Upcoming Events

Chapter Meeting This Friday, April 11th!

Kelly Patrick Gerling “Accessing the Deepest State of Being – Part 2”

Kelly began his work as a trainer with NLP Comprehensive in 1983. He’s worked with several major NLP training organizations, including NLP Comprehensive; Grinder, Delozier and Associates; and NLP of California. He’s trained all over the U.S., and in Mexico, Argentina, and Bali, Indonesia.

Expanding on his very well received January presentation for NGHWA we are pleased to have him back for “Accessing the Deepest State of Being – Part 2”

In Part 1, we explored how an iterative series of questions may help to access a deep state of being within yourself, or within your client. In this follow-up presentation, we will explore some variations on how to use the deepest state of being questions. These variations may include the initial framing of their use; how to use them in stories; how to use them informally in conversation; and how to use your accessing of your own deepest state of being to help clients to access their own such state. We may also explore how these powerful questions can be used in hypnotic inductions.

His websites coachingforvisionaries.com and kellygerling.com provide access to his methods, articles and models of visionary coaching and values-based leadership.
