As a creator of Mindfulness-Based Neuro-Linguistic Programming (MBNLP), I would like to tell you that MBNLP, i.e. Mindfulness-based Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a new dawn in the field of Neuro-Linguistic Programming. Years of research has laid the foundation of MBNLP! This new approach broke down the old perspective towards looking at NLP and provided a solid ground for NLP tools and techniques for human transformation. Mindfulness-based Neuro-Linguistic Programing (MBNLP) is an approach to personal change that uses neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) methods in collaboration with mindfulness meditative practices.
Before understanding the concept of Mindfulness-Based Neuro-Linguistic Programming (MBNLP), we need to understand NLP & Mindfulness.
What is NLP?
N – Neurology - The mind and how we think.
L – Linguistics - How do we use language and how it affects us?
P – Programming - How do we sequence our actions to achieve our goals?
What is Mindfulness?
“Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.”
What is Mindfulness-Based Neuro-Linguistic Programming (MBNLP)?
“Mindfulness-based Neuro-Linguistic Programming (MBNLP) is an approach to personal transformation that uses neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) tools or techniques in collaboration with mindfulness meditative processes.”
The combined principles of mindfulness and NLP in MBNLP can effectively teach us how to prevent negative thoughts or emotions from triggering a deeper negative state or any harmful behaviours. MBNLP principles and practices taught during MBNLP workshop help clients to change their relationship with these potential triggers so that they can experience negative thoughts without letting them majorly influence their emotions and behaviours. It helps them alter their thought processes so that they do not immediately have a negative emotional response to potentially triggering situations. MBNLP processes also help practitioners to realise their dreams without losing the enjoyment of the present moment.
