NLP in the Wild September 2014: Tate a Tate
Join Judith Lowe and the PPD Learning team on this unique adventure in art and artistry - including a special trip on one of the most wonderful rivers in the world!
We’ll visit both Tate Galleries by boat, and co-create a personal journey and conversation of learning, of symbolic change, movement and flow.
NLP – the ‘pragmatic’ and the ‘aesthetic’
NLP has a long history of discussion and debate on the key issue of the integration of it’s 2 modes – the pragmatic and the aesthetic.
The NLP New Code - ‘Turtles All The Way Down’ seminar from the 80’s by Grinder and DeLozier - and the recent ‘3rd Generation NLP’ approaches byDilts and DeLozier, influenced by the Self-Relations work of Stephen Gilligan, are some of the most fruitful and compelling descriptions of this discussion in our field.
The technical and ‘programming’ aspects of NLP are well known and easy to describe in terms of protocols and procedures.
The aesthetic aspects of our work are sometimes seen as less practical - and yet they are essential, embodied, systemic, artistic and ecological.
This ‘in the wild’ morning will focus on
- exploring art , it’s function in culture and human evolution
- the idea of a gallery
- the idea of ‘taste
- the balance and integration between conscious and unconscious mind
- being touched and transformed by art
- bringing beauty and artistry to our NLP practice
Picasso said ‘All art is theft’
- What can we ‘steal’ (model?) from great painters and sculptors
This ‘NLP in the Wild’ series is designed to get us out of the classroom, exploring together as a group, in ‘field’ mind, with our shared NLP skills and tools.
We’ll discover new worlds, new experiences - to enrich, challenge, direct and expand our NLP Practice.
