The Lightning Process.®

The Lightning Process® is a three day training programme that looks at the science behind how the brain and body interact.

This is a life changing programme that gives you powerful tools to influence the brain-body connection. By retraining old and unhelpful patterns of the mind and body, we can create new life-enhancing patterns that promote health and vitality.


"Research suggests the mind-body connection might be medical science’s biggest breakthrough

– the Lightning Process teaches you how to use it."

— Phil Parker


The Lightning Process is an interactive training programme that is run over three consecutive half-days. The training is designed to empower people to influence their own health and well-being in remarkable ways. The training can be tailored to meet the capabilities of all kinds of people and is not vigorous or physically demanding in any way.

The Lightning Process® incorporates principles of Neuroscience, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy, Coaching and Osteopathy. All of which are combined to foster an understanding of how we can use the brain to make changes to our level of health and wellbeing.

Over the three days we will discuss how much of an influence the language we use has on our neural pathways and how posture and movement can change brain activation and health.

The practical teaching elements involve gentle movement, meditation-like techniques, mental exercises, and self-coaching tools that help to steer the brain towards pathways that stimulate better physiology and recovery.

With practice you can use these tools to change the way your nervous system works - switching on pathways which promote health and switching off the ones which aren’t so good for you.

Some of the key concepts we cover over the three days:



The brain’s ability to change in response to how it's being used - This allows us to make new changes (that become automatic) which lead to profound improvements in health, happiness, and well-being. Learn more




In the past, we have tended to see conditions as either physical or psychological. There is either something ‘broken’ or it’s ‘in your head’.

We now know that this way of seeing things is scientifically inaccurate and has limited treatment options for many conditions.

Through a continual stream of research, we now appreciate the role that the brain plays in many aspects of physical health.



Also known as our Fight or Flight system - The PER is our body’s natural reaction to any threat. It provides amazing bursts of strength and speed, changing our body’s systems and hormones. This response is designed for the short term and exists to help us navigate dangerous situations. However, long-term activation of the PER (from perceived threats) is not beneficial and can have many detrimental effects on our health. 




The interaction between psychological processes and the nervous and immune systems.

An understanding of the interplay between these things can highlight how people can become stuck in their health and lives.
