Greetings from Sonya and Mark

Greetings to all! It has been a while since our last Newsletter. There are lots happening and life is always exciting for us. From re-establishing our garden to adapting the new environment created by a new building next door, to creating new training materials to suit different student groups. One of the most exciting things is we are about to go to New Zealand and then China to deliver the new NLP Foundations training and ITA NLP Practitioner Training. We are bringing together the latest developments in NLP and Neuro Science together so if you learn a tool today, you can use it tomorrow. From our perspective, NLP is a practical tool and learners should be able to apply it easily. As we continue to learn, update and develop in the environment we are in, we are constantly re-programing our life, and this is NLP in real life. Talk to you next time. We would love to hear your thoughts on the topics we have written below, so, send us a note. Enjoy this issue!

Metaphors We Live By (Part 2)
By Mark Spencer, ITA NLP Trainer, Educator, Coach
Metaphoric speech is so pervasive, it seems to go by undetected. For example: Your words seem hollow. I couldn’t grasp your explanation. My mind just isn’t operating today.
