Work directly with the most intelligent part of your brain
For adults (teens welcome) • 90 minutes
Saturday 1:30pm • Centennial 15
Time and location subject to change (what isn’t?)
Albert Einstein is one of many who made good use of “mind experiments” or “Receptive Visual Thinking,” a wellspring of creativity and understanding.
All of us have a stream of “back-of-the-mind” stuff running all the time. You prove that to yourself, every time you take a shower. This back-of-the-mind stuff reflects your deepest knowledge, understanding, and intuition. And it has more than 40 times the capacity of the part of your brain that maintains your conscious, verbal focus. This stream reflexively responds to whatever is going on, including any questions or problems you may be dealing with.
Much of this session will focus on how to notice and make sense of the image-metaphors constantly flowing through the back corners of your mind. There’s a vast storehouse of knowledge, wisdom, and creativity hiding there. And you can access it.
The Skinny: 3 things you will get from this session
- Learn how to effectively observe your own reflex imagery
- Learn how to use what you see to solve problems, answer questions, and innovate
- Learn how to test and validate your answers accurately
