Some time ago, I exposed an aspect of persuasion and NLP some people would have preferred be kept hidden…the Dark Side.
For a brief period, I allowed people to purchase my course that exposed some of the most potent language patterns known to man…Dark Side I – but then I quickly took it off the market because of fear the material was going to be used for evil…
The number of calls over the years asking me to allow them to purchase the Dark Side I kept growing. It was the hottest, most powerful set of persuasion tools I have ever produced (an instant “cult classic”).
But, after releasing 17 of the most powerful patterns known to man, something inside of me told me the work was not complete – it was missing some key information that needed to be included…Dark Side II was born!
Here are just a few of the hundreds of responses I received from persuaders and who studied Dark Side I material
I owe Kenrick and his Dark Side programme a huge debt of gratitude. This programme took me from being yet another standard NLP Trainer trotting out the usual material to seriously raise my game.
The Dark Side is much more than a few “dark” NLP patterns that can harm people. It is a reframe on how you can learn, develop and apply NLP and Hypnosis.
On face value you learn a number of very powerful dark side patterns and how to defend against them. Knowing these patterns, how you can use them and how to defend against them are worth their weight in gold, but there is something far more valuable that happens when you go through this programme.
On this programme you are faced with a completely new way of thinking about NLP and Hypnosis persuasion patterns. The natural conclusion of this is you will find yourself far beyond the skill levels of any standard hypnotic persuasion skills course.
When I went through the Dark Side I had already been a training consultant for six years, an NLP Trainer and Hypnosis Instructor for four years and considered myself very skilled in this area. I learnt a huge amount of new material and found myself on a new level of persuasive ability. Pure and simple, this course is dangerous not because of the Dark Side Patterns but because it gives you a new frame of reference for what is possible with Hypnotic Persuasion Skills.
The Dark Side program is frankly amazing stuff. I had no idea the damage that relatively passive communication techniques could cause. It was pretty scary when I first listened and watched the program. I think The Dark Side underscores the potential for all of your communication skills and techniques. It’s only when you see the worst that you can imagine the positive ways that these can be used. The rapport techniques are really great stuff. The claw is pretty powerful too. You certainly get a rapid response. Thank you Kenrick for having the guts to teach and release The Dark Side. If you don’t know about it, you can’t defend against it. Ignorance is not bliss. Thanks to you, we now know about it.
Being aware of the ‘Dark Side’ patterns has allowed me to intervene in several conversations before things got out of hand. These were not formally trained people, but all were in a highly emotional state. Understanding the harm that they could potential do to one another, allowed me to easily break the conversation and re-direct it. Not only are the specific examples in the ‘Dark Side’ valuable, but understanding the overall strategy of highly negative and harmful words allows careful and informed communication. I think I was once told, ‘Sticks and stones may break your bones, but WORDS can really hurt you…’ Thank you for helping raise our awareness to this ancient, lost secret.
I’m glad you published the ‘Dark Side’ because of their usefulness for both Good and Ill. NLP is all about choices and you gave us both sides of it. I loved the difference the difference the Dark Side patterns and techniques made as it sure has made my life far easier.
Your Dark Side has become a continual study for me. Unlike many courses, your course lived up to its expectations set by your sales letter. My favorite pattern that I am using in my sales presentations is the NO LONGER TRUE pattern. Your material was easy to understand and presented in a comprehensive and easy to us format. Thank you for revealing these secrets.
The Dark Side was such an eye opener. I have the Max Persuasion collection but this one really made it sink in. I have just began to use the techniques and although I have not mastered everything, It’s amazing how simple it is to find my clients criteria, expand it, turn it around and hit my clients right between the eyes and watch them get excited about my products. You were right when you said that you will want to give more information, but you don’t have to. Being a small business owner, this is a vital tool that I use on a daily basis. Thank you for releasing this program.
They call me a master of persuasion because I can teach persuasion skills more quickly, effectively, and simply than anyone alive. But there is one set of skills that I never wanted to share with others for a very important reason. I believed they were too powerful and – quite frankly – too dangerous for the general public.
Back in the late 70’s and early 80’s I studied with all three co-founders of NLP and became a NLP trainer under Richard Bandler.
It was during this time when one of the “founders” of NLP used a technique on me that absolutely devastated me.
Back then I had no clue what it was or what it was called, but it was so powerful, it took months to recover from it’s use on me. It took away my identity and even blurred my purpose for living. It was nasty to say the least.
Today, I call it The Scramble. Only later did I learn that this was my first exposure to “The Dark Side.”
Are People Still Using Dark Side Tactics…
In recent years, I have received emails from people detailing how a select group of NLP trainers have used these patterns on them – with explosive effects. I have been hearing more and more of these reports.
Since I released the Dark Side, new frightening reports about people combining the Dark Side with Hypnosis have begun to surface.
I reported about a student who had taken an NLP training in Europe. In the course of the training, the student had a disagreement with the trainer. To get even, the trainer used one of these destructive patterns on him. Weeks passed. His life was in shambles. He couldn’t work. He lost all of his friends. He learned the power of the Dark Side – against his will.
When “The Dark Side” patterns are used – it not only can change an opinion, it can destroy and totally obliterate a mind. And it stays in operation until you get it fixed or until you slowly, over time, put the pieces back into place. But for some people, that will never happen and the devastation is total.
What’s this got to do with you? Everything… if you want to protect yourself from the hidden power of these techniques. And start becoming aware of how they are being used.
But, as I’m about to reveal, I deliberately kept these patterns to myself.
My trainings are comprehensive. I teach everything you need to know about persuasion from power-rapport tactics, to criteria elicitation, and language patterns. If you master the techniques I teach you, you are a powerful persuader.
The Missing Piece of Persuasion that I kept secret…
You might have been to my seminars, you own my courses, you’re a student of persuasion . . . but I’ve held something back. I did it because I just couldn’t convince myself to release it. I left out this major key to persuasion until now. You absolutely must have this piece to understand the “other” side – the Dark Side.
This is only for SERIOUS students of persuasion and NLP – if you’re ready, in your mind, to move to this level – then you owe it to yourself to take action and purchase Dark Side II.
But although the “Dark Side” can be used for persuasion and understanding of what is possible, in most cases I have encountered, people are using it for destructive purposes. Lives are being destroyed – like mine nearly was.
My Dilemma that has kept me up for Nights on End
Here’s the problem I face: Once you learn these powerful patterns, you can rapidly and easily recognize when someone tries to use them on you. These patterns are getting out in the worst possible way. A few trainers are using them just to be nasty and vindictive. Notice, I’m hearing about the patterns being used here, not denials. So right now, the only way to learn about these patterns is to be on the receiving end with obvious consequences.
It’s EASY To Cause Serious Harm With These Patterns!
I know most guys just refuse to believe that this type of power and ability exists. But that’s like defending yourself using the “Ostrich” strategy – hide your head in the sand and you’ll only get your butt kicked.
They are furious that I want to make these patterns public.
The reason they are furious is that this is a well kept secret of the “elite” in this field. The few that know these patterns aren’t about to let these secrets out. They would prefer to be the only ones to use these powerful secrets at will.
The only way I know these secrets is that I was personally taught this by the same “Guru” that did it to me a few years after I “snapped out of it”. I was taught the pattern and asked to use it on a person the “Guru” was upset with.
Well, listen up. You can start noticing these patterns in your life and protecting yourself from them overnight. What’s more…
- It doesn’t matter if you’ve been certified in NLP…
- It doesn’t matter if you never heard of these patterns before.
- It doesn’t matter if you sell real estate, do financial planning, or some other form of persuasion.
Nope. The ONLY things that matters… is your desire to start noticing when someone starts to use these devastatingly powerful patterns on you or wanting to know what is possible with these skills.
Spilling the Beans in Public
When I released Dark Side I, I decided to break ranks on this one and reveal these patterns so people can protect themselves appropriately.
My decision to release Dark Side II has caused even more waves in the community… I know I am going to loose some “friends” when this material is released, but I realize it is my duty to arm you with this new material!
But what you don’t know, will hurt you.
Remember, I had these patterns used on me – that’s how I know what it is. Then it was explicitly taught to me for the purposes of having me “take someone out” mentally. (I refused but to this day, I wonder if he found someone else to do it.)
Then, someone came out with a pattern so vicious that I was stunned – A Secret Relationship Controller Pattern. After I realized that people were serious about using the strategies and concepts I had popularized for manipulative and down right evil purposes, I decided I’d begin to look for and study all the other ways this material could be used negatively.
Whenever I would get a report of a Dark Side pattern being used, I asked people to send me the material and I began compiling it.
The Dark Side can be seductive. If you are not well grounded in the techniques and strategies I teach I worry you will fall victim to their seductive power.
Warning! This material is not for the weak minded or squeamish.
You see, I’m worried. What worries me is if someone uses the Partner Destroying pattern to simply eliminate someone’s husband/wife or boyfriend/girlfriend so they can have the person for themselves. That’s not at all what I want to see people do with this material!
In Dark Side I, I boiled 60 tips down to their most powerful, most deadly – the ones that if you don’t know of their existence they absolutely will kick your behind if they are used on you.
I also choose them in terms of their usefulness in other areas. Some of these or the strategies behind them can be used for good as well. But it’s in the understanding of how they can be used so viciously that you will understand how to use them for less destructive things.
In the end, I had just 17 patterns. Just 17…and that is exactly what was taught in Dark Side I and in Dark Side II I will be taken these patterns and more to a whole new level of understanding.
I realized years later that it was lacking some major principals…here are just a few of them that cover in Dark Side II.
- How you can easily put these patterns into practice for good or evil.
- How you can “clean yourself” if you ever had one of these patterns used against you or if you used one of these principals yourself.
- How you can use your energy and others to skyrocket your persuasion abilities even to influence a crowd of hundreds of people – and the one principal you need to know not to have ever last drop of energy sucked from your “life source”.
- How to gain instant report with someone – even if they try their hardest to resist (having report is a key component in making you an unstoppable persuader).
- How to become a pattern recognizing machine and use their patterns to instantly install what you want directly into their minds.
- How you can defend yourself against a dark side assault and turn the assailant into the victim.
- How to utilize “laws” to take your persuasion skills to levels you never imagined possible and compound the effects of these skills.
Protect Yourself Against the Dark Side
You can “install” these skills into your life almost overnight. Just listen to these astonishing recordings… and then you’ll be ready if someone ever tries to use these patterns against you. Then when they try to use these patterns against you…
You’ll be ready to defend yourself! (And quite frankly, at that point, you’d be justified in using them to defend off your attacker.)
These patterns are extremely powerful. But they’ve been held for too long in the hands of people using them for vicious purposes. And that’s the problem.
Listen: When you are suffering and in pain because someone has just used a slick version of the migraine installation pattern on you, and damn it, you are doubled over in agony. . . well. . . as soon as you discover that it was a Dark Side pattern that made you suffer, you’ll wish you had grabbed Dark Side II to defend yourself and clean yourself after the attack.
Or, let’s say you are going to make a sale and you find yourself folding before a negotiation even began, chances are the other person used one of these patterns on you.
No one buys life insurance and looks forward to using it. These patterns are your insurance. One day you will be thankful you recognize and know how to use them.
Dark Side II is over 11 hours of brand new information broken up into 6 modules (+2 Bonus Modules Just Added).
Where Dark Side I was dedicated to just the patterns themselves, Dark Side II expands on how you put these patterns and concepts to use. Dark Side II takes the material to a whole new level.
Don’t worry if you don’t own Dark Side II am giving it to you for FREE…
Dark Side II also covers the patterns, but it is not the patterns that are most important…it is the new concepts and revelations I had over the last few years while putting this material together for you.
What’s Included in Dark Side II?
Dark Side II is composed of 6 modules + 2 bonus modules, 8 recorded Live Q&A sessions (recorded when I recently sold Dark Side II to a few of my subscribers), workbooks, and transcripts of everything.
You will get instant access to Module 1 and a full 30 days to make sure it is right for you.
This is over 20+ hours of brand new cutting edge persuasion strategies. That you won’t find anywhere else on the planet.
Dark Side II Modules Overview
Module I – To be an effective persuader you need to have rapport with the person or persons you are trying to persuade. In this lessons I cover gaining rapport and not by the traditional matching and mirroring you learn in NLP trainings or Sales programs.
You will be blown away by these methods that are rarely taught are known about.
Module I also includes the importance of the pre-frame and lays the ground work for all the techniques and patterns to come.
After you go through the module you will be a rapport machine – you will be able to command rapport at will and be able to throw away all of those out dated matching and mirroring techniques…don’t get me wrong they do work and there is a place for them.
Module II – Introduces the pattern interrupt and why it is so powerful to installing what you want into the minds of others.
I also go in-depth into what are patterns, the power of patterns, how to start recognizing patterns in others and different ways to use their patterns for good or evil.
This lesson is over 1 hour and 45 minutes long and by the time you finish it you will have a whole new framework for recognizing patterns, interrupting patterns and knowing how to use them to install what you want into anyone.
Module III – Covers the power of energy and visualization for influence of a group or person.
Now, I know many of you hear the words energy and visualization and you mind starts drifting off to hocus pocus new age junk…But I am here to tell you even if you don’t believe in the power of energy and visualization just using it as a construct in you mind will yield powerful results beyond your expectations.
I take these principals ever further…on how to use them to “clean” yourself if you are ever forced to use the Dark Side or have come under an attack of the Dark Side.
Let me tell you that these principals can save your life.
Since I released Dark Side I over 6 years ago, not a week goes by when I don’t receive an email from someone who has been exposed to a Dark Side attack and their world has crumbled beneath their feet. It happened to me and without these cleaning techniques your whole reality can break apart.
When you finish listening and studying module III you will not only have a whole new appreciation to the power of energy and visualization, but how to use it for your benefit to influence and clean yourself of negative energy.
Module IV- Of the many techniques covered in Module IV Fractionation is one of my favorites and most powerful. Fractionating is where we start something and don’t finish it, we interrupt it and then we go back to it again and the we interrupt it again, and then we go back it again, and then we interrupt it again.
Many of you might be familiar with this process if you studied hypnosis. Using principals of fractionation will allow you to open up your minds of your prospects and allow you to install what ever you heart desires. It is truly a powerful technique used not only for the Dark Side, but persuasion in-general.
After you finish the material in Module IV you will know several ways to fractionate the minds of your prospects, but also learn about the “One Big Thing” that will change the way you approach persuasion and influence.
Module V – The material in module V is one of my favorite lessons I have ever taught in my 30+ years of persuasion – not to mention extremely powerful and will take your persuasion skills to a whole new level.
The Laws of the Universe – In this module we cover several laws that when applied to all persuasion technique will yield even more powerful results. These laws include: the law of elegance, the law of the imagination being supreme and several others.
After you go through this lesson and start applying these laws to your interactions you will see and feel dramatic results.
Module VI – In module VI we dig deep into using submodalitites, future pacing, presuppositions, ambiguity, embedded commands and some of the most destructive patterns on the face of the earth. This lesson is jammed packed with so much information, strategies and patterns, you will want to listen to over and over and over again.
By the time you finish this lesson you will have all the knowledge to defend yourself from the Dark Side and have the ability to use these skills for good or evil.
Module VII – VII – To be announced…and this new material will be worth the price of the course by itself.

Here are the Dark Side Patterns That I will Be Sharing.
- Compulsion Installer – just what it sounds like.
- Relationship Disolver – this has been used vindictively to break up relationships or by someone who wants a person who is already committed.
- The squash – a powerful way to influence outside of awareness.
- Drug Addiction – a disgusting technique enabling someone to cause a person to revert back to an addiction. Imagine it combined with the compulsion pattern. (Warning: this works to create addictions even on someone who hasn’t had addiction problems previously.)
- Dreaded Future – strategy that allows the installation of an awful future. This has been used on competition to make them voluntary drop out. There are many variations – the effects are horrendous. (There are ways to adapt this to the positive too.)
- The Cage – creating huge suffocating pressure on a person that can make them easily manipulated.
- No Longer True – This is a GIANT pattern. It can instantly wipe out beliefs, cause mental instability, wipe out dreams or goals or relationships in the blink of an eye. You won’t believe what you’ll learn when this pattern is demonstrated (and you’ll love how you can use this positively).
- Self Esteem Destroyer – need I say more? Imagine this coupled with a few others in this list such as frigidity or impotence, compulsion installation, relationship destroyers – and you can imagine the utter destruction of someone. Hopefully not you.
- Smurfing – one of the advanced modeling strategies.
- The Claw – has positive uses as well but can be very controlling.
- Impotency Installer – I think you get the point.
- Fast Frigidity – imagine this used on you from an angry man that you are breaking up with – well don’t imagine it to much. This one and the one above can be put into someone’s future causing perhaps permanent inability. Will it happen to you? I’ve heard reports of it being used on competition to cause instability.
- Vapor Invasion – a pattern that can be used for good or bad.
- The Suicide Pattern – a pattern that is very covert enabling the installation of a death wish.
- The Missile – another pattern that can be used for bad or good.
- The Paranoia Pattern – Are you talking to me? Don’t let anyone try this on you.
- The Migraine Pattern – Turns your life into head-pounding agony.
- A Secret Relationship Controller Pattern – can easily create the equivalent of a “love slave”. This is an especially evil thing to do or experience. This can be coupled with many other patterns in this list for ultimate control. Don’t let this happen to you.
- The Void – a seduction pattern that doesn’t have to be used negatively. But I’d hate to have it run on me and not know why I was feeling this way and then be easily taken advantage of.
- The Ultimate Values Destroyer – this is the one that was used on me and is the GRAND DADDY of them all. This one alone is worth the price of admission as reversing its effects can
