The Tyranny of Language:
How to consciously use words instead of unconsciously allowing words to use you
with Russ Giles
This interactive seminar (that means lots of participant participation!), explores how language actually limits and dictates the reality we perceive. And what can be done about that. While the seminar involves a group of people, the insights (both ahah’s and uh-oh’s) will be highly individualized to each participant. Most of the exercises involve practicing specific techniques you can use on others AND especially on yourself to usurp the tyrannical grip of language that limits your perceptions about your world and yourself.
Some things you might discover (not simply as concepts, but as knowings):
- This language you got in your head isn’t even yours.
- The most profound beliefs you have are the ones you don’t know about.
- Most the time you think you are thinking; you’re not.
- When you find yourself caught in a rut or a hole, the first thing to do: STOP DIGGING!
