Transforming Realities with The Tetralemma

Beliefs, Understandings and Meanings are the foundation of our experienced reality and our everyday problem and resource trances…

Hi, James Tripp here…

If you follow my blogging (both HWT and beyond) you’ll know I often speak of how our experience of reality is shaped from the inside out, how we live our lives through a series of hypnotic loops or ‘trances’ and how our ‘worldview’ is what underpins all of that.

This is why in the coaching and developmental hypnosis work I do I always emphasise making changes at this level – working with the embodied semantics and conceptual structures. Essentially, if a person doesn’t shift the embodied understandings that hold a problem in place, they will never shift the problem.

In my work I use a lot of tools, but one that is a little more unusual AND is very effective for working at the level of understanding/worldview is The Tetralemma.

As stated in the video (please watch the video, it has a lot more detail than I am sharing here), The Tetralemma is an ancient Indian ‘non-aristotalian’ logical formula that is very powerful for shifting people into a ‘right brain’ (generative trance) space and utilising the capabilities of that space to loosen the semantic underpinnings of a problem state or identity. It can be used as a map for both a powerful spatial anchoring process OR as the underpinning for conversationally based hypnotic changework.

This video programme is a recording of a one day workshop where I taught not just The Tetralemma as a formal process, but also the principles and understandings that underpin it in such a way as they can inform your changework and coaching on multiple levels.

Trance and Transcendence…

One of the things I would like to point out here is that, beyond The Tetralemma, I am introducing my currently evolving model of ‘Trance and Transcendence’ – this is the conceptualisation that underpins my entire approach to self-evolution, developing personal adaptedness and general ‘Reality Shaping’.

Within this video programme you will not only see me outlining (perhaps ‘installing’) the Trance and Transcendence model but also, if you ‘listen between the lines’ notice that I am indirectly working to get powerful personal mindshifts for the people in the room.

Production Notes!

This programme was recorded at a live event with a small group of just 12 participants. Due to a technical issue there is a brief portion (about 10 minutes) during the first video where, due to the main microphone picking up radio interference for a time, the sound is switched to source from the ambient room microphone. This means that for this period there is an unavoidable but minor drop is audio quality where the sound becomes a little echoey and ‘roomy’. However, despite this it is still clear what I am saying throughout this section (a large part of this section is a conversational hypnosis piece to shape the engagement of the people in the room – an interesting thing in and of itself but aside from the main content).
