Milton Erickson’s (1901-1980) hypnosis was based in a firm belief that the unconscious is a reservoir of potential and that hypnosis is the way to access that potential. Recent neuroscience research corroborates this belief in finding that the brain has many intelligent, unconscious pathways. These pathways function automatically and can be engaged and used to help you accomplish goals that might be difficult to do deliberately. By working indirectly and unconsciously, you can bypass conscious limitations to resolve problems and live a happy, fulfilling life. Enjoy an intensive and powerful experience of self-hypnosis that you can take home. Learn about how to go in and out of trance, use different forms of suggestion, activate your ideomotor mind-body link, and experiment with varied trance phenomena. Enhance your life unconsciously and discover how to bypass conscious limits. Enjoy deep relaxation and comfort. For therapists and health professionals, learn hypnotic techniques to use with clients and patients. With stories, guided trance experiences, applications, handouts, and a clear understanding of the effects in the brain, plan to be informed, uplifted, and transformed!
