The Formies Approach

The Formies approach is an integrative method for awareness building based on the non-dualistic Far Eastern tradition of wisdom combined with insights from contemporary leadership theories, intercultural management, anthropology, quantum physics, neuro-sciences, psychology and pedagogy.

It helps people to know themselves and gain reliable access to their inner knowledge.

It consists of three main elements:

  1. The Formies are the personification of the main parts of a human being: mind, body, heart, and consciousness.
  2. The L-Loops are a navigation system that guides people through their self-exploration process.
  3. The toolkit with numerous templates for self-exploration facilitates efficient and effective self-exploration.

Here you can download a detailed outline of the Formies approach.
