Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a model for exploring and changing the structure of our experience. Neuro- how our brain/neurology functions, Linguistic- verbal and nonverbal communication, and Programming- the programs or patterns of behavior, and how all three of these interact and influence each other.
Its early roots are the careful modeling of the work of Milton Erickson, Fritz Perls, Virginia Satir, and Gregory Bateson by Dr. John Grinder and Richard Bandler at the Univ. California at Santa Cruz in the 1970s. NLP focuses on the relationships between language and behavior and among our internal processing, emotional states, and physiology.
The bottom line is both a way of thinking and many powerful strategies and skills for using your brain more systematically, communicating more effectively with oneself and others, and generating change rapidly and ecologically.
A few of these strategies and skills include increasing sensory acuity to notice subtle changes in oneself and others; asking questions to get at the deeper experience behind verbalizations; and noticing the specific ways we sort and process information, make decisions, form beliefs, and motivate ourselves.
Dr Sundardas is a master practitioner and trainer in NLP and have been using and teaching these strategies for over 15 years.
