    What is Reflection?

    It's a way of not doing the same thing, the same way; but always expecting better results (the classic definition of managerial insanity). It is a:

    1. Mental process allowing you to monitor your behavior.

    2. Method for determining what's working and what's not. 

    3. Way to monitor practice to keep improving it.

    4. Learned process accelerating the drive to mastery.

    It's true, most people DON'T LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE and they practice a skill, but SHOW NO IMPROVEMENT OR SLOW IMPROVEMENT. The reason why? They don't use reflection. At very powerful technique that's rarely taught in universities (see story below)

    Learning reflection in this online course will help you to:

    • Not make the same mistake again,
    • Learn from experience, and
    • Enhance practice,

    Reflection is a learnable method to determine what's working and what's not.

    A Personal Story On The Importance of Reflection

    To my lasting regret, understanding of reflection came much too late in life. What happened was this.

    When I was 52 years old, I accidentally learned about reflection. I happened to be sitting in a lecture at Korea University in Seoul. The course delved into world religions and this particular lecture dealt with Buddhism.

    The professor mentioned that Buddhism had a long tradition of learning through reflection. This aroused me from my normal state of lethargic mindlessness and I asked the professor, “What is reflection exactly?”

    She replied that it was a mental process where you periodically step back and think about an experience and then figure out what went well and what could have gone better. And then she said, “The school of life teaches; but only if you are willing to reflect on experience.”

    Here I was, a creature of the university. Much of my life was spent in a library with my nose in the textbook or in a state of confusion reading scholarly research journals. And yet, I had never been exposed to one of the most valuable tools of learning ever.  — Murray Johannsen, Course Developer & Instructor

    You face a choice. You can do what the system wants or you can define a vision for yourself.” Murray Johannsen

    The mind is a image processor, using over 10 types of imagery. Yet, the educational system fails us; for it doesn't let us know about the untapped resourses waiting to be accessed.

    The program focuses on learning how to use mental imagery to construct a vision of the future and develop skills. It includes numerous practical techniques that when practiced and mastered result release the untapped resources lying latent within us all.


    You learn about:

    Using imagery for a change

    Discover the ten types of images used by your mind our options to deploy imagery to make things happen —

    Reduce confusion and doubt by knowing how to construct compelling, well-defined goal imagery

    Practice and perfect process imagery to learn new skills faster.

    Level 1 Learning: Choose The Path of Knowledge and Understanding

    For those who want to know, to understand, to satisfy your curiosity. Of an online class with fellow students and an instructor

    Level 2 Learning: Build Skills With Coaching on the Dual Track

    Practice makes perfect. You have more time to hone and sharpen your technique. Plus, you get face time every week to get feedback and suggestions.

    Module 1: The Power of Symbols, Myths and Archetypes

    “When an idea is important, it will find its way into imagery.” — Joseph Campbell

    Your mind is a image processor. Yet, we have never been given a map to explore these assets lying dormant, untapped and unused. To get traction, one first needs to understand the lay of the land.

    Symbols have both a surface meaning and a hidden meaning. Some symbols, such as the archetypes are timeless — appearing across cultures and time. Many are dormant. Yet some have motivational force—strongly influencing your behavior — either positively or negatively.

    You learn how to defining a set of symbols. For example, you will explore the meaning of symbols such as The Magic Kingdom, the Treasure Hunt, and the Heroes Journey, the classic structure inherent in great movies and literature you see in a Harry Potter series, the Arabian Nights, the Lord of the Rings and Star Wars. 

    • The Best Times to Use Imagery. Some times work better than others -- find out what they are.
    • Ten Types of Imagery you can use
    • Accessing Receptive Imagery. How to allow more unconscious content to surface.

    Module 2: How To Construct Compelling Goal Imagery

    If the unconscious doesn't know what you want, it can't help you get there.

    Its long known for years that visualization is a key factor in harnessing resources factors lying untapped with the mind.

    There is nothing wrong with the way classic goal setting is taught in the b-schools. It communicates on paper what the destination is. BUT it: lacks motivational force, and doesn't engage your unconscious in making it happen. 

    But like all tools, one has to know how to use it. For there are different types of goal imagery. Some is receptive--useful in both insight and creativity. Some is is programmed--a category helpful in skill development.

    • Constructing Proper Goal Images. If the unconscious doesn't know what you want, it can't help you get there. 

    Module 3: How to Practice and Perfect Process Imagery

    "Only perfect practice makes perfect." -- Murray Johannsen

    Mental practice is as powerful as physical practice in building skills. Despite its importance, few understand how to use the mind to build skills. This directly results in a tremendous loss of corporate training dollars and a a huge indirect in terms of skills never developed and never perfected. Learn how to use mental imagery to more quickly develop skills and enhance the usefullness of training programs you attend.

    University researchers in this area have long known that high performers in sports use a combination of real and mental practice.  Both produce better results than either used alone. These high performers know what the rest of us don’t -- how to use guided image as a tool of mental practice. STILL, most of us don't know who to use imagery to improve application skills

    To really make it  you need to know about:

    • The Theater of the Mind. This is one powerful visualization method to see what comes next and to get it right.
    • Editing Your Movie. BeThere are a number of techniques 
    • Practicing Dissociated and Associated. Such a simple technique but one that really gets the job done.
    • Shifting From Director to Actor.

    Module 4: Techniques for Constructing Your Vision:

    Image by: Martin Basmajians

    In this session we will explore the nature of symbols in life, myth and the dream. They are actually related. Myths serves on one model for understanding what occurs with the unconscious. These themes are repeated across the generations and are often made into hugely commercially successful moves.

    One of the most import mythic themes is the Heroes Journey. And in almost all of these journeys, there appears an advisor who is wiser, who seems to know what to do when a situation is encountered that causes confusion. You might say that during meditation, you are like a hero, journeying into the the unconscious.

    Now comes the fun part — creating, changing and finessing your imagery on the Heroes Journey.
