Introduction

Introduction: Each module has a specific direction we put our attention towards. Going from one module to the next represents a shift in where we direct our attention. In the first module, we focus inwards, we look at our own behavior, thoughts, feelings and mental models in an introspective manner. In the second module, we direct our attention outwards, towards other people, sensing the relational field and what is happening between people, you in relation to others. In the third module, we direct our attention towards what is happening around us, at the society and systems in which we are a part of.

Introspection

The term "introspection", means "looking within". Introspection is the examination of and attention to your own ideas, thoughts, and feelings. We all have the ability to be aware of ourselves, our; activities, bodies and mental life. Introspection involves some kind of observation inwards, attention directed inwards, an observation of our own mental life, activities, and bodies (Gertler 2017). In the first module, we will direct our attention inwards through introspection and observation of own behavior. All the learning-goals of module 1 are directed towards you influencing or learning something about yourself. Either a new skill, change of habit or mindset. You are naturally then the focus of your attention.
