As a coach and educator, my work is to reveal the wisdom that lies in the spaces we can’t see.
Creative breakthroughs happen when we perceive the wisdom that lies outside of our ordinary ways of looking.
In Gestalt psychology, there is a concept called ‘figure’ and ‘ground.’ Westerners tend to see figure and we have a harder time seeing ground. For example, looking at a fish tank, a Westerner will immediately notice the biggest or prettiest fish, and not the broader environment—sand, seaweed, etc.
What would happen if you shifted your looking?
Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
