Neuro for neurological processing and storage of perceptual data and linguistics for the patterns of communication, including words, sounds, movements and changes in physiology.

Programming for the ways in which individuals combine the two functions above to create meaning for themselves.

The study of neurolinguistics programming seeks to make conscious the unconscious processing of information by human beings through careful observation of how individuals make sense of the raw data of experience. The intent behind NLP is to activate creative response by individuals or organizations to the world in which they exist. If you always do what you have always done, you will usually get what you have always gotten.

Through a series of entertaining exercises in workshop-style settings, participants are encouraged to: expand their perceptual skills; recognize existing patterns of communications both within themselves and with others; interrupt unsuccessful patterns and expand their repertoire of responses.

The rules of the NLP game include the following:


Presuppositions are the tacit assumptions individuals hold concerning the truth about reality . Since the ultimate truth about reality is beyond our comprehension, the best we can do is make guesses about the unknown. Some of the answers are furnished by our cultures; others are made up by the individual as they go along. Most people tend to forget that they are guesses and live as if they were true. These guesses set the range and the limits of what is possible. The NLP model is built on the presuppositions listed below. To test a presupposition, act as if it were true and discover the effect it has. The best way to find out whether something is useful is to use it.
