The Language of the mind

The Language of the Mind

How to run your brain through neuro-linguistic-programming.

The language of your mind determines how you experience your world.

“A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What a man can be, he must be.”

Abraham Maslow

About the Course

Firstly through our nervous system (neuro), we experience life through our five senses – visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olfactory and gustatory. This begins our “mapping” of the world out there.

Then linguistically (linguistic) we further symbolically map the territory by means of our higher cortical functions in the brain which enables us to use symbols and language, resulting in stories, poetry, narrative, music, mathematics etc.

Lastly, the processes (programming) we use to order and sequence our mapping generate strategies for functioning and result in our skills, abilities and habits in how we communicate, work, relate, and ultimately live.

As we represent things to ourselves on the inner screen of consciousness which we call “thinking”, so we signal our bodies. This then puts us in a state – that is,in a mind-body state of consciousness. The Language of the Mind is a practical course on how to run your own brain.

Origins of the course:

Neuro-linguistic-programming emerged as a modelling project of Fritz Perls (gestalt psychology), Virginia Satir (family systems therapies) and later Milton Erickson (trance and hypnosis therapy).
The project started with Richard Bandler, a young college student finding his genius in imitating their language patterns, and John Grinder, a professor in Linguistics modelling the structure of the therapeutic interventions.

The Tools:

The tools used for modelling are based on the premises of Cognitive-Behavior-Psychology (TOTE model). As Bandler and Grinder modelled from different psychological schools, they grounded their modelling in the tools of Cognitive Psychology. They began using the tools of Transformational Grammar from Noam Chomsky who is credited in part with the launching of the Cognitive Revolution in psychology.
