"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift". Albert Einstein.
This course aims at students who would like to develop their ability to access their intuition, creativity and inspiration while firmly applying one's analytical capacities to their experiences. Key words are multiple intelligences and the place of intuition; self- awareness and development of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual intelligences; effective use of techniques like mindfulness, centering, dialogue and creative thinking; effective intuition in science and business.

Learning outcomes:

After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
- describe own type of intelligence with the use of provided background material;
- describe what intuitive intelligence is and how to use it;
- apply the use of mindfulness and centering techniques and reflect on the experienced effects;
- describe the experience and usefulness of holding a dialogue (deep listening).


This course will be hands-on and in-depth. Be prepared to use your head, heart and hands. Make assignments, try out new things like creative exercises, mindfulness exercises, centering techniques an dialoguing. Read literature, share your experiences and write down personal reflections creatively.
