What are Exiles?

Oct 25, 2019
“Exiles” is the name used in IFS for those parts of each of us formed where a person has been hurt, humiliated, frightened or shamed in their past. They will have parts that carry the emotions, memories and sensations from those experiences. “Managers” often want to keep those feelings out of consciousness and, consequently, try to keep these vulnerable and needy parts locked in inner closets. Those incarcerated parts are known as the Exiles.
