Conversational Hypnosis and the Metaphors We Live
A Workshop on Hypnotic Language, Metaphors and Successful
By Michael Perez
Conversational hypnosis is about using language in a way that influences
the way people think at a deep, unconscious level. This isn't about
people clucking like chickens or silly things like that. It's about
a natural and powerful style of deeply influential conversation that
we can use to set others (and ourselves!) free from the challenges that
sometimes get in our way. It can help us to succeed in realizing our
'My business is like…' 'This project is like…' 'This problem
Modern neuroscience and neurolinguistics tell us that in order for
our brains to understand something, they must first find a metaphor,
a physical thing or an action in our real world -- something that we
can use as a way of thinking about a more abstract concept or idea like
a business, a project or any other really complex idea.
For example, when someone tells you that a sales pitch is 'hot' or
that someone gave someone else a 'cool' reception or that someone's
business experience has been ' smooth sailing', they don't literally
mean heat or cold or a calm boat trip. Metaphors help us easily create
This process happens entirely unconsciously. Few of us are ever aware
of what metaphors we use or how they affect our rational decision-making
processes. But the neuroscience also tells us that these metaphors powerfully
affect how we are able to think about things.
Use the right metaphor and everything seems smooth and easy in all
the right decisions seem to be obvious. Use the wrong metaphor and it’s
like rolling a boulder uphill with your nose and you're never quite
sure which way to turn!
In this workshop, conversational hypnotist and trainer Michael Perez
will teach you …
How to use the tools of hypnotic language to find someone's operational
metaphor or metaphors…
How to actively troubleshoot those metaphors in that context and
find conflicting metaphors….
And finally, how to help people try out new metaphors that might
change attitudes, outcomes and results in a very real and very tangible
There are no prerequisites for attendance. But we would like for you
to have a business idea or project in mind which you'd like to get some
greater clarity on or to bring a lot closer to becoming a reality!
