What is ‘Beyond Labels and Roles’?


We human beings are fascinating creatures, as we easily identify and validate ourselves relating to all kind of labels, functions, and roles. Yet such validation and identification limits not only our relationships, but also our contributions to the world and experience of life.

We are about so much more than it says on the label. Our intelligence and inner genius cannot be put into a box or tin. Sadly, we are not able to see, perceive, consider and benefit from other possibilities and we begin to think a box. This ‘box’ and ‘label’ states how we should think, act and respond.

The identification with a role or label keeps us stuck in a linear, goal and task driven functional approach, which can cause us to go around in circles of the familiar. We are not able to enact creative and independent thinking when something is not working well or when we need to make the best decision or need to find solutions. But there are infinite possibilities, configurations, permutations, and combinations available to us outside of the box and beyond the label, function and role.


In ‘Beyond Labels and Roles’ we:

We always start from a place of gratitude and sense for joy throughout the experience.  We are grateful that we are able to tune into the collective intelligence and wisdom, and that we explore what wisdom is available beyond labels and roles in this way. Thank you.

Tap into the collective intelligence and wisdom to sense into how we can combine our creative powers and creative thinking to move from linear, goal and task driven functional approaches to meaningful, whole-system, ever-present whole person contributions, potential realization and personal fulfilment.

We do this by enacting our receptive, creative, conceptual and contextual abilities and all our senses, inner and outer, thus our physical 5 senses, our intuition, imagination and extra-sensory abilities.

We are able to

  • Enact and enjoy a Universal Language that does not discriminate based on understanding, environment, development, age, gender, race, culture, status, role, preferences, generation, etc.
  • Enact a variety of sensemaking processes, techniques and practices
  • Be fully present to what emerges, as there is no need to defend, justify, explain, or protect insights and ideas emerging through the process
  • Listen to receive, not to evaluate, understand, or respond
  • Co-create context for whatever information, wisdom and insights emerge through the process
  • Explore and apply this context on an individual and collective level, thus practical application that has personal value, symbolic meaning for humanity, and global impact
  • Weave these insights together in a meaningful way, in the event that we enacted collective sensemaking in a group environment
  • Expand the information by using our creative and conceptual abilities, and are introduced to many creative and embodied thinking techniques and practices
  • Enact, stimulate, nourish and strengthen our receptive, creative, contextual and conceptual abilities, which are all extremely valuable in the 21st Century
  • Take meaningful, relevant, aligned, synchronised, and coherent actions and interactions
  • Track insights and the flow of ideas arising after the experience without losing fluidity, momentum, continuity and follow through
  • Cultivate meaningful relationships and track degrees of connection
  • Respect serendipity and trust synchronicity
  • Elevate any group engagement to another level
  • Transcend human dynamic challenges such as hidden agendas, pre-conceived ideas, rigid mind-sets, limited frames of reference, strong personalities and opinions
  • Fuse different lines of thought, contradictory ideals, opposing forces and ideas, and embrace diversity and versatility in a graceful way
  • Apply sensemaking in any context, situation, environment and industry, whether a personal, group, community, organisational or collective dilemma we need guidance, solutions and wisdom for

Did you know…

In our JOYSense Immersions and Experiences we follow the path of resonance and sense for joy. That way we stay on track and follow the natural flow. Together, we tap into the collective intelligence and wisdom to discover insights and information that can assist us to elevate any group interaction and positively impact the way we relate, engage, co-create, manifest, synthesise, and actualise. Humanity seems not to be able to find solutions for our multitude personal-socio-economic-eco-geopolitical-culture dilemmas, even with easy access to information on the internet and knowledge, millions of academic papers and books published, and the ability to connect and communicate with ease through technology and communication. Furthermore we are not so clever and sophisticated as we think we are, as the way we treat each other, our planet and other creatures and organisms do not reflect that. We thus consult and sense into the collective intelligence and wisdom with reverence and respect to provide us with meaningful, relevant and practical guidance.

Our JOYSense immersions introduce us gracefully to sensemaking processes, techniques and practices that we can enact and apply to tune into and sense into the collective intelligence and wisdom, by using our inborn sensibilities and intelligence, both on a somatic and cognitive level.

Our JOYSense Immersions consist of 3 core elements, namely:

  1. Backdrop, wherein we share the context of the immersion
  2. A gentle transition to prepare us for the sensemaking experience
  3. And the sensemaking experience to tune into and sense into the collective intelligence and wisdom to guide us in terms of our theme

And a Surprise Bonus 15 minute Online JOYSense Session with Hannelie to share your experience and to explore questions and insights together that arose during your experience.
