Forward The Future You're Out To Create
Hands-on training provides a powerful introduction to the techniques and skills used within our prestigious elite-coaching programme.
The focus is on participation and practical experience rather than lecture, with numerous opportunities to address the issues encountered within your life. At the end of the course, you will have a very clear idea about how you can apply these skills within your life in all practical situations.
Gain a new level of mastery in creating and living a future of your own design—a future that fulfils what matters most to you. You’ll leave us with an expanded ability to take bold, effective action, and to make possible what once seemed impossible. Obstacles that once limited you will no longer stand in your way.
You’ll experience a new freedom and ease.
- Turn your intentions into accomplishments and produce extraordinary results.
- Discover the profound generative power of language and what that makes possible.
- Experience living in such a way that day-to-day life is a contribution and makes a difference, not only for you, but for the lives of those you touch and the world in which you live.
Participants are given an overview—a sense of what they might expect, as well as tips and ideas for how to get the most value. The daily schedule is reviewed, and there is an opportunity to ask questions.
The stage is set for people to engage powerfully with the material, maximize the value of their participation, and produce unprecedented results in a short period of time.
Here we visit the belief that while we think of ourselves as open-minded and objective, in fact our approach to ourselves, our circumstances, and others is often filtered and even obscured by pre-existing notions and ideas – by our upbringing, our values, and our past experiences.
In this session, we see those filters for what they are—an all-pervasive influence that profoundly colours our relationships with people, circumstances, and even ourselves. An awareness of these filters, and recognition of the striking limits that they impose, allows for a refreshing freedom. People, situations, and our approach to life alter dramatically.
Here we propose the view that in all human endeavours, context is decisive. That is, the hidden contexts from which we live determine what we see and what we don’t see; what we consider and what we fail to notice; what we are able to do and what seems beyond our reach. In this view, all behaviour—all ways of being and acting—are correlated to the context(s) from which we live our lives.
When these contexts become apparent and known, we can begin to see the unwitting process by which they were assembled, and the degree to which they govern our everyday lives.
Here we suggest that humans tend to collapse what happened; with the story we tell about what happened. This collapse happens so fast that it becomes hard to separate the two, and we think of them as one and the same. Almost immediately, and certainly over time, the story we tell ourselves becomes the way it is—the reality we know. It limits what is possible in our lives, robbing us of much of our joy and effectiveness.
When we are able to separate what happened from our story or interpretation, we discover that much of what we considered already determined, given and fixed, may in fact not be that way. Situations that may have been challenging or difficult become fluid and open to change. We are no longer limited by a finite set of options, and can achieve what we want with new ease and enjoyment.
Here we discuss the unproductive way of being or acting that includes a complaint that something shouldn’t be the way it is. Often, we don’t notice that while our complaints may seem justified, even legitimate, there is a certain payoff—some advantage or benefit we are receiving that reinforces the cycle of behaviour. At the same time, this way of being has steep costs, whether in our vitality, affinity, self-expression, or sense of fulfilment.
By recognizing this pattern, its costs, and how we have been keeping the pattern in place, we have the choice to interrupt the cycle and discover new ways of interacting that lead to new levels of happiness, satisfaction, and fulfilment in areas that are most important to us.
If someone says to us, “X is possible,” we would normally think that X does not now exist, and that its existence, even someday, is not certain. Our use of the word ‘possibility ‘is different from this ordinary usage. We are not speaking about something remote or something that may happen in the future. In this session, we look at the notion of possibility in a whole new light.
This new view of possibility has an immediate and powerful impact on who we are, how we live our lives, and how we see things – now, in the present. It has the power to move, touch, and inspire us; to shape our actions; and to shift the way we are being right now.
In this section, we explore the nature of what we think of as reality. This includes an objective world that exists independent of us, where cause and effect are key operative factors; where I, as an identity, is a collection of characteristics, attributes, and experiences from the past. In exploring the nature of reality and taking apart these myths, something else becomes possible.
Here, we observe not so much the particulars of the realities we construct, but that it is human to construct such realities, and then forget that we are the ones who constructed them. As a result, we no longer need to be confined to living within this limited range, and thus gain the freedom to express ourselves fully.
To distinguish something means to take something from an undifferentiated background and bring it to the foreground. Just as learning a new language builds a bridge to a new culture, or the capacity to balance makes riding a bicycle possible, drawing distinctions gives us a facility to navigate in areas that were previously inaccessible.
When these contexts become apparent and known, we can begin to see the unwitting process by which they were assembled, and the degree to which they govern our everyday lives. Distinctions give power and breadth to the ability to live creatively and successfully. With this ability to distinguish, we are left with new worlds and therefore opportunities for action.
Consider that one of the primary obstacles to effectiveness is fear. No matter how accomplished, successful, or courageous we are, fear and anxiety seem to play a role at some point in all our lives. Often, we allow our fears and anxieties to stop us – to determine how much we’ll risk, and to limit the range in which we live – assigning them an unwarranted power and magnitude in our lives.
When we see that our relationship to our anxieties and fears inadvertently gives them a life of their own, something else becomes possible. We find ourselves being powerful in the face of what has stopped us before, and are free to rediscover and pursue our passions in life.
WHO AM I:
In this session, we inquire into how our identity – who we consider ourselves to be – was created. This process began in childhood, as we gradually adopted ways of being and acting to deal successfully with things that didn’t quite go our way. By the time we reach adulthood, we have assembled a set of practices and approaches, attributes and characteristics, that give us a certain measure of success – that make up our personality, our style, and who we consider ourselves to be.
When we see that our identity was put together in response to something that we’ve determined shouldn’t be, the result is a new freedom in saying who we are – a fundamental shift in what we see and know as possible.
Much of what makes up today and even tomorrow seems to be an extension or variation of what has come before. What we see as possible – what we are working toward – is essentially a more, better, or different version of the past.
In this section, we are given a technology for putting the past where it belongs – in the past. We begin to design our lives as a free and authentic expression – from what is possible, rather than what has been.
Unencumbered by the past, we experience a greater level of vitality, well-being, and fun, and can enjoy a newfound sense of connection and intimacy with the people in our lives.
We take for granted that things “are” a particular way. To effect change, we go to work on altering circumstances, the people around us, even ourselves. In this session, we explore the difference between change and transformation. Change is essentially a comparison to something that previously existed. By its very nature, change is past-based. Essentially, change yields more, better, or different from what came before. Transformation, on the other hand, is an act of bringing forth or inventing. It is something created, and is inherently expansive and infinite.
Language is commonly thought of as a bridge to the world. Even the way we learn language implies that first there is a world. Then, in order to connect and deal with that world, we learn language. We seldom, if ever, consider that language may in fact be what brings that world into being.
In this session, we explore a new view of language that alters the very nature of what is possible. Language is seen as a creative act. Listening and speaking – actions we would normally see as commonplace – take on new dimensions and unexpected power. They become instruments of creation.
THE CHOICE TO CONTINUE:
The power to choose is uniquely human. We all have a high interest in shaping the course of our lives – making the right choices and pursuing what is important to us. One commonly held view regards choice as merely reacting to, or selecting among, the existing options. Here we take another view.
In this section, we explore choice as a profoundly human ability to create. When choice is understood and known in this way, what had previously seemed simply part of “the way things are” – inevitable or impervious to change – appears in a new light. We’re now able to choose – to have a say – about who we are and who we will be, as the author of our lives in any and all situations.
