Let's practice an NLP Intervention you can use to change feelings, beliefs & even perception! It's called State Changing. It's really simple, but incredibly powerful. Plus you don't need previous experience for this meetup. However, if you've come to the anchoring practice, you'll be able to use it together with submodalites for a much stronger effect!
In NLP we learn that we store our memories and our perceptions using the same representational systems with which we perceive the world: visual, auditory, kinaesthetic, olfactory & gustatory. These are called modalities and they are the building blocks of our own personal "maps" of the world.
But the map is not the territory, and on this session we'll learn how playing with submodalities (specific distinctions within each modality) we can actually change how we feel towards a memory, a thought, or even a belief.
An example of a submodality: we might remember a past memory in images (visual). But are these images in 3D or flat? Color or black and white? Bright, or dim? These would be some of the submodalities of that memory.
In this session we will review submodalities and combine this knowledge with anchoring in order to do one of NLP's most useful interventions: State Changing.
NLP Intervention: State Changing & State Chaining
Imagine being able to take a belief, or a feeling that you don't like, that isn't useful for you or that perhaps you're not so sure about, and change it into something that feels certain, that you love and that you can use everyday.
Once we learn and practice how to do this, we can help others or ourselves to such changes with submodalities and anchoring, in the space of two minutes.
And this is what we'll practice on this meetup session!
The session will last for 90 minutes and will follow this structure:
20:30 Getting our drinks, intros, last session review
20:40 Submodalities & Visual Accesing Cues, briefly explained
20:50 State Changing Intervention explained & demonstrated
22:00 Session wrap-up and end.
As you can see, this session seems a bit heavier on theory review, but it really isn't.
I'll take 10 to explain what are submodalities and how to elicit them. We'll also quickly review a diagram of Visual Accessing Cues.
We'll then jump into the intervention itself. It's a 6 step exercise and the 20 minutes I've set up for it before we all practice it will be used for: demonstrating it, watching and analizing a video of a master practitioner video doing the intervention, and running through the steps for doing it yourselves.
The rest of the time, about 50 minutes, will be used for practice only.
Session Fee & Costs
This is not a free meetup, but the fee is only 3€. This allows me to pay the meetup's trimester costs. The fee also covers the organising and theory review effort on my part…and my drink!
On top of the meetup fee, you will have to buy a drink at the venue in order for us to be there for over one hour.
