the course, I was a bit concerned reading about how much 'fun'
it would be. I am a software engineer, and I didn't just want
a 'feel-good' experience that didn't really teach me a lot. What
I did want was a powerful and effective set of tools for personal
a wonderful surprise! I got everything I wanted and more -and
had so much fun it has changed my view of learning. The course
is very well structured and skillfully taught. Rex is a wonderful
teacher, and I whole heartidly recommend him."

looking forward to taking away with me useful tools & skills
that I can apply in my every day life. However, all I received
was a phenomal experience. Afterwards, I felt a bit lost at how
the seminar attendance would impact or even change my life! I
did have great hopes of making phenomenal changes in my life because
that is what the Tony Robbins Companies lead you to feel, so I
was a bit disappointed. However, I wasn't willing to give up on
NLP & decided that wasn't the right avenue.
husband had heard that Rex Sikes is the best in the NLP world.
He also knew that Rex would teach skills for personal growth,
& that it would not be theorectical but practical. We signed
up together because we both wanted to master NLP & use it
in our daily lives. I really didn't know what to expect, but was
very very hopeful that this would be THE SEMINAR. Well, I'm writing
this on the very last morning of our 10-day NLP Practitioner 2000
seminar, & I feel so ready & equipped to enter my life
again. I am confident that I will be able to use what I've learned
here to enrich & bring more meaning to my life & the life

Davis, Computer Specialist, Richmond, Virginia
is possessed of exceptionally talented skills with NLP and hypnosis,
a rich array of life's experiences, and an innate perceptiveness
and insight into how people think and experience their lives.
These attributes, when combined with his heart-felt compassion
and sincere desire to open new paths and opportunities for those
who have entrusted themselves to his teachings create an incredibly
powerful and effective course for growth and positive change.
Rex has designed his coursework to blow open new neural pathways
which, in turn, leads to new insights, new perceptions, and new
options in the lives of those who would wish to venture toward
greater wholeness, happiness, and self-knowledge.
I came to this seminar hoping to acquire a broad, deep, and complete
grounding in NLP skills, including artful use of language, application
of techniques, and understanding of the technology. I thought
that a 10-day immersion in a sheltered learning environment would
be the best way to attain competence in an area that I had been
studying for over a year through reading books, practicing skills,
and attending other seminars.
the close of the first day, even though we had not touched (to
my conscious awareness) upon a single 'technique' or 'language
pattern' that I was able to recognize as 'NLP,' I knew that I
had stumbled into something that would have a far more profound
effect upon my life. The seminar proved to be more than I could
have hoped for.
was not just a course in NLP. It was an opportunity to learn things
about myself in a safe and loving way, and to gain understanding
and perspective about what I learned. On top of this foundation,
we were given the perfect tools to take these insights and transform
ourselves into something wonderful, something we chose for ourselves.
is a great wisdom in what Rex has created here, & I am deeply
grateful I was able to experience it. I have powerful and concrete
tools to take with me that have changed what I was, into who I
want to be.

is a world of difference between learning and doing. It is the
difference between wanting and taking action. For the last 2 years,
I studied NLP by reading and thinking about its principles and
techniques. Looking back on that time, I realized that I was learning
NLP and not doing NLP. The IDEA Seminar has made me understand
and bridge the gap. If you are interested in taking action, instead
of just thinking, take the first step to make it happen."
