The Iris Map

a method for opening up the full spectrum of your imagination

The imagination has become a vital resource
for people in all fields — from business to science to politics and beyond.

For thousands of years, artists have been exploiting this resource that has the capacity to bring light
to what is in the shadows and lead us to novel ideas and new realities.

The Iris Map  uses knowledge from the art world to activate and develop the imagination,
in order to enhance life & work and refine performance.

It perceives the imagination as a living architecture comprised of
7 principle spaces symbolized by the colors black  blue  pink  red  green  purple  gold

Each color offers a fluid frame for related thoughts, feelings, knowledge,
ways of thinking, ways of moving, states of being, energies …

Opening up the full spectrum of your inner spaces enables you to expand your imaginative capacity
and create mind shifts in order to best respond to diverse situations in your life and work.

The method is learned through mind, body and practical exercises,
works of art and through ideas from diverse thinkers and leaders.

The Iris Map is like a laser
it has a power of simplification that allows one to grasp, in a fast and simple way,
things that are quite complex.’

The Iris Map has psychological merit
because it goes right to the core of primal human needs, wishes, dreams and capacities
and it offers a method of channeling them for heightened effectiveness.
It takes raw energies and turns them into refined products or results.
If we can accomplish this we are able to exist at a higher, happier level and therefore
achieve greater success in our professional and personal life.

‘The method evokes states of being in all forms — from the most physical to the most spiritual,
a full range of connections between the body and the mind.
The imagination is dynamic, it is not static.
The Iris Map reveals the imagination as a moving force.

Anne Garrigue
French translator of The Iris Map Book & Guide

Exploring and learning the colored spaces of The Iris Map
enabled me to access registers of reflection and imagination that I didn’t know I had.
I discovered new and strengthened existing resources in myself which I then applied very concretely to my work.
The richness of Ann’s background and experience encourages an opening of the mind
which provides us with a holistic understanding of ourselves and of our imagination.’

‘The colors give you direct access to a certain energetic level just through their symbolism.
Something that is ineffable is given expression and so is made available.
I find that extremely powerful.’

‘Paying attention to how inner spaces feel is like watercoloring your world.
And once you start to walk through the architecture of your mind,
it changes the way you experience things.’

‘We have different dimensions inside of us that form a whole, but we don’t normally focus on specific ones.
The Iris Map offers a means of exploring these dimensions as if through many magnifying glasses.’
