I’ve had a few people asking me, “What is New Code” and while I’ve given answers in the past, it’s a good time to answer it again.
Dr John Grinder and Dr Richard Bandler developed NLP together through the 1970s. They discovered (and created?) many fantastic skills and opportunities for change, learning and growth.
After Grinder and Bandler started working independently from each other, each explored the field further in their own way. Bandler created Design Human Engineering and more recently Neuro Hypnotic Repatterning. Grinder developed New Code NLP, first with Judith DeLozier in Turtles All the Way Down and more recently with Carmen Bostic St Clair in Whispering in the Wind.
New Code NLP brings together the latest developments from NLP co-creator, Dr John Grinder, and his partner, Carmen Bostic St Clair, and includes powerful yet easy-to-use processes for NLP change work and personal evolution. Even if you are familiar with “NLP” as a field, you will likely want to experience the latest and best through New Code NLP.
Inspiritive quote Grinder and Bostic (2000) to say that New Code is:
A description of NLP which uses a systemic approach to demonstrate and teach the patterns by providing a series of contexts in which they manifest spontaneously. In the New Code of NLP the unconscious of the client is explicitly assigned the responsibility for the selection of the critical elements-the desired state, the resource, or new behaviour. The unconscious is explicitly involved in all steps. There are precise constraints placed upon the selection of new behaviour, more specifically, the new behaviour must satisfy the original positive intention(s) of the behaviour to be changed. The manipulation occurs at the level of state and intention as opposed to that of behaviour.
