  • Breathing by Michael Grinder- Supported by Sarah Payton (2015)
    • Michael Grinder’s concept of the chemicals of breathing (specifically “Inhalation” and “Exhalation”) finally has support from Stephan Porges’ Polyvagal Theory.
  • Overtrained in Eye Contact (2016)
    • The western world is overtrained in eye contact. This three minute clip explains the effect of eye contact, when to use it, and an alternative to eye contact. The language you will walk away with is that eye contact is referred to as 2-point communication. The alternative is called 3-point communication.
  • Inhale & Exhale Chemicals (2010)
    • Chemicals are different during inhalation and exhalation. You will discover this difference by duplicating what Michael Grinder demonstrates. During inhalation, the body releases chemicals of flight or fight. During exhalation, the body releases chemicals of calmness.
  • Advanced Teaching of Talking During Person’s Exhale (2013)
    • Of the four categories of non-verbal communication, breathing is the most powerful and cross-culturally accurate. When someone inhales they release fight or flight chemicals. When the person exhales, chemicals of calmness is released. By talking during the person’s exhale and gradually talking longer and longer, the person’s metabolism calms.

  • High Expectations (2009)
    • How we position our forearms when not talking communicates volumes about our expectations of ourselves and others. There are three recommended positions.
  • Gesture Errors (2009)
    • Most of us communicate OK when we are speaking — it is during the pause that our skill level is revealed. How we talk reflects our culture, and surprisingly, during our pause we show our intelligence cross-culturally.
  • Breathing (2009)
    • “Breathing” is the most important of all four categories of non-verbal communication. How we look, sound, and move are reflections of how we breathe. Breathing patterns are the most sophisticated of all non-verbal patterns; they warrant our patience as we learn them.
  • Masseuse and Breathing (2010)
    • Michael Grinder’s demonstration of breathing techniques.
