Paradox might be the ultimate Shifting technique. Paradoxes are brief brain-busters that demonstrate how two logically opposing views can be true at the same time. When integrated skillfully, paradoxes can shift your participants from a habit of mind that relies on understanding a single "objective reality"to one that embraces forms of knowing that exist beyond logic.
Facilitate a mindfulness practice called decentering, and help your participants move beyond identifying and separating their concept of "I, me, and mine", revealing that the Self is a construct driven by ego, whose tendency is to divide and focus on differences. Transcending ego in this way better positions participants for more inclusive ways of relating with others (colleagues, clients, and communities).
