Zoom Workshop Weekend

About The Event


The Percept Orientation, developed by John and Joyce Weir, is a way of thinking and speaking that helps me understand “reality” as my projections onto others, circumstances, and conditions. In other words, I realize that my actions and reactions are driven by projections, and that this orientation can help me live a more satisfying, trustworthy life by moving through the world, as John and Joyce would say, with “no praise” and “no blame.”

During this Weekend Lab you will: 

· Learn and practice the Percept Language in a virtual community.

· Develop greater accountability for your behavior by recognizing and claiming your projections onto others.

· Recognize projections onto you by others to engage in relationships with increased empathy towards yourself and others.

Changing your inner understanding of external situations means shifting your personal worldview.  And the best framework to experiment, practice, and learn this new, “foreign” language is an immersion experience. Therefore, you will be speaking the Percept Language during this Lab.   The lab context allows for observing the impact of this important shift both within yourself and in relationship with others.

If you are new to Percept and are curious, or if you are experienced and want a community to practice and play, this is for you! Please join us in this continuing experiment to explore how you might enhance your personal development and relationships by adding Percept Language to your own, personal toolbox.
