To bring about inner resources to navigate the human journey
“Dialogue ['shared word' or 'allow the word to come through'] is the most sophisticated aspect of human communication. InnerDialogue uses a non-verbal interaction that provides unparalleled accuracy for therapeutic and noetic understanding between client and practitioner; by bypassing the conscious mind to elicit information”. – Solihin Thom
“InnerDialogue strangely, is a misnomer, for the ultimate outcome is one of silence; quietness stillness and surrender to the Divine. This practice of interior stillness opens the door to the Soul and to the Creator. However, the practice of InnerDialogue as a therapeutic dialogue-based instrument augments the person’s contact with this inner life and ultimate connection with the One”. – Solihin Thom
InnerDialogue™ is a site created to help explain and illustrate the nature, nuances and origins of an ontological body of work. Ontology, at the least, refers to what is existent (in a human) and what is contingent. InnerDialogue is the narrative that gives rise to understanding what factors create the contingencies that preclude the existence of factors that support wellbeing, health, dynamism and wholeness. In so doing, we initiate a chain of events that provide the possibility of these missing elements to manifest or develop in the client, which then facilitate changes in them.
The practice of InnerDialogue is multi-hued, as it encompasses many therapeutic modalities. It is primarily a non-verbal system that has evolved over time, that assists in the unfolding of a narrative from a client. The narrative is the ontological pattern that pre-existed and led to the client’s present dilemma, question, state or illness. It is a system that enables the practitioner-companion to ask questions–but in a dialogue-led fashion. The narrative ensues, using kinesiology and mudras (see next paragraph), allowing the two (practitioner and client) to shape the narrative but also to be led to an appropriate therapeutic process which will aid healing or resolution. Each therapeutic modality (of which there are many many types included) is carried by the underlying philosophy and inner understanding that humans consist of a hierarchical arrangement of natures. These fundamental elements are made of mass, and consequently affect us, (like gravity always makes an object fall when in free space). These internal elements may also be affected by a similar mass outside of itself – e.g. our feelings are touched by someone else’s state. Mass is considered as potential energy, and when it changes position (sic) it exerts a force–it is this force that affects the client. These forces can arise from within or from outside. They are the accident of ontological enquiry, and the narrative illustrates what accidents have occurred that are still affecting the constitutional, physiological or somatic, ambulatory and sexual, and psychological mechanisms of the body. Each practitioner, in their training develops an initial cursory and as time develops, a much deeper understanding of these inherent forces; so they are cognizant of and have experienced their action to some degree. The experiential understanding takes time to learn, digest and put into practice.
The work is augmented by the actual therapeutic modality created by the originator and developer of this work Solihin Thom DO (UK) DAc (SL). This involves both kinesiology–manual muscle testing–as a neurosomatic feedback system and mudras or hand gestures (and the occasional body mudra) as a gesture-driven proto-language that provides a non-verbal narrative from the client.
The practitioners that are occasionally portrayed on this site may offer personal ontological sessions, or workshops (often as a series) that are therapeutic in nature–in the context of ontological kinesiology and which carry a specific therapeutic modality–or may facilitate personal and group work or offer classes in this ontological approach in business management or similar. This process is taught in the United States, Russia, Austria and Europe.
Solihin and Alicia Thom [founders of Ad Humanitas] are the developers of InnerDialogue. They are also the developers of the Human Template Model (HTM): a constellation process which allows for the revelation of state, its resolution, in a gradual unfolding and re-arrangement of internal disharmony. This constellation process has similarities to Hellinger’s Family Constellation work, being developed parallel and over the same time period as Hellinger, but completely separate and unconnected. These constellations deal with levels of being rather than unfinished family dynamics, although these too, impact the constellation and are revealed when necessary.
The Thoms are presently on sabbatical, having completed seven and half years in Russia, working for a large multi-hued corporation. Their mandate was to introduce this model to initiate changes in the way business is done in Russia. The constellation process was one of the main tools, coupled with comprehensive analysis and diagnostic understanding as to the remedial work that was required to re-arrange and re-organize the various companies, departments, divisions etc.
