Introduction to the Art of Rewriting in Business Management

Communicating Effectively In Business

Nearly anyone could improve their communication skills. This seminar uncovers a number of hidden reasons why we miss communications with husbands, wives, children, parents and especially at the work place. The seminar sets up a hypothetical reality for the duration of the two day encounter which sets new rules from which to communicate. These rules may be adopted permanently or not.

Once those rules are understood, a practice program is written by each member in the seminar. This process is enlightening when rules such as no blame or balance internal and external reality are applied to what the seminar members say about themselves. Lilly’s Goals/Means program is used as the basis for this encounter.

As the seminar progresses many Lilly definitions are brought to the participants’ attention so that each step or slot in the Goals/Means program takes on very personal meaning to everyone in the seminar. It is advised that each seminar member bring a Goal with him/her to seminar. A Goal should not be anything earth shaking as this is merely a practice run through a programming process. For those who want to apply a more serious set to their resident programming we suggest the Art of the Rewrite seminar.

The Introduction to the Rewrite is held on two weekend days. The length of the seminar depends on the number of participants and the difficulty they encounter in writing what they consider to be their ideal program.


DATE, TIME, LOGISTICS: The seminar is a three-day seminar that happens via Webinar. A person can take the seminar from home or at a nearby, participating float center. Check the Calendar for available dates.

PREREQUISITES: Participants should have read John Worthington’s The Office of Shaman before taking the seminar. Participants normally have at least one conversation with a Mental Arts facilitator. It is recommended participants complete ten or more hours of floating before taking the seminar. Accumulated time floating helps people slow down to begin to consider different points of view.


What People are Saying

After floating for several months it became clear that floating was just the beginning, there was much more to be explored when it came to slowing down and doing inner work. So when I learned about the “Intro to Rewrite” course that iFloat offers I knew it was something I needed to experience. The seminar was very much a “revealing” experience for me in the sense that I became aware of a much deeper/richer external reality. It was the first time where I saw the limitations that I set upon myself and upon my relationships for what they are and saw that they are facets of myself that I can change. I walked away from the course looking at the world and how I move through in a whole new way. – Mike Seabrook, Engineer

This is the place to get started if you are interested in exploring how you think. Floating experience is helpful, courage to be honest with yourself is required. I was walked through a process of viewing my own inner workings on increasingly deeper and deeper levels. I would recommend this for any person interested in personal growth and evolution. Regardless of your expectations you will be caught off guard with this wonderfully challenging introduction to the real you. – Paul G.

The intro to the re-write seminar was an invaluable experience for me. Learning this process has been so important in helping me shift out of dysfunctional patterns and behaviors and this is a tool I will have for the rest of my life. I loved being in the group setting and getting to learn from other people’s experiences as well. After the weekend workshop and diving deeper into the re-write process I found my ‘need’ for traditional therapy has become almost non-existent! I highly recommend this for anyone looking to increase self-awareness or who is struggling to overcome the challenges, shortcomings and insecurities that hold them back from becoming their best selves. – Jamie McKeown

By taking the Intro to Rewrite seminar, I gained a new perspective to understand my own behavior. The seminar provided me with a tool set. The tool set is like a pair of glasses which allowed me to “see” areas which had previously been “blind spots.” It was quite amazing. The experience helped me write a personal statement and complete my application for law school. Prior to the seminar, I had been dragging my feet on completing this goal for quite some time. After the seminar my perspective shifted which allowed me to get down to business. I would recommend the Intro to Rewrite seminar to anyone who is interested in tackling a less-than-productive habit or just general personal development. – Anne (law student)
