What is Metaphors of Movement?

For thousands of years metaphor has been recognized as a powerful tool for human communication and storytelling. Now Andrew T. Austin of the UK has developed a sophisticated and fundamentally new model for uncovering and engaging the metaphors we already use. These unconscious metaphors for moving through life impact who we are and what we’re able to do (or not do). Learn not only how to uncover your own metaphors, but how to engage them at a physiological and neurological level — a completely new approach to overcoming stuck states and creating effective movement towards our personal goals. The format of this class will be fun and experiential, I’ll introduce each topic, share some examples, demonstrate, with volunteers in front of the group, or with group guided exercises, and then you’ll have a chance to explore and practice each element in smaller groups, followed by group discussion and Q & A.

What You’ll Learn:

In two days we’ll have time to thoroughly experience the structure of the Metaphors of Movement process. We’ll go from “how do I access my metaphor?” through exploring how to gain clarity and insights based on what you find. You’ll have lots of guidance and help as you explore your subjective experience in a new way.

Day 1:

  • How to go from “the content” to “the metaphor.”
  • How to elicit the metaphoric landscape.
  • Discover how to match someone’s metaphor using common idioms. (It’s simpler than you might think, and lots of fun.)
  • Learn how matching with idioms can create deep rapport and insights.

Day 2:

  • Learn to recognize the main categories of metaphors, and what to do with each type.
  • Learn the most common mistakes people make with metaphor work, and what to do instead.
  • Tips for exploring a metaphor to “know where you are” and gain clarity on your direction.
  • Specific guidance on what to do and not do in considering a change.

Most important, you’ll have ample opportunity to explore metaphors for your own life situations. It can be surprising what we can learn from our own inner metaphors. Many “ah-ha’s” emerge as we go through the two days.

Note: In this way of working with metaphor, the content of your situation can remain completely confidential. The insights each of us gain about our life situations can be clear to us, and yet remain “just a metaphor” to others. You’ll see how this works in the group.
