CLASS DESCRIPTION

Feeling creatively blocked or spiritually stuck can be an opportunity to learn new ways to train your mind to stay optimally open to possibility even amidst uncertainty. A new set of daily practices - wonder interventions - can lead you to a path of daily purpose and creativity right where you are. A wonder intervention is a practice that can momentarily dissolve habitual patterns of perception, open your mind with surprising delight, and train you to glean fresh insights to daily, spiritual, and creative challenges.

Wonder cracks us open to what is real and true. Beyond grit, focus, and 10,000 hours of deliberate practice, wonder is the surprising advantage of people who describe themselves as fulfilled and living on purpose. Defined as an "astonishment of the soul" and as the "the central feature of the human spirit," wonder is the one human experience that for a fleeting moment dissolves our habitual ways of perception so we can see the beauty and possibility of ourselves, one another, and our world more clearly.

In Tracking Wonder in Times of Challenge & Change, you will learn evidence-based interventions that train you to engage your work, your days, your surroundings, and your relationships with more purpose, openness to new experience, and creativity. These interventions are based on author, master teacher, and psychology of creativity expert Jeffrey Davis’s research on 200 top performers as well as his synthesis of research in positive psychology, neuropsychology, creativity, Zen Buddhism, and Yogic skillful means. These practices have helped entrepreneurs, executives, creatives, and people simply wanting a grounded approach to experiencing their days with more meaning and possibility.

Your use of a custom Tracking Wonder Journal lets you test out for yourself how to track moments of wonder from morning to evening. You will learn how to optimally engage specific neuronal networks that induce more openness for surprising creative problem-solving, switch awareness from intentional focus to deliberate daydreaming, experience more openness and ease in conversation, awaken your “young genius” strengths at work, watch your mind’s natural activity with meta-awareness meditation, and live in discomfort with less mind-closing worry and more heart-opening wonder.
