The Foundation Course begins with understanding the principles and ‘components’ that create the best possible environment in which to think.
We then describe and experience live a number of practical, inspiring applications to be used in groups, in meetings and in many professional and personal settings.
This powerful way of being acknowledges that everything we do when we think together follows a structure of some kind, whether implicit or explicit (and mostly implicit). It notices that we often fall into patterns of behaviour in our groups and meetings that don’t create the energy we need for clear thinking and good decisions. It acknowledges the trap of groupthink, and stimulates each individual to tap into their own independent thinking.
Used as taught and experienced on this creative, experiential course, the Thinking Environment creates a stimulating atmosphere for clarity, communication and decision making achieved through a set of clearly stated guidelines based on many everyday aspects of human behaviour.

“I attended Ruth’s Foundation Course in the Thinking Environment. The course was brilliantly run and Ruth expertly balanced the working through of the course material with the essential truth of the Thinking Environment which is to allow people to find their own way and think for themselves. I was able to put elements of what I had learned into practice at work immediately when I got back. Ruth’s grace, humour, skill and integrity created a highly effective learning environment that I would highly recommend to anyone.”
