Marin-Style NLP is a room full of mirrors designed to support a human being as they discover the many reflections of Self (treasures) that their incarnation has to offer. Like any room in a theme park, it is designed to be enjoyable, mysterious, and self-directed. That way, any time the participant walks in, they walk out with a greater degree of rapport with Self, other-Selves, and Life itself.
The architects of the ride are mirror makers and maze magicians, continuing to pioneer new mirrors frames, arrays, and tools to support this objective of attaining greater degrees of rapport. This is represented by the myriad of experts they source their materials from to construct the ride (e.g. Jonathan Rice PhD, Master Kaskafayet, Bert Hellinger, Jane Roberts, Ra … the list goes on).
The operations team consist of trained guides who facilitate participants through the ride. They are equipped with a myriad of tools (presuppositions, language, and calibration techniques) to assist participants with their experience. The facilitator of Marin Style change, is the guide for the participant’s ride. This particular individual will go and fully be with (consent) the participants as they discover and see the reflections of self that are revealed during the ride.
It is the guide’s role to feel what the participant is reaching to explore in the ride. And no matter how the participants react to what they discover, it is the facilitator’s role to find a space within himself/herself to look upon what is shown—with significantly less judgement than the participant has for themself. All experiences experienced within the room are recorded, included, and observed with great respect and appreciation. These stances taken by the guides, serve the beautiful function of:
- Enabling the participant to be less at odds with how it is they have been till now (enable fixed electrons to do their cheeky wave thing again), and
- Offering them a chance to re-choose how they would like to be thereon (introducing greater choice variables).
- Helping them accumulate sufficient self-rapport, that they will feel compelled at times, to frequent the room full of mirrors without a facilitator.
- Empowering them to take all of the above, and incorporate their newly available stances into the aspects of their life that lay outside the room. With time, experienced ride-takers can start to realize the isomorphic match between what is mirrored in the room, and mirrored in life as whole.
Screams? Yes. Tears? Yes. Cheers? Most definitely. Laughter? Yes. You name it. All these experiences within the room are included, and recorded. With the unfolding of time, this warehouse of data has become a milky way of data available for assessment. The architectural team analyze the data—seeking to tweak and refine the construct of the room, to improve the ease and efficiency at which greater self-rapport is achieved.
This is done without taking away from the participant’s self-directed learning. The degree of rapport to measure is simply, if more has been attained. Measuring it with a specific unit is not so stressed, as the degrees of rapport are a perpetuity.
Many participants re-take this ride many times in their lifetime, each offering new dimensions of understanding and appreciation for Self. Equally, thanks to the innovation of the architects and operations teams, almost every ride is a unique experience in comparison to before. Unlike a fixed ride in a theme park, the room full of mirrors itself continues to evolve and change with the times. It is an adaptive ride with a morphogenic field of its own.
The tagline at the front of the ride often makes not-much-sense to first-timers, “OMG. WTF? (Just shoot me!). Okay. What would you like?” But more experienced ride-takers start to see, that the words sum up the experience with great precision. Like a masterpiece watch; nothing out of phase, and nothing out of place.
