Robert Stetson Shaw once observed, “You don’t perceive something until the right metaphor allows you to see it.” This concept holds true in the practice of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), where we frequently employ language models and metaphors.

As powerful tools, metaphors possess the capacity to incite healing and change. Albert Einstein further underlines the potency of symbolic language, asserting, “Symbols hold the power to influence us not merely on an intellectual level, but on behavioural and emotional planes as well.”

In this presentation, we will delve into the art of refining your language models and harnessing metaphors and symbols, drawing upon familiar examples from our daily environments – our homes.

As Eleanor Sandry remarked, “We anthropomorphise everything.” Humans are innately predisposed to infuse intent, emotions and identities into a wide array of entities, from dolphins and houses to seemingly trivial objects like Microsoft’s paperclips or LEGO blocks. We bestow everyday objects with profound meanings.

In this session, we will guide you through a journey of decoding your home using the lenses of metaphor and language. This exploration will not only augment your mastery of NLP but also enable a greater understanding of how your environment, one of the logical levels in NLP, can be optimised to yield desired outcomes.

This insightful presentation promises to be an enjoyable and illuminating experience, transforming the way you perceive your home and, indeed, yourself.
