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.
