LIFE Practice Community™

Simply achieving things doesn’t do it. Many long for a meaningful life, work that matters and freedom of mind. But ambitions naturally entrap your mind and it is hard to recognise those consequences in time. When symptoms begin to show, we are often too late.

Wisdom or success?

Do you also experience a painful gap between insights and practice? Between the walk and the talk? Between books and real life? Or the famous timing issue of wisdom: Now I know what I should have done… Indeed, we need practical wisdom.

No big in my small daily life

Do you recognise great transition in the world today? But they don’t seem present in your daily life? Does your daily life make sense? … Indeed, we need practical wisdom.

Empty achievements

What’s beyond power and money? Simply achieving things doesn’t do it. Are your efforts really worth it? Many long for a meaningful life, work that matters and freedom of mind. … Indeed, we need practical wisdom.

No time for big questions

Do you experience the restless longing for time to wonder on big and attractive questions? And how familiar are you with settling with SMART answers instead? Would you like to deepen your thoughts as easy as possible? … Indeed, we need practical wisdom.

This term's theme is

Freedom


Freedom used to be related to obvious enemies like voting right, sickness or poverty. Modern day living makes the quest for freedom more subtle and tricky. In spite of our possibilities, we feel unfree often.  And we loose a sense of freedom easily. How come? What is happening within? What causes our inner captivity? And how can we look at those constraints as sources of personal growth?

So reflect on freedom with us and understand your constraints in order to evolve.
Video from Minke here.

 

 

How does the LIFE Practice Community work?

The LIFE Practice Community works with terms. Every term we work on a specific theme. We reflect upon it in a philosophical way, yet with concrete results in daily life. A term begins with a shared online session. Minke introduces the theme and together we follow a question series that guide our thoughts through it, and help us actually apply the thoughts to your life. So no cliché answers! Only tailor-made solutions based on great thinking. Just powerful thoughts because they fit you.

After the shared session members have access to the question series

Like yoga and the gym: the more you practice, the more you benefit. (Yet this is more inspiring than physical exercise!) You can get individual feedback three times. And a finished question series is marked with a report containing your answers in your inbox. So you can save your brilliance ; ). And: receive bonuses. Every finished question series earns you 1 point. Points bring bonuses like an individual live consultation, pay-it-forward discounts and a masterclass on brain-techniques to create even more impact. Eventually you can receive the certificate ‘reflective practitioner’ authorised by the Bureau for Applied Philosophy based in Amsterdam.

Frequently asked questions

 

► When are the shared sessions?

The sessions will be held on weekdays at 2000 hrs. Central European Time (GMT +2). The day will differ from term to term. All members have access to the recording of the last session, so you never miss it.

► How does a shared session work?

Via online software you can join the Live shared session where we apply our thoughts on a big theme like leadership, courage or power to our daily life. The session take 60 minutes and will be facilitated by Minke Tromp. All member reflect on there on case, while Minke asks series of questions to let the reflection actually make sense.

► How long do we work on a theme?

A term lasts 21 days. It begins with an shared session, but the question series on the theme stays available all term long. That gives you the opportunity to repeat the reflection and deepen your understanding and put the ideas to practice. Examples of themes are leadership, identity and courage or power.

► What if I miss the shared session?

The recording of the shared session of that term will be available online during that term. You can access it on the membersite.

► What report do I get after I’ve done a reflection?

Everytime you do a reflection you receive a personal report via email with your answers. Obviously we won’t share that with other people.

► Can I get feedback on my exercises?

Yes, you can. Every member of the LIFE practice community can ask for feedback three times a year. Minke Tromp will then personally read your answers and provide feedback through email.

► Can I talk to Minke personally?

Yes, you can. Every member receives an invitation to a personal reflection session with Minke after finishing 9 reflections individually. Then you can talk things through over Skype or by phone. You receive an invitation automatically, when you reach that level ; )

► Can I use this for my resumé?

Yes, you can. After doing more then 21 reflections in the period of one year, you receive a ‘reflective practitioner’ certificate authorised by the Bureau voor Toegepaste Filosofie based in Amsterdam.

► HOw DOes the pay-it-forward-principle work?

Once you've done three entire question series, you probably would like to share the experience with a friend. That's why we give you a bonus. We provide you with the opportunity to apply the pay-it-forward-principle by giving someone else a 40% discount on their membership of the LIFE Practice Community. Once you have three done, you will receive an email with the practicalities.
