Why do you use the TP Shuffle?
This is the first post in the, 'Tell Us Why' series. Tell Us Why, will be a place to share the pros, cons, risks & rewards of particular team building activities, low challenge course elements and high challenge course elements.
So, how do you use the TP Shuffle? What are your main learning objectives for this low challenge course element, and how do you frame this experience?

When I was taking my first challenge course training at Greenbush, Kylie (my trainer) asked us to present a variation on one of the low course elements we had been trained on. I chose to make up a variation for tp shuffle. This was an important exercise in learning to be creative with the tools I have.

What is "centering"? I am becoming painfully aware I am a novice compared to you guys!

Hey Tony! First, I also am quite a novice, and I love it. I'm learning so many new things in so many new places! It is an amazing place to be!

Floyd, thanks for sharing. I can see the 'centering' learning outcome with the TP Shuffle. When you have used it for a deep processing tool, what have been some of the deep topics you've explored after (or during) the TP Shuffle? (I'm really interested in finding out the learning objectives people plan for when programming the TPS.)
I really like the tp shuffle for discussing support. How do we recognize the type of support we need and how do we ask for it even when we can't use words? How do we find out when other people need support and how do we determine how they would like to be supported? On this one we see a lot of groups do the squat and step over method. There are people who need other options to perform this task.
