Once you have listened to ‘Part 1 of the Lightning Process’ and chosen your practitioner the next stage is to take the Lightning Process seminar.
The seminar is an interactive teaching experience, offered online or face to face. It is run over 3 consecutive half-days – each session lasting between 3-5 hours. There is the option to take the seminar in a small group or as a 1:1. If you choose to take the seminar in a group there will be a small number of other people with similar issues to you (possibly with parents/carers, if required).
The course has been designed to be engaging and keep your attention. It will be led by an experienced, highly trained practitioner who will use a coaching style that encourages self-reflection whilst being caring and compassionate. The practitioner will guide you through the materials using a range of slides, stories, videos and handouts.
A number of key concepts are explained, discussed and practised 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 tasks are given, including self-devised goal setting, that help 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).
