4:15 Breakout Session
- The Supermemes of Kansas
This participatory breakout session will generate and explore supermemes influencing Kansas. According to Costa, “a supermeme is any belief, thought, or behavior that becomes so pervasive, so stubbornly embedded, that it contaminates or suppresses all other beliefs and behaviors in a society.”
- Deconstructing and reorganizing our thought processes
The Watchman’s Rattle asks us to change the way we think so we can make more progress on the things that matter most. This session will help participants identify the gridlock in their own situations and the beliefs that may be holding them back.
- Building better brains
This breakout will explore what Costa calls “brain fitness” – ways to develop the capacities to utilize not just left brain and right brain thinking, but also insight. How do you help groups tap into their insight? How do you help others with “brain fitness?” This breakout session will explore those questions and more.
