It is November 19, 2016. I am sitting on the porch of a cottage situated on the Western cliffs of Negril, Jamaica overlooking the Caribbean. I decided to take a few days off to get away, read, write and reflect while the alluring rhythms of the ocean waves carry me to a different planes of consciousness. The [...]

What does Dilbert have to do with Hypnosis? Many people are familiar with the Dilbert cartoon, a cartoon satirizing the workplace environment since 1989. While many people know that Scott Adams is the artist who created Dilbert they may not know that he had studied hypnosis, until recently. Apparently in the late 1970’s he had [...]

Face Reading by Rachel Hott, Ph.D.

In our NLP Level 1 Practitioner/Coach Certification Training we practice observing each other and learning about how we interpret people's behavior. We teach about the difference between interpretation and sensory specificity. Interpretation is full of our biases; we see someone who is in jeans with holes and we quickly make up that the person doesn't [...]

I remember when I was pregnant, 29 and 26 years ago respectively, I read Dr. Spock, and then books about toddlers, and then eventually teenagers. However when it [...]

By | 2017-04-27T05:24:24+00:00 March, 2015|Articles|0 Comments
