This course is meant for anyone who wants to learn how to use the Neurographica® method to purposefully re-create their life. The Algorithm#2 allows us to model our reality, try out different situations and test possible scenarios by drawing them. It will help you find clarity, and make decisions that are backed by your inner wisdom, and that you feel good about. This Algorithm will allow you to playfully experiment with situations, see possible outcomes, and observe how you feel about changes in your life before you make them in reality. Also, it will allow you to expand your vision, move beyond the boundaries you have set for yourself, and visualize your life at your full potential. Neurographica® is a mindful art practice that impacts our thoughts and emotions in an active, creative, and insightful way. The insights that you can gain from this practice will help you change your view, understand yourself better, and really improve your life.
Prerequisite for the Course: You have successfully completed the Neurographica® Basics Course with me or another Neurographica® teacher.

Organization of the course:
This course consists of 4 recorded classes of 2,5 hours each (10 hours total). Once I start teaching live courses again, you will also receive access to all future class recordings.
In addition, you will receive access to a Private Facebook Group where you can ask further questions and connect with fellow students.
In order to receive a Certificate of Completion, please contact me (by answering one of my emails). You can request the Certificate at any time, there will be an additional fee of $35, and I will send you an separate invoice for it. You will receive personal feedback on two of your drawings, which need to be submitted together with detailed descriptions (either via email or through the facebook group). The Certificate of Completion will be accepted by the Creativity of Psychology Institute as well as any other Neurographica Instructor. It is the prerequisite to taking advanced courses (Algorithms #2 to 9) as well as professional courses (the Neurographica Specialist or Instructor course). Please contact me with any questions about the certification.
The Neurographica® Algorithm #2 course offers a series of in-depth lessons about the main composition principles in Neurographica®, as well as the complete visual alphabet of Neurographica®. You will learn how to use each element and how to organize a drawing, so that it has the biggest possible effect. This course teaches the Algorithm #2 principles as they were originally created and instructed by the founder of the Psychology of Creativity Institute, Pavel Piskarev (more about Pavel HERE).
Each class includes an introductory lecture as well as guided drawing processes. Students will learn and practice the composition principles step-by-step, and compositions will become more and more complex over the course of the classes.
There is the option to receive a Certificate of Completion from the Institute which will be counted for the Neurographica® Instructor training if you ever decide to take that path. This Certificate alone does NOT however grant you permission to teach and/or use Neurographica® with clients. For this purpose you will need to acquire higher certifications, including the professional "Specialist certification". Please contact me for more information.
