Meta-NLP Practitioner Certification Course Description

Course Description

Certification as a Practitioner of NLP consists of 49 hours of training (Approximately 2 optional hours for practicing the patterns, answering questions and the giving of additional materials will be offered during the evenings.). Satisfactory completion of this training will result in eligibility for certification with the Institute for Neuro-Semantic™ Studies. Each section of study results from a carefully constructed model designed to build one on the other. Comprehension of each subject moves the student to the next level of expertise. Thus, students must attend each class and participate in the exercises. Training will consist of lectures, demonstrations and exercises. Students will perform numerous exercises for both practice and retention. NLP is learned by doing. The following subjects are covered during the 49 hours:

  1. Conscious\Unconscious - The distinction between what is in conscious awareness and what is not will become a part of your conscious awareness. You will also come to appreciate that the unconscious mind is a friend and not a foe. Freud's concept of the unconscious as the Id and innately evil will be repudiated.
  2. Unconscious Sabotaging Frames (Dragons) - The genius of NLP is that it gives the NLP practitioner the tools to direct unconscious sabotaging frames (Unconscious Parts) to the healing power present in everyone. Much time will be spent on these dragons, i.e. those minor personalities within all of us that operate contrary to our total good.
  3. The Visual Squash - The NLP technique called The Visual Squash will be taught during this training. You will receive an advanced version. The Visual Squash allows for the resolving of conflict between parts and for the integrating of conflicting parts. This is an especially powerful and useful technique.
  4. The Six-Step Reframe - The Six-Step Reframe provides the communicator with a formal reframing process that provides ways of stopping unwanted behavior through providing healthier alternatives. This way of reframing allows the preservation of the positive intent of the unwanted behavior. At the same time, new and healthier choices provided other choices for fulfilling the positive intent of the unconscious part. First introduced during the practitioner training, we devote much more time to this model during the Master NLP Practitioner Certification Training.
  1. Language Patterns:
    1. The Meta-Model - NLP basis itself on the language patterns of the Meta-Model. This model is a series of questions, which allows the practitioner to transform low quality descriptions from the other person into high quality explanations. The Meta-Model restores the deletions, distortions and generalization that all speech (surface structure) contains. These surface structure descriptions we use often cause poor communication. The Meta-Model allows the practitioner to get to the real problem in the deep structure (internal representation or image) of the mind. The word "Meta" means above. The Meta-Model utilizes language about language, i.e. which chunks meta to the language in use. Knowledge of the Meta-Model allows the practitioner more flexibility in controlling the communication.
    2. Milton Model - This model came right out of the work of Milton Erickson, M. D. Erickson has the reputation as the world's foremost hypnotherapist. The Milton Model acts as the inverse of the Meta-Model. The Meta-Model goes for specifics. The Milton Model utilizes general, large chunk language and allows the client to search for their own answers. Such language patterns frees the NLP Practitioner to work at the unconscious level. The Meta-Model brings one out of trance. The Milton Model induces trance.
    3. Chunking - Chunking refers to the ability to go from general to specific language or vice versa. The Meta-Model and the Milton Model provide the practitioner the tools necessary for flexibility of language in chunking up to general language or chunking down to specific language. Such skills enhance the practitioner's ability in building rapport and in public speaking.


  2. How to Utilize Your Time-Line to Initiate Change - Based on our recent book, Time-Lining: Patterns for Adventuring in "Time", you will receive introductory training in:
    1. How Your Brain Tells Time 
    2. Through Time and In Time
    3. Eliciting Time Lines
    4. Developmental Periods 
    5. Steps Into Time-Lining

    Using Time-Lining In Eliminating  Negative Emotions

  3. The Drop Down Through Technique - Bob Bodenhamer says, "This is the single most effective pattern for bringing about quick and permanent changes in healing old hurts that I have ever used." This pattern utilizes the metaphor of dropping-down through to uncover the unconscious mental thought-frames that drive our unresourceful states.  Once these thought-frames of mind are uncovered, the pattern utilizes the higher resource frames that are equally revealed to bring about quick and effective change.

A Model of Communication about human processing that empowers us to "run our own brain." Using the "languages" of mind (our internal cinema of sights, sounds, and sensations) along with language, we "think" and frame things using these see, hear, and feel dimensions. As were present data to ourselves on the inner screen of consciousness, that internal movie signals our bodies to go into a state¾a mind-body or neuro-linguistic state and that governs the quality of our life and experiences. Developed by a linguistic and computer student about human excellence and genius, NLP provides insights and specific step-by-step techniques for running your own brain, managing your own states, communicating more effectively and elegantly with yourself and others, and replicating human expertise.


A Model of Reflexive Consciousness that extends the NLP Model, taking it to the next level. It details precisely how we reflect back on our thoughts and feelings to create higher levels of thoughts-and-feelings and layers of consciousness. In so using our thoughts-and-feelings thoughts-about-our-thoughts, feelings-about-feelings, we create mind-body states-about-states or Meta-States. Primary States involve primary emotions like fear, anger, joy, relaxed, tense, pleasure, pain, etc. and thoughts directed outward. Meta-States involve a layering of higher level concepts to involve structures like fear of fear, anger at fear, shame about being embarrassed, joy of learning, esteem of self, etc. Meta-States describe the higher frames-of-references that we set and use that create more stable structures (beliefs, values, understandings, etc.)


While it sounds like a big word, it refers to a simple fact. Namely that we create meanings in our minds (semantics) and we get those meanings incorporated into our bodies (neurology). That why, when things mean something to us¾ we feel it in our bodies. The meanings show up in what we call "emotions." The meanings take the form of values, ideas, beliefs, understandings, paradigms, mental models, frames, etc.

Neuro-Semantics provides a model of how we humans make meaning as we evaluate experiences, events, words, etc. It's a model of how we then live in the world of Meaning that we construct or inherit. Neuro-Semantics describes the frames of reference we use as we move through life and the frames of meaning that we construct. It creates the Matrix of Frames in which we live and from which we operate.

Neuro-Semantics arose from the Meta-States model which provides a way to think about the levels of states or mind that we experience all the time. That's because we never just think. As soon as we think or feel¾ we then experience thoughts and feelings about that first thought, then other thoughts-and-feelings about that thought, and so on. Technically this is called self-reflective consciousness. Practically, it's the Frames for the Games that we play in life.
