What is the power of language? What is personal transformation? What is their connection? Exploring these questions is at the core of this lecture and the workshop.
In German there is a saying: “Reden ist Silber – Schweigen ist Gold.” In English we say: “Talk is cheap”. It is true that most talk is cheap, most talk is about something but achieves nothing. There is a way though, of listening and speaking, which brings new possibility into existence. We will explore together ways of using language that are powerful, making what has been impossible possible, and actually realising action.
The phenomenon of personal transformation gives the possibility of living life as a creation, like a piece of art. It is independent of upbringing, or circumstances; it is more than an extension of the past, it is the result of a future vision.
In the lecture and during the workshop we will investigate the relationship between our language and what we call “reality”. We will also explore the interdependency between the power of language and personal transformation: Is it possible to create ones future as a possibility by honouring oneself as one’s word?
