NLP Marin respects and applauds the entire endeavor that is called “Being Human.” We value an unwavering, continually playful commitment to uncovering and disclosing whatever allows life to be fun and rewarding. All of our courses are intense, rich experiences that combine self-discovery, life- discovery, and pragmatic skills development in equal measure.

We ask a lot of our students…but we give them even more. Because we teach and learn in depth, our classes are highly experiential and completely adventurous. Our students are regularly awed by the power of the tools we teach, experiencing significant change in both behavior and belief over the course of the training.

“Given the choices we are aware of, we each do the best we know how at every given moment. We make the best choice available given our resources, environment, and conditioning. When people have better choices available, they use them. Healing, growth, and success are not a question of getting rid of behaviors, but rather of acquiring more choices.”

— Carl Buchheit

About Study Groups

Includes supervised Weekly Study Groups to practice what is learned on training weekends. Just as with learning any skill set, learning NLP is enhanced with practice, and becomes integrated and naturally available for personal development and professional success. Your training assistants are selected from NLP Marin graduates who have achieved a high level of integration.

(The participants and training assistants establish the Study Group schedule during the first weekend.)
