Hypnosis Skills Bootcamp - LIVE at 'Hypnosis Without Trance HQ'

So... you want to be a really great hypnotist?

It’s a safe bet that if you are reading this, the answer is to the above question is a most likely a resounding ‘YES!’

So where are you at? Are you there yet? Are you looking to take things to the next level?

As I write this I have just got back from Melbourne, Australia where I was presenting at the NLP SuperFest (on 'Transformative Conversation'). Whilst I was over there I got the chance to catch up with my friend and colleague James Tsakalos (James is a truly fantastic NLP trainer - if you are in or around Melbourne and looking to develop real skill in NLP, train with him), and we

had a deep and profound conversation about the nature of skills and skills training. I'm not going to go into the details of this conversation here, but it had the effect of reconnecting me with the reasons that I created the Hypnosis Skills Bootcamp that I first ran for James in Melbourne back in 2012 (though under a different name) and have run again many times since.

Well, thanks to James I'm all fired up to run it again... only this time deeper and sweeter 🙂

I created the Hypnosis Skills Bootcamp for one reason only - it was desperately needed! The original notion came about from a conversation between myself and Norwegian hypnotist Jorgen Rasmussen. Both Jorgan and I had encountered the same problem when it came to teaching the more advanced aspects of hypnotic facilitation - lack of basic skills amongst workshop attendees. Indeed it seems seems there is a problem with much hypnosis training - whilst there is a good emphasis on information and 'processes' (scripts and 'recipes') there is apparently little deep work done on skills building (and, of course, I'm sure there are exceptions to this rule out there).

What I'm talking about here is...

Gongfu!

Here in ‘The West’ the Chinese term 'gongfu' is most often associated with the martial arts, but in it’s true meaning it refers to any profound skill that has been achieved through dedicated study and deep practice. So, you could have Gongfu in carpentry, or chess playing, or archery… any skillet you can name - including hypnosis!

But, sadly, most people who study hypnosis never achieve Gongfu…

…they never achieve that profound level of skill that enables them to flow with the moment, without scripts or procedures, getting hypnosis to happening whatever happens.

And so, as such, they often lack the confidence in their abilities and the certainty in what they do that they would like to have.

Why?

Well, put most simply, because they are generally not taught hypnosis from a skills based perspective!

Maybe they go on a training or read books and get some useful perspectives and some procedures or scripts, Maybe they get a run-through of each sequence (induction, process or whatever) to aid their memorising of the material…

…but what they DON’T get the whole thing broken down into it’s component skills, and they don’t get those skills intensively drilled and ‘coached-in’!

Which, at some point, is something that absolutely has to happen!

Now, don’t get me wrong – it is most certainly useful to learn valid perspectives on the ‘mechanics’ of hypnosis! It’s useful to learn the hows and whys and whats and to get the study in…

…but at some point you have got to get hands on – you’ve got to mix it up, break it down and drill it to the point of failure and back.

It is only through doing this that you can really develop this skills you need to make it happen!

Now if you are a good ‘self-directed learner’ you can create opportunities to make this happen – set-up practise groups, do street hypnosis, find volunteers etc (all of these things I strongly recommend), but I know that for a lot of people this is not easy! They can get caught in the confidence trap and never get to making it happen. You also need to be pretty good at self-coaching in order to take this path – experimenting with differences (with a willingness to fail) and paying attention to feedback! So…

Wouldn’t it be great if someone set up an environment where you could really focus on breaking hypnosis down into it’s component skills, drill them solidly, and then build them back up into dynamic hypnotic behaviours and processes, all under the coaching guidance of experienced practising hypnotists?

Well, this is exactly what the Hypnosis Skills Bootcamp is all about - breaking it down and learning the skills in the way skills are best learned. And if you think about it it makes sense…

As I mentioned above, in the west the term Gongfu has come to be associated with martial arts, and there is a reason for this - because martial arts are skills based activities. And this is a fact that is clearly reflected in the methods teaching and training that they employ.

But imagine how it would be if martial arts was taught like hypnosis most usually is!

You get a bunch of theory on how a particular punch, kick, throw etc. works, then you get a quick demo and then you have a go… and then move onto the next ‘move’. Do you think martial artists could really achieve any kind of competence that way? Any kind of depth to their ability? NO WAY!

Which is exactly why martial arts are NOT taught that way – because teaching that is a totally lousy way to build skills!

If you look at how effective martial arts are taught, they are taught in the way that produces effective martial artists with high level skills

…via the practise of skills drills under the guidance  of a competent coach!

No boxing school would teach you the theory of a guard, jab, hook and cross, give you a quick run-through on each, and expect you to go out and win a fight! No Judo Dojo would run you quickly through the theory and sequence of a hip throw then enter you for a competition. And it isn’t just martial arts this is true for – it is true for almost all skill based activities!

No piano teacher would play you Beethovens fifth, tell you to attempt a run-through, then send you out to play a concert!

Yet, when it comes to hypnosis, that is exactly what most often happens! And then people wonder why they lack the confidence!

Now, I have to put my hand up and say that I have, in the past, been as guilty of this as everyone else – I have taught theory, models, sequences, understandings and attitudes, then implored people to go out into the world and practise. This is all good for those who do go out and get he leg-work done, but for everyone else, well…

This workshop – The Hypnosis Skills Bootcamp – is, as the name suggests, going to be VERY different.

What you are getting is a full weekend of high intensity drilling and coaching. No sitting around and just listening…

…watching, learning, doing… and doing again. And again. Every repetition another layer of adjustment and refinement.

We will be covering all the primary skills you need to lead someone in an effective hypnotic process, and some! We will look at technique, touch, timing and flow. Subtleties around setting-up. Adapting to variables. Leading with verbal and non-verbal communication and more.

You will learn how to run ‘rapid induction‘ sequences and ‘waking hypnosis‘ sequences (and how the two fit together), and you will get…

…personal input throughout from me and my coaching team.

At The Hypnosis Skills Bootcamp you will be in an environment of continued functional feedback – creating the context for you to see, feel and hear every difference and every nuance.

Now, if this sounds like a lot of hard work, well, it will bebecause that is where real skill comes from. But it will also be, in equal measure, a lot of fun and high quality generative play.  Which, I think, is also important to know!

Some Important Points!

As I have probably made clear, this weekend is about skills – it is NOT going to be about doing hypnosis… it is all about LEARNING hypnosis. What this means is…

…everyone has permission to be as bad as they need to be at doing so as to be as good as they need to be at learning.

What I am talking about here is a concept known to Zen Buddhists as ‘Shoshin‘. Let me quote from good old Wikipedia: “Shoshin (初心) is a concept in Zen Buddhism meaning ‘beginner’s mind’. It refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and lack of preconceptions when studying a subject, even when studying at an advanced level, just as a beginner in that subject would. The term is especially used in the study of Zen Buddhism and Japanese martial arts.”

So what this means is there are no expectations for anyone to be anything other than a good learner – willing to be bad in order to learn to become good.

For those who may have a little more experience, be willing to be open to all feedback and suggestion without ego, regardless of who it comes from! I will be doing the same! It is also important to be aware that we will be breaking the skills down, so some of the drills may, on the surface, seem a little abstract – not quite ‘wax on wax off’ but abstract none the less (much in the same way that scales and timing practise is abstract in music, or ‘flow drills’ are abstract in certain martial arts – but both are building and drilling essential skills). We will, of course, be building them back up again into solid ‘hypnotic sequences’, which will be all the more solid for having gone through the process.

One final thing I would like to make absolutely clear is that, because this is about skills and skill-sets, this will NOT be a rigidly structured event teaching a designated set inductions and techniques. We will work hard, have fun and roll with the dynamic. This is drilling and coaching skills not teaching a curriculum!

The Skills!

Well, a whole bunch! We’ll be drilling and developing…

  • Timing
  • Tempo
  • Adaptability
  • Linguistic skills
  • Tonal skills (voice)
  • Non Verbal Process Management
  • Physical skills (quality of touch, quality of response)
  • Pacing and Leading
  • Sensory Acuity
  • Reading Cues (red and green flags)
  • Improvisational skills
  • No Fail Manoeuvring and Attitude

...and much more!

Essentially, you will be working all the skills and mindsets you will need to take control of the dynamic that is ‘hypnosis’, and lead hypnotic interaction towards an optimal outcome.

Just that simple!

it will be about honing and refining the skills that will enable you to do hypnosis well. Yes you will lean some processes. Yes you will gain a lot of insights, but primarily it is about the skills. Skills, skills and more skills.

OK – that’s enough said! You can get a good sense of what the workshop will be about! If you have any questions, please make use of the Q&A section below.

Best,

James Tripp

    Hi James
    Hope this finds you well. Unfortunately I’m unable to attend the hypnosis skills bootcamp in Noveember. Will you be running other bootcamps in the near future?

    Kind Regards
    James

      Very possibly James… Cant say where or when right now though (the last one of these I ran was 18 months ago 😮 )

    Hi James,

    I must have missed the email about this course and hadn’t logged in to see it advertised…..disappointed to have missed out 🙁 Hopefully you will be setting up another one soon, I am sure there will be quite a few more that will want to come along.
    Please don’t let it be another 18 months away :O

    Hi James, is it a good idea for a beginner to do this course?

    • James Tripp

      December 3, 2014

      Hi Conrad

      The course is suited to all levels as it is built around drilling skills and personal coaching. It will work for anyone whatever level they are at. If you are new, you will be able to do some cool stuff by the time you leave (inductions, some simple phenomena etc,)

      Hope that helps!

      Best,

    Hi James,

    Having subscribed to the HWT DVD’s and attendant documents and enjoyed the delivery, I was keen to visit and experience a live training. The recently held HBC was an opportunity to do this. I was not disappointed and got much more from the weekend than I expected. Your delivery, coaching and encouragement during the the course of the two days was top quality and created a great space in which to learn, explore and ultimately become comfortable and more confident leading people in to hypnotic states.

    I look forward to HBC 2!

    My best,

    Martin

      Actually, it’s looking like later this year and early next year. I suspect we are going to be Adelaide based for a few months and I’ll no doubt be visiting Melbourne During that period. Itinerary not set yet!

    Hi James

    Could you add me to the waiting list for the boot camp please. I was going to book a place but it was all sold out by the time I saw your response.

    My fault entirely – I should have assumed places were available unless advised otherwise

    Short notice if someone drops out would be fine.

    Thanks

    thanks lior

    • James Tripp

      August 4, 2016

      Hi Lior

      As a beginner, you will develop a phenomenal amount of hypnosis skill and unique understanding from attending this workshop. The format is built around ‘skills drills’ and builds from the ‘ground up’. There is no complex theory, just learning through fun exploration.

      Love to have you on board… see you in October if you decide to book!

      All the very best,

      James

    Hi James,
    Luckily you had a place left for me and I’m proud to be part of your bootcamp.
    Though it’s a bit weird doing your kind of reality shifting in this academic environment
    where people are hypnotised to fit the rules of our society.
    Because I’m coming from Austria you surely will supply me with more detailed infos so
    I can arrange flight and accommodation asap.
    Best regards, Dietmar

      Hi Dietmar

      Great t0 gave you on board! We will be releasing formal joining instructions next week, but until then what is it that you would like to know?

      All the very best,

    hello James I am coming to the boot camp, First though i want to say thx for the information on Les Fehmi who i heard of on your hypnosis webinar with Judy Rees. My wife uses this Fehmi space meditation everyday . The funny thing is I bought your kick start your life series at the start of the year, wondering where my life was going, what did i want to do etc, maybe that series had an affect without me realising as I am now studying hypnosis once a month in London(half way through the course now) Your bootcamp seems to exactly what i need

    • James Tripp

      September 15, 2016

      Hi Gerard

      That’s great to hear. Fehmi’s work is very cool, IMO, and very relevant to hypnosis.

      I very much looking forward to meeting you in November!

      All the very best,

      James

    Hello James
    Im full time hypnotherapist in Clinical Hypnosis, but love the sound of this will this benefit me and also how large is your class please?

    Many thanks

    Best Wishes

    Sean

    • James Tripp

      October 2, 2016

      Hi Sean

      Thank you for your inquiry. It will benefit you if you are interested in deepening your hypnosis skills, but if you are looking for ‘techniques’ that you can use ‘out-of-the-box’ in your hypnotherapy practice, then this is not the training for you.

      The workshop has a capacity of 25 which, for me, marks the approximate sweet-spot between having too many people in the room and ensuring that there is enough variety in terms of ‘drilling-partners’ (everyone responds individually, so we want to work with a good range of responders).

      I hope that helps… if you have any further questions, please do ask. And if you choose to book yourself a place, I look forward to meeting you at the training!

      All the very best,

      James

      The Bootcamp is a 100% experiential process. Each one is unique but each one is ALL about exploration through doing.

      I will be filming some bits, but if and how I use them (and which bits I use) remains to be seen!
