Praise for The Final 8th

“In this remarkable, potent, and deeply original work, Bridgit Dengel Gaspard gives us ways to explore and inhabit the gift of safely and creatively living with personas beyond the local ego. What becomes possible then is an emergent humanity that is equal to the challenges of our time.”  

Jean Houston, PhD, Chancellor of Meridian University and author of The Possible Human

“Having experienced Bridgit’s work in person numerous times, I am elated to see her magic now available in this wonderful book, The Final 8th. This important book adds fresh new insights to help you go all the way with your goal. In the process you transform from being a contender to being victorious.”

Brett Bevell, Omega program strategist, faculty, and author of 

Energy Healing for Everyone: A Path to Wholeness and Awakening

"Using the Voice Dialogue process to break through persistent personal blocks is a brilliant innovation. But it's not something to try on one's own. To succeed requires unparalleled support and guidance. Luckily, that's exactly what Bridgit provides in this book. Follow her lead and the magic will surely unfold."

Raphael Cushnir, author of The One Thing Holding You Back

"Bridgit Dengel Gaspard has given us a delightfully insightful joyride through the powerful process of Voice Dialogue.  This exuberant book introduces us to the rich diversity of our inner selves. At the same time deep and lighthearted, The Final 8th is the perfect guidebook for breaking through impasses that stand—unconsciously—in the way of our fullest development and the achievement of our desired goals."

Peeka Trenkle, MDiv., Founder of the Green Medicine program at the NY Open Center

"Having taught thousands of people the art of creative vision, I have come to understand that you can do ‘all the right things’ and still struggle with accomplishing your goal. Bridgit unravels the mystery of why you are stuck in a simple, easy-to-understand way. The final eighth process liberates you to truly go from impasse to kickass.”

Barbara Biziou, vision coach and author of The Joy of Ritual

“Bridgit Dengel Gaspard has written an important and amazing book about working with and healing our inner conflicts. To this end, she has brought the voice dialogue method to the world in a way that is profoundly accessible and strikingly contemporary. Here we learn that we have many parts or selves within us and that they do not all want the same things. She shows us how to use voice dialogue and other strategies to bring these parts out into the open so that healing and resolution may occur. Filled with evocative and compelling examples, The Final 8th gives us a way to use all our inner resources and to dramatically improve our lives. This book is a gift.”

Scott Kellogg, PhD, director of the Transformational Chairwork Psychotherapy Project, New York City,

and author of Transformational Chairwork: Using Psychotherapeutic Dialogues in Clinical Practice

“The Final 8th is a recipe for true embodied success. Bridgit is a master of transforming wounds into superpowers. She will guide you to achieve your dream and become more whole in the process.”

"Stuckness can be paralyzing, and that’s when you need help. I highly recommend The Final 8th, which gives you a wildly new type of GPS to access the parts of yourself you’ve lost, like your creative, curious, and optimistic alter egos.”

J. Plunky Branch, founder of N.A.M.E. Brand Records and Plunky & Oneness,

author of Plunky: Juju Jazz Funk and Oneness

"An engagingly written, candid, and very useful guide for those who are stuck and don’t know why. I plan to steal many of Bridgit’s ideas!”

Phillip Lopate, author of Portrait Inside My Head

“The Final 8th provides readers with an invaluable voice dialogue approach to understanding their unique stuckness, but those who read and engage with the book’s abundant, accessible, and clear exercises will shift their relationships with and resolve, often in unexpected ways, those pesky last steps toward their goals. Bridgit Dengel Gaspard, through her deep life experience, clarity of thought, ability to surprise, and playful wit, comes alive and becomes a trustworthy ally on these pages.”

Reggie Marra, author of Killing America, The Quality of Effort, and And Now, Still

"If you have an unfinished novel in a drawer, perfect gym attendance for the first two weeks of January and not the rest of the year, or any number of incomplete projects weighing you down, this book is for you. This is a dynamic guide to crossing the finish line—whatever your goal may be. Pulling from her vast experience as a performer, therapist and voice dialogue guru, Bridgit Dengel Gaspard offers concrete, insightful techniques that will have you breaking through your personal barriers to achieve your desires. Give yourself the gift of accomplishment with this fun and fast read."

Beth Stevens, Managing Director,

“Bridgit offers a brilliant, innovative, and compassionate approach to problem solving. It allows readers to learn just the things they need to know about themselves to get unstuck and make better life decisions — things they probably would never have discovered without her guidance. Once she articulated the concept of the final eighth and spelled out the steps required for authentic and meaningful success, I thought, ‘Of course! This makes perfect sense!’ But I wouldn’t have thought of them without her wonderful, workable process.”

Fran Sorin, author of Digging Deep: Unearthing Your Creative Roots through Gardening

"Bridgit’s Book “The Final Eighth” makes having road blocks, limiting beliefs or resistance to finishing any project - a creative process of self-discovery.  I love her tender, humorous and light touch in making some of our greatest challengers into our lifelong friends.  And with this tool bag filled with tool - our obstacles transform into stepping stones on each of our unique paths. This book is a gift."
