Did you ever hear yourself saying “I think I know that this and this is going to happen” ? ... Have you ever had the sensation of a gut feeling ? ... What did you do with your gut feeling ? ... For how long did you walk with it before you did something ? or did you do nothing? ... What actually is a gut feeling?
We are conscious about our communication on physical level via language and body language, but we are mostly unconscious about our communication on energy level or intuitional level, which is non-physical and non visible. The energy level is the level that provides the information we call gut feeling or intuition.
More or less we still have the idea that the gut feeling or intuition is something vague. Maybe because we can’t touch it and see it. We seem to have a problem with trusting what the gut feeling or intuition is telling us, although we found out often enough that it was true. We need a tool to see the information in order to be able to trust, utilize and benefit from the available resources.

Training beyond Thinking provides the key to the energy level or intuitional level, to make the available information visible and physical. The key is photography and the image carries the message or information. With the key photography we are able to tap into the resources of the unconscious and to utilize the available information in our daily life and work. It opens the universe of knowing which we call intuition.

Frequently asked questions

Why Kenya? What makes it the right location for the training?
Training beyond Thinking takes the participants physically, emotionally and spiritually to a different hemisphere. The training starts in Nairobi and the drive to Samburu National Reserve takes us around Mt. Kenya to the north, crossing the equator from the southern hemisphere to the northern hemisphere. We are staying in the “other hemisphere” for three nights before returning to Nairobi on the last day by crossing the equator again.
Working on the energy/intuition level requires a strong grounding and Samburu is providing that.

Is it a normal safari with photographing and talking about it later or is there something else?
The game drives of the normal safari are the structure of the lessons. Assignments are given for every game drive which need to be completed afterwards in the lodge, followed by a reflection and additional exercises.

Why can’t I just photograph by myself, alone, just for myself?
Photography is the key and the key requires a manual. The participants learn how to use the key and get the manual. By the end of the training the participants will be able to use photography to access the information at any given moment, just by themselves.

What will be changed afterwards? Can I use it at home or does it only work in Kenya?
The participants will be able to access the information of the unconscious (energy/intuitional level) consciously at any given moment anywhere. They will come home not only with the key and manual, but also with the anchor Samburu.

Who else is there?
The group consists of maximum 6 participants, a driver for the 4x4 Landcruiser and myself as trainer.

Can individuals book it and companies? What are the rates if companies book it?
Individuals and companies can book it. The maximum group size will always be 6 people. The rate is the same for all. The experience till now is, that only a select group of people from a company takes part.
