CREATIVE EMBODIED THINKING
EXPERIENCE THE MORE OF WHAT YOU KNOW
PART ONE - SPEEKING FROM YOUR BODILY KNOWING
Are you aware of how much you know? By connecting to your body’s implicit knowing you will find new, deeper and clearer meanings of a subject you choose. In our three part interactive online course, we will guide you, in a playful way, through the mysteries of Thinking At the Edge (TAE). We welcome Focusers and non Focusers.
In part one - Speaking from your Bodily Knowing - we will guide you through the first five steps of TAE. You will find your own language by working with personal experiences that are relevant for your topic and by reflecting your own meaning of common words.
In our three part interactive Webinar, you will experience your body’s implicit knowing. As it unfolds you will find new, deeper and clearer meanings, of a subject you choose from your professional or personal field of interest. You will learn and experience how to connect to your felt sense, an inner vague sense of knowing more without words. By opening a space for the unclear and murky feeling, you will discover new understandings of your topic.
Our method is based on the philosophical practice, Thinking at the Edge (TAE), originally developed by Eugene Gendlin, founder of the well-known method for personal growth called Focusing. TAE is a structured, 14 step process and we will make it easy and playful.
In this first course, we will guide you through the first five steps. You will learn to connect to your bodily-knowing and find words to express it in your own logical terms.
As participants, you will work together in the class and in pairs on your own chosen topic. We will introduce TAE with interactive lectures, discussions and demonstrations. You will be invited to share your thoughts and results. We also encourage participants to practice inbetween the classes.

In the second part you will work more in depth with experiences that feel relevant for your topic. More meaning emerges from each instance and from what is common to them.
