It may be astonishing that in our digital age that provides free access to vast amounts of information, so little can be found about Intuitive Pedagogy on the internet. However, this can be quite understandable when we realize that it is extremely difficult to describe these kinds of exercises and learning processes. Although many of the games, exercises, and disciplines practiced in Intuitive Pedagogy can be found in other trainings, if we take a closer look, we will discover that Intuitive Pedagogy is not only about what is done, but even more about how it is done. We can find trust games in team building trainings, blind games in early childhood education, vocal improvisation in healing sessions, communication training in coaching, clapping exercises in the Orff music method, sense training in nature education, and intuitive painting in therapeutic sessions. However, in Intuitive Pedagogy, these disciplines and experiences all appear together in a comprehensive and integrated context that penetrates the deepest meaning of the word “holistic”. We can do a certain exercise or game “correctly”, but if the coherence is missing, it will not have this deeper level of impact that we know results from the experience of Intuitive Pedagogy. In many exercises, it is precisely this coherence that appears after practicing zealously. And, as always, it is accompanied by this hard-to-describe experience of ‘flow’.
In the last few decades, there have been many attempts to write manuals on Intuitive Pedagogy. Up until now, most of them were so poor and unsatisfying that no one even considered publishing them. Those of us working deeply with Intuitive Pedagogy remain hopeful that modern media will soon allow us to find an interactive form of video instruction, combined with written information and drawings, that will bring us nearer to a satisfying solution for sharing this information in a complete and representative way. It can also be reassuring that in this time of unlimited access to all kinds of information, we still truly need the real life encounter with other people in order to delve into this way of being and learning.
Another reason that very little appears on the internet when one searches for Intuitive Pedagogy, is this: there has never been an official organization, no business, no trademark, no certificates, not even a building, that has managed or administrated Intuitive Pedagogy. And so, we can accurately describe this work as more of a decentralized movement than an organization. All trainings, seminars, and workshops are organized by the participants themselves. This lack of an outer structure has turned out to be the best protection for the freedom of learning and teaching which is so significantly crucial if we are to practice authentic Intuitive Pedagogy.
