Do you want to captivate an audience? Add some zip to your lectures? Be remembered as an effective speaker who is invited back? Included are many demonstration techniques and interactive processes which you could incorporate into your pre-talks and include in your lectures demonstrations to make them informative and fun! I will also demonstrate an induction that I developed that induces hypnosis, tests & deepens the client in five minutes or less.
Conference Topic #2
Self-Hypnosis: Easy as 1, 2, 3 - 3 Minutes to Change Your Life
My method of self-hypnosis teaches you to formulate a suggestion, induce hypnosis, stay in hypnosis while giving yourself a suggestion, and emerge from hypnosis in just three minutes. This method is unique in that you give yourself a suggestion BEFORE going into hypnosis. With some other methods, you give yourself suggestions after you are in hypnosis. You are using your conscious critical mind to lighten the state. With this method, your conscious, critical mind is not engaged.
Conference Topic #3
