Fertilize your ideas with Thinking at the Edge

Thinking at the Edge online

Thinking at the Edge (TAE) fertilizes your ideas because it helps you ground them in your lived experience. For example:

Is there something that you’d like to do or write about but you lack the confidence to begin? TAE helps you put subtle perceptions into words so that you can write and act from what you know.

Do you long to contribute to the world from the richness of your experience? TAE can help you discover in a new direction in life that follows from of all you have lived.

Maybe you need clarity and next steps about a persistent problem or a complex decision. TAE helps you find the unique gifts that come from the challenges you face.

Thinking at the Edge allows you to Focus about an issue over time.

Your ideas and projects receive the attention and space they need to grow when you Focus on them over the 7-session TAE process.  You will learn how to sense into your own lived experience, bringing life to your ideas in a way that can’t be reached by intellect alone. As a result, your project will become imbued with heart-felt breadth, depth, and commitment. You will be able to talk about it and act on it in a new way. 

“Thinking at the Edge has helped me move from feeling powerless because of the inaction of politicians to address climate change. Now I feel hope and clarity, with clear action steps ahead that feel right for me.” —Merilyn Mayhew, Sydney, Australia

“I am taking up my idea again! TAE has given me the space to enter deeply into my idea, to feel it, say it, write it. Now I can approach my idea in a new way. I’m very happy because I think it will be very different from what I was doing before–very, very different. I like how I am with it now.”
Jorge Jordán, Spain

“Beatrice, you deliver what I had hoped TAE could do for me.”
