Voice Dialogue Summer Academy – Italy
All levels training for professionals.
July 12 – 18, 2020 in Varese, Italy – with Robert Stamboliev, Miriam Dyak, Ozlem Sarioglu and staff
A lot has happened since our first summer program in 1983. Voice Dialogue and the Psychology of Selves have become increasingly popular in the world. It is gratifying to see the work spreading into many areas, such as business coaching and training, systems of body work, spiritual disciplines, and a variety of approaches to therapy and counselling. Inner Critics, the Inner Child, Pushers, Pleasers and many other similar terms have become household words.
As wonderful as this is, the downside is that the work can become superficial, and that it loses the connection with the Psychology of Selves and Transformational Psychology from which it derives.
In the Voice Dialogue Summer Academy you will be working creatively with Voice Dialogue and the underlying principles of the work and deepening the connection with its roots, the Psychology of Selves and transformational psychology.
These basic axiom’s are described in the International Voice Dialogue Agreement.
As much as possible, we want to support a sense of an ongoing movement towards excellence as we each continue to develop in our personal process and continue to develop and expand towards excellence in our professional work.
Our intention is to create a conference that is inspiring and a safe vessel for all the processes that will take place. A magical space that is facilitating for all present to take the next step.
The program is suitable both for experienced Voice Dialogue practitioners who work on a Masters Level, as well as for professionals who want to get the know the work and are interested in learning more about it.
By working in different level sub-groups led by different trainers each participant can learn on his or her own level.
This program is very suitable for people who prefer to follow such a longer program, once or twice, rather than various shorter training blocks over a longer period. The Voice Dialogue Summer Academy thus offers an alternative route to registration in the Register Master of Transformational Psychology. You can read more about this at the end of this page.
Recommendation by Hal and Sidra Stone
We are absolutely delighted to recommend this wonderful program: ITP’s Voice Dialogue Summer Academy!
Robert Stamboliev sponsored our major international Voice Dialogue conferences ever since 1983. We thoroughly enjoyed working with him for twenty-five years and have the fondest memories of our times together. Robert really knows how to bring together a wonderful group and create a meaningful and deeply satisfying experience for all – and we know how difficult this can be! The venues he chose were magnificent, and the content and planning deeply satisfied the needs of the body, the mind and the soul for those who attended.
And now he is going forward; Robert is taking the next step – with the accumulated experience of many years, he is inspiring the next generation of seekers in its journey of transformation. And a most fascinating journey it is! Robert has always understood that the Voice Dialogue process provides an amazing vehicle for the voyage of transformation but he has never confused the Voice Dialogue process and the Psychology of Selves with the Journey itself. He has always been connected to the magic as well as the form of the work and we can guarantee that your experience will be varied, rich, and soulful.
This newest international training seems aptly named: The Voice Dialogue Summer Academy. The only sadness we have is that we can’t be there with all of you sharing in this experience. But – after so many years of participating with Robert in these programs – you may be sure that, even though we will not be there in person, we will join you in spirit.
Our very best wishes to all of you!

Recommendations by participants
I couldn’t have wished for more competent, experienced and wise guides as Robert, Miriam and Ozlem in this beautiful environment in Italy. With wisdom, humor, perspective and years of experience they seem to find it quite natural to invoke magic.” – Niels Smit Duyzenkunst
These days made it possible for me to love myself in all my aspects, even my self-criticism and frightening and vulnerable parts. So now I feel closer to myself by being more openly related to my selves. – Dinja van Gestel
Upfront I thought: “Is this not too woolly for me”, not a dramatic person myself. And at the same time: “What will happen if I surrender myself to it, how deep will this go and can I handle that”. It turned out to be such a wonderful process. Came out what wanted to come out, very authentic in a very gentle way. – Hedy Heijting
We worked with the theory, did exercises, sharing and we worked with intentions. This combination helped to transform the work into a personal journey(…) Being a therapist myself I have not before experienced a therapy form in a comparable intensity, energetically or emotionally as with Voice Dialogue. – Gert Haringsma
