Often in seminars and workshops (and even therapy) people have "peak experiences". They get an insight or a new understanding that seems helpful and empowering and then after a day or week, it fades. A momentous insight can be a beautiful thing ... but we want to make certain that it doesn't just make for a good moment. We want to be certain that the change is sufficient to address the issues of the past ... and resilient enough to transform the future. In today's video, Michael speaks about how reimprinting is a powerful way to ensure that the change is sufficient to take care of what has gone before, and how it can lead to a more satisfying and successful future.

Welcome to our third mini-lesson in Core Transformation. Today's topic is Perceptual Positions.
Although it wasn't included in the Core Transformation book, and isn't technically a part of the Core Transformation Process itself, Connirae Andreas explored Aligned Perceptual Positions (APP) and it is generally included in Core Transformation Trainings.
In any interaction between two people, there are three primary perceptual positions: Self (you), Other (them), and Observer Position. APP involves sorting the three positions and then aligning their various components.
To introduce the topic, this lesson includes the opening frames about perceptual positions from a live training.
Now, as I said in the video, I don't want to oversimplify things. After sorting out the positions, APP involves "aligning them". Here are some examples of what we mean: When you think about an interaction you've had in the past with another person, step into the "observer" position where you can see the entire interaction. Notice, are the "self" and "other positions" equal distance from you on one side and the other? Are they at eye level with you and with one another. What are you feeling? Are you feeling the feelings of an observer, or have you brought some of "you" into this position? Are the sounds that you hear balanced in both ears? These are just a few of the many elements that can be adjusted.
The process of aligning perceptual positions can transform all of your relationships as it gives you access to clean information and opens up some interesting possibilities.
