THE IRIS MAP
The colors can be your companions as you face
the blank canvas of whatever you are setting out to create.
Inhabiting them can enable unexpected, novel ideas
to come into being.
They can also be used as a framework
through which you can read the world around you.
The Iris Map is a method for exploring and navigating your imagination.
It perceives the imagination as a vast 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 …
Opening up the full spectrum of your inner spaces enables you to
expand your imaginative capacity and create mind shifts
to best respond to diverse situations in your life and work.
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 map 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.‘
