This last weekend I had a chance to have a conversation with Penny Tompkins and James Lawley on their upcoming workshop – Symptoms & Systems: A Clean Approach – happening January 11-13, 2019 here in California.

The following is our conversation broken into three segments.

Segment 1 is about how working with symptoms and working with systems is more similar than we might suspect on first blush.

Segment 2 is musings about metaphor and the power they pack.

Segment 3 is our reasons we think learning live, face-to-face, eye-ball to eye-ball is the stickiest way to learn Clean (or any hands on skill).

As well as the video and audio provided on this post … We would like to invite you to join us for a Q&A call via Zoom meeting on October 20, 2018 – Yes, that is this coming Saturday!

If you have a bit of Clean under your belt or have been wondering about working with metaphors with individuals or even groups, join us for this 60 minute ‘Clean Party’ where you can ask us anything about Clean Convergence 2019, the workshops that are on offer, and even any questions you have about Clean Language full stop.

Now … on to the conversation:

Segment 1 – It’s Not Two Things (7.5 minutes)

In this seven and a half minute segment, Penny and James talk about the workshop they are offering in California, January 2019 – Symptoms & Systems: A Clean Approach.

Now don’t worry. It’s not all just dry information about the workshop. It’s really quite a deep conversation about clean language, working in metaphor, and how this kind of thinking and questioning can help you in your work and life. 

So enjoy segment one and then head on down the page for segment 2

Segment 3 – Like a Dog on a Bone  (5.5 minutes)

This short segment is about learning life and why one would want to travel halfway across the world to learn face-to-face, cheek-to-cheek and eyeball-to-eyeball with real live trainers not just in clean language, but in any skill you’re learning.
