Humour Worx : Provocative Change : Workshop : Newcastle 28-30 July

Humor Worx and it all begins in the ‘Bubble of Possibility‘. Provocative Change is all about the structured and unstructured ( spontaneity ) use of irrelevance. Irrelevance has a structure so this should at least be confusing. Here we go!

Get an amazing solution oriented set of key skills to add to your tool box with Humor Worx Provocative Change.

The ‘Bubble Of Possibility’ is a metaphor, and from the outset, The Bubble creates a safe and genuinely challenging space to be prodded, poked and encouraged to explore a problem, a limitation or a thought. This is the safe space where provocative change happens. The Bubble is necessary to set the stage of what can happen. Anything, everything and all that is in between.

Phil has been coming to Newcastle to teach his Humor Worx since 2010. Phil’s work is constantly evolving and is based in solid structures that have a way of creating neuro-plastic change in the brain that is soaked in humor.

As a participant you will be learning patterns and drills ( which are easy to learn ) which culminate in a set of skills, suitably framed, that are a perfect addition to your current skills set.

Provocative Change Patterns

This is Phil’s latest work which is comprising of updated structure of Humour Worx being 20 patterns and an additional day of the advanced stuff which is rarely taught, as they say, the cutting edge. Here are some of the patterns.

  • Voice Technology
  • Don’t worry about that
  • Where there is blame there is a claim
  • Problem justification shuffle
  • Research shows

Over three days you will be internalising some 20 linguistic patterns of Provocative Change in Humor Worx BUT as seasoned practitioners know the linguistic patterns are just a part of the congruent attitude that both verbal and non-verbal excellent change workers demonstrate.

You will be developing your own personal style of expression of the Provocative Change Humor Worx system which on day three will grow into the reality you can create and project.

The three days are centered around genuine Bubble Session where you will experience Phil working 1:1 in 20 minute sessions. Did you know it takes around 20 minutes to create, that is grow and solidify new neural connections?

This is an excellent opportunity to work with and model ( in my opinion ) the best Provocative Change exponent. The workshop is also excellent value.

NLP Hypnotherapy Practice Newcastle : March 31 April 1

Ostara or Easter is a traditional Pagan and Christian festival celebrating renewing as in Spring and resurrection metaphorically and for some quite literally. Meaning and Beliefs are a huge part of the maps we use to navigate life. NLP Hypnotherapy Practice weekend this Easter will explore what can happen when meanings and beliefs change.

It is common practice in change work to explore meanings as a way to improve and change a situation, perception or event. Humans are meaning making organisms and sometimes the meanings we make can be debilitating or can be empowering and freeing.

Equally we all have or apply beliefs to many aspects of life. These can be scientific beliefs that we use when boiling a kettle or the more common general associations we have learned which seem to accurately predict the future.

Like Easter and its cultural significance one persons ‘belief’ may be another persons mythology. The comparative mythologist Joseph Campbell defined 4 functions of a successful and living mythology. We can extend these to our individual beliefs and their associated meanings.

4 Functions of Myth – Joseph Campbell

Pedagogical Function. The application of beliefs ( Myth ) that will assist the believer with and through the various problem stages of life.

Cosmological Function. The beliefs that put the believer in accord with the science of the day.

Sociological Function. How the belief works well to maintain and support the society and culture we live with.

Mystical Function. The aspects of belief that put the practitioner in touch with the divine source of all creation.

Exploring our own enabling and empowering beliefs and their opposites with their associated meanings can help us in recognizing our habits and how to change and improve them.

The weekend will also include practicing core ‘beliefs’ or ‘act as if’ ideas that tend to make NLP & Hypnotherapy work even better. Lots of practice, lots of fun in learning and developing.

This is excellent value at Only £30 for a full weekends CPD, Practice and Development in NLP and Hypnotherapy.
