Once you have listened to ‘Part 1 of the Lightning Process’ and chosen your practitioner the next stage is taking the Lightning Process seminar.
Since it’s creation Phil has continued to develop the LP to meet the needs of the world we live in, changes in science and following feedback. Because of the current movement restrictions in many countries around the world, we are now offering online seminars to allow those who need it still to access the LP seminars during this time. Luckily technology has advanced so much in recent years that it is now possible to deliver the LP via the internet. This page explains how it works and what you will need to take the course in this way.
The course is run in this same way, over 3 consecutive days – each days session lasting between 3-5 hours. It is offered in small groups or as a 1:1.
The course has been designed to be engaging and keep your attention. It will be led by an experienced, highly trained practitioner who will talk through the materials using a range of slides, stories, video and handouts (you will need to print the handouts out).
The practitioner will show you how to use the software (Zoom) – which is free to use – and help you practice using it in a pre-course call.
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).
What you will need:
- Access to the internet
- Use of a printer – to print out the handouts (these will be sent to you in advance of the course)
- An empty space to walk around in (it will need to be about 4ft by 4 ft (1.2 sqm)
- A computer with a webcam most modern ones have this built-in and a well-lit room so the practitioner can see how you are getting on during the seminar
- A space where you won’t be disturbed so you can concentrate on the training
Is there a difference between online and face to face seminars?
It’s important to us that you receive the same benefits of the LP independent of taking it online or face to face. As a result, we have worked hard to produce an online version of the LP, and although the delivery is a little different, we have found there are the same opportunities to make great change, as attending face to face.
Not everyone likes working with technology and if this is the case for you, you may wish to wait until you can attend a face to face seminar. It’s important that you feel comfortable taking the training and to choose the best delivery method for your learning style. If you have any concerns or would like to discuss what is best for you then arrange a chat with your chosen practitioner and they will be happy to talk to you further about this.
