I've heard Lorimer Moseley speak about learning, mostly in the context of pain science. Much of what he talks about can be applied to self-directed learning in any subject matter.
I recall one of Lorimer's quotes that resonated with me.
Education isn't something that happens to you. Learning requires you to do the learning. Education is the strategy to achieve the goal of fundamental embedded learning.
Applying this in the context of self-directed learning sparked by Tragerology content, or any other information you are consuming, can be overwhelming! Where to begin is often the question. There are so many paths from which to choose!
Lorimer recommends paying attention to your emotions when you are listening, watching, or reading. Notice when you have a strong emotion, whether it is joy, excitement, surprise, anger, frustration, etc. Whatever you feel about the new piece of information, the emotion can be the spark for a learning moment that will lead you to the next resource.
In the May 2023 (May 1st) Tragerology module we will be talking about pedagogy and applying it to self-directed learning. Future modules will address applying these principles to one-on-one work with clients, as well as groups. Once we have experience with our own learning in a conscious way it is easier to apply concepts from the science of teaching and learning with clients.
I'm curious to know what you think about this. How does it feel to read this blog? Does it spark anything for you? Comment below if you wish.

Great post about learning. Education requires a creative approach bent on meeting the learning styles of the student, our clients. Imagery and visuals work for many and others want to put pen to paper after the session.
Great direction to go for Tragerology!!
