"Processing is an intuitive practice, and the processing pinnacle is an attempt to put logic and structure to something that is not particularly logical." --The Processing Pinnacle Experiential education focuses mainly on the idea that there are two components to experience: the action and reflection. The Processing Pinnacle offers a theoretical approach to more effective processing, the reflective component of experience. Offering different points of view from the growing world of experiential education, the authors consider the difficulties of processing and suggest techniques to remove these roadblocks. Utilizing the metaphor of the mountain, the authors demonstrate how and when certain facilitator methods may elicit immediate response and make a lasting impression on the individual, encouraging reflection as a personal response to life experience. Easy to implement and conversational in tone, The Processing Pinnacle contains valuable guidance for anyone who teaches experientially.
