Carrying forward by languaging – instancing – crossing
Sunday, June 2 – Tuesday, June 4, 2013
Hotel Seeblick, Emmetten
We are happy to welcome you to the Post Conference
after the 25th International Focusing Conference in Switzerland.
What does experiencing do with the meaning of our words? What does stepping into
the meaning of words do with our experiencing? How do situations we lived
through imprint our thinking and feeling?
What do explicit structures contribute to felt connections? And how does felt
meaning effect logical structures? How does explicating effect the thickness of
what we mean?
The way we treat questions like the above is not only of paramount
philosophical interest, especially today; they also matter greatly to how we can
do therapy, how we deal with social affairs – political and economical, and how
we treat each other privately. Last but not least – how we gain deeper access to
what is important to us.
TAE is a method to explore the field of crucial questions. To practice on the
edge of explicit form and implicit knowing provides a deepening of insight for
your own sake. This may also open up horizons for further thought that go far
beyond the personal scope. That is why TAE is such an amazing exercise: it
supports personal processes and at the same time it is a philosophical practice
that makes you think differently about a lot of things. You learn it by doing
it. And by doing it, it becomes clear, how much philosophy can learn from daily
life, and how much daily life can benefit from a broader philosophical approach.
In the conference we will share our experience with TAE. We will discuss
questions concerning the practice of the steps. We want to reflect what it means
to be able to do TAE. Connecting the practice with the philosophy, from which it
came - might be nothing less than another instance of Thinking-at-the-Edge!
The style of the conference will be an open space: The relevant topics will
emerge from everybody’s contributions. The discussions in the plenum will be
carried forward in different workshops.
The Post Conference will start in the afternoon on Sunday, June 2 and will end
on Tuesday, June 4 after lunch.
