Find out why people do not always understand or appreciate your natural patterns. Instead of projecting that they should be more like you, imagine how they may be different. What an epiphany!
Discover what makes us different and interesting at the same time. Recognize the hidden beliefs and assumptions that get us in trouble when others do not understand us. This course introduces us to all the creative options available so we can start placing individuals in effective frameworks for real connection. Explore the differences between our parental imprinting and who we really are. This class clarifies our Creative Nature so we can be more authentic in our interactions with others.
Seeing Our Creative Natureâ€¨
Understanding and accepting our authentic creative nature transforms our perception of how we show up in relationships. All connections have an energetic footprint or structure where we experience degrees of resonance or dissonance. The Creative Uniqueness course clarifies these and other common differences and similarities. We introduce the student to the range of choices available so they can become clear about who they are. It also clarifies what is creatively natural for our expression and how we have been trained and conditioned away from our authentic Self. This allows us to diminish our self-identification with pretenses or defenses so we can become more responsive and less reactive. Honoring our natural way of also freeing up energy that can lead to more generous and loving interactions with others. When we discover our true Creative Nature, life becomes easier. People do not resist us and we do not have to struggle to be who they want us to be. We invite everyone to explore their inner design and distinguish it from how they compromise themselves to be accepted, respected or esteemed.
Since this series clarifies the differences and similarities between individuals, it creates a space of neutrality that enables accepting each other without judgment. We introduce fifteen creative compatibility factors that empower participants to notice, accept and love themselves more fully. The fifteen factors are: 1) Primary Creative Expression (one of seven types); 2) Pacing (the size and speed of assimilating our experience); 3) Communication Process (one of seven communication sequences); 4) Decision-Making Approach (one of four types of engagement); 5) WorldView (where we are in our lessons); 6) Secondary Creative Expression (one of seven types); 7) Defensive Style (one of nine possibilities); 8) Mental Body Intelligence (one of seven); 9) Pretenses (four possibilities); 10) Creative Expression Imprinting; 11) Goals (one of seven types); 12) Modes (three or four of seven); 13) Attitudes (one of seven); 14) Birth Order (one of seven) and 15) Body Types (three or four of seven).
These perspectives reflect different forms of self-identification. We deny our own creative power when we believe our actions, feelings, emotions or beliefs must be validated by someone else to be true. This places our power in their hands. We also become confused when we accept false assumptions, conditional forms of love or distortions/denials of power from others, believing they are for our own good. As a result, we get caught up in partially correct (or defensive) views (about ourselves) that prevent us from fully manifesting who we are. When parents and other caretakers, with the best of intentions, reinforce ways of being that are not authentic for us, they are training us to hate ourselves. Through these interactions, we feel invalidated in our natural way of operating, so we try to adopt their ways of being to gain acceptance. This process is called â€˜Imprintingâ€™. To grow, we need to honor the natural way we engage others and consciously de-emphasize our learned patterns from the past.
Course participants will also learn how to work with differences (between others and themselves) by honoring their natural contribution (despite how we believe this may affect us). We discover that when we understand the true nature of their contribution it allows us to re-examine our own concerns and determine new, and effective ways to be present with others. Usually, we are holding on to painful attachments or past events we need to now release or resolve to re-engage life. This helps us reclaim our autonomy and defines our nature independently from others. The more we learn to accept and love our Self, the less concerned we are about the opinions people hold. This translates into greater flexibility, fun and creative power in all of our relationships, personal or business. If you want to improve the quality and creativity of all your partnerships ten-fold, join us for twelve consecutive jam-packed Creative Uniqueness evenings.
CU is the preliminary survey course required to learn how to identify Compatibility Factors in others. Recognizing Creative is its sister class the takes what you have learned and supported you seeing it in everyday life. We learn how to apply the information to ourselves first so we can then begin to â€˜seeâ€™ others clearly. It is also the prerequisite for the Inner Seeing series. We will discuss the 15 Compatibility Factors during the Intro night. We also recommend previous experience with Common Neutral Ground, as it will make accepting differences and uncomfortable similarities easier. We learn from in-class discussions, pictures, and videos, some of which will be downloadable and viewable before class. We may ask everyone bring a few photos of their families and partners (signing a release to allow us to use them in facilitator training and other coursework) so they can learn how to apply this information directly.
