DVD | Richard Bandler: The Art And Science of Nested Loops

Filed under: NLP,Psychology — jm @ 01:16

I watched the first half of "The Art and Science of Nested Loops", by Dr. Richard Bandler today. It's great, though it could use more professional editing. You just don't get the same level of insights as by directly training with him. They use 2 fixed view cameras (perfect for a seminar recording) and the sound is quite good, but the editing feels amateurish. :-/

I enjoyed it anyway. The recording shows the part he does on the last day of a NLP Practitioner training, when he explains an integral part of his teaching technique, namely the stories he tells and how they connect. He explains exactly what states they elicit and if you saw Richard work personally, you can follow along great. He's a genius at what he does and it shows.

The first DVD ends at the point where the audience leaves to do the inevitable exercise, which is an integral part of the learning experience. So you don't get that, but I don't think it can get much better than this. I have yet to watch the second part. I hope he explains the rest of his unique storytelling style: marking the start of phrases auditorily, anchoring responses visually and so on.

All in all, the DVD is not the training and it requires a certain level of knowledge about NLP to get the most from it, but it's certainly worth it. I'm sooo looking forward to train with him again in April. Even though he clearly demonstrates during the seminar that he has no clue about rocket science ;-).
