate broker Leslie DeLuca who is sponsoring this program is a long time friend of Joseph's. They met as students in 1976 at Robert Louis Stevenson School in Pebble Beach. Leslie say's: "This technique has been a huge inspiration and life-changing breakthrough for me.
The process, along with Joseph’s empowering and insightful presence has given me new tools for taking my business to the next level. I am thriled to be able to share this process locally. It is empowering not only for your professional life, but personal life as well. It is easily incorparated into your daily routine and the technique makes sense. The results are stunning and powerful and have had a lasting impact on me. Whether you want to stop smoking, become your ideal weight, make more money, or improve your personal relationships, this technique can be used in your everyday life to make it better."
WIYS increases empowering awareness through movement leading to increased empathy, mindfulness, and somatic resourcing. In a group setting, under the guidance of a WIYS facilitator, the Walker commits to being any person or subject and tunes into the wisdom of the body through movement, describing in detail—both physically and verbally—the insights received. “Walking” is a combination of mindfulness, empathic movement, felt sense and transpersonal psychology. The Walker can explore the inner experience, life themes and core issues of any person or subject. The benefits include increased mindfulness, compassion, somatic resourcing and whole brain integration. People frequently report the process creates a sense of deep acceptance, empowerment and transformation regarding personal life themes, and shifts perception outside often limiting core beliefs or self-concepts. The Walking method shares a similar orientation to relational Constellation work, and Somatic Experiencing (used to treat trauma and PTSD) but uses a single “representation” combined with movement to reveal information from the body’s intuition or "field". A client may select a “Walker” to explore the subject or role, or may choose to do the “Walk” for themselves. Areas of focus include: Family & Relationships - Ancestors - Your Inner Critic – Weight-loss – Addiction - Money
- Health & Recovery –Business Success & Work - Creative Arts - Trauma & Healing.
This groundbreaking technique has been called “The future of coaching” and is widely used by psychologists, therapists, life coaches, mediators, business leaders, artists and performers, and health care practitioners all over he world. WIYS Institutes are currently located in the US, Germany, and The Netherlands.
