What are MindTime Cards?
MindTime Cards are a beautiful expression of the golden thought: everyone has value to bring. They can be used alone, with another person, or in a group.
They reveal the forces behind many of our individual differences as people, our patterns of thought. With MindTime Cards you can explore how those patterns of thought behind each person’s thinking affect their motivations and how they behave. With this understanding, we can communicate better and connect more deeply with the people around us.
Our thinking patterns are responsible for our ‘style’ or way of being in life. They tell us:
- what we think is important
- how we relate to others
- how we communicate
- what we need to feel safe and secure
- how we organise our lives (or don’t)
- and many other aspects of what we know to be ourselves and how we are in the world.
