To unlearn is to learn. More often than not, before people can learn something new, they have to unlearn what they think they already know. In this paper, with the input of focus-groups, the practitioner-author examines various ways of unlearning such as in Zen Buddhism, being detached so as to learn in a good way. Some of the ways to unlearn include developing the un-trapped mind, avoiding groupthink; asking questions and listening to criticisms.
Keywords: Unlearning, emptying, successful teaching, being detached, being creative, avoiding groupthink, questioning.
