Feedback from an attendee to a face-face workshop

"Hi Jenny, thanks to you and this course I am now living and loving life! I have been back training and just completed a 6km run. I LOVE your work 💕Thank you for your commitment and passion - you are making a real difference in people’s lives."

What Is The Lightning Process®?

"The changes I see in my clients who train in the Lightning Process® are phenomenal as they learn to be sustainably well again, and the research, together with my own experience, supports this". Jenny Oliver.

The Lightning Process®  (LP), is an evidence based, peer reviewed training coaching course, teaching people how to adjust the messaging throughout their brain and body; to fire and wire up useful, new neural pathways, to repair and reset all the systems in the body, sustainably calming the nervous system.

Based on studies in psychoneuroimmunology - being the link between the central nervous system, endocrine system and immune system, and the brain-mind-body connection, this workshop provides the knowledge and practical skills and tools for people to be able to make real, lasting change. Changes and choices that can be easily implemented straight away.

Both physical ailments and behavioural issues of varying depth and breadth can benefit from this training.

We know from research that new neural pathways can always grow and change. Neuroplasticity is always ON, so the more we trigger those new pathways, the stronger and faster they become. Jenny teaches you how to do this.

During this small group, interactive in-person workshop, your presenter Jenny Oliver will provide an enjoyable, inspiring, fresh and practical approach to HOW to retrain your brain and reset your nervous system for sustainable health. Giving you the ‘key to open the door’ to new health.

She will highlight the way the brain edits and filters information, the language we use and how we think, feel and act within our environment.

This is very much a small-group learning experience with Jenny able to work with each individual and their goals for the day on a far more one-on-one basis, than at larger training events.

It is therefore more in keeping with developing a personalised application of the Lightning Process® principles for each attendee that will provide practical tools and strategies for sustained change, but because it is still in a group setting, it offers a more accessible option than if participants were to look at signing up for the training as a one-on-one course which is offered over a longer timeframe (generally 6 months with coaching to keep people on track and ongoing resources and communication).

What to expect from this workshop:

  • Small group of 10 people in a beautiful home in Epsom. Relaxing and yet an environment conducive to making change.

  • You will not ‘share’ your issue around the group or be ‘put on the spot’. This is  your personal experience of making the changes you want and/or being provided with options to take back to your clinics/practice.

  • The content is research based, new, interesting and engaging – seminar style -  involving a wide range of learning styles.

  • You will receive resources which cover all the concepts taught.

A selection of comments from previous LP online workshops with Grow

"Thank you Jenny. I could write a novel on what my top take-aways from the day were, but will narrow it down to the top 4. Firstly as someone doing systemic sclerosis I was totally inspired by Jenny's daughter's story - thank you. Second is the huge idea that we can "recode and update our software." Thirdly - the 5 steps - lifechanging! Fourth - every moment of every day is a choice"

"I gained lots of practical ways to help people get unstuck".

"I learnt the simple effective steps to the Lightning Process that I didn't previously know. Loved the quick exercises /brain breaks too".

"I now know new ways to step away from and reframe internal or external pain."

People leave this workshop feeling:
'Inspired’, ‘enthused’, ‘encouraged’, ’equipped’, ‘energised’, ‘reinvigorated” and ‘Keen to share with my clients’.

Dr David Doig MD
Hawkes Bay based David Doig has practiced as a GP for 20 years, and in the last five of those, he has referred a dozen patients to The Lightning Process. Of those, most have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome – a condition he describes as “devastating in terms of its effect on people. It’s a physical illness that frequently renders patients incapable of doing their normal job, participating in family life, being able to exercise and so on.”

Of those 12, 11 have had positive results. “They have become more confident in managing their illness and, for the majority, participating in The Lightning Process typically marks a turning point for them, from what seems like a progression into loss of life’s enjoyment, to regaining control and starting a recovery process.” The 12th patient, he concedes, “felt it gave them no benefit at all”.

Doig says the controversy around the training comes from it sounding “a bit magic and strange” as well as there being few scientific trials to prove its effectiveness, or otherwise. “It’s impossible to run a randomised control trial vs placebo for a technique like The Lightning Process,” he says. “Individually targeted therapies are very difficult to gather evidence for – participants either know they’re doing it, or know they’re not. And anecdotal evidence doesn’t carry a lot of sway in the medical community.”

But, he says, the proof for him is patients whose lives have improved after completing the training.

That’s because the brain can, in fact, influence your immune system and hormone systems and potentially you can start to heal problems that have perhaps become ingrained. Your internal and external language can shape the structure and function of the brain. From my perspective as a clinician, if you can afford it and if I know it’s not going to do you any harm, and if it makes your experience of the disease more manageable and more positive, then that is a benefit I would like you to have. I don’t like withholding things that work.”

Your Presenter

Jenny Oliver

I teach in the field of psychoneuroimmunology – I know it’s a mouthful to say!
After life changing events in my family, I left fulltime teaching in a secondary school to train chronically ill and stuck people in the Lightning Process® training (LP). 

I have always loved all things brain – from designing the successful children’s Spring® brain, mind, body programme to teaching those with special needs and neuro divergence. To me, every day brings hope, change and vitality back to those who need to know HOW to use their brains to heal their bodies. 

Having completed a full teacher’s practicing certificate, a Batchelors degree in Education and a Masters in Coaching, NLP and Anatomy Physiology from the Phil Parker Training Institute in London, I am an educator, known for my innovative teaching and coaching style, and recognising the potential and possibilities within everyone.

I run workshops across New Zealand and online, and I am passionate about delivering talks on this important topic to a wide variety of institutions and groups. One of the things I love about this training is that the Lightning Process® can be applied into a wide range of programmes and applications - for example: children, parents, teenagers, and women’s health issues.

In my spare time you’ll find me spending time with my family and climbing up any mountain I can find.

The transformation of a Monarch butterfly from chrysalis to being full emerged within a short period of time embodies the philosophy of the Lightning Process®  - enabling the recipient of the training to ‘take flight’ and be ready to face the world with a new-found understanding of themselves and empowerment.
