Transformational NLP: A New Approach to Achieving Personal Change and Happiness

Why do people have so much difficulty achieving their goals, making big changes, and becoming the people they want to be? If we can imagine it, why can’t we achieve it? Why is there suffering in the world, and what can we do to achieve personal happiness and fulfillment?

Dr. Carl Buchheit, founder and director of training of NLP Marin in San Rafael, California, provides a new understanding of the human predicament. In this presentation, Carl will clarify how the brain really works. He will explain that humans have four brains, not just one, and that we have difficulty achieving our goals and becoming the people we want to be because of conflicting messages coming from these four brains. 

Carl will also show that suffering comes not only from the fear generated by our “creature neurology,” but also from what he calls “Suffering Devotion,” which is a severely distorted expression of love. Carl explains that while “Suffering Devotion” can take many forms, the most painful one involves our compulsion to (entirely unconsciously) limit and even damage ourselves in an unworkable effort to say “I love you” to our ancestors.

Carl will describe and demonstrate a new approach to achieving our goals for personal change and happiness that actually works. This method, Transformational NLP, incorporates Neuro-Linguistic Programming as well as innovations drawn from quantum physics, recent discoveries in neuroscience, and systemic constellations.  He will discuss what he calls “the primacy of conscious choice” and its “non-local” role in selecting what we want to experience as reality, and show that humans are not determined by the facts of their history.

Everyone attending will learn a completely new way to understand and make sense of their experience of being human, and will learn ways to create lasting personal transformation.

Carl Buchheit Carl Buchheit has a Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology from the International University of Professional Studies. Carl began studying Neuro-Linguistic Programming in 1979. His career in NLP began at the NLP Center for Advanced Studies, founded by Leslie Cameron-Bandler, where, from 1985 to 1989, he was an NLP trainer and, from 1986 to 1989, the Center’s owner. From 1993 to the present, Carl has been the owner and Director of Training at NLP Marin in San Rafael, California. Carl travels globally, lecturing and teaching the innovative methodology that he calls Transformational NLP, but his main focus con nues to be on working with students and clients directly. Currently he teaches thirty-five three-day training weekends per year, and on weekdays he works with fifteen to twenty individuals or couples per week in his private practice. It is possible that Carl has taught more classes and worked with more personal clients than any NLP trainer/practioner in the world.

Transformational NLP offers a new understanding of how the brain really works. Transformational NLP is a ground-breaking synthesis of psychology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), and spirituality, bridging the domains of psychotherapy and coaching. While the practice looks like psychotherapy, it utilizes NLP as well as innovations drawn from quantum physics, psychology, and recent discoveries in neuroscience and systemic constellations. In Transformational NLP, Carl Buchheit offers a new methodology to achieve our goals for personal transformation and happiness that actually works!

Transformational NLP expands the tools of traditional NLP in innovative and powerful ways. Carl Buchheit offers new insights and approaches that empower people to make choices in their lives that lead to greater joy, love, and fulflllment.”
