5 Ways Of Using Satori Cards
Take your 9 Reveal cards, shuffle them and hold them word-side facing you.
Without looking at the coloured side of the cards, arrange the 9 words into 3 groups of 3 cards.
The words in each group should resonate, not because they are part of a sequence, but because they express the same intention or point of view.
When you are satisfied with your 3 groups, turn the cards over.
You should find you have 3 groups of the same-coloured cards.
Don’t worry if you don’t get it the first time. It’s not important.
The idea here is to develop your awareness of how words reflect time’s patterns.
- Red cards represent the past perspective
- Green cards represent the present perspective
- Blue cards represent the future perspective
If you did not group them this way, have a look at the cards you didn’t place correctly. Can you now see the patterns?
Game 1 – The straight forward game described in the Basic Game.
Game 2 – Know your limits and resistances. This game is designed to help you overcome your thinking resistances in order to be able to be more at home in the world by designing strategies that work for you around things that you would normally resist (the Connector archetype, also known as Integrated thinkers, do not have a resistance per se, they normally need to investigate how they lead with one perspective over the others when necessary. In this game you take the NO pile of cards from the first sorting you do as described in the Basic Game, and you then select 12 cards which are the 12 words you most resist (DO NOT identify with at all). Use these to learn what thinking perspective you resist and ask yourself where this resistance comes from, what is it about, is it in all things or only certain kinds of activities? Investigate the questions that arise for you when playing this game.
Game 3 – What is your middle ground? These are the cards you selected into your YES pile but did not make it into the final 12 cards you choose as your archetype. These represent your range of comfort zone, your YES being one end and these middle cards the other end of your comfort zone. Your resistance cards are outside your comfort zone, obviously.
Game 4 – Can you think of another one? We are going to be posting these on our new membership site and Instagram soon.
Satori Cards are a very good relationship game and there are several things you can do in a 2 people game. This works best if you have 2 decks. You can look at each other’s hands as you play your own hand in the normal way. You can play a hand about each other (your perceptions and perspective on that person and their perceptions of you). You can play a game where you identify your own resistances (as above) which makes for some very valuable learning when shared with the other person. To do this take your NO pile of cards from the Revealing Your Thinking Style Instructions and select 12 of these that you most resist. Now show them to your partner or co-player. Make sure to play this in a setting when both partners feel safe and be respectful of what comes up for both people.
