How do we know what to want? Our desires, deepest longings, even our hidden fears, are shaped (and revealed) by unconscious metaphors in our everyday language. Life is a Game. Life is a Problem. Life is an Uphill Struggle. Life is an Adventure. These Operating Metaphors, reveal what the world means to us. They determine our beliefs, values, actions, lifestyles, even our identities.
Edited from a live seminar, this audio seminar presents a complete day of training and transformational experiences of this new metaphoric approach to awareness, change, and personal and professional development. Also included are follow-up interviews with two participants whose lives changed dramatically as a result.
