           Robbin Shohet Training                                  Supervision - Finite and Infinte 

               Tuesday 2nd July 2019                                           Shekinah Centre, Newchurch in Pendle

Finite and infinite supervision
The title is taken from book called 'Finite and Infinite Games' (Carse J).  The purpose of an finite game is to have an outcome and once that is achieved the game stops. Right and wrong are finite games and the law is based on this.  The purpose of an infinite game on the other hand is to play for the love of it and the aim is to keep the game going. So improvisation in jazz or drama would be examples of infinite games as would children’s play.
To return to a theme of fear and love which I have been teaching for many years , fear is involved in a finite game. The fear of losing something, whether it is the game, a client or a lawsuit.  Love knows itself as infinite and can see life unfolding as it is.  Our life is becoming one which is increasingly transactional and when the other does not fulfil our expectations, we get upset. We calculate to get an outcome and protect ourselves from failing and blame. We are hypnotised into a finite way of being and looking at the world.

Cost is £125 including lunch and refeshments.
