The Sunbeam Collection

How it feels to discover NLP, in the sound of a million sparks of colour

Dee Shipman and Paul Jacobs

INTRODUCTION

It's funny how things turn out......this book has happened because of a chance remark, a few words spoken half jokingly.

It was at the end of one of our New Oceans NLP SEN (Special Educational Needs) Diplomas. As usual I'd closed by reading out one of the poems I'd been writing for our trainings, to give a new creative perspective to Neuro Linguistic Programming.

This particular piece was "You Cannot Fix Me"; and as we were packing up, one of our trainees - a Special Needs teacher and herself the parent of an ADHD child - came up to me, tears running down her cheeks over a huge smile. " Thank you so much", she said. "How on earth did you know that about me?" And she asked if she could have a copy of it.

Having seen her rainbow reaction, Paul said to me "Tears again? You'll have to write a book of those!"

So here it is...........a book of stories, poems, metaphors, comments and thoughts, all of which grew, in one way or another, out of the NLP Diploma, NLP Practitioner, and NLP Master Practitioner trainings Paul and I do through New Oceans, and our non-profit arm, The Rainbow Journey.

All are about reframing raindrops to sunbeams, using the medium of my writing..........and Paul's inspiration.

Welcome to our world, through our words.
