In practices and paths around the world, going beyond the appearance of division and meeting instead at a place of oneness is a core value and goal.

One of the fundamental presuppositions of NLP is respect for the other person’s model of the world. This is vital in giving overall respect to others, as a practice in honoring others and as a facilitator in sharing compassion. It is also important in being able to help other people by meeting them exactly where they are.
