What is NLP?

NLP is a very practical approach to human behavior. Initially created in the 1970's by Richard Bandler and John Grinder, NLP is a methodology for modeling excellence. It's primary focus is on how to operate your own mind and body to create what you want in life.

The discoveries made from the methodology of NLP have led to techniques that are used in business, education, and health, as well as therapy (and we've had participants attend our trainings from all of these various fields). It is often said that NLP has made the greatest contribution to the behavioral sciences in the last 30 years.

Throughout this training you will uncover and work with the processes that precede behavior. You will learn the very fabric of thought and action. And you will learn a set of skills that can be the foundation for all the goals in your life.

Before the development of NLP, we had explanations as to why we act in certain ways. Since NLP, we have the understanding of how we act in those ways.

Become a Certified NLP Practitioner and become your very best!

2020-11-21 at 19:15 Pacific Time

Amazing class and now I understand the Law of Attraction after taking it a second time with this time being live on zoom. I am happy to have gotten confirmation that in dealing with everything I needed to (personally with trauma) that is now why what I desire is coming to me instead of away. Overall knowing how NLP, Release Technique and EFT all works together in Law of Attraction was the biggest take away for me in finally understanding why it works and how to keep it working.
