The wisdom of our bodies – there’s knowledge in the muscle

Ηave you ever danced your worries away?

Have you ever intuitively sensed that certain kinds of movements, breathing patterns and body rhythms have helped to change your mood and your perspective?

Movement is so simple and straightforward, isn’t it? Our human bodies are built to run and jump and gesture and touch and hold. And of course movement regulates our overall physiology and wellbeing; everything from circulation to digestion to metabolism to immunity. And movement also helps us to integrate our new ideas and new experiences, and primes our most creative thinking. It’s the genius pattern.

NLP and movement – shall we dance?
Physicality, movement and expressive dance have not always played much of a major role in NLP! Although we have a keen focus on observing, calibrating and producing many types of non-verbal communication, there’s also the meta model and a lot of language patterns to learn. There are quite a lot of NLP techniques to practise too.
And of course there’s the life-changing ‘mind shift’ that happens when we take on board the core NLP presuppositions. Really? A ‘positive intention’? The meaning of my communication is what now? How come there are different maps of the world? What even is a map?! So sometimes we can get all up in our heads, trying to follow the process, and then perhaps we’re not so attuned to what’s going on in the rest of the system where we live and breathe in the present moment.
However it turns out that we really do have bodies too, as well as minds. And that our bodies have quite a lot to say. For both of us, movement, dance and connection to the body as a source of joy and intelligence have always been core to our lives and to our NLP practice. In this second article for Rapport magazine we want to share some of our own inspirations and practices around body awareness, movement and touch. And we invite you to join us in some explorations into how this approach to working with and through the body might help you develop some meaningful distinctions and choices. We want to offer you some questions, practices and activities that you can explore for yourselves and that can enhance your core NLP skills as a coach and practitioner.

The life of the body is our real life, the only life we have’ Morris Berman

Maybe being more in touch with our bodies can help us love and heal and honour our bodies more. And yes, we might even one day get to dance like nobody’s watching! Or at least fall back in love with our bodies and ourselves, and each other, and our lives.

The ‘somatic mind’ is the mind within your body

Soma is the Greek word for body. When we are in touch with our bodies and aware of our physical aliveness we have more access to what is called our ‘somatic mind’. This experience of being more in touch and attuned with our bodies is sometimes described as a kind of mindfulness of the body, mindfulness of breathing and mindfulness of movement. Being in touch with our bodies like this is also a kind of foundational intelligence for us. It’s our mammal mind. We are alive and present in the here and now. Here we are. We inhabit our bodies. We are anchored in this present moment. There’s a natural liveliness and vitality to all our thoughts and actions. We have this subjective ‘felt sense’ of our body that is like a purely physical awareness of our whole ongoing life process. We can pay attention to our inner sensations and we can learn how to invite these other parts of our nervous system to reveal their information in ways that we can hear.

We actually even have a physical heart-mind and a bellymind, both of which contain neurons and have complex intrinsic nervous systems that operate independently from the headmind. We know our hearts can take us along a life path, and our gut feelings often help us to make our best decisions. So rather than seeking solutions to our problems purely from the cognitive mind maybe we can connect with, work with, and truly speak from that subtle, underlying felt sense of life, held within our greater nervous system.

The body as a representational system somatic intelligence

In NLP we work with the idea that human beings have five basic senses and that information and experience is somehow processed and managed by these sensory systems. We use our senses in complex ways to represent our world and to create our ‘maps’ of situations and relationships, both literally and figuratively. We know we can use our bodies to make models of the world too. We can express movements that are the literal response to a particular situation, or create expressions that are more metaphorical, as through dance and mime. Our bodies unconsciously move and gesture and ‘dance’. Our bodies are processing for us and with us, telling us something, expressing something, and knowing something that we can’t put into words. Our bodies are a great source of intelligence to us. So how can we further awaken our ‘somatic intelligence’?

‘If I could say it I wouldn’t have to dance it.’ Isadora Duncan

Embodied knowledge is sometimes known as tacit knowledge. We sometimes say we know more than we can tell. In NLP this kind of learning is at the very core of our practice – the modelling of expert performance. Our most basic way of learning is through deep and often unconscious imitation of others. This is how we learnt as babies and as small children. We now know we even have specialized nerve cells called mirror neurons that do this job for us and

Movement helps us to integrate our new ideas and new experiences, and primes our most creative thinking

activate our motor systems when we deeply connect to what another person is doing. In NLP we learn to engage this process in building and maintaining rapport with someone through deliberate, subtle, matching and mirroring of their out-of-conscious-awareness expressions of posture, gestures, facial expressions and key tonalities and words. We get into their rhythm and join them in their dance. It brings information into our bodies, another world, news of difference. 

We need to dance it to know it.

Then you’re a mile away and you’ve got their shoes Judith DeLozier learns about a culture through movement first.

How do people in this culture move through the world? How do they hold themselves? Is there a special rhythm to the way they walk? How loose or how tight is the stride? How open or constrained is the torso? How is the head balancing on the body? How deep or shallow is the breathing? How are the arms and hands coordinating? Then she starts to sense where people systematically place their attention in this culture. What seems to draw the gaze, the turn of the head, the focus of the eyes? In other words, what’s important? What are people filtering for? What is visible to them? What’s going on in their world? Her intention is to allow her body to fall into sync with the people around her, to use her body to absorb information in a natural way, without evaluation and judgment. She’s building tacit knowledge and understanding, empathy even. She’s entering a reality that’s patterned and organised differently to hers and bringing it into herself, into her own body. You may have done an activity like this early in your NLP training – 

Walking in someone else’s shoes. It’s an everyday expression that means we want to understand someone else’s experience, see things through their eyes, feel something of what’s happening for them, their perspective, and what a situation or issue means to them. Here we take it literally. Don’t judge someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes. Literally go for a walk.

Acting, smiling at babies and looking at the moon

Many actors work like this too. Part of their process is to inhabit the movement of the character and find the essential postures, rhythms and stride. They allow the feeling and the nuances of their performance and the inner life of the person to be expressed and emerge naturally from the way the body is held and moves. You could even say they are talking the walk. The way someone moves is like their signature, unique and personal. Sophisticated movement-analysis software is

currently being developed as a way to identify potential criminal suspects. Frame-by-frame analysis of exceptional sportspeople allows us to see something of the magic of their mastery and artistry. Watching Simone Biles in her World Championship and Olympic title routines in slo-mo is an example of the wondrous beauty of the human body in motion and of her artistic control and supreme somatic intelligence. News of difference teaches us about ourselves. We get to learn more about our own personal habitual movements and filters on the world. We find out something about human possibility. The other person is quicker, more focused than us. They have a kind of staccato pace, and maybe we are more languorous and easy. This is a difference that makes a difference.

Maybe they notice motorbikes and we don’t. They don’t smile at babies and we do. And then I’m looking around for the restaurant and you’re looking at the beautiful moon. So what’s somatic syntax?

There is a relationship between the deep structure of our experience and the surface structure of our movement. This is like the metaphor we use from transformational grammar in the NLP meta model about the relationship between spoken language (surface structure) and experience (deep structure). Language has a structure called syntax. The word ‘syntax’ means to put in order or arrange. In language when the syntax is changed it changes the meaning of the communication. The mat sat on the cat. This is also true of somatic syntax. There is an order and an underlying structure to physical movement, and when that changes you can sense the changes in the meaning of an experience, as well as changes in your emotional state. So somatic syntax is literally ‘body language’. It’s the speech and wisdom of the body, the brain in our body, our own mind– body–spirit, speaking to us, and through us.

A practical experiment – step in, move, play, change, integrate ‘All that is important is this one moment in movement. Make the moment important, vital, and worth living. Do not let it slip away unnoticed and unused.’ Martha Graham

Here’s a practical experiment for you in the form of an activity designed by Judith DeLozier and Robert Dilts (adapted from NLP II: the next generation). This activity is in two parts. In the first part you identify some patterns of movement that are associated with a resourceful internal state. In particular you’re invited to become more aware of the kind of physical patterns that either enhance or diminish the resourcefulness of the state. In the second part you can explore how best to incorporate those patterns that enhance the state into your everyday actions and behaviours.

1. Getting a positive resource state ‘in the muscle’ – experiential activity

What positive, resourceful state would you like more of in your life? Would you like to be more confident? Would you like to be more creative? Would you like to be more centred and grounded? Discover how you can most fully step into that positive resource state. Maybe you’ll have a strong memory of a time you felt like this? Maybe you can strongly imagine what it feels like? As you step into the whole-body, present-moment feeling of this positive state, pay attention to any spontaneous physical movements, that for you are a natural way of expressing and deeply feeling this resource state. Notice your body posture, any movements, any gestures, breathing patterns, etc. Now you can start to play with the ‘somatic syntax’ of this resource state. You can explore the ‘deep structure’ of these physical expressions by changing the ‘surface structure’ of different aspects of them.

  • Can you change the quality of the movement?
  • Can you change the speed and rhythm?
  • Can you change the parts of the body involved?
  • Can you change the sequence and order?
  • Can you change the direction?
  • Which of these changes intensifies and makes more of the resource state?

Which of these changes actually change this state to a different state?

2. Taking this resource state into everyday life – experiential activity

This second part of the experiment helps you transfer the positive resource state from the first exercise into the actions and activities of everyday life. Firstly, choose three everyday actions or behaviours that you do frequently. You could choose walking, or carrying something, or sitting, or cooking. Now create the very best version of the positive resource state you have been exploring in the previous exercise. Begin one of your chosen actions (walking, sitting etc.) and adapt the physical expression of the positive resource state to blend and fit with that activity in a way that is most natural. Check that the way you do this also preserves the full experience and strength of the positive resource state. What difference does this make? What else can you do with these ideas and possibilities?

Healing and releasing a ‘stuck state’

This is just one of many ‘somatic syntax’ activities you can play around with and adapt. If you are already moving in a state that is useful and resourceful you can bring awareness to those movements in a similar way. Also you can experiment with a ‘stuck state’ in this way.

(JDL) ‘I love the way Moshe Feldenkrais thought of a “stuck state”. He went directly to the body and held the question, “What movement is the body trying to complete?” The body is in a “vegetative state”. A state of non-movement. From the point of view of somatic syntax if we begin to bring awareness to the movement we can bring awareness to where the movement stops and also allow for the completion.’

This kind of thinking is now central to many mind–body contemporary approaches to PTSD. Allowing the body to tremble and shake, to move more freely to complete the rigidified moment of shock and freeze, seems to have some healing benefits in releasing the tensions of the ‘held’ experience. In NLP meta-model speak it’s also like a kind of de-nominalisation of the body, getting things moving again in a sympathetic and skillful way.

I could have danced (NLP) all night

Of course there are many NLP models that can be enriched by movement and by physicalising the whole coaching space. The perceptual positions model – in which you occupy the perspectives of yourself, another person (or persons), plus an ‘observer’ position – can be laid out on the floor and the appropriate physiologies can be stepped into for a deeper understanding and effect.

Similarly we often walk our timelines, literally laid out on the floor. We’re able to step on and off, in and through time. We’re able to get to the end and turn and look back at ourselves. We can even offer ourselves gifts and blessings, offering and stepping in, and accepting. There’s something about physically moving in these structured coaching spaces that allows for more of ourselves to get engaged in this deep process of learning and change.

Other familiar NLP models which can be coached like this include the logical level alignment process, the Disney creativity model, and the SCORE model. You can even literally dance the SCORE!

Dance - Score

Stepping in and out of problem and solution spaces, expressively moving limiting beliefs into a space of doubt and then into a space of openness to new beliefs, shifting states along a stepping-stones pathway to resourcefulness – all these learning activities are enhanced by movement and physicality. You can even use your body to choreograph the NLP meta model and to play ‘Guess the NLP meta programme.’ Because there ain’t no party like an NLP party.

Bringing joy into the moment– new coding NLP

So here is Judith DeLozier recalling her thoughts and her personal experimentation as she created, with John Grinder, the Walking edit. It’s one of the new code NLP practices to help people become more congruent, integrated and wise in their approaches to personal growth and evolution. She describes a kind of ‘Aha!’ creative moment when she realises that you can move in a resource state and that movement itself profoundly enriches the experience. Here she brings dance into the NLP classroom.

The walking edit was the first time I remember bringing movement into the process. Meaning that before it was more the static calibration of elements of a state. The edit involved walking in a non-resourceful state and noticing the elements and then walking in a more aligned state and then contrasting and noticing the elements of difference between the two states. The person was then asked to exaggerate some portion of the non-resourceful state…really exaggerate it! Then allow the body to come to a new homeostasis. ‘The use of African dance in the new coding was from my perspective to give the participants a time to move, integrate and actually bring some joy into the moment. It also allowed for the harvesting of ideas generated through doing a set of movements that were not quite usual in our everyday lives. This stretch of the body released many great possibilities that fed the group as a field and brought awareness to the individuals.’

Encountering non-habitual movements like this and bringing them into your own body allows for a kind of somatic ‘re-think’ of how you are organising yourself. Our physical postural habits define deep aspects of our experience.

The way someone moves is like their signature, unique and personal

The skilful touch of a teacher or friend helps to bring awareness, release and integration to the whole way we stand and move

Poise and presence – sitting and standing – the use of the self

We get so used to ourselves that this kind of profound engagement with difference, with ‘not me’, can feel weird and uncomfortable. Our everyday movements just feel right, don’t they? It’s just normal to walk like this and gesture like this. Judith Lowe is an ongoing student of the Alexander Technique. She makes it sound exciting by saying that after thirty-plus years of lessons she nearly knows how to get in and out of a chair. This is because Alexander lessons focus on very simple everyday movements like sitting and standing and taking a step forwards. The goal is to be able to direct more consciously your own psychophysical activity, and to be in a position to choose the way you function in your moment-to-moment, living, breathing mind–body. This is in contrast with letting our habits just unconsciously run us, outside our awareness. It’s another mindful, conscious approach to being with ourselves in new ways and tracking in detail the overall state of our being. Robert Dilts in his leadership work talks about the high-value performance states of ‘relaxed readiness’ and ‘focused spaciousness’. Working with the Alexander Technique helps you to calibrate to these types of states. The Alexander Technique is about what’s called ‘the use of the self.’ It’s about training your awareness and applying certain key principles around how you are moving in all the daily activities of your life. It’s founded in ideas about the unity of mind and body, the functioning of sensory perception, and the awakening to the awareness of our choices at every moment. This effects how we respond to our situation – physically and emotionally.

Feedback and learning through touch

There are no exercises, just the guiding hands of your teacher. This feedback of the teacher’s touch is somatic, through the body. You get feedback on your degree of coordination in a moment-to-moment way. You learn about the interferences you are running, your contractions, gripping and tensing. You are made aware of your own habitual patterns and you learn how to inhibit and free yourself from your usual responses. You can inhibit and transform a particular reaction to a given stimulus. Your body is like a map that over time has settled into its own ways, its own survival programmes and stimulus–response patterns. This subtle, somatic way of working relates to the idea of NLP anchors and to ‘stuck states’. Our resources and creativity are sometimes held in a kind of ‘neuro-muscular lock’. This tension feels normal to us as it’s what we know. Our posture reflects our inner state. The skilful touch of a teacher or friend helps to bring awareness, release and integration to the whole way we stand and move. It puts us in touch with our potential, with what might be possible.

Bob Marley
Get up! stand up! stand up for your rights!

The Alexander Technique focuses particularly on the subtle relationships and coordinating movements of the head, neck and shoulders, and spine. It’s always hard to explain what really happens in a lesson, but here’s a simple experiential activity, lightly based on the idea of helping another person to have an experience of this kind of body awareness. Bringing awareness to the neck, shoulders and posture – experiential activity In pairs, both people stand or sit. Begin to tune into your body– move your attention around your body, from your feet to your legs, your belly, your chest, your back, your arms, your neck and shoulders, your face and head, etc. Tune in to your breathing. Make adjustments to the way you are sitting or standing as you notice where you are tense, or where you are asymmetrical, or not as upright and poised as you could be. When both of you are in a more physically aware, awake and present state you can give yourselves these types of guidelines: let my neck be free, my head forward and up, my shoulders can let go and relax, allow my spine to lengthen, my back to broaden and widen, let my weight be evenly balanced – and may I be breathing in a way that supports me to be upright in my length, and in a relaxed way, taking up my space in the world.

Gently move and make any adjustments you want to in order to optimise this way of being in your body. Now one of you gently let your hands rest on your partner’s shoulders from behind them. There’s no pushing or manipulating – just this gentle feedback through touch. You can do this while your partner is thinking of a goal, or thinking of a problem. Another thing you can do is gently take the weight of yourpartner’s arm from the side, as they bend it and relax into your hands. You can do this in a sequence for both arms. Allowing the weight of the arm to be held like this often gives people the feedback they need to be able to let go in their shoulders. Sometimes people find they really have been holding up the world all day! What’s that like? What does it do for you? What does it make more possible? 

The life of the body is our real life It is a miracle to be alive. Our human bodies are a miracle. As Judith DeLozier says, ‘Try living without one!’ So if I were a musician how would I take care of my instrument? If I have a dog or a horse will I feed and nurture them better than myself? Do I get the nourishing meals for others but not myself? Am I truly caring for myself? Looking after, loving and caring for our bodies is about saying a big yes to life. It’s about respecting our lives and taking pleasure in being alive. It’s so amazing we are even here.

See you in May 2019 for the Passion in Action masterclass

We are so looking forward to meeting you in May 2019 at our Masterclass at the NLP International Conference.

Please follow and like us:
Judith DeLozier & Judith Lowe

Passion in Action

We’re delighted and excited to have been invited by Karen Falconer (formerly Moxom) and the NLP International Conference team to present a special masterclass in May 2019 on a theme that is important to us and close to many of the hearts and lives of people in the NLP community.

We’d like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves to Rapport readers, to talk about the history and the current situation in NLP, and how we are so happy that this generation of NLP students and enthusiasts are creating positive social contributions, strengthening the credibility of the field, and innovating new applications and achievements.

We also want to invite you to join us at this unique and inspirational day so we can share key tools and frameworks to support you, your gifts and your goals – for yourself, for your local communities and for our challenging global situation.

The NLP International Conference is already taking a key global leadership role in terms of encouraging delegates to take NLP into their lives and communities to make a difference. The new special Awards evening on the Saturday night of the conference now shines a bright and warming light on some the best of what NLPers are creating in the world. It is a real joy and honour to hear of the work being done and to meet the inspirational ordinary/not ordinary people who are leading the way with bold ideas and real, meaningful results. (Also FYI there’s an amazingly fun party – this year I joined Robert Dilts and many others to dance the night away! JL)

So we are really looking forward to meeting you in May ’19 and spending what we hope will be an inspiring, magical, practical day together, clarifying and advancing multiple projects, large and small, networking, sharing tools and resources, and generally having a great time enriching our perception of just what might be possible.

Judith DeLozier & Judith Lowe
Judith DeLozier & Judith Lowe

Judith and Judith
Judith DeLozier and Judith Lowe have spent many years developing, training and creating contexts for learning and applying NLP. Judith DeLozier is a key co-developer of NLP from the early Santa Cruz days and her many contributions are woven deep into the fabric of the field. Her background in religious studies, anthropology, health and dance, her love of nature and animals, her humour, wisdom and warmth have suffused much of contemporary practice. She is a model of generous leadership, always curious, compassionate and skillful.

For an in-depth interview with Judy see the Rapport profile in issue 43, in which she talks in more detail about somatic syntax and some of her many achievements. Judith Lowe, through PPD Learning in London, and through long-term partnerships with many of the best NLP trainers, has developed masterclasses, study groups, seminars and products, and brings different disciplines together such as Alexander Technique and NLP. She has been instrumental in bringing out potential in many trainers by setting interesting challenges for new seminars, not to mention her amazing ability to model in a casual conversation.

The Passion in Action project is a new seminar arising from one of those interesting challenges.

The big band
JDL: ‘Originally, Judith and I were asked by both the NLP community and the non-NLP community to create a seminar to address social change and social issues that would also be enriching and accessible to everyone who wanted to come. ‘After many conversations over time we thought to create a context where people could come who were working and committed in the area of socially focused projects, who needed support, community, a place to dream new dreams, connection with others like themselves, and a place for healing. This is a part of the community of NLP for which I feel so much pride. ‘We also wanted the programme to be a welcoming access point to key NLP tools and frameworks, for beginners and experts alike, to develop multilevel leadership skills for everyday life, regardless of whether they had a social project in mind. ‘For both of us this seemed like another way for NLP to grow. There are now so many areas of application in NLP. There are strategies for learning, health, both physical and mental, leadership and entrepreneurial areas, creativity, and teams, families and communities. ‘This has added more beautiful goodies to the landscape of NLP, as Judy would say. And the beautiful NLP goodies – meaning the tools, skills, experiences, descriptions and models that we have learned or developed along our NLP journeys – and the many pioneering developments like these have been created, from the beginning, in partnerships and collaborations. ‘I think of Todd Epstein who said that NLP was never written as a solo. It was a least a duet, maybe a trio and some hold with the idea of even a big band. For myself I see that the pattern was that NLP was always a kind of generative collaborative effort, whether it was John and Richard, Frank and John and Richard, Richard and Leslie, Judith and Robert, Judy and Judith, Judy and Robert. The best work from my perspective has come though this co-creative path.’ The ‘big band’ approaches of generative collaboration and co-creative collective intelligence is one of the central themes of Passion in Action.

The growth of NLP – through modelling
The growth of NLP as a discipline has emerged in different ways. Of course the skillful modelling of expert performance is fundamental to the field.

JDL: ‘I always say that people model for different reasons:
1 You enjoy learning about something in particular, model it, and look for a place to apply it. You look around. Who can use the results of the modelling?
2 You look around and see a need, a context or place that is in need of knowledge and you create something that could be useful to that context or group of people. ‘This was the case with Passion in Action. We knew that there were lots of people asking for this space to be created; we knew that corporations from various countries had monies allocated for community projects; and we knew there was a lot of passion out there waiting for an opportunity to express itself. We thought, what a great opportunity. ‘A major tool for us then is through the process of “live” modelling. The success stories, the awakening stories and the stories of contribution serve as the pool for modelling strategies, attitudes and inspiration. What unfolds is people being generative and creating a generative community. This supports partnership and collaboration and creates something concrete, through modelling, that people can bring home to their own communities.’

JL: ‘I remember Judy saying that she had once worked with a group of Native American women in a small rural women’s refuge and that she had invited them to think of their inspirational role models in life. So they had been calling out their role models who were all amazing people of course, like Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King and Our Lady of Guadaloupe, and then she said, “These people are all great role models, but hey, let’s look around the room!“ And it was a moment of great revelation in that group, to see themselves and to see each other as role models – for strength, for caring, for survival, for spirit, for humanity. ‘So “Hey, look around the room!” has been one of our mantras. And, as we say in NLP, “People have all the resources they need.” The issue for most of us is to identify, access, mobilise, enrich and strengthen our resources, to find meaning and direction, to be able to contribute.’ With even basic NLP skills and quite a broad-brush approach to modelling it’s possible to learn deeply from each other and to be profoundly enriched.

The growth of NLP – through application areas and description

JDL: ‘There are now three descriptions. They are called generations but for me they are descriptions, which encompass different areas of human experience. As Robert and I might say, first the cognitive mind, then the somatic and relational minds. Each adding to, enriching and filling in aspects of each other. I think this came about quite a bit by focusing on different areas like beliefs, identity, mission and vision. So the “neurological levels” model (Robert Dilts) was a fabulous way to guide our attention to different spaces for development. ‘The bigger picture is that we are all members of a larger community and like all communities manifest many differences. ‘However, I think we all want to make a difference to something through the tools, techniques and models of NLP. Differences to ourselves as individuals, to our families, businesses and communities.

‘I remember in conversation with John Grinder we would say that a leader needs three levels of congruence: one with the self, one with the vision and one for where the vision will live. In what context? There needs to be congruence with the community where the vision will be realised. For myself, and I think for Judith as well, we realised that bringing together the people with passion and desire, the people with projects and the people with need would create a very rich and generative association.

‘So some of the exploration focuses on areas of belief, identity, mission and vision. We have a metaphor of finding your “true north” like a compass needle

The issue for most of us is to identify, access, mobilise, enrich and strengthen our resources

most appeal to someone in a natural way. It’s a great and simple way of finding direction and alignment. We also have a process called “Gathering the allies” that for some people is quite life changing and full of surprises. And so we’re looking to supply tools from all the “generations” – the cognitive, somatic and relational – to support the creative ideas that can flow from there.’

Touching the world with love and grace
JL: ‘Judy’s dad, then in his nineties, once sent us a good luck message for this project for people to “touch the world with love and grace”. We are also both inspired by this piece by Gregory Bateson in Steps to an ecology of mind: Aldous Huxley used to say that the central problem for humanity is the quest for grace… he explained the word in his own terms… He argued… that the communication and behaviour of animals has a naiveté, a simplicity, which man has lost. Man’s behaviour is corrupted by deceit – even self-deceit, by purpose and by self-consciousness. The problem of grace is fundamentally a problem of integration. And what is to be integrated is the diverse parts of the mind – especially those multiple levels of which one extreme is called consciousnessand the other the unconscious. For the attainment of grace, the reasons of the heart must be integrated with the reasons of the reason. ‘Judith DeLozier and John Grinder’s wonderful, completely unique book Turtles All the Way Down: Prerequisites for Personal Genius is a kind of love song to Gregory Bateson. In it they explore many of Bateson’s ideas as their inspiration for the new NLP patterns they produced in the ‘80s. It’s where the ideas of New Code NLP originate as possible answers to the questions of what types of changes in living systems – and in living communities – possess a kind of wisdom.

‘The premise of the workshops on which Turtles is based is that NLP as a field, as developed in a western, more individualistic and technological society,

has a tendency to drift, in its practice, to the cognitive and to the conscious, and to metaphors of control. Drawing on poetry, dance, music, dreams and amazing activities like crossing over the Golden Gate Bridge in an altered state, key ideas from Bateson about grace, wisdom and change in living systems get explored in practical ways. ‘In Bateson’s piece he is talking about art and culture and how the art of some cultures is too conscious and that of other cultures too unconscious. We’re talking about personal and social changes and asking similar questions. ‘Can our touch have wisdom and grace? Does it heal or harm? Are the reasons of the heart being integrated with the reason of the reason?’

Look around the room!
We met Judith Lowe’s friend from Texas – Neva, a community activist who had been rallying local help for the Hurricane Katrina survivors and who memorably said, ‘You can’t lend a helping hand with one arm tied behind your ass!’ We modelled some of our students from PPD Learning. Glenda was running an amazing after-school music programme for black youth; John was a churchwarden of an 11th century church and was removing the Victorian pews to make the space of worship more wheelchair-accessible and child friendly; Simon had recently completed a sponsored ride to raise money to protect gorilla habitats.

The programme really started to come alive – taking their passion, their heartfelt values and bringing them into the world in some kind of action, making a difference from the heart. For many people this process brings the rich qualities of their values and their vision more deeply into their everyday lives. Your ‘project’ is yourself and your life. The second time we ran a ‘Passion’- type programme in the UK we were joined by a special guest and friend of Judy’s, Rev Patricia Novick, who had marched with Dr. Martin Luther King in the 1960s and who now works as a pastor in a big southside Chicago congregation, near where the Obamas used to live! She was a great source of inspiration to the group, especially as she shared her living mission to continue with Dr. King’s work and vision. It was pretty amazing to be only one person away from one of the great world figures in modern history. At the practical level though she is extremely gifted at getting stuff done – very proactive and persistent. One of the interesting characteristics of her work is what she calls the ‘replicability’

Can our touch have wisdom and grace? Does it heal or harm?

of her projects. She gave as an example a workshop she had created aimed at supporting health and self-care for nurses. This project includes art and prayer, movement, breathing and water. Someone from the group then took this self-care project into a London drama school to help the students manage the ups and downs of an acting career. David and Earl were raising money for an orphanage in Botswana. We drew out the supportive and collaborative way they were working together. We were delighted to be guests of honour, albeit not in our ballgowns, at a blacktie evening the following year, as they raised further funds and celebrated their achievements. John had been commissioned in his role in the corporate world to find a way to recruit and create jobs in his sector for people with certain types of neuroatypical conditions. His project was then picked up by an HR manager in the group and another manager in a global energy company and then replicated in their organisations. Someone else just ‘stole’ a key belief from him about having a go at something even though you don’t know what you’re doing yet, making a start on something outside your current knowledge and learning as you go. For her, that belief was the difference that made a difference! Sara helped an elderly stroke victim recover communication and joie de vivre; Paul organised an eco approach to cycling provision in his borough; Rix brings chi gung into mental health wards for patients and nurses together. Rachel co-authored a children’s book on climate change. A group of women from Poland started their own political party! One evening at a special edition practice group I asked a group of incredible young teachers from an East End primary school to tell us something about their work in a busy, multicultural school from a deprived community. Their belief in what was possible, their certainty about the potential in children to learn and grow, was contagious. Everyone at the group took something wonderful home with them from that session. Over the years we have met and formally live-modelled some amazing people.

May 17 2019 – It’s happening
So we are now in development mode, thinking about how best we can serve the NLP International Conference in May ’19 and the unique, amazing NLP people who will join us on the day. Here are three things we know so far:
• Everyone is super welcome and already full of great ideas and resources.
• Houston, we have the technology.
• It’s time for all of us to step up our practice.

Also we’d love to hear from you. If you have stories, comments, questions, jokes, role models, songs, miracles, arguments, visions, book recommendations, videos, dances, photos of cute animals etc., please send them to us in this dream time to weave into the day next year. What will make the day so special is you. Come as you are, it’s more than enough to get us all started.

COMVET : δημιουργία μεθοδολογίας ειδικά στοχευμένη στους κτηνιάτρους

Tο έργο ” COMVET: Ανάπτυξη δεξιοτήτων επικοινωνίας μεταξύ των κτηνιάτρων” είναι ένα διεθνές πρόγραμμα συνεργασίας που υλοποιείται από την εταιρία: KIKO Educational Solutions από την Πολωνία (συντονιστής του έργου), Synolic Ltd – nlpgreece από την Ελλάδα και Charakis Research & Consulting Ltd. από την Κύπρο.

Το έργο ξεκίνησε τον Οκτώβριο του 2017 και αναμένεται να ολοκληρωθεί τον Σεπτέμβριο του 2019, με κύριος στόχο του τη δημιουργία ενός προγράμματος κατάρτισης με μια μεθοδολογία ειδικά στοχευμένη στους κτηνιάτρους σε θέματα ανάπτυξης δεξιοτήτων διαπροσωπικής επικοινωνίας με τον πελάτη – τον ιδιοκτήτη του ζώου.

Οι αποδέκτες / τελικοί χρήστες των αποτελεσμάτων του προγράμματος είναι επαγγελματίες κτηνίατροι, που είναι μια πολύ εξειδικευμένη ομάδα επαγγελματιών που μετά την ολοκλήρωση των σπουδών τους ασχολούνται με διάφορες ειδικές καταστάσεις στην επαγγελματική τους ζωή. Οι κτηνίατροι αντιμετωπίζουν ολοένα και περισσότερο το πρόβλημα της αλλαγής της στάσης των πελατών τους, των αναγκών τους και της όλο και πιο απαιτητικής και ενίοτε περίεργης προσέγγισης των φροντιστών ζώων.

Ο κύριος στόχος του έργου είναι η δημιουργία ενός προγράμματος κατάρτισης με μια μεθοδολογία ειδικά στοχευμένη στους κτηνιάτρους γιατρούς στο θέμα της διαπροσωπικής επικοινωνίας με τον πελάτη – τον ιδιοκτήτη του ζώου (ασθενούς). Οι στόχοι του έργου θα επιτευχθούν μέσω ποικίλων δραστηριοτήτων του έργου, διεθνούς ανάλυσης, ανταλλαγής τεχνογνωσίας, εμπειρίας και ορθών πρακτικών στον τομέα αποτελεσματικών και καινοτόμων μεθόδων εκπαίδευσης και κατάρτισης και προηγμένης ανάπτυξης δεξιοτήτων επικοινωνίας.

7 + 1 απαραίτητες προετοιμασίες για το 2017

Καθώς ο Νοέμβριος είναι ένας μήνας κοντά στο τέλος του έτους και την αρχή του επόμενου, ήρθε η ώρα να προετοιμαστούμε, με 7 + 1 απαραίτητα σημεία για το 2017.

Δουλειά, οικογένεια, φίλοι & γνωστοί, αλλά και εμείς οι ίδιοι, είναι τέσσερις μεγάλοι τομείς της ζωής μας, όπου σχεδόν πάντα καλούμαστε να παίξουμε και να αναλάβουμε ρόλους. Να νιώθουμε…εντάξει με τον εαυτό μας, να τα πηγαίνουμε καλά με τις σχέσεις (επαγγελματικές, κοινωνικές, προσωπικές) μας και να μην τα κάνουμε χάλια, να είμαστε ταυτόχρονα, καλοί γονείς, να αναθρέψουμε σωστά τα παιδιά μας και να αναγνωριζόμαστε ως σωστοί επαγγελματίες.

Ποια είναι τα μυστικά αυτά που μπορούν να μας βοηθήσουν να τα κάνουμε όλα αυτά καλά; Ποιο είναι το καλά που ορίζει ο καθένας με απόλυτη ακρίβεια για τον εαυτό του;
Πώς μπορούμε να μην κάνουμε τα ίδια λάθη; Πώς γίνεται να κάνουμε κάτι διαφορετικό; Δύσκολες οι ερωτήσεις; αλλά όχι και ακατόρθωτες οι απαντήσεις!

Χωρίζοντας λοιπόν, τους τομείς της ζωής μας, στις τέσσερεις εβδομάδες του Νοεμβρίου, μπορεί κάποιος να κάνει τα πρώτα βήματα προετοιμασίας για το 2017, με εξειδικευμένες εφαρμογές του συστήματος NLP από την ομάδα των ειδικών της nlpgreece®. Κάθε Τετάρτη & Δευτέρα του Νοεμβρίου (από τις 17.30 μέχρι τις 20.30), NLPlabs θα δώσουν ώθηση στην προσωπική αποτελεσματικότητα, στην επαγγελματική υπεροχή & διάκριση, στην καινοτομία της συμβουλευτικής προσέγγισης και στην εκπαίδευση των παιδιών σ ένα κόσμο δυνατοτήτων.

Υπάρχουν στιγμές που η ανθρώπινη συμπεριφορά δημιουργεί ερωτηματικά και προβλήματα. Νοιώθουμε ότι αγωνιζόμαστε, βάζουμε στόχους, παίρνουμε αποφάσεις, διαβάζουμε, παρακολουθούμε και μαθαίνουμε πράγματα στην ιδέα ότι θα μας βοηθήσουν, δοκιμάζουμε να αλλάξουμε, έχοντας την καλύτερη διάθεση και όμως έρχονται στιγμές που συνειδητοποιούμε ότι σταματήσαμε απότομα, μείναμε πίσω, τα μισοτελειώσαμε ή ότι παραιτηθήκαμε από αυτά που ξεκινήσαμε.

Γιατί συμβαίνει όμως αυτό; Τι χρειάζεται να γνωρίζουμε παραπάνω για να μπορούμε να απεμπλακούμε και να ορίσουμε τη ζωή μας και τους στόχους μας όπως πραγματικά θέλουμε και σκεφτόμαστε;

Είμαστε ό τι λέμε και πράττουμε όπως λέμε;

Το λες και το εννοείς όπως πραγματικά το έχεις στο μυαλό σου; Οι λέξεις δημιουργούν τον κόσμο και οι λέξεις είναι ο κόσμος μας για αυτό και η δήλωσή τους σε πολλές περιπτώσεις είναι σχεδόν δεσμευτική για αυτόν που τις εκφωνεί και τις μοιράζεται με τους άλλους. Όμως, αυτό δεν είναι παρά μια απλοϊκή τοποθέτηση για το τι σημαίνει η γλώσσα ως εργαλείο επικοινωνίας. Αν υποθέσουμε ότι ο τρόπος με τον οποίο αποθηκεύουμε και οργανώνουμε τις εμπειρίες μέσα μας στηρίζεται στο τι είδαμε, ακούσαμε, αισθανθήκαμε, τότε οι εμπειρίες μας είναι περιοριστικές ή απεριόριστες όσο και οι λέξεις που χρησιμοποιούμε για να δώσουμε νόημα στα πράγματα.

Φυσικά, οι εμπειρίες μας είναι εκείνες που δίνουν νόημα στις λέξεις και ευτυχώς που οι εμπειρίες είναι τόσο διαφορετικές γιατί αλλιώς η ζωή μας θα ήταν λιγότερο ενδιαφέρουσα. Η σκέψη μας δεν καθορίζεται μόνο από τη γλώσσα μας αλλά κυρίως από το συνονθύλευμα εικόνων, ήχων, και αισθημάτων που βιώνουμε. Επομένως το πώς θα εκφράσουμε κάτι είναι μια αυτόματη διαδικασία του εγκεφάλου μας που δίνει εντολή στους μετωπιαίους λοβούς -μέρος του εγκεφάλου μας- οι οποίοι ελέγχουν τη συνείδηση που έχουμε για τις πράξεις μας, την κρίση μας για ό,τι συμβαίνει στις καθημερινές μας δραστηριότητες, τις συναισθηματικές μας αντιδράσεις, τη γλώσσα που χρησιμοποιούμε, καθώς και τη γνώση του νοήματος των λέξεων που επιλέγουμε.

Σύμφωνα με τον καθηγητή Γλωσσολογίας Γ. Μπαμπινιώτη οι έννοιες και οι σημασίες είναι στοιχεία τής νόησής μας, είναι μέσα στο μυαλό μας. Άρα, πρέπει να κάνουμε έναν σαφή διαχωρισμό ανάμεσα στην εσωτερική και στην εξωτερική πλευρά τής γλωσσικής επικοινωνίας, ανάμεσα στο τι υπάρχει μέσα και έξω από τη γλώσσα. Ο φιλόσοφος Austin υποστηρίζει οτι υπάρχουν περισσότερα πράγματα στη γλώσσα από τη σημασία των λέξεων και των φράσεών της. Ο Austin ήταν πεπεισμένος ότι δεν χρησιμοποιούμε απλά τη γλώσσα για να πούμε πράγματα (να κάνουμε δηλώσεις), αλλά για να κάνουμε πράγματα (να επιτελέσουμε πράξεις). Ήταν αυτή του η άποψη που τελικά τον οδήγησε σε μια θεωρία των λεγομένων προσλεκτικών ή ενδολεκτικών πράξεων (illocutionary acts), μια θεωρία που εξετάζει τι είδους πράγματα κάνουμε όταν μιλάμε, πώς τα κάνουμε και πώς οι πράξεις μας μπορεί να «επιτύχουν» ή να «αποτύχουν» Απαραίτητη προϋπόθεση για την επιτυχία μιας δήλωσης είναι οι συνθήκες κάτω από τις οποίες αυτή λέγεται και φυσικά αν αυτό που δηλώνεται είναι εφικτό να γίνει.

Για παράδειγμα το να θέσει κάποιος ένα στόχο και να τον υλοποιήσει είναι σημαντικό να τον ορίσει σε παροντικό χρόνο, να είναι μετρήσιμος δηλαδή σε τι βαθμό μπορεί να τον ελέγξει κανείς για να επηρεάσει την επίτευξη του, να είναι ρεαλιστικός και να διαπνέεται από ένα ισχυρό κίνητρο. Επομένως το αρχικό ερώτημα που τέθηκε απαντάται με το πώς ορίζουμε κάθε φορά τις λέξεις μέσα μας, τι υπόσταση θέλουμε να τους δώσουμε και που θέλουμε να μας πάνε.

Αν η ζωή ήταν ένα κυνήγι λέξεων το πιο πιθανό θα ήταν να θηρεύουμε απλώς λέξεις χωρίς νόημα και να τις κάνουμε λάφυρα για να τις επιδεικνύουμε. Όμως η ζωή είναι κάτι περισσότερο από αυτό, είναι μια αυτόματη διαδικασία που ορίζεται από τις επιθυμίες μας, τις προθέσεις και τις ενέργειες μας και οι λέξεις είναι το μέσο για να τις επικοινωνήσουμε στους άλλους, πολύ περισσότερο να τις μετουσιώσουμε μέσα μας ως μορφή. Εκείνη τη στιγμή που περιμένουμε απαντήσεις για το εντελές κατά την αριστοτελική έννοια, βιώνοντας τις αδυναμίες μας, τους ανεκπλήρωτους πόθους μας, τις βασανιστικές ανησυχίες μας, τις ατελείς συμπτώσεις των πραγμάτων και τα όνειρα μας, διαλέγουμε τις λέξεις που θα μας πάνε παρακάτω, στην ανακάλυψη των πραγμάτων.

40ο συνέδριο EANLPt στη Βουδαπέστη

Η Δρ. Ε. Βαλασοπούλου θα συμμετέχει σαν εκπρόσωπος της nlpingreece στο 40ο συνέδριο του EANLPt στη Βουδαπέστη στις 07.Νοε.2015.
Το συνέδριο θα ασχοληθεί με το θέμα: «Phobia, Traum , PTSD – the NLPt approach» και ειδική στο χώρο της Ψυχανάλυσης με χρήση του συστήματος NLP από Κροατία, Ρουμανία, Ελλάδα, Γερμανία, Αυστρία, Ελβετία, Πορτογαλία και Ουγγαρία.

H Δρ. Ε. Βαλασσοπούλου εργάζεται σε Ψυχιατρική κλινική (60 κλινών) στο Βέλγιο ενώ παράλληλα είναι και η επικεφαλής της Ψυχιατρικής στις Φυλακές του Liege και θα μιλήσει για: Changing a Psychiatrist through Neurolinguistic Programming.

Σύντομη περιγραφή:
In the classical way of thinking and treating a psychiatrist will treat the patients suffering of phobias, trauma and post traumatic stress disorder by a pharmacological treatment and then he will refer them to a psychologist or he can also choose to begin a psychological treatment by himself , given that he has the appropriate training. In this presentation we will try to discuss first of all the impact in the way of thinking personally and professionally of a psychiatrist in order then to try and analyse how and in which way is it possible for a psychiatrist to change the way of thinking, acting and treating patients with phobia, trauma, post traumatic stress disorder by using neuro-linguistic programming principles, elements and techniques. For the psychiatrist the neuro- linguistic programming ( with his principles and techniques), will enable increased awareness and control of oneself; better appreciation and understanding of the subjective realities of others and their resultant behavior, which in turn enables increased empathy and rapport. It can incrementally improve understanding and effectiveness in virtually all communication situations. By keeping always on mind what outcome we want/need to achieve, by paying attention to what we are getting and by the flexibility of the behavior.

από μια κουβέντα … στο e-one2one

Με αφορμή μια κουβέντα, μας δημιουργήθηκε η ανάγκη να μιλήσουμε μαζί σας και να αναφερθούμε σε εκείνες τις στιγμές που η ανθρώπινη συμπεριφορά δημιουργεί ερωτηματικά και προβληματισμούς.
Υπάρχουν φορές που νοιώθουμε ότι αγωνιζόμαστε, βάζουμε στόχους, παίρνουμε αποφάσεις, διαβάζουμε, παρακολουθούμε, μαθαίνουμε πράγματα στην ιδέα ότι θα μας βοηθήσουν.
Δοκιμάζουμε να αλλάξουμε, έχοντας τις καλύτερες των διαθέσεων και όμως έρχονται στιγμές που συνειδητοποιούμε ότι σταματήσαμε, μένουμε πίσω, μισοτελειώσαμε ή ότι παραιτηθήκαμε από αυτά που ξεκινούμε.
Υπάρχουν διλήμματα και αποφάσεις να λάβουμε, δρόμους να ακολουθήσουμε και εμείς στεκόμαστε στο σταυροδρόμι χωρίς να γνωρίζουμε αν πρέπει να πάμε αριστερά ή δεξιά.
Με ποιους τρόπους το ίδιο το μυαλό που μας οδηγεί, μας κρατά πίσω; Τι πραγματικά είναι αυτό που δημιουργεί «φρένο» και περιορίζει τις δυνατότητες μας; Και τελικά πως μπορείτε αποδυναμώσετε τις αρνητικές σκέψεις, συναισθήματα & περιοριστικές πεποιθήσεις, συνήθειες και πιστεύω που δημιουργούν εσωτερικές συγκρούσεις και λειτουργούν σαν βαρίδια και δεν σας αφήνουν να προχωρήσετε.
Κάπως έτσι λοιπόν απευθύνθηκε σ’ εμάς ένας κύριος από την Κοζάνη και έτσι και εμείς ανταποκριθήκαμε με σειρά από NLP Coaching sessions μέσα από skype. Η μέχρι σήμερα πορεία των ανθρώπων που ήρθαν σε επαφή μαζί μας από μακριά δείχνουν ότι εξ αποστάσεως οι τεχνικές του NLP, σε Consulting/Coaching πρωτόκολλο, φέρουν επίσης θεαματικά αποτελέσματα.

Αυτό το απλό θέλαμε να μοιραστούμε μαζί σας. Ίσως να μην κερδίσατε μια νέα πληροφορία ή κάτι επιστημονικά τεκμηριωμένο, αλλά μάθατε ένα νέο μας.

«Narratives – Meanings – Change»

a non profit scientific NLPt conference

Narratives and metaphors are first the «theories» in human life that give meanings and directions for development. In psychotherapy, we work with our clients on either adapting the narrative or the meaning – or both for lasting development called change. This NLPt conference will focus around that topic with an emphasis both on its philosophy and methodology.

Φτάσαμε στο τέλος του Certification προγράμματος για τους νέους NLP Practitioners που ξεκίνησε τον Μάρτιο 2014. Ακόμη μια ομάδα ατόμων προχώρησε σε βάθος γνώση του συστήματος NLP σε όλα τα πρωτόκολλα εφαρμογής (Business, Personal Development, Coaching/Counseling/Educational & Medical) ενώ παραλληλα δουλευεσε εις βάθος αλλαγές στον τρόπο σκέψης και αντιμετώπισης καταστάσεων στη διαδρομή της ζωής, αποδυναμώνοντας συναισθήματα που ταλαιπωρούν, σκέψεις και πεποιθήσεις που περιορίζουν και επανασχεδιάζοντας τους στόχους!

Έχουμε τις απαντήσεις, αν έχετε τις ερωτήσεις…

Το βραδυ της Δευτέρας 7 Απρ. από τις 20:00, είναι αφιερωμένο στο NLP ή αλλιώς τον Νευρό-Γλωσσικό Προγραμματισμό.

Πολλοί ίσως να ακούνε τη λέξη αυτή χωρίς να γνωρίζουνε τι ακριβώς σημαίνει, τι μας προσφέρει. Η Αλεξάνδρα Ευθυμιάδου της nlpingreece ®, μέλος του European Board of NLP, American Board of NLP, Time Line Therapy ™ Association και ιδρυτικό μέλος του Hellenic Βoard of NLP, προσκλήθηκε στο VIBE LOFT (Σκουζέ 3, πλατεία Αγ. Ειρήνης) στα πλαίσια δραστηριoτήτων με θέμα BRAINMAGIC για να αποκαλύψει γιατί κάποιοι πετυχαίνουν και φέρνουν τα αποτελέσματα που θέλουν και κάποιοι άλλοι ενδεχομένως όχι. Πώς χρησιμοποιώντας το NLP -ένα σύστημα τεχνικών- θα μπορέσουμε να ενεργοποιήσουμε τον κρυμμένο εσωτερικό μας θησαυρό.

Έτσι για όποιον προτημάει ένα ποτό, από τις αίθουσες και τα αμφιθέατρα των πανεπηστημίων, θα έχει τη δυνατότητα να δει, να ακούσει, να ρωτήσει, να συζήτησει και να πάρει όλες τι απαντήσεις στα ερωτήματά του.

Health Club Asana/Ελένη Πετρουλάκη – Ivic & nlpingreece®©

Το τέλος μιας χρονιάς και η αρχή μιας καινούργιας θεωρείται παραδοσιακά μια περίοδος όπου οι άνθρωποι σκέφτονται τι έκαναν, τι πέτυχαν, τι θέλουν να αναθεωρήσουν και πώς να προχωρήσουν.

A.Η αλυσίδα Health Club Asana της Ελένης Πετρουλάκη Ivic, σε συνεργασία με την nlpingreece και έγκριτους επαγγελματίες ξεκινά ένα πρωτοποριακό κύκλο workshops με θέμα

«Κάντε κλικ και ανοίξτε νέο παράθυρο στη ζωή σας!»

Συζητώντας με φίλους και πελάτες , συγκεντρώσαμε θέματα της εποχής που ταλανίζουν όλους μας και σκεφτήκαμε να ξεκινήσουμε ένα κύκλο workshops και να συνεισφέρουμε με τρόπους ευκολότερης διαχείρισης καταστάσεων που μας απασχολούν τόσο στην επαγγελματική όσο και στην προσωπική μας ζωή .
Με μια γρήγορη ματιά γύρω μας, και συγκεκριμένα στον τρόπο που μιλά και αντιδρά ο κόσμος στα μηνύματα της εποχής θα έλεγε κανείς ότι σε μία κρίση μάλλον φτάνει κάποια στιγμή όπου τείνει να σταματά το μυαλό. Παγώνει η σκέψη μη ξέροντας τι άλλο να κάνουμε μπροστά στον καταιγισμό μηνυμάτων καταστροφής, συναισθημάτων απαισιοδοξίας πράγματα τα οποία μάλιστα κατά τους επαγγελματίες σε θέματα υγείας τείνουν να τροφοδοτούν με τοξίνες τον οργανισμό. Χρησιμοποιούν δε τον όρο «τοξικές σκέψεις» και μιλούν για ασθένειες που μπορούν αυτές να προκαλέσουν.

Για τους παραπάνω λόγους και ίσως και για άλλους τόσους που έχετε και εσείς σκεφτεί, σας περιμένουμε κοντά μας:

Β.ΚΥΚΛΟΣ WORKSHOP ΙΑΝΟΥΑΡΙΟΥ – ΜΑΙΟΥ 2012
Υπάρχουν στιγμές που η ανθρώπινη συμπεριφορά δημιουργεί ερωτηματικά και προβλήματα. Νοιώθουμε ότι αγωνιζόμαστε, δοκιμάζουμε να αλλάξουμε , παίρνουμε αποφάσεις έχοντας τις καλύτερες των διαθέσεων και όμως έρχονται στιγμές που συνειδητοποιούμε ότι σταματάμε απότομα, η ότι μισοτελειώνουμε ή ότι παραιτούμαστε από ότι ξεκινάμε η ότι επανερχόμαστε στα ίδια μοτίβα συμπεριφοράς και στις ίδιες συνήθειες.
Γιατί συμβαίνει όμως αυτό; Τι χρειάζεται να γνωρίζουμε παραπάνω για να μπορούμε να απεμπλακούμε από «κρατήματα», σκέψεις, συμπεριφορές και συνήθειες που μας ταλανίζουν, μας φρενάρουν η βάζουν τρικλοποδιά στον τρόπο που θέλουμε να ορίσουμε τη ζωή μας, τα όνειρά μας και τις επιδιώξεις μας?
