OVERVIEW OF TRAINING :
“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” – Buddha Siddharta Guatama.
This was my experience training the students at Mahsa University. They already had the basic knowledge on the importance of reading body language at their workplace.
They were keen to learn more and found the NLP eye movement very interesting. I also realized that even though it’s hard to fake our emotions and eye movements simultaneously, there are some people who are very good at controlling their eye movements and emotions. One particular student who happens to be a Bharatanatyam (traditional indian) dancer could control her eye movements during this exercise.
Professor Jo from Burma expressed that all Doctor’s and nursing students must be able to read body language before graduating. By doing so, they will be able to read patients emotional state accurately, empathize and most importantly, they will be more aware of their own body language when interacting with patients, next of kin’s and colleagues.
Students enjoyed learning about cultural gestures and their meanings.
Some of the male students found the hand gestures especially “genital framing” amusing because they were always displaying these gestures without understanding the message behind it.
