ONE DAY PRE CONFERENCE, Thursday Aug. 24
The Magic of Metaphor
Metaphor is the language of the unconscious mind. Harness its power and creativity in this action packed, fast paced workshop. Of course we will explore several strategies for using storytelling in hypnosis and NLP, and even share with you how easy it can be to do in real time. You’ll discover a natural ability that you may not have realized you have. You’ll learn how to elicit powerful and unique personal metaphors from your clients to gain greater understanding and make your work even easier and more effective. Discover how you can create living metaphors and experiences for your clients to take the change out into the world beyond your consulting room. Incorporate one of Dr. Erickson’s greatest talents into your practice. You’ll find out how to use metaphor for even deeper embedding of hidden suggestions. Utilize inner journeying and transformational “rituals” for deep exploration and insight. Use conversational metaphors for greater impact in or out of the office. This is a comprehensive skill-building course for the serious student of contemporary hypnosis or NLP.
