TAE Thinking at the Edge
People, especially intellectuals, believe that they cannot think! – Eugene Gendlin
A THREE LEVEL INTENSIVE TRAINING PROGRAMME VIA SKYPE
Below are notes from Hanspeter’s invitation (annotations from Katarina)
Thinking at the Edge – TAE is the second method developed by Eugene Gendlin together with Mary Hendricks Gendlin†. It is a philosophical practice which can be applied in a wide variety of fields, from science to business development, from education to community building, and not least to better cope with everyday life.
Hanspeter would like to announce the opportunity to attend an intensive training programm over skype in three Levels for those who are interested in a deep experience with TAE.
SPEAKING FROM THE FELT SENSE (STEPS 1- 5)
We select an individual topic we will work on and find our own, unusual words to express our understanding.
FINDING PATTERNS FROM INSTANCES (STEPS 6 – 9)
Experiences – stories, situations – help us to add more structure to our understanding.
BUILDING THEORY (STEPS 10 – 14)
We build a logical theory by interlocking the concepts found in Levels 1 and 2 to form sentences. We apply the theory to other fields and to our own one.
Each Level consists of five two-hour sessions Skype. We will meet once every two weeks.
The number of participants are limited to 8.
FORM OF TEACHING
We will systematically learn the meaning and the use of the 14 steps Eugene Gendlin designed for learning TAE.
We will discuss the philosophical background of the steps.
We will demonstrate the steps in class and practice in TAE- partnerships (during the lessons and in between).
Participants will work on their own subject. Part of Level 1 will be to find and formulate the topic.
The course will be taught over skype.
The classes will be recorded, so you can download and listen later if you miss a class.
Information can be found on www.focusing.org/tae.html, e. g. – An Introduction to TAE by Eugene Gendlin – TAE Steps in various languages
The class is addressed to those who would like to gain a deep insight into and experience TAE.
Experience in FOCUSING is not a prerequisite.
