An idea is lingering in you, but it is vague and foggy – the words may still be missing to say what you mean. Or you don’t know exactly what are you working on, or how to proceed … there is only a feel, a hunch you cannot express clearly. Or perhaps there is a given task you don’t know how to approach.
Years ago when I was in a situation like this I did a Focusing session on what might be the best way to proceed. What came for me was the following: “I need to give myself something like an impulse from outside.” My next question was, “What might that be?” At other times, when I was stuck, I wished someone would hold my hand to encourage me and offer me validation while writing, creating a new course, or preparing a presentation.
We have all experienced how a patient listener can help us unlock our creativity. But in our daily lives, when working on our professional tasks and developing new ideas, we are often left alone with our troubles and challenges. Even if people are around, they might not listen without judging or silencing us with their ideas.
We, too, are often poor listeners when it comes to listening to ourselves: We reject our ideas before they are even born and dismiss our results as not perfect enough. Our words seem shallow, the next step impossible, and solutions incomplete. What we need is to deepen our thoughts and go beyond our usual ways of thinking without being stuck by the uncertainty that comes with it.
The good news is that great advice to help you overcome blockages and think more creatively is available to everyone. Thetaland® is a one-of-a-kind tool that gets you out of negative self-talk and into the richness of your inner experience to create new meaning to help the actual situation of the creative process.This course will help you to use Thetaland® as a companion for you and the people you work with. It can also provide a space for companions to enjoy and enhance creative thinking together.
The Thetaland® Toolbox is at the heart of the course. The Toolbox can be your trusted companion whenever you are thinking creatively. With the toolbox, you can always find a question or suggestion to overcome blockages and also be able to start a dialog with your felt knowing. You will experience the excitement and fun of exploring your inner world while feeling safe and sound.
The methodology used in Thetaland® is based on "Thinking at the Edge (TAE)," a practice that emerged from Eugene T. Gendlin's Philosophy of the Implicit. Thetaland® invites you to turn your attention to unclear topics and situations. It provides valuable triggers to nudge you beyond your usual ways of thinking and to tread new paths of thought.The Thetaland® Toolbox includes 12 dwellings in 6 colors, 144 question cards (12 per dwelling), 24 photo cards, 10 manual cards, 1 prologue card, and 1 epilogue card. Each color represents a different mode of being and thinking, while each dwelling represents a unique metaphor. This allows you to explore your topic from a variety of different perspectives.
You will gain a deep understanding of the idea of Thetaland® so you can use its full capacity.
The course helps you adapt the Thetaland method to your needs and specific applications and use the toolbox for your professional work.
Weekly impulses help you explore Thetaland® with ease while also sticking with a topic you are currently working on.
You will learn from and with other participants how to expand the possibilities of working with Thetaland®.
You will experience how the toolbox becomes your inspiring companion that is always at hand.
All sessions will be on Thursday, noon-2 pm EST (New York time). The May session will be at noon-2 pm EDT (New York Daylight Saving Time). Following are the dates of the online sessions and the Weekly Impulses you will receive by email.

Do I need to have the Thetaland® Toolbox for the course?

What happens if my Thetaland® Toolbox has not arrived by the start of the course?
You will get all the contents of the Toolbox as PDFs, which you can download.
What if I have to miss a session?
All the sessions will be recorded and available on the learning portal. Though you cannot ask questions during the sessions, you can get answers if you post them in advance in the community group.
