Introducing Keynote Speakers:
Vivian Dittmar is a passionate explorer of consciousness and culture since a very young age. Born in Germany, Vivian grew up in Europe, Asia and North America. She founded the non-profit Be the Change Foundation and is a consultant at the Terra Institute. As the author of „The Power of Feelings” and six other books, she has become a sought after expert and keynote speaker on the subject of emotional intelligence. Her latest book – Your Inner GPS – explores the subject of transrational thought.
The Evolution of Feelings
Vivian offers clear distinctions about feelings and explains why they matter. She addresses challenging feelings and how they can evolve from destructive forces to life-affirming powers.
The subject of feelings and emotions has long been a blind spot, be it in philosophy, spirituality or even psychology. However, in the past decades, the rapid advances in neuro-science and AI-research have revealed feelings to be an integral part of human intelligence, inseparable from our cognitive processes.
Vivian Dittmar, renowned expert on emotional intelligence and author of „The Power of Feelings”, presents an evolutionary perspective on the subject. She offers clear distinctions between various phenomena we commonly call feelings and explains why it’s important to discern them. She further highlights the relevance of challenging feelings such as anger, fear or sadness and reveals how these can evolve from destructive forces to positive, life-affirming powers.
Beside her keynote, Vivian is giving a presentation, as well as a workshop during IEC 2020!
WORKSHOP (2,5 hours):
Transrational Thought, Transpersonal Feeling
As consciousness evolves, there is a profound change in the way feelings are experienced and thought is perceived. In this workshop, Vivian Dittmar takes you on an experiential journey into the transrational dimensions of thought and the transpersonal realm of feelings.
She introduces you to effective methods you can use to advance the evolution of your own thinking and feeling processes, while she gives you an opportunity to experience the interplay between transrational thought and transpersonal feelings.
Your Inner GPS – Transrational Thought in Practice
A growing number of people have already begun to navigate their lives using transrational cognitive processes – often without being fully aware of what they are and how they work. Vivian Dittmar has identified four distinctly different disciplines of transrational thought: inspiration, intuition, intention and the heart intelligence.
Together with the fifth discipline of thought, our rational mind, they form our inner GPS. In this presentation, Dittmar maps out the characteristics and inter-play of these five disciplines of thought, providing you with a deepened understanding of each cognitive faculty and offering a clear vocabulary to describe them.
