Much of the glue that binds us together, and of the explosives that blow us apart from each other, operate at an implicit level. In principle, language should make it easier to navigate this. However, words accrue different meanings for different people. Take, for instance, a simple word like “listen”. This 30-send video shows how “listen” can have a bad connotation, or a good one.
Relational mindfulness, rather than logic alone, allows us to sense into the implicit, and make sense of it.
On this site, we explore the Relational Implicit:
– at the individual level (see: The felt sense: Embodied relational mindfulness)
– and at a social level (see: Shared Implicit and Collective Implicit).
