The field of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is both powerful and profound. As Richard Bandler so eloquently expressed it all those years ago, “NLP is an attitude and methodology that leaves behind a trail of techniques”. The attitude is one that embodies curiosity and thirst for generative creativity. And the methodology involves the application of the tools and mindset of behavioral modeling to the domain of ‘the structure of human excellence and human subjective experience’.
An amazing marriage that has produced a progeny of NLP techniques that continues to flourish throughout the world today.
But the world of science and knowledge has come a long, long way since those early days in the mid ‘70’s when Richard, John and a core of adventurers set out to explore the relatively unchartered waters that became NLP. With the advent of powerful and inexpensive computing and electronics, and driven by the exponential and accelerating growth of scientific knowledge, we now have incredible imaging and mapping devices that can peer inside a person’s brain and graphically display neural activity and processes. Numerous medical, biological, psychological and engineering advances have opened up and deepened our knowledge of how our brains, bodies and biochemistry works.
And the significance to NLP is profound...
multiple Brain Integration Techniques takes up where NLP left off. It embraces the newly discovered functional and complex neural networks ('brains') in the heart and gut, and utilizes behavioral modeling research to uncover the prime functions and core competencies of these innate centers of intelligence. mBIT provides powerful yet simple models for integrating the three brains to align greater generative wisdom in a person's life.
"mBraining takes up where NLP leaves off.
It builds upon and integrates the NLP techniques that you already know."
