Chloë Goodchild in conversation with author and psychotherapist Malcolm Stern, discussing eldership, fierce initiation, grief, pilgrimage, human evolution and more.
The VOCE Dialogues offer a simple, accessible in-depth ground for poets, authors, musicians, visual artists, and visionary teachers to share and disseminate their insights about the transformative practice of contemplative, creative and compassionate communication.
Malcolm Stern has worked as a group and individual psychotherapist for more than 30 years. He is Co-Director and Co-founder of Alternatives at St James’ Church in London and runs groups internationally.
His approach involves finding where the heart is and helping individuals access their truth. His London One Year Group is the centrepiece of his work and has been successfully operating since 1990. In it he creates an environment of trust, integrity and community, where participants can become skilled in relationships, communication and managing difficult conversations. The ultimate learning is to Slay your dragons with compassion, which is also the title of his new book to be published by Watkins in September 2020.
His book on relationships Falling in Love, Staying In Love, published in 2004, is available through Little, Brown Book Group and, as an e-book, through Amazon. Together with Vanessa Lloyd Platt, Malcolm co-presented the Channel 4 series on relationships Made for Each Other in 2003 and 2004.
Malcolm and Chloe are both speakers at the Compassionate Mental Health conference, taking place in South Wales on 25-26 September 2019.
Chloë Goodchild is an international singer, innovatory educator, author and founder of The Naked Voice (1990) and its UK Charitable Foundation (2004), dedicated to the realization of compassionate communication in all realms of human life. Deafness in childhood catalysed Chloë’s deep encounter with her inner self, and began a lifetime’s experiential research into the voice as a catalyst for personal evolution and global transformation.
