Why do our lead trainers with decades of experience conduct an introductory workshop? Because they want to!

As Carl says,

“The NLP we teach here at NLP Marin is so beautiful and so extraordinary, and it has made such a difference in my life across more than three decades. Because so much of the NLP that people encounter out in the world is mechanical and often disrespectful, I completely adore having an opportunity to introduce our guests to the kind of NLP that I love and respect.”

In the course of the three hours, Carl lectures for a few minutes, to present a little bit of NLP history and background, and also a little bit of other information about the amazing, original discoveries that started the whole NLP revolution. But Carl will use most of the morning to demonstrate some NLP change and communication basics, and to invite guests to try them out–in the privacy of their own experience. The Free Workshop format is highly interactive, but also respectfully private. Because of the way NLP works, our guests can share about their experience of the various NLP techniques without having to reveal anything about the content of their lives. Of course, all sharing is welcome. We spend most of the morning laughing, and Carl loves questions.

At the end of the morning, everyone will have completely and delightfully new ways to understand and make sense out of their experience of being human, as well as some specific ideas about why their current relationships and other communication situations unfold the way they do. In addition, everyone will leave with some simple but amazingly powerful ways to directly change (improve!) the feelings that are associated with any experience they encounter in daily life.

NLP Marin offers a distinctly original, unconventional approach to teaching Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), one that has evolved and unfolded over more than twenty years.

Listen to the kinds of changes you can expect from the full course (4 min)

This three-hour workshops provide a “hands-on” experience of NLP. It provides insight into how NLP could be useful in your unique life circumstances. It will provide you with the opportunity to meet our trainer Carl Buchheit, one of the leading NLP trainers. Whether you go on to take one of our courses, or not. Do not miss this opportunity.

Carl on the Magic of Communication (10 min)

In addition to the superior communication tools and skills we offer, what sets NLP Marin apart is our whole-hearted commitment to our students’ learning and growth.

The Free Workshop truly is a workshop. It is not a sales push disguised as a workshop. (We usually have to rein Carl in from doing three months of real class material in the three hours.) However, we do take a few minutes to present some basic information about the format and logistics of our Core Competencies of Communication and Change course. All training questions are welcome and all are answered.
