TAE is an innovative way of expression, through speaking, thinking and writing from your ’felt sense’.
We each use our learned language(s) to communicate our everyday living situations within our socio-economic-political contexts; and we also use the same language to express our feelings, emotions, dreams, intuitive senses and personal meanings.
Still, is our learned language proficient enough to sufficiently communicate these many and varied aspects of our lives?
Are you continuously searching for the right words, expressions, and ways to communicate what you really feel or want to say or think?
TAE presents each person with an inimitable opportunity to journey to their Edge of Awareness, and provides the tools and skills to discover and release into the world what you were unable to say, create, or communicate in the past. As Eugene Gendlin says about TAE:
“Only a few people know that thinking is not what we learn. It comes from inside and every human being is a different thing. Every human being is a different life understanding of the world.”
Nada Lou is a Focusing Institute Coordinator, well known throughout the International Focusing community with a double specialty in Thinking at the Edge and Focusing.
In recent years, Nada Lou, has co-presented TAE workshops with Dr.Eugene Gendlin and is in the forefront of spreading this new practice around the world.
Nada Lou invites you to come and discover a new way of talking and thinking, while speaking from you own experience. You will find yourself articulating a whole new language where your creativity intersects with your deep interests around subjects like: private projects, artistic expressions, academic writing, personal development, family interaction, and public speaking and business meetings: and at the same time to move beyond your passion and enthusiasm to practical resolutions and solutions.
Aghia Marina is a small resort on the Island of Aegina, which is one of the Saronic Gulf Islands. Besides Aegina, the main port and town, there is also Perdika and Souvala, small picturesque fishing villages to the South and North of the Island respectively.
Aghia Marina is 15 Kilometres drive from Aegina town, a small peaceful resort , surrounded by pine forests, a relaxing combination of green wooded mountains and sea, with the Temple Aphaea only 1.5 kilometres from the village.
Aphaea is a well-preserved example of Doric architecture. Aphaea is a mermaid goddess, transplanted from Crete, where she was known as Britomartis and inhabited, among other places, the lovely lagoon of Elounda. It is one of the three temples aligned together with the Acropolis and Sunio, which forms a perfect triangle .Six kilometres from Aghia Marina ,there is also the Monastery of Aghios Nectarios the largest church in Greece . Nature lovers will also find plenty of opportunities for walking in the beautiful nature trails surrounding Aghia Marina and visit the wild life reserve at Oros.
