Four Quadrant Dynamics: An Approach to Mind Exploration

As we ask inward questions with curiosity, we notice how the mind, as a receptivity system, receives information powerfully from key areas: physical, emotional-relational, intentional, and meaningful.

As we ask open-ended questions, we receive ideas — often in quick, visual ‘flashes of insight.’ We call these sensory ‘bits’ or flashes ‘dynamic ideas’ for a variety of reasons.

These prejudices are deep, they are unconscious, and they are habitual.
