Self-Actualization with L. Michael Hall, Ph.D.
I am delighted to have in hand, and to recommend the newest Downloads created by Tom Welch of NLP and Neuro-Semantic Productions. These were created in March 2007 when Tom flew to Portland Oregon to videotape the very first (I mean the very first) workshop of the Self-Actualization model that I had been developing in Neuro-Semantics. Throughout the rest of 2007, I delivered that workshop a dozen times in Mexico, Australia, South Africa, Switzerland, France, Italy, London, etc.
2007 also saw the publication of the first Self-Actualization book, Unleashed: A Guide to Your Ultimate Self-Actualization. Now the 3-day workshop, while derived from the book is very different from it. The workshop is designed around the three phenomenon of self-actualization.
In the training those three factors are known as “the three acts of the drama of self-actualization”-the Construct, the Crucible, and the Zone. With a day devoted to each, the workshop is designed to enable you first to claim and reclaim and fully own your meaning-making powers in the Construct of your framing mind. After all, you are a framer. As a being without instincts, you are thrown upon your ability to discover and create meaning, which you do in your mind. And as you do, you build frames of meaning, layer upon layer, to construct your personal sense of reality-what things are, what they lead to, and who you are. You are a meaning-maker, but are you an effective one? Do you make rich, great, and exciting meanings for yourself and others? That’s the question.
On Day 1 we invite you to discover the ladders of meaning that you build around things, the quality of your meaning-making, the cognitive distortions within it, and how to become a powerfully positive creator of meaning.
On Day 2 we invite you to use your meaning-making powers to construct a Crucible so that you can take into that special space the meanings that no longer serve you, that limit you, that hold you back and interfere with your full self-actualization. Then into that Crucible you can tap into some very, very powerful change factors so that the old meanings can melt down and be reformed into more enhancing meanings. The Crucible is a place for change-for the transformation of unlearning what no longer empowers you.
On Day 3 we invite you to begin synergizing your highest meanings into your best performances so that you can enter into the Zone of self-actualization. This is the place where you find that whatever you do is meaningful and whatever you consider meaningful, you can do. Self-actualizing people are like that-they live highly meaningful lives. And they can do that with the simplest of things. In Neuro-Semantics we call this place of being “in the zone”-the “genius” state. It’s a state of total engagement wherein you are at your best with all your resources available.
Are you ready for the Ultimate Self-Actualization workshop? Then check the schedule on the various Neuro-Semantic and Self-Actualizing websites for the date of the next training. Or contact Tom Welch and order the DVD set. The Workshops are developing and expanding from the first one as you can expect, but all of the basics are there and you can now see them from the comfort of your own living room.
