What are Embodying SELF Energy Online Groups?

Hi, I'm Dr. Steve Chee. Would you like to discover how to embody Self energy?

More than 20 years ago, I faced burnout early in my medical career. It was a gateway to a kundalini awakening. It inspired me to explore where Self energy comes from? 

Since then, I've delved into studying the mind-body-spirit connection. I've explored numerous practices such as meditation, yoga, qi gong, Traditional Chinese Medicine, psychology, Spiritual psychology, Internal Family Systems, Somatic IFS, Sensorimotor psychotherapy, shamanism, breath-work, Intuition medicine®, and energy medicine. I've integrated these into specific Somatic IFS informed skills and practices.

I have created these unique skills and practices to facilitate the inner and outer awareness that is vital for the emergence of Self energy. Self energy comes from the relationship between our Self and our parts. And when we embody our spiritual heart the light of Self energy emerges.

These skills and practices are more than just a solo exploration. We'll utilize them within the context of relationships, both with ourselves and others, in a safe and sacred way. Our hearts can guide us how to be with ourselves and with others.

Our small groups are limited to 12 members. Together, we'll tap into the power of community to deepen our experiences, witness growth, gain insights from one another, and find healing through belonging.

The program includes 8 weekly live online sessions, 2 additional weekly group practice opportunities, exclusive access to my original content combining Somatic IFS and spirituality, access to the Embodying SELF Love Online Program, a one-hour individual consultation with me, and a private online chat group for mutual support and encouragement.

Learn these Somatic IFS informed skills and practices to come home to yourself

One who knows others is wise. One who knows themselves is enlightened. ~ Based on Tao Te Ching

  • This is about discovering an inner place of renewal and rebirth, like how each day there is a new sunset and sunrise

  • This is about nurturing your own inner wisdom and compassion

  • This is about showing up for yourself and your parts that deepens inner trust and confidence

  • These Somatic IFS informed skills and practices are not...

  • This isn't “you just need to stick with this longer” or trying to push past resistance

  • This isn't a practice of spiritually bypassing our parts and issues. This is a practice of deepening attunement to our parts and inviting them to be who they were born to be

  • This isn’t about needing to follow any particular spiritual tradition or path. These universal approaches are inspired by traditional wisdom and are loving ways to be with ourselves and others.

  • This isn't a practice of separating ourselves from the world, our lives, and our purpose. This is a practice of following our hearts into the world and with others.

  • “I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul.” – Rumi

  • He is Quadruple Board Certified (Family Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Medical Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine) and is also a Certified IFS Therapist

  • He also served as faculty at the University of Santa Monica’s Spiritual Psychology program for 10 years where he worked with students in creating their own “radiant health & well-being program.”

  • What people say about being in one of his groups...

    "I attended your workshop at the IFS Conference. My heart is still full and cradling my parts. I want to thank you for sharing your brilliance. I also want to share the poem below that I wrote based on my experience in your workshop:


    Each breath in a hug for myself.

    Each compassionate witnessing of others a kiss on the forehead for me.

    Each Namaste to those in the world with me a bowing to the luminescence in all the different parts of myself.

    Each moment of awe in Nature a moment of awe for the life force coursing through me, the magical, inexplicable that I'm here.

    In crossing the field between the yin and the yang, within and without, we become one."

    Heather Leavesley

    Author of Journaling For Higher Self: A 6 Week Writing Program Based on Internal Family Systems.


    “Steve is an incredible facilitator on all levels… The idea of bringing the experience of unconditional loving in the body, and that I am in charge of that was beautiful. I love the idea of we are a soul with a physical body and we can experience love flowing throughout. Very powerful! Steve made me feel held, and safe and inspired me to try something new. Something I can use in my daily practice in connection with my love and my being.”


    Workshop participant

    "There are not many trainings or groups where I feel such a big difference as this one.  So after this, now I'm totally convinced. I like the format. I like the idea of self care and Self leadership, Self led self care. I like the size of the group... This is not therapy again. And thinking and somebody is sick... and what to do, but this is so nice. This is about me in everyday life, I don't need to be sick to be allowed to go there or it's not that a therapist is talking to me, it's about me. That's something I value so much. And ... (for) people who are in helping professions, this is just what they need."

    Ann-Katrin Bockmann, Doctor of Psychology, Level 3 IFS Therapist, Hildesheim, Lower Saxony, Germany

    I felt in you sharing your own experience with your younger parts, there was such a wonderful open space to invite (mine too)... And that also gave me a lot of trust, a space of trusting you. For me, that was very beautiful.. that was a specialty in your space you opened up.”


    The mini-sculpts were so effective. I was really surprised! I'm still surprised with the mini sculpt I had... I found that method really surprising in its effectiveness.”

    "When you gave us the material ... in the beginning of our sessions. I was so excited! I absolutely love all of the content. And it was really what I was hoping for when it came to me knowing more about what Self led self care actually is all about. I felt like that you nailed it because what you have offered is so valuable."

    Carla Budd, Registered Clinical Counselor, Vancouver, BC.  

    "I am really glad that I took the class. Each week, because of the safe and welcoming space that Steve created, along with sharing his knowledge, I was able to explore more deeply just what true self-care means for me. Attending the class was self care! I came away knowing that whatever self care looks like at different times and in different contexts, is valid and personal. It's an ongoing process that takes intention and attention and Steve helped affirm that for and with me."

    "I would definitely recommend this group. Why? Because it's worth it to participate and to learn and to grow!"

    Tamara Thomsen, Doctor of Psychology, Hildesheim, Lower Saxony, Germany

    "I loved the group and just the energy that you bring to it and just everyone's presence. It was really wonderful. In the presence of someone who has the kind of presence that you have, which is so compassionate and gentle and attentive. That's what my parts have always longed for."

    Julie Buchinksi

    Your questions answered...

    I'm going to miss a group, do you still recommend I participate? Can I get a recording of the group?

    The groups are highly experiential and while I don't recommend missing a group, we know that life sometimes has other plans. After each group, the recording group will be available for 7 days to encourage watching in a timely manner because the skills and practices build week to week. A recording of the practice sessions will be available through the end of the 8 week group.  

    Any suggestions about the time of day to do the group?

    While you aren’t acting as a therapist or facilitator for others, it is a space where participants may feel or express themselves deeply. It’s important to consider what time of day that would work best for you. Ideally, we would recommend a buffer before and after so you can get the most out of it and integrate the experience.  

    When will these groups be offered again?

  • Another round of groups will be offered in July 2024

  • Do you recommend that I take the group with someone I know?

    Great question! It's really about what works best for you. For some, it can be very meaningful and powerful to share an experience like this with a friend, family member or colleague. For example, one person invited a peer group of colleagues that she wanted to experience this with. For others, not knowing others but being with like-minded and like-hearted peers makes them feel safer to open up. Regardless, the groups are designed to harness the collective energy and to help everyone to connect with one another in a meaningful and supportive way.

    I've still got a question!
