NLP Intern Action Center
Who we are
The Intern Action Center is a San Francisco Bay area organization of
practitioners, students and people interested in discovering and developing
practical ways to expand on their knowledge and training in NeuroLinguistic
Programming (NLP), to make a positive difference in this world. We are
a center devoted to the building of a NLP community and providing a
great opportunity to practice, integrate and enhance the skills of its
What we do
We meet monthly to:
- Foster a sense of community amongst those interested in Neuro-Linguistic
- Provide an opportunity to work on "real people" and each
other, and to get quality feedback on our NLP programming strengths
and weaknesses, through the observations of meta-persons.
- To improve and deepen our NLP, presentation and personal skills
and develop a higher level of competence in what we do.
- To learn new ways of integrating NLP into what we do and new avenues
where we can apply our NeuroLinguistic Programming skills, from each
other and guest presenters.
- To learn basic "practice building" techniques and to
share with each other what is working for us and what we have found
that doesn't work.
- To get work done on ourselves.
- To form cohesive alliances with each other and active "working
groups", whose goal is to investigate organizations and situations
where we can apply our NLP skills.
- To improve and ground our NeuroLinguistic Programming abilities
and make a difference in the world by helping people who are in need.
Dates, times and location
We hold monthly meetings, the third Sunday each month from 2 - 5.

How we do it. What's the format?
This is being developed and refined.
We will usually start with an announcement and description of the NLP
topic of the day. Next will be some sort of brief "check-in"
or "open frame" during which we can bring to the group what
it is that is working us, or just report on some victory in our lives,
make a relevant announcement, or ask for support and understanding about
a difficult issue we are dealing with. Then we will have a leader or
guest presenter who will present and frame the topic of the day. We
may break into small groups to practice certain skills or processes
or to further discuss what the topic stirs in us. NeuroLinguistic Programming
NLP. We usually reconvene at the end to recap and share with the group,
anything that may be of value for the group at large and any new "NLP
The second half of the meeting is all about "free practice".
We will usually break into smaller groups of three and sometimes two,
in traditional "client/subject", "programmer" and
"meta" roles. Bring whatever is up for you in your life. Have
an opportunity to work on it with some quality people. Practice your
NLP programming skills with the benefit of "meta" person feedback
and critique (if you want it). There will usually be time to do one
rotation. Suggested ways to switch are: meta and programmer switch,
with client remaining the same - or - all three rotate, each person
now occupying a new role.
Remember to leave some time for feedback from the meta. This can be
an invaluable part of your growth as a NLP practitioner and as a person
who communicates with others.
The website may be expanded in a variety of ways that may be useful
to you, the center's membership, so remember to check in often. Your
participation is what fuels this project.

Possible Future Topics
There are a million and one topics we can cover, so let's start generating
some ideas for what we want to discuss and learn about. Here is a list
of some possibilities. Please add your own ideas for topics, by using
the comments box below. Your ideas and suggestions will be reviewed
and added to the list. Perhaps you can recommend people who would be
perfect for leading a discussion or presenting material to the group
about an area of interest.
This website will be maintaining an archive of topic areas covered.
The comments board below will also serve as a useful sounding board
and communication channel, keeping us all active and connected to one
