Intuition is an innate aspect of human cognition. It is one of the ways that we are “wired” for knowledge, creativity, and understanding. But how frequently do we make use of this valuable resource?
When it comes to problems and conflicts, too often we don’t remember to consult our feelings, gut instincts, body wisdom, and creative imagination. More often than not, we approach problems, conflicts, and life-decisions with only half of our resources – just the analytical mind.
In a world of information-overload, our intuition helps us navigate more successfully through a myriad of choices and decisions. More than ever, we need to bring this profound capacity for “knowing” to the surface of our awareness and better utilize its capacity to guide us in meeting the challenges and opportunities that life presents. A growing body of scientific and psychological evidence shows that our intuition is working all the time, albeit at an unconscious level. Ignoring this important part of our cognitive process robs us of valuable input in decision-making and problem-solving. The key to a “whole brain” approach is to understand and utilize intuition as well as our analytic mind.
Lectures and workshop experiences during this one-day training will help you:
- To experience and understand a framework for using right-brain intuitive “knowing” to support and complement left-brain, logical “analysis.”
- To learn several contemplative and mindfulness practices to support the development of your intuition.
- To learn how to harness the benefits of the intuitive process in order to listen more deeply, understand your clients and what they really want and need, and to respond with more purpose and clarity to the problems and issues presented in mediation.
Drawing upon her experience, Mary Elizabeth Lynch will present a workable model for starting to apply intuitive reasoning to a wide range of life situations, including dispute resolution and conflict transformation interventions, and personal life decision-making.
