Once you have listened to ‘Part 1 of the Lightning Process’ and chosen your practitioner the next stage is taking the Lightning Process seminar.
The seminar itself is an interactive teaching experience, run in an informal, discussive, class-room style. It is held on three, consecutive, half-days and attended by a few other people with similar issues (often along with parents/carers). There is also the option to take the training as a 1:1. The seminar is led by a trained Lightning Process Practitioner, using a coaching style that encourages self-reflection whilst being caring and compassionate.
A number of key concepts are explained, discussed and practiced within the seminar; all of which are designed to encourage an understanding of how we can use the brain to make changes to our body’s level of health. These topics include:
- How important the words we use are in activating brain pathways
- How movement can change brain activation and health
- How to develop a supportive internal dialogue
The practical teaching elements include mental rehearsal techniques, the use of simple postural exercises, movements and gestures (including a ‘stop’ process to interrupt unhelpful pathways) and self-coaching tools that help to steer the brain towards pathways that stimulate better physiology and recovery.
Each day some simple homework is given, including self-devised goal setting, that helps put the tools into practice and ensures the main teaching points have been understood. On day 2 and 3 some time is spent reflecting on successes and any issues when using the tools outside of the seminar (this is why it’s run over 3 consecutive days).
