Paul McKenna and Richard Bandler Deliver The Life You Want - by NLP Life

An extraordinary two days took place in Wembley at the beginning of October, when Paul McKenna took to the stage with Dr Richard Bandler after three long years.  The old magic was still there, as Matthew Wingett discovered.

It was a glorious day as the delegates arrived, climbing up towards the Great Hall in which the two day training would take place, and delivering fantastic views over London from the massive windows that line one end of the Great Hall.
There was a real buzz in the air as anticipation built, and then the music started and Paul McKenna was on stage, delighting charming, amusing as ever, while wrapping into his stories and his jokes the building blocks that would take them through into the afternoon session with Richard Bandler.
Always ready to try techniques outside of NLP, Paul demonstrated the "havening" technique for delegates to help with removal of anxiety, a simple and easy technique taken for the world of TFT.

That afternoon saw Richard Bandler working with the audience.  As ever, Richard employed a mixture of story-telling and direct teaching of techniques to work on the unconscious and conscious levels of the audience at once.
For me, it was also interesting to bump into people who had started their NLP journey some time before.  Rosemarie Blackthorn, a delegate who originally attended our NLP Extravaganza one day event at the beginning of the year and went on to book our Licensed NLP Practitioner course in April told me that her life had been "transformed" by her NLP training.
"I'm more confident, I am happier and I negotiated a pay rise thanks to the attitudes and skills I learned through my Practitioner training.  It was money well spent indeed!" she told me, before going on to say that she had also booked her teenaged son onto the October Practitioner course, because she was so impressed by the positive effects of the training.
The audience, at times amazed, amused and spellbound!
The second day saw a marked change in the mood of the audience.  A show of hands revealed that many were now much more relaxed then they had been on the first day, and that many, too had undergone surprising changes in perceptions regarding their lives and problems they had previously considered difficult or insurmountable.
Having seen this very often in NLP trainings, the NLP Life team were clear that this was a direct effect of Richard and Paul's training.  The second day took the training to a different gear.  While the first had been about setting up the building blocks of the training, the second day was about taking the training further, to give people more of a sense of what they wanted from life.
It's a fascinating effect of NLP training when done properly that people don't realise how much they are learning.  Throughout the two days, Richard and Paul worked to install attitudes and new beliefs that would equip the delegates with more confidence, a more can-do attitude, more resilience when troubles arise, and the ability to focus on what you want in life.  And all was performed with a slickness that made the two days seem to glide by.
By the end of the second day the vibe in the room was one of optimism and a newfound sense of purpose.
One delegate wrote into us after the day to say:
"Thank you so much for a truly amazing beautiful and magical weekend. There are no real words to express just what occurred over these two days and how much it has helped me. How did you know exactly what I needed at this particular time? The awful dread sickness and horrid depression and fear I was suffering before the weekend has gone - and let me tell you - real miracles started to occur before I even left the seminar on Sunday evening!
Everything about the weekend was brilliant. We were taken on a wonderful journey that inspired and elevanted us and left us in SUCH a better place than before. I learnt so much and laughed so much! In fact, I had such a good time on so many levels, I can say this is one of the all-time best weekends of my life so far!
Paul was just wonderful. His deep caring and superb skill so apparent the whole way through. And Richard, well the legend blasted his way through my barriers too carried by the force of his confidence and genius and charisma. These two men are brilliant and great in every sense of the word, and a true gift and blessing to mankind. Great masters come in different forms and guises through the ages - if you want to meet two of the most powerful and kind and loving ones (who can make you laugh till happy tears come out of your eyes and all your problems have disappeared) this is the event to come to!
From the depths of my heart, thank you so much. Thank you to Paul and Thank you to Richard. You have my greatest respect and deep gratitude.  I'll be quoting this weekend in years to come..."
I think that just about sums it up!
