Do you like maps?

I do. I like the way how they tell what to expect. When finding new places, it feels good to have a map in my bag.

And maps don’t lie, or do they?

The map of our world is weaved by the mind using language, but “the map is not the territory”.

The symbol for the Eiffel tower on a map is not identical with a monumental structure, or with my personal experiencing of a knee wobbling climb and amazing scenery.

Tourist maps don’t tend to represent anyone’s reality.

But we do tend to trust on our internal maps and can easily end up following unchecked and unhelpful map in our model of the world.

That is when a good Personal Nonsense Detector can help!

There are some specific (and common) language structures that if become a thought pattern, can distort our reality and have limiting effects on us. For example, does “I’m always like this”, “I should try harder” or “I know what they think of me” sound familiar?

Tuning your Personal Nonsense Detector to be ready to give a sounding alarm, can help us to challenge our unhelpful inner chatter by using specific responses.

It is a simple way to increase a positive inner chatter and look after our emotional wellbeing and resilience.

This is an experiential workshop where you can fine-tune your “personal nonsense detector” in a light-hearted atmosphere and have an opportunity to gently challenge some of your thought patterns.
