NLP & Using the Unconscious

Do you know Saadi, the poet? He was born in 1210, and was one of the greatest Persian poets. He has a poor and difficult childhood and a tumultuous life made of studies, travels, exile in hostile environments, imprisonment and slavery. A life made up of disparate encounters: bandits, intellectuals, common people, who enriched him, thus pushing back the limits of his thoughts. In his book “The garden of fruits”, the poet asks us to devote our leisure ‘to wiping away the dust that tarnishes the mirror of our heart’.

What a wonderful metaphor to describe our struggle again ourselves, in connection with our negligence, our weakness and our humanity. Do you feel concerned by this 800 years old evocation? Are we all concerned? No matter what we think, it is essential, as a therapist, to know our shadow side, and how to implement our skills in order to tame it.

Our speaker Professor Reza Omraie uses “NLP and our unconscious mind” to help people in pain or suffering, according to him, it is our duty as a being, to consider the suffering as a whole, even if it is not physical.

This leads our practices through humanity, where everyone on this earth should feel responsible for peace, the environment and justice.

Do you know the Inner-Team-Focusing®, ITF?

Do you know the Inner-Team-Focusing®, ITF?

Do you consider yourself being on the awareness of the present moment, from here and now, or do you tend to lose yourself in the absence of your own self?

The Inner-Team-Focusing® (ITF) was developed by Jörg Fuhrmann, as a holistic approach, based of contemplative consciousness and, it selectively incorporates the wisdom of the body, with the inner work of trance.

The ITF is based on the philosophy of being more than a simple method. Because, we all know, the experience of genuine connection within the ‘here and now’ and the conscious recognition of your oneself, is the highest potentiality of healing.

IFT considers itself as a ‘philosophy of consciousness, process oriented’, and its purpose is a different hypnotic state ‘deHypnosis’. One of the fundamental ideas of IFT, is based on, what transpersonal psychology has called a ‘consensus trance’: throughout society, we are continually stopped in trance, without a glimpse of realization of this fact.

Further, on the line of Gurjieff or Eckhart Tolle, working on the awareness of the present moment, is the new key of this approach.

Because for us, collective consensus trances, are classified as ‘Normal consciousness’. These trances have been induced by our parents, friends, educators, teachers, and of course, by the media. The only problem is that our modern culture does not offer a conscious recovery or collective DeHypnosis – as the Greeks still had. These continual focalizations and dissociations – both essential for successful hypnosis – are the true creators of our different internal parts of personality (‘states of the self’).

Thus, we work with IFT with induced trances, sides of personality, repressed shadow – in the sense of CG Jung – and sometimes with unhealthy fixations of the ego, that often merged from an imagined or real deficit. This work opens up a whole new framework and space, which gives a deeper inner awareness.

The Keys to Success

The Keys to Success

What is the myth of success? How do you develop your own success or failure myth? With what do you feel more comfortable? It would be useful to see more clearly, in order to know what are the essential elements, that make a successful therapy.

Getting good results or finding solutions, in a relatively short time, is a common goal, that all therapists have. On the other hand, patients also want to see radical changes.

Regardless the factors, success would seem to be the result of a learned recipe, that can be implemented in our sessions. Although there is no magic wand or a miracle protocol, Angela Bachfeld proposes us to have a look, during the World Congress 2017, at what researches reveal about this recipe.

And it is up to us, to be eager to know more, in order to avoid failure. And you, what would you add on your recipe? A pinch of hope, a hint of therapeutic relationship, a little placebo effect?

Join us at Angela Bachfeld’s conference, during the World Congress 2017. She is an experienced teacher, a great coach, a therapist and has been an international consultant, for more than 25 years.

As we are coaches and therapists, we are all eager to finally meet you and being able to share our recipes.

NLP and Hypnosis in our daily lives

NLP and Hypnosis in our daily lives

What are the boundaries of therapy? Is it more prevalent in our daily lives, than it actually seems?

When it comes to hypnosis, Richard Bandler and John Grinder used to ask each other: “What is hypnosis? And what it is not?”. Within this set of questions, one might also ask that question “What is therapy? And What it is not?”.

In “Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme” from Molière, Monsieur Jourdain, used to prose without even realising it. What about you? Are you doing therapy, without even realising it?
Sometimes, you are the first to be surprised when you found out that therapy actually works on you, without knowing what the levers were. A word? Or a simple sentence? Would that be enough to trigger a big change within you? It is important to stay close to your patient, to be there with him and to be his best supporter, but it is sometimes important, to know how to step back from your own practice, in order to capture what actually happens. Playing sorcerer’s apprentices can also be a problematic because words have the power of healing metaphors on others.

Come to know more about yourself, how words can relieve, help and heal people, at the World Congress, on the 8th, 9th and 10th of September 2017, in Paris. It is a must-see event!
