How Do You Get Good at NLP? Practice!

By Logan Christopher
It’s interesting. NLP is taught the world over. And there are many great trainers, plus many not so great ones. Do you know what makes the difference? Well, there are probably a few different factors, but one of them certainly is PRACTICE.
I’m in the works on a book called How to Practice NLP. This idea of actually practicing the skills in NLP seems to be a missing component in a lot

Engineering the Quality of Experience Through Meta Programs

The Meta Programs Mixing board was created by imagining Meta Programs on a sound mixing board, the kind a sound engineer in a recording studio slides up and down adding more treble or decreasing the treble, adding more bass or lowering the bass, etc. to balance the qualities of sound while recording a song. Instead of balancing qualities of sound I wondered what it would be like to balance qualities of information sorting (Meta Programs)

Your Meta-Journal

By Logan Christopher
This summer at the NLPU Master Practitioner training which I was assisting at, I showed a copy of the 365 Day NLP Calibration and Flexibility Practice Workbook to Robert Dilts.

We focus on state rather than the outcome because it is presupposed that we have all the resources we need. Another way to describe the present state, in comparison to the desired state, is a state of lack or scarcity, something that is keeping us from feeling whole. By connecting with not just the object, material, or achievement

Transforming Your Self

Your identity gives you a sense of stability, which is one of its important characteristics, but it is also fluid and changeable. For example, no matter where you go, there you are. You walk into another room or you fly to another country and you’re still you. When you were born you were, were in a sense, the same you you are today and yet you’re not the same person you were then or when
