During the first half of the morning Karen led us through a brief look at human cognition, which she to referred as The Divided Mind. She then moved on to a discussion of the Feeling function—a reasoning process that involves assigning value. Additionally, Karen spoke to some differences between extraverted and introverted Feeling.
The second half of the morning was devoted to creating a Feeling image through a guided activity, and then reflecting on the experience. Participants were then invited to share their experience with the larger group.
Here are some comments from the program evaluations:
- I have a better handle on what the feeling function does and does not entail. Also, I really appreciate getting a higher level view of cognition. Preparatory remarks and the pace of the guided meditation were wonderful. Opened me up to an area of type I feel is difficult to accept – hard to understand!
- The experience of imagery exercise brought in fabulous current material from different authors; useful comments from other members.
- I didn’t like the second part of the program, the image part. Drawing is difficult. My mind was all over the place.
