Seek first to understand, then be understood, the wisdom of ages expressed in these words and yet how can we do this? How can we explore another person’s world in ways that allow us to understand deeply before we seek to be understood.
Clean Language allows us to do exactly this and so much more. Not only can we understand others more fully, we can also get a richer understanding of ourselves.
And so much (maybe even all) of our understanding is metaphorical, being able to explore our metaphors is profound, significant and transformative.
