The Wisdom Of Not Knowing
an experiential, playful, and interactive workshop
with Donald Marmara
“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” (Plato)
Enhance your life skills by learning to let go of all theories, knowledge and expectations so you can put yourself in other people’s shoes and perceive what’s happening through the eyes and ears of others.
“Not knowing” is not the same as ignorance.
Whilst knowledge and understanding is of course essential, it can sometimes interfere with our ability to perceive accurately and objectively.
In this workshop we will explore how we can develop – or recover – the ability to set aside our knowledge so we can perceive innocently, through the eyes of a child.
As the Zen Master who said to his student that he can only learn from him when he has “emptied his cup”, we will discover what happens when we are willing to observe without interpreting.
This will reveal our bias and enable us to apply our knowledge more effectively.
