Every mental event (every thought, every memory, every perception) has a structure, a series of elements which--when experienced in a particular order--create your inner reality. Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) identifies those patterns in order to identify how an individual’s psyche is structured and coded, and then alters the structure or code to create change. NLP teaches that you already have all the resources within you that you need to achieve greater wellbeing and success. You were born with the capacity for confidence, adeptness, courage, adaptation, determination, and so on. You've already experienced these states of mind, feeling, and action at one point or another, and so you can re-access them, strengthen them, and make them available when needed to achieve what you set out to accomplish. Dr. Debbie will introduce you to NLP concepts and practices that have dramatic effects when you put them into action: 1. We all have the capacity for high performance, and have demonstrated it in certain areas. For example, let's say that you can sing beautifully, but you can't dance. Using NLP "mapping" strategies, Dr. Debbie will show you how to "map" your capacity for great singing onto your desire for better dancing, and master the dance floor! 2. We all carry some negative baggage that stems from events in our past. Dr. Debbie will show you how to locate the source of the negative emotion, perform a "negative emotion release" (sort of like a mental/emotional reboot!). With the negative emotion gone, you'll have created new clarity and confidence in areas where your past negative experience was hindering you. 3. Your mind can create magical images of your best self, and make them permanent! Learn how to use the "Swish" technique to create a mental image of the person you don't want to be, and superimpose and lock in a new visual image of the person you do want to be. Audience members will experience trance and post-hypnotic suggestion.
