Tossing an idea back and forth, mentally...
I have two separate tracks going. One is class materials, handbook, level material outlines to keep track of progress, the usual.
The other is more "esoteric" for lack of a better way of putting it. Through some discussion with Rory Miller and Marc MacYoung, I have started to write about reading people, places and situations in a way to keep yourself safe, and still enjoying the world. It has turned into a bigger thing than I expected. This has led to a question I would like to throw out to see what people think.
One of the precepts I am bringing out in this subject is awareness of self.
If you are not aware of yourself and your internal state, you cannot reliably read the real signals occurring around you. If you are angry, you can read frantic or scared as threatening, as an example.
So the question, in an adrenal state, how do you teach someone to access a"higher" state of internal awareness?
Any ideas? Am I trying to untangle a hairball that doesn't need it?
