WHAT IS

CO-CONCIOUSNESS?

The state in which two or more alters are actively aware of each other or each other’s presence, it may extend so far as to be able to predict or feel another alter’s emotions or thoughts. It might also coincide, depending on the system, with co-fronting or substance use. Co-consciousness is a step toward communication that is often regarded as one of the biggest steps a system can take toward being healthily plural.
