Learn & experience the 7Steps
No one does you better than you: begin expanding your range of influence
This 1-day class will inspire you to go beyond the traditional methods of communication in order to achieve new goals when connecting with others.
Each of the steps is gone over in depth, so that at the end of the training, you will be able to recall and use the steps with great ease in your daily life.
From initial explanations to one-on-one exercises, from group role-play to real life scenarios, from accurate and feedback to specific suggestions, this class is designed to help you go immediately beyond your current spectrum of communicative prowess – in business, relationships, and with the world.
The workshop leaves you with a new perspective on how you are currently functioning and communicating with others, and provides you with information that allows you to choose a new approach that works for you. This gives you a different level of flexibility when it comes to achieving a desired outcome. It will change the way you relate to others in all areas of your life, and allow your unique way of being to shine.
Prelude is an introductory piece of music, most commonly an orchestral opening to an act of an opera, the first movement of a suite, or a piece preceding a fugue.
This 1-day workshop provides you with the basis to explore how you can increase your enjoyment and authenticity in relating with ease.
The Prelude class is fulfilling by itself and can currently be attended with Kass or a 7steps Teacher, before or after one of the 2-day 7steps workshops with Kass Thomas: 7steps Explosion and 7steps to Abundance.
During the 7steps Prelude, we get introduced to each of the easy steps of flawless communication and see how to play with them in our daily lives.
Prelude class Outline:
In this 1-day class, after an initial overview of the 7steps to Flawless Communication you will go through each steps in an interactive way.
The first phase is about “connecting” with who you really are and having communion with your body.
- Step 1: Show me the Magic
- Step 2: Listen to your Body
This phase invites the audience to recognize what is special about them that they may take for granted.
This is a perfect warm up exercise that immediately gets people in touch with themselves.
While introducing Step 2 (Listen to your Body) there are a couple of interaction exercises for participants to have some fun with. We walk participants through simple ways to recognize the language of their body and distinguish the different responses their bodies give them, they get to play with some easy examples which opens up a deeper understanding of how the signals from the body connect you to your intuitive awareness and how this can help in flawless communication.
The second phase is about “disconnecting”.
The steps covered in this second phase are:
- Step 3: Barriers Down
- Step 4: Go beyond the veil
This phase encourages people to recognize when they are not being true to themselves. We often go into reaction or put in airs or a mask to deal with difficult people or situations that trigger us. This takes you out of your area of power and gets you off balance. This phase can help you recognize when that is happening to you and when other people are doing that too. So, instead of going into reaction and losing your well balanced center, you can identify the most effective way for you to establish true connection and thereby have more effective communication with yourself and others.
The barriers down exercise, used in the demonstration of Step 3 (see photos attached), is again a group exercise, but something each individual does in their own time as well. As a group, participants discuss what they noticed as their barriers came down and as the barriers of those around them came down. We discuss what goes on in the body as well.
A demonstration of the types of veils and masks we put in to create a separation with others is extremely enlightening and everyone recognizes when, where, how, and why they do that.
The third phase is about “reconnecting”.
- Step 5: Engage the Universe
- Step 6: Expand Your zone
This part comes at a perfect time in the workshop – about half way through – when people are warmed up and ready for a more playful and dynamic interaction.
Step 5: Engage the Universe
To demonstrate this, participants are paired up to do a face to face dynamic exercise with topics familiar to all. Participants are given explicit instructions on how to play different roles and communicate with their partner, using commonly encountered behavioral characteristics.
This is a turning point in the workshop and people are truly surprised to discover exactly how familiar they are with interacting in non communicative ways, and how often they have encountered these behaviors in their lives without acknowledging exactly what was going on. Sometimes we use scenarios specific to the groups orientation, other times we pick random topics and behavior to show the common thread that shows up in very diverse situations.
It becomes quite clear how often others have used such approaches with them and how they have reacted without realizing what was really going on.
In the debriefing part that follows the face-to-face exercise and role play, participants discover what is effective and not so effective in their approach to communication. They get a chance to look at non judgmental ways to use this information to make different choices in their communication style in the future.
Step 6: Expand Your zone
In the Prelude workshop this step is approached as an exercise to relieve stress and anxiety when interacting with others.
After a brief introduction, participants are invited to stand up and learn how to use this step to reduce the stress by inviting more expansion in the areas of their body that perceive anxiety or contraction.
This is quite easy to do once shown and is a very handy rescue kit when dealing with difficult people or situations and feeling angry, anxious or reactionary.
The last phase is about “establishing true connection” and involves
- Step 7: Connect with the Earth
During the 7steps Prelude workshop participants go through Step 6 and directly into Step 7, guiding them through a connecting with earth exercise which finishes the workshop in a way that brings together all of the elements of the class and ends the day in a peaceful and harmonious way. Participants leave the workshop feeling uplifted, fulfilled and expansive, having discovered a connection with self that they many have never dream t possible.
