Our reading project continues with the pamphlet The Nature of the Learning Process.
"Human intelligence consists of an ability to respond to each new environmental situation with a new precise response, formulated from the similarities and differences of the present situation to and from past experiences, and to file the new information from the present event in a form usable for evaluating and responding to future events." From The Nature of the Learning Process. By Harvey Jackins.
Reclaiming our complete intelligence is a central issue for every co-counsellor and is certainly achievable with discharge.
The Nature of the Learning Process can be used in at least two significant ways — to remind us of how naturally intelligent we all are and to encourage us to discharge the distress that is in our way of noticing this and acting on it. We also get to remember the brilliance of our students and the nature of how we learn as we plan and teach our RC fundamentals and on-going classes.
Some suggestions for minis/think and listens as we read The Nature of the Learning Process in our groups are:
I encourage you to share your experiences and insights on these lists as you read this pamphlet and discharge on the places where you got hurt as a learner.
What have we learnt that we can add to this pamphlet now?
I look forward to your responses.

Wonderful suggestions! I have used this idea: 3-way minis of 5 minutes each on "Everything I have ever learned," for example, to tie my shoes.

I led a think and listen on the pamphlet The Nature of the Learning Process last night.
There were four of us!!!! (Though I've held a think and listen for the last two pamphlets, no one attended them.)
It was great!!!!
They are very excited about the next one and are eager to invite others to join us.
So, it took a while for us to get the project off the ground but....we're starting to fly!!
