Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)/ Cognitive Reframing
NLP, or Neuro-Linguistic Programming, is the science of how the brain codes learning and experience. This coding affects all communication and behavior. For that reason, it affects how you learn. It also affects how you experience the world around you. As a result, cognitive reframing is a key to reaching goals and achieving excellence.


NLP encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing human experience:

  1. neurology,
  2. language and
  3. programming.

You see, the neurological system regulates how our bodies function. Whereas, language determines how we interface and communicate with other people. However, it is our programming that determines the kinds of models of the world we create.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between the mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behavior (programming).

What Does NLP do?

NLP provides tools and skills for you to develop states of individual excellence. Furthermore, it also establishes a system of empowering beliefs and presuppositions about what human beings are, what communication is, and what the process of change is all about.

NLP or as well refer to it, Cognitive Reframing, is really about self-discovery. You explore your identity as well as your mission.

Relaxation Response

This term, the Relaxation Response, was coined by Dr. Herbert Benson MD. It refers to a physical state of deep rest that regulates the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
Dr. Benson found that regular ‘elicitation of the relaxation response’, as he phrased it,  is an effective treatment for a wide range of stress-related disorders. This has been scientifically proven.


Stress is a term used to define the body’s automatic physiological reaction to circumstances that need behavioral adjustments. When we are confronted by a threat – be it physical or emotional, real or imagined – a small region located at the base of the brain, called the hypothalamus releases hormones.

As s result, the hypothalamus causes the sympathetic nervous system to release epinephrine and norepinephrine. Epinephrine and norepinephrine are the flight/fight hormones. They are released when the body is under extreme stress.

These hormones are also known as Adrenaline and Noradrenaline.  Hence, they initiate a ‘state of arousal’ in your body when they are released into the body. As a result your metabolism, your heart rate, your blood pressure, breathing rate, and muscle tension all increase.

This is known as the fight-or-flight response as named by Walter B. Cannon, M.D., of the Harvard Medical School at the turn of the last century.

Benson, Herbert Dr M.D.

Herbert Benson MDDr. Herbert Benson is a pioneer in mind/body medicine. He brings spirituality and healing into medicine as well.  Benson is an American medical doctor, cardiologist, and founder of the Mind/Body Medical Institute at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He is a professor of mind/body medicine at Harvard Medical School and director emeritus of the Benson-Henry Institute at Massachusetts General Hospital.

He defined the relaxation response. Also, he continues to lead teaching and research about the importance and ability to counteract the harmful effects of stress.

Dr. Benson has received many national and international awards. He has lectured widely about mind/body medicine.  His expertise is often sought by national and international news media. You can see that he appears in numerous newspapers, magazines, and television programs each year.

Dr. Benson’s research extends from the laboratory to the clinic and to Asian field expeditions. His work serves as a bridge between medicine and religion, East and West, mind and body, and belief and science.

As a result, there have been more than four million copies of his books printed in many languages.

One of his books is the renowned Relaxation Revolution: The Science and Genetics of Mind Body Healing
