The Power of Six: A Six-Part Guide to Self-Knowledge
Keeping It Clean
by Philip Harland
This book is the first major
account of David Grove's last work by a collaborator, co-facilitator,
apprentice and friend.
thesis is simple: we each have a mind of our own. A 'personal mind', the
American psychologist William James called it. A unique, extraordinary
labyrinth of neural networks to which no-one else can have real access. Any
process aiming to help us change our minds for developmental or therapeutic
reasons must start from the premise that the choice must be ours alone.
Comment le Cerveau Ressent
Si je vous demandais de prendre quelques instants pour penser, disons, à votre amoureux… votre hypothèque… une armée d’abeilles féroces … aux Blue Jays de Toronto… il y a fort à parier que vous passeriez par une série de changements physiologiques, imperceptibles mais mesurables néanmoins, que ce soit le changement dans la respiration, le battement de coeur et la réponse galvanique de votre peau, le tout relié à une kyrielle d’émotions, passant de la joie à l’indifférence et tout ça en l’espace de peu de temps. C’est remarquable, fascinant, parce que je vous ai demandé de penser à ces choses, et non pas de les ressentir. Donc, qu’ont en commun sentiment et pensée, émotion et cognition, et quelles sont leurs différences ?
How the Brain Feels: Parts 1-5
Reflections on the Mirror Model
One of the reasons people go into psychotherapy - as therapists or
clients - is because they think (or feel) that their feeling and
thinking are somehow opposed. Passion and intelligence are ignorant
armies in a a permanent state of attrition. This paper is a preamble to the negotiations the parties must
enter before peace can prevail. It is organized into 5 parts, a
metaphor for the 5-stage feeling-thinking process itself:
The 'Mirror-model' was developed in 1998 as a means of introducing
a self-reflective, non-interpretative model of conversational change
into Organisational Healing's NLP Practitioner and Master
Clean Language as a Foreign Language
Part 1 of this article is a summary of that development, and has a
few thoughts about adapting a rigorous therapeutic modality to the
wider world of conversational change.
Part 2 will offer a detailed example
of how you can use the frames and the questions with a client.
The 2 parts can be found on separate pages in this article.
Philip Harland's report on the French NLP Congress 2001 and his description of working in French with Clean Language
A Moment in Metaphor
The only information we have about the
client at any given moment is symbolic information. What happens when we respond to that
information in the moment using clean language, and
what happens when we do not?
addiction started as the sort of petty pattern of occasional craving
that touches most of the people I know. He has a compulsion - not
for drugs, sex, smoking or gambling, but chocolate. I'm fascinated by
this because I like chocolate myself, and I can identify with him
enough to know there's a fine line sometimes between liking and
craving, and a short step from craving to compulsion. As this is such a universal
problem I want to try an experiment and share my work with Sam
as it happens. As I write we've had our first session and have contracted for
half a dozen more. We have no idea what the outcome will be.
Possession and Desire
A deconstructivist approach to understanding and working
This article is in three parts:Part 1: Violent Pleasures
Part 2: Limit of Desires
Part 3: The Physician's Provider
Resolving Problem Patterns
Psychotherapy has a history of imposing external patterns (the therapist's) on internal experience (the client's). But working with clean language and autogenic (self-generated) metaphor, complex patterns can be codified into relatively simple configurations which can be explored by the client with minimal interference by the therapist and then more effectively transformed.
My purpose in this paper (split into two parts) is to help you identify patterns and to consider ways of facilitating clients to discern, decode and resolve them through clean language and autogenic metaphor.
