The GC work started around 15 years ago, in collaboration with Robert Dilts.
reality is conversationally constructed.
via filters (somatic, cognitive, field).
held by human presence in either a locked (CRASH) or flow (COACH) state.
Primary focus: how to unite the different components of a creative system—intention, performance state, resources, obstacles, and the underlying field—into a differentiated but harmonized state.
Intention: to foster creativity and transformation.
2 complementary branches of GC:
Generative coaching focuses primarily on creative performance in the outer world.
Generative trance work focuses on deeper realities wherein major identity transformation can occur.
Generative Trance is one great tradition for becoming a true anam cara (friend of the soul), and for understanding the deep plasticity of consciousness forms
The new generation of Creative Mind (CM)
Creative Mind emerged partly in response to seismic irruptions in the world demonstrating the unsustainability of ego-dominant realities wherein nature, women, people of color, non-ego inner intelligence, and many "others" are treated violently and inhumanely.
The unfairness and unsustainability of ego-dominant realities call out for new types of story, relationship, and practices.
The CM Coach Certification Course is a response to that call.
CM strives to heal these fractures by opening an integral space that is deeper (levels of consciousness) and wider (many different communities of mind) than ego.
a vertical axis of consciousness creating reality through Spirit, Nature, collective mind, individual mind, and Integral mind
a horizontal axis of "community of mind," with a matrix of many different members (culture, gender, social role, sexuality, etc.)
a living spirit = "pattern that connects"
sustained suffering when human spirit locks down and withdraws from part(s) of the fields.
The CM modules form a mosaic map for sustainable transformation at both individual and collective levels.
CM is not merely a cosmetic rewording of GC work, it's a new generation—many new courses, new techniques, new frameworks.
The Community of Creative Mind (CCM) is an organization and a next-generation* framework.
It offers its own certification program for Creative Coaching.
CM is a new framework for doing Generative Coaching (GC) and Generative Trance (GT) work.
GC and GT certifications will be honored and supported within CCM.
The GT programs such as Trance Camp will always have a special place, informed by the CM framework.
Just as Generative Change was the share framework for GC and GT, CM will be the underlying framework for its various forms—GT, GC, and CM methods.
