So, what exactly happens during the Half-Day session ?
This option is what I call a "classic" Hypno-Training session. It includes the Group Trance feature! So let me give you the overall structure. The session takes 4 hours altogether (i.e. half a day). But people are having such relaxing fun, that for them, the time seems to fly!
The session is split into Part 1 and Part 2 , with a break in between. This could be either a lunch break or a coffee break, to fit in with your overall conference design.
This is my opening Keynote , if you like. In this first part of the session, I run a lecture / discussion session on "The Power of the Mind". There are typically lots of questions & answers at this stage. I also explain the nature of hypnosis, and how they can all use this marvellous technique to get more out of life. Then I ask each person there to think of one "special activity" which is very important for them. It could be a "work" activity (like Selling or Decision-Making) or something they do in their private life (like a sport, for example)....and they would really like to perform this activity, at their brilliant best, from now on. And of course, nobody needs to tell anyone else what this activity might be! Then I tell them that this will be the basis for the Trance in Part 2. At this stage, everybody is hooked ! Because of course....everyone has at least one activity they would like to improve.
This is the actual trance session itself. It can take place after the break, or even later in the day, as an optional "concurrent" session. They all lie around on the floor, and make themselves as comfortable as possible. I then start into my hypnotic induction techniques. Pretty soon they have all (yes, I mean all ) drifted away into a deeply relaxing & enjoyable trance state. Then, while they are in this altered state, I guide them to literally program themselves to perform this "special activity" from now on, at their brilliant best. Later, I guide them gently back....so that they wake up feeling really refreshed and energised. We then have a general feedback session. As you can imagine they have lots of questions & stories to tell, at this stage. In fact, it can sometimes be difficult to bring the session to a close - because everybody is on such a "High" afterwards.
But does it really work ?
Yes it does ! Most conference participants feel great for days after the session. But not only that...they also start noticing the real beneficial personal changes which have already started in their lives. And the delightful thing is that each individual tends to get the results, which he or she specified . So for some people, the result is the actual healing of a particular condition, mental or physical. For others, they start to notice how much better they have become at a particular business activity - and they are really surprised at how much better their results have become.
Sometimes the results are concrete and measurable...like a dramatic increase in personal productivity - or a reduction in a golf handicap ! At other times the results are not easily measurable - but nonetheless real all the same...like a general overall feeling of well being & energy, which has replaced a mood of depression. And these results, when they kick in, are permanent and generative !
So this is not just a "stimulating conference Keynote". It's a real turning point in people's lives !
What amazes most of my conference participants is how a learning process can be so easy, and such fun...and yet, achieve such dramatic results! See the "What Clients say" page on this website.
What about the overall conference theme ?
One of the really neat things about my Hypno-Training approach, is that it is so adaptable. It can be easily adjusted to fit in, or emphasise many different themes. Here are just some examples, where Hypno-training would be a perfect match.....
--Facing Future Challenges
--The Success Factor
--Achievement for Tomorrow
--Why People are important
--Winning in tough times
--Managing Tomorrow's World
--The Winning Streak....etc
# And a gift to take away !
As part of my presentation package, every participant receives a special 1-hour hypnosis CD to take away. This is specially designed for people who have already been hypnotised by me. It's a lifetime gift. Your people can use it again & again...for all sorts of healing & self-improvement purposes. It makes a great souvenir to remind them of a truly different and memorable conference !
I have adapted the hypnotic process in order to create this unique form of personal development training. To get a good idea of "where I am coming from" with this approach - click here for a recently published article of mine, on the topic. However if you are curious about the hypnotic process itself - please click here. You will find a detailed description on this link. You can see how I use the process, when doing individual consultations. The process I use with groups, is essentialy similar.
Where I come from from....
For my work in Europe, I travel from Ireland . For sessions in North America, I travel from my base in Minneapolis .
The conference session described above, takes a half-day. But if you like what you've read so far....I can always extend this fun learning experience into 1, 2 or more days. If you like, I can even run the whole conference for you! Click here to see a possible 2-day programme.
Another possibility is that I could run a standard one & half-hour conference session for your next event. This would be a participative lecture session, including some group "guided fantasy" exercises - but without the formal trance sessions as such. Click here for details of this option.
Energise your next conference....with a really good trance! - Make sure that your next event gets talked about for years!
