The Two Sides of Suffering: Hidden Keys to Healing Ourselves

September 27, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm UTC+0

Join us for a talk and demonstration by by Carl Buchheit, Ph.D.

Human suffering is largely based on two main unconscious drives….

One is outdated survival patterning, which is a legacy of our creature neurology. The other is the compulsion to compromise our own well-being out of devotion to our ancestors -– causing us to replicate ancestral trauma in an unconscious and pointless effort to ameliorate their suffering.

We can reveal and revise both patterns, both the out-of-date survival patterning (through a format resembling psychotherapy that uses NLP procedures) and our devotional patterning (through the format of a family constellation) so that we have more choice in creating future experience and more joy in life.

Carl will explain and demonstrate how these two hidden aspects of suffering can be revealed and then healed with Transformational NLP. He will invite several volunteers to come on stage and discuss their issues. Then he will help the volunteers reveal the unconscious source of their problem and he will demonstrate the appropriate interventions.

Carl is going to use two different formats of change work with each of the volunteers on stage: (a) an outcome frame/re-imprinting, and (b) a mini-constellation.

With each client, he will first do an abbreviated outcome frame and core-sort (“What stops you?”) and anchor-based re-imprinting.

This will be followed immediately by a mini-constellation (using actual representatives) to explore the SOL structure of the very same UPS (unwanted present state) experience, with appropriate interventions.

We rarely (almost never) have a chance to observe Carl using both Transformational NLP and Holographic Constellations, side-by-side, for the same client experiences. This evening should be fascinating and revelatory!
