We believe that every little thing in life has countless points of view. The real challenge is to look at things from a new viewpoint, one that was previously out of our sight. We believe that change almost always starts when we are open and ready to take a chance and look at things from new perspectives, a new point of view.
A cornerstone of the Points of You® method is the interaction between the right brain, the intuitive and emotional half of the brain, and the left brain, the logic and analytical half of the brain. This occurs when we look at a photograph and a word at the same time. The photograph stimulates our right, creative half of the brain, while the word activates the left, analytical half of the brain. The simultaneous stimulation of the two brain hemispheres creates a struggle between the emotional and the rational, momentarily “shorting out” the vigilant defense mechanisms of our mind. This “deliberate confusion” gives the mind a short break from our preconceived ideas on how things “should” or “ought” to be, and allows our mind to open up to new places inside ourselves, shifting our point of view.
The method contains 4 steps;
Pausing allows us to shift our frequency. It is a necessary step on our journey to break free of our “thought loop” and automatic reactions and actions, especially those preventing us from being where we want to be.
In this stage, we search for the unknown, not knowing where it may lead us. We allow a shift from our familiar comfort zone – to a world of new opportunities, insights and AHA moments.
Now we focus on our insight.
We use guiding questions to clarify and define exactly which of the
newly discovered possibilities
is right for our journey or
for the issue at hand.
It’s time to advance from
insight to action. We draft an
action plan or a To-Do-List
that outlines the necessary steps and sets the timetable
for realizing our insights.
EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC
Our workshops enable you to take a step back from your daily routine, and look into the basic elements of life from a different perspective. By deciding to participate in one of our workshops, you also choose to pause for reflection; and when you're ready to add some questions on the seemingly obvious topics, you usually stumble across unexpected but precise answers.
Points of You® workshops are not conceived as frontal lectures; they are experiential processes. This allows for a deeper connection to occur between the participants, but more importantly, within the individual.
