Day 28 – Liz’s NLP+ Commonwealth Journey

20/03/2015

Today was my last bus trip and I studied the route, observing every landmark and street almost with a sense of pre-nostalgia…Today was also the solar eclipse and soon I was walking past Sainsbury’s through the short-cut where the birds have greeted me with their morning calls, and where I began to see (and feel!) the on-set of the phenomenon.

 

By the time I arrived at Nuffield Health Centre it appeared to be twilight…fascinating! Apparently the view from Birmingham was one of the best owing to the fairly clear skies.

 

After a brief ‘viewing’ it was back to business literally, with an important morning session on Corporate Values Alignment, using the Robert Dilts Model as a foundational support; next it was Quantum Linguistics – Sleight of Mouth patterns and Prime Concerns…ending the day with the origins of ‘Spin’ with Edward Bernays who single-handedly changed the concept of ‘propaganda’ to ‘public relations’ in the mid-20th Century…as if our heads weren’t already ‘spinning’ enough after a day of reframing and inductive reasoning! I fantasized about how to use these patterns to completely confuse and bewilder my friends back home…J.

The day closed with vegetarian curries at Jyoti’s Restaurant compliments of Mark and Nicky to celebrate the successful ending of my Commonwealth Fellowship journey. Jane joined us and a good time and delicious food were enjoyed by all…we were so hungry we didn’t even stop to take photos before it was too late…and the damage was already done!!
