This interactive presentation introduces the idea of an inner and outer path to personal knowledge and personal awareness.

As we live in the real world we need to increasingly interact with new technologies and pace of life in the contemporary environment.

On the other hand we need to strive to connect to our own inner technology! As such creating a bridge between the inner and outer path is imperative.

Discussing inner ‘know-how’, and introducing ‘Zen’ space and the ‘Emotional Wheel’ to support inner personal awareness (for the inner path).

The Zen is the space for creativity and inner knowledge, whilst the Emotional Wheel is representative of a visual metaphor.

The process helps you to think quickly, reflect and tune into feelings and thoughts and decide what is important to you.

A unique perspective on emotional tacit and cognitive personal knowledge for contemporary times. Ultimately making change and moving forward is all about inner awareness!
