The Odoki Method can be viewed from a number of perspectives. Unlike many other disciplines it isn’t a linear method, as it aims to meet people where they are. At the same time, it is necessary to have some structure in order to teach the method.
The aim of the Odoki Method is to teach participants how to use tools to investigate their own experience. We can only state in broad terms what outcomes might come from the use of a particular tool - reality will be different for each participant. One relevant tool, here, is openness. Participants will need to be open to what actually happens when they use a tool, rather than focusing on what they believe should be happening, which, according to the Odoki Method, is much less interesting.
Before we talk about the method itself, we need to cover some theory, for example, predictive processing.
