First Steps in Thinking at the Edge (TAE)

Gene Gendlin developed TAE in collaboration with Mary Hendricks Gendlin and colleagues, to help people to articulate what they already know, and yet don’t have words to express this inner knowing clearly.
It’s a helpful practice if you are writing an essay or an article, studying, or preparing a talk. It’s useful if you are producing publicity material, and it helps in normal conversation when you want to explain to someone what you think and feel about a topic. It leads into theory-building, so you can say why something is important to you, such as Focusing for instance.
In this short course, we will explore the first 6 or 7 steps of the process. The purpose of the first stage of TAE (Steps 1 – 5) is to facilitate speaking from the felt sense. Then you find examples of when what you are tracking actually happened. This anchors your knowing into real life, based on your experience
