Wednesday, March 18th to Thursday, March 19th
*This class is taking place during SXSW 2015 in Austin, TX and right before the start of the music weekend! If you have a room on campus for this class, you are able to stay in your room until Monday morning, March 24th so that you can attend SXSW without needing to purchase a hotel room!
Yes, that means that you will have housing on campus for 3 additional nights after class! “
How to Attract Attention and Influence Mood
[This class is taught by Roy H. Williams]
Matter is made of just three things: Protons, neutrons and electons are its constituent components.
But what are constituent components of thought?
In this class, you will learn about communication at its most elemental level. This makes the sculptor a better sculptor, the painter a better painter, the photographer a better photographer, the writer a better writer, the speaker a better speaker. You will learn how humans transmit thoughts and feelings through simple combinations of the 12 languages of the mind. You will also learn about portals.
Portals help us move from one state of consciousness to another.
Portals deepen interest in paintings, photographs, stories, movies, restaurants and retail stores.
Go to the mall and you’ll see that most of the stores have no entry portal, no doorway. They stand wide open, naked, with nothing hidden or obscured. This makes it easy for you to wander into them, but just as easy to wander out. Stores without doors see a lot of traffic with low curiosity and no commitment.
The 12 Languages of the Mind
supply the components of thought:
1. Shape – angles send a different message than curves.
2. Numbers – a language of relativity. Many or few?
3. Phonemes – sounds represented by letters of the alphabet.
4. Color – often combined with shape and radiance.
5. Proximity – near/far, large/small, left/right, up/down, etc.
6. Music – any sound that isn’t a phoneme.
7. Radiance – energy sent outward or pulled inward.
8. Motion – fast/slow
9. Symbols – messages with secondary meaning.
10. Taste – tongues do it.
11. Feel – skin and muscles do it.
12. Smell – noses do it.
It is these 12 languages that enable our perceptual realities.
Control the signals and you control the perceptions.
Control the perceptions and you control the conclusions.
Control the conclusions and you win the game.
Let us teach you how to use portals and the 12 languages to influence decisions.
Don’t worry, once you’ve seen some examples, you’ll realize this stuff isn’t nearly so complicated as it sounds.
We’ve saved you a room in Engelbrecht House or Spence Manor, the student mansions on the campus of Wizard Academy. You’ll be here 2 days, 3 nights and return home wiser, deeper, dangerous.
“Everything in the universe is connected, of course.
It’s just a matter of using imagination to discover the links,
and language to expand and enliven them.”
