What is CHI

Holistic Transpersonal Transformation

Conscious Heart Integration (CHI) is an approach that can take you from where you are to where you want to be. Continually developed since 1990 by Uri Talmor, CHI integrates some of the most holistic, cutting-edge, or evidence-based models available: Internal Family Systems (IFS), gestalt psychotherapy, transpersonal counseling, Nonviolent Communication, Collaborative and Proactive Solutions, ACT, Byron Katie’s The Work, A Course In Miracles, and many others.

CHI is for people who want more than talk therapy. Of course, therapy includes being witnessed, heard, and deeply understood, but there is much more possible in healing spaces. Somatic, parts-based, and transpersonal models have opened the door for more experiential, holistic, and transformational psychotherapy.

Clients consistently describe CHI as being more effective than anything they’ve previously tried. You can expect skillful, gentle yet straightforward, clear guidance on how to best relate to any part of you, heal any burden it may carry, and reintegrate its energy as an invaluable resource.
Clients find themselves feeling more centered, calm, and clear about who they essentially are and the meaningful direction their lives can take.

Emotions seek expression and want to dance with your awareness. When properly acknowledged and held, they are a vital aspect of your authentic self and become soul whispers.


Your body is the most loyal companion you’ll ever have. When supported, it naturally self-organizes, self-renews, and becomes a sanctuary for emotional integration and joyful, playful expression.


When your emotions are balanced and integrated in your body, your mind feels the safety it needs and naturally slows down, becomes clear, and becomes a gentle encourager.


We want to understand and make meaning of our lives and world. When our emotional, physical, and mental body functions harmoniously, we naturally stay curious about what might be most true; continually exploring and expanding our sense of who we are and why we’re here.


We’ll work with your present-moment experience, connecting with and integrating all levels of your Self,

with compassion for your history and inspiration for your future.

IFS Demo Webinars


Internal Family Systems, Gestalt, and Transpersonal Parts Work in Action:

Parts-Work Demonstrations

These demos were born from repeated requests for more educational opportunities from Uri’s graduated Naropa University students and supervisees.
Uri has practiced IFS since his first intro training with Richard Schwartz in 2003, and dove right into a level 1 training with Richard Schwartz, Barb Cargill, and Toni Herbine-Blank in 2004. He’s been passionate about using and sharing IFS ever since, as he’s integrated it into Conscious Heart Integration (CHI) to give it a more expansive, holistic, and transpersonal expression.

Uri has had an exceptional journey learning from the best, and in 2007 was invited by Richard Schwartz to work at Castlewood Treatment Center, an eating disorder program Dick part owned, which specialized in IFS. Lori Galpern, one of the owners, complimented him by stating his IFS skills “rival my own.” The same year, Uri gave his first IFS conference presentation in 2007 (he presented a second time in 2019).


The next session is:

Demo #6: To Be Determined. Stay Tuned.

Once Every 8 Weeks

Virtual Group Supervision with Uri Talmor:

Internal Family Systems, Gestalt, and Transpersonal

For anyone looking to deepen their skills in Internal Family Systems (IFS) and/or Gestalt. We’ll also look at how to work with Transpersonal issues (such as spiritual emergence) and transpersonal parts as we explore case consultations.

Uri has several separate groups currently running. Each meets every four weeks. They are on Mondays from 9:00 am to 10:30 am or Tuesdays from 9:15 am to 10:45 am (all Mountain Time), and the fee is $75 per 90-minute group. Uri can sign the necessary forms for group supervision for licensure in Colorado, and he is a IFS-I Approved Clinical Consultant and can sign paperwork to support your IFS certification. Members of this group must pay regardless of attendance and these groups will be maxed out at 6 participants.

About Uri:
Uri graduated from the Transpersonal Counseling Program at Naropa in 2004. He was trained in IFS in 2003 and immediately integrated it into his Conscious Heart Integration process. He teaches the Gestalt class in the same Naropa program he graduated from and weaves IFS and Transpersonal techniques into his teachings. He’s worked at six different facilities, four dealing with eating disorders (one of which he was hired as a consultant to create the clinical model and interventions).
Uri loves teaching.
Below are some examples.

At this time, both groups are running a waitlist.
If you’d like to be added to the waitlist, please email Uri at to schedule a brief screening to assess your fit.


He is a MASTERFUL therapist. 

Watching him work with my classmates and experiencing his tenderness in my demo was like feeling a warm breeze as you watch a ribbon gently flow in the wind. It’s beautiful, it’s empathetic, it’s unconditional positive regard, it’s healing, it’s transformational, it’s transpersonal, it’s trauma-informed, it’s a multi-dimensional education-style, it’s first-hand experience with felt-sense shifts. It’s life-changing. I could go on and on about how incredible he is to watch and how inspiring he is but you know this already. 

Furthermore, you know the value of observing high-quality therapist demos. Uri is that! We are learning from the best Gestalt teacher and that is exactly why I signed up for his course.“

-Former Naropa Counseling Graduate Student


Uri is one of the most caring, compassionate, and skilled individuals that I have encountered in this field.  

I had the pleasure of working alongside him for a brief but invaluable stint of time about twelve years ago and as his colleague, I learned so much.  He brought a wealth of wisdom to our team.  Since that time, Uri has remained a dear friend and cherished colleague.  

I have referred numerous clients to him and have only heard raving reviews from each of those grateful individuals.  

The IFS model (which Uri introduced me to) has been a wonderful addition to my own practice and I will forever be grateful for Uri’s generosity in sharing so much of himself with me.”

-Tammy Corrales


Uri Talmor’s expertise is absolutely incredible, unparalleled. 

My class started off this year-long course with him. Gestalt has been an especially intimate and deep dive for us all. Uri is a master in this field, and has been an integral part of Naropa for me.

-Former Naropa Counseling Graduate Student


“Uri is one of the best therapists I know, he is also a phenomenal teacher and his training is extremely helpful and informative.

He is kind, patient, and clear, and gets where you’re at and what you need to improve your skills. I highly recommend Uri!”

Maya Golan


“Uri’s class is without question the highlight of my week and my time at Naropa and I find such deep inspiration from his teachings and presence. 

The level at which Uri (and I know so many other students) connects and draws inspiration (towards our future careers) as well as provides professional training resources and counsel, is on another level.

-Former Naropa Counseling Graduate Student


“As a professional with 25 years of experiencing training therapists and seeing clients, I am aware that therapists as skilled, ethical, and compassionate as Uri Talmor are exceptionally rare. 

Uri has invested tremendously in his training and growth as a therapist–much more than is typical for therapists. He is highly trained in the most cutting edge therapeutic approaches

He is talented in his work with individuals, couples, and families as well as clients of all ages and with a wide variety of life challenges.  Uri is a kind, understanding, nonjudgmental, and committed person who gives his all to his clients. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

-Shelley Haddock


“Uri has an exceptionally deep understanding of transpersonal psychology and the innate gifted ability to work with clients at the level of the personality and the level of spirit. His clarity of communication and his light hearted humor coupled with sincere empathy creates a warm and engaging atmosphere of discovery, healing and shifting of consciousness. 

Without a doubt Uri is one of the finest therapists, teachers, and theorists I’ve encountered or had the pleasure to be on a team with.”

-Delene Cole


“I remember my initial impression of him was that he embodied compassion as well as being knowledgeable and very human. Having Uri as my gestalt teacher this year has only furthered my initial impressions of him. 

I find him to be the most balanced Naropa faculty member I have had thus far, in that he is both flexible and organized, compassionate and knowledgeable, and most importantly, incredibly caring and passionate about his work as a counselor and teacher. I admire these qualities and getting to have class with him each week inspires me to become more balanced myself and to continue to grow into the type of person and counselor I want to be in the world. 

Uri’s class is my favorite class I have had at Naropa thus far.“

-Former Naropa Counseling Graduate Student
