    Hi James!
    A question about the changework-dvd-set:
    is it based on fast changework? I mean short scripts, direct hypnosis?

    Thanks!

      Hi Rudy

      It is about Changework tools – direct and fast tools. It is aimed at people who already have changework knowledge and expertise, giving them some extra tools. No scripts (scripts can do hypnosis and changework), just tools.

      Hope that helps!

      All the very best

    Hi James,
    I just watched your “Non-Fail Protocol” DVD set, and I was thinking about buying the other one, but I see you give it free to those who books the seminar.
    Is there a reverse offer available, some kind of discount CUPON to attend the seminar for those who buy (both) your DVD set?
    It seems logical, but I didn’t find it.
    Thank you,
    Bruno.

      I certainly can do that for you Bruno!

      If you go ahead and order I’ll ensure that you get the option to discount the full amount for the Hypnosis Mastery Programme against the training should you decide to book that too.

      All the very best

    James, I have been doing your foot stick routine as a great convincer for more hypnosis. However people that have had it done and were convinced that they were hypnotized later looked it up on you tube and realized it was just a gimmic. Would you please remove it from you tube and the public? It’s like giving away a magicians secret. I think it’s a great tool for a newbie hypnotist as my self to use as a convincer and build apron. Thanks for your consideration and your great contribution to hypnosis. Best regards, Christian.

    • James Tripp

      October 14, 2011

      That is a tough decision Christian! I thought twice about putting it up in the first place, I must confess, for that very reason.

      So, to remove or not to remove? I can see both sides of the fence!

      Oddly, I have never had anyone look it up on youtube after I have done it (not that I am aware of anyway). I wonder if there is something in the framing that is leading to people looking it up?

      I will genuinely need to consider this, so watch this space (metaphorically).

      All the very best

        As to the above request, I don’t understand how a ‘foot stick’ or a ‘hand stick’ can be a ‘gimmick’… That is if the person could not ‘unstick’ their foot or hand(!). Is that not what ‘hypnosis’ is? Making a person believe something or ‘changing their frame’ or their ‘reality’, even if later it is revealed how? I do not see ‘both sides’ as you do, and I’m glad that you’ve given consideration to this persons concerns, which I am not aware of but I’m just curious as to who a ‘stick’ could not be hypnosis, if it’s not a ‘physiological trick’ that is! Thanks.

    Hi James!

    I have up to today been looking to Igor Ledochowski for learning hypnosis (even though I as a student have never had the money to buy any products). What changed today was that I saw your video on how there is no one thing that is hypnosis. So I am now thinking that you’re the person to learn from. And since my goal is to master (at least almost) everything, I’m wondering if your hypnosis mastery programme is enough or if it’s a good start or what it is. I hope you understand what I’m trying to ask.

    All the very best

      Hi Dennis

      The Hypnosis Mastery Programme will tell you much about doing hypnosis. You will learn how it works, how to set it up, how to use hypnotic language to shift someones reality. It centres around eliciting certain hypnotic phenomena, but really they are just the vehicles for the learning.

      It will teach you everything you need to do hypnosis, but there is still a whole world of different perspectives and approaches and specialist areas of application, so it won’t teach you everything about hypnosis (nothing will.

      Also, this programme focusses on overt hypnosis rather than conversational.

      Hope that helps!

    Hi James

    I studied hypnosis with the London College of Clinical Hypnosis.
    It was a good course but I never quite felt comfortable with the process. This has nothing to do with their teaching, moreover to do with the fact I didn’t quite gel with the idea that if someone isn’t inducted correctly into trance, the hypnosis won’t work.

    I stumbled across this site and am now considering looking into your teaching to fill the void left by my training.
    So…in your honest opinion, would you suggest I look at working through the home study set or the live training? I am not exactly rolling in money so cannot afford both (just in case that was your response 🙂

    Thanks for your time.

    Kind regards
    David

    • James Tripp

      October 28, 2011

      Hi David – Thank you for your interest!

      If you take the live training, you get the home study materials in with the package!

      If you keep your eyes peeled, I will be launching some new dates within the next few days and will be offering a discount on the first 4 or 5 (yet to decide) to book.

      Do make sure you are on the opt-in subscription list if you want to know about this and get the discount!

      Hope that helps!

    Hello James,

    I hope you’re doing just fine and in a very good health. I’ve been watching the videos of your model (Hypnosis Without Trance) and I’ve really enjoyed them :))

    Well, I have some questions for you… Are you familiar with Robert Dilts’ “Sleight of Mouth” patterns and Michael Hall’s “Mind-Lines” model???
    I mean, if you have ever used any of these two models, can you report any difference in the outcome that you got with them in comparison to the outcome you’re getting from your own HTW model?? What are the differences between what you do and these language patterns?? What are the limitations of these models and your model?? Are they almost the same when you look at them from the perspective of the process, I mean these models and your HWT rely on the notion of changing/transforming beliefs (negative and positive) without hypnotic induction or trance… So, are they the same in regards to these terms??

    One more thing, what makes your model different from them… What makes it stand out??
    Honestly, I’m impressed by your results, and I would like to discuss your materials more with you and know more about them before making my purchase :))).

    Looking forward to hear from you,
    Best Regards,
    Ahmad.

    • James Tripp

      December 17, 2011

      Hi Ahmad

      First thing to say about this is that HWT and SoM are totally different things, so comparing them is like comparing chalk and cheese.

      SoM (including L.Michael Hall’s ‘Mind Lines’ version), claim to be models for using language to change beliefs. From this perspective, in my experience, there are some serious flaws with the SoM approach.

      Firstly, many of the applications seem to sit within the frame of debate. This may seem fair enough until you realise that debate is about intellectually outmanoeuvring an opponent (intellectual fighting, if you like), rather than actually influencing their beliefs. Where debate can have a belief changing effect is on those witnessing the debate (they can be convinced by the arguments, providing they do not feel threatened by them).

      So, SoM breaks a basic rule of belief change – you can’t change a persons beliefs by debating with them (there are only occasional exceptions to this rule).

      Defenders of SoM would no doubt say that this is a misunderstanding of it – if it is it is a misunderstanding arising in Dilts repeated use of debating manoeuvres as examples of various SoM patterns (including many from the public debates between G Gordon Liddy and Dr Timothy Leary). Certainly, if I recall correctly, neither Dilts or Hall in either of their works on this subject recognise the difference between debating (intellectual fighting) and influencing a persons understanding and framing.

      All that said, when you have an awareness for this, you can begin to ‘repair’ the SoM model. Firstly you can recognise where ‘winning intellectual fights’ is useful in influence – as a status positioning move (and you need to be taking a systems view here, not just a one on one influence view). Secondly, you can start to look at the SoM concepts and modify them in such a way as to take the fight out of them (when you want to use them for belief change rather than status positioning through ‘verbal combat’).

      The second big problem with SoM is that there is a lot of ambiguity in the individual strategies. Where the Meta Model and Milton Model are very much ‘by the numbers’ models, SoM takes a lot more personal experimentation and play to get it to work. From that perspective I would say that it is a badly coded model (this is the reason why so few people can actually use it effectively). All in, ‘Mind Lines’, IMO, is a better coding than Dilts original SoM… but still not as tight as it could be.

      HWT is a different kind of thing altogether – it is a set of understandings about how hypnosis works, and a set of strategies and protocols for doing it. For leading people into an altered perception of reality. The Hypnosis Mastery Programme teaches a comprehensive set of models and approaches to getting specific hypnotic phenomena happening. Erickson is alleged to have said that Bandler and Grinder “took the shell but left the nut” when they modelled his approach to hypnosis (Milton Model) – HWT is about giving you the whole thing – a complete model and approach for Hypnosis… without the necessity for evoking ‘trance’ (and better off for it). Not just ‘language patterns’, understandings, procedures and protocols.

      Hope that helps!

      All the very best

        December 22, 2011

        Hi James,

        Thank you for your honest and thoughtful reply. It really sheds some light on the subject.

        So, what you’re saying is that SoM and Mind-Lines aren’t helpful in changing someone’s beliefs because they operate in a meta-position of actually belief-fighting rather than actual reframing and belief-change… I want you to elaborate more on this please, do you mean that the problem is in their approach and motivation or in the actual patterns and how they operate?? And in either cases can you elaborate more please on why this is a problem??

        I honestly have used SoM and Mind-Lines in many occasions in my life and I admit that sometimes it didn’t work out effectively – in terms of belief change… So would HWT help me out in this?? Many people in my lives just feel down sometimes at somethings and I feel like I must help them out… Yet can’t rely confidently on SoM or Mind-Lines because they would get me in this kindda debate with them about the subject and sometimes they end up feeling even worse about the problem…

        If your HWT model can help me out in this, can you write me a simple/dummy sketch about the overall process?? For example, if someone would ask me this very question regarding SoM or Mind-Lines I would write the following:

        1) Get into rapport.
        2) Break the subject’s belief into it’s basic components (Cause, Effect and Meaning.)
        3) Pre-Frame the belief: Explore possibilities where this belief doesn’t hold true! (Using the various patterns of Counter-Exampling, Exaggeration, Cartesian Logic, Reversing Presuppositions…etc)
        5) From there… Reframe the belief: Content or Context Reframe.
        6) Then Outframe the new belief to almost every aspect of their life…

        So, can you write me the sketch of your process?? I would like to know more ABOUT it before trying it out…

        Thanks.

    Hi James. I am not a Hypnotist but over the last year i have become extremely interested in it, and have read quite a lot of mainly the free stuff. Most of what i can gather seems very hit and miss. I stumbled across some of your videos on youtube and was amazed. I work in the building trade but for a long time really wanted to work more directly with people in a way that will inprove their life. Had considered doing counselling but after much thought decided that Hypnosis is just the thing I have been looking for, and more to the point, the way you work is exactly how i would like to learn. I notice you have a workshop in March and wondered if it’ll be too advanced for a novice such as myself. I sort of understand the basics of hypnosis but don’t think I would have the confidence using traditional techniques and to be honest after watching you work I wouldn’t want to use those methods.
    Thanks and kind regards Carl

      Hi Carl

      Sorry for missing your question before!

      The Hypnosis Without Trance approach is a little different from the classic approach to hypnosis, so I always need to teach from scratch. For this reason the course is as suitable for beginners as it is for people with more experience.

      To be clear, this is a course about hypnosis and hypnotic phenomena, rather than changework as such. The skills are very useful for changeworkers, but no changework techniques are directly taught.

      To find out more, please do visit: https://www.hypnosiswithouttrance.com/live-training/hypnosis-wizardry-live/

      If you decide that you would like to come along and learn some of this stuff, I will look forward to seeing you in March.

      All the very best

    Hi again James. Just a qestion regarding Wizardry-live thing in march. I desperately want to attend this course but being in the building trade and the weather being very unkind, not too sure if by the time i get the money together you’ll have any spaces left, I should imagine it’s probably fully subscribed by now. Will you be doing another one in the near future? I have just done my first card stick and it worked twice in a row, and an arm lock straight off it. Not bad for a bricky!!! I’m loving it and so excited about learning more. Thanks for the inspiration.

    James,

    Great videos on Youtube!!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hGfIjGh5TkQ

    I would like to add my thoughts.
    1) “Persuaded” You tolded a story. the subconscious (The subject) more actable what HAS happend and what the person should do.
    2)~ “Put that aside” Tells the person subconscious, If you (the subject subconscious) have a problem with what I say, forget what you believe and change your reality of your beliefs for a short time.
    3) “Please….. feel good in yourself” This guides the subconscious to feel good, Believe what hypnotist says.
    4) “When you ….” This tell the subconscious what the hypnotist whats them to do.
    5) “Because….” This word tell the subject ~ if this is true then (“Because” ) you should feel that or believe what the hypnotist says is true.
    6) Inference ~”I was talking to …..” This put a shift into the subconscious mind. If you don’t believe me (The Hypnotist) then believe this smart guy who said …..
    7) “Beware of…” Tell the subconscious. The hypnotist what the subject to go inside and “do this” or “Feel this”
    8) “Think” Tell the subconscious place this in your mind.

    Those type words guide the subconscious mind, into “Hypnosis without trance”

    Hi James,

    Excellent free content on this site! Much understanding of hypnosis has come together for me after watching your videos. Currently, my interest is in Stage Hypnosis and I was wondering…

    Can your method (hypnotic loops) be performed on multiple persons, such as in a stage hypnosis show or group type inductions? Just curious.

    Thanks,
    Dave

      May 14, 2012

      Hi Dave

      The short answer is ‘yes’. For me, all hypnosis relies the same thing – it is how we understand it that differs. I think the hypnotic loop model adds a little more richness and gives us more choice as hypnotists, but hypnosis is still hypnosis! I’m just interested in ways of doing it better.

      Hope that helps

      All the very best

    James,

    I am a magician/mindreader/hypnotist and a big fan of HWT. I am very interested in the different ways that magic and hypnosis can be combined. My particular favourite routine is the ‘Cerebral Steal’ by James Brown though it could argued that it is more NLP than hypnosis.

    I have performed HWT many times, and I love the reactions.

    Regarding the question of magic exposure. I cannot see any exposure in your explanation. Yes, it uses a gimmick, and if that gimmick has been exposed by the spoil-sports on YouTube then it is those idiots who are guilty of exposure and not you.

    Experienced magicians might have been tempted to take that particular gimmick a stage further. I am pleased you did not do that as there is the danger that the magician’s performance would take over and diminish the effect of the hypnosis.

    Are you planning to run any seminars or produce any material specifically aimed at magicians ?

    Best regards,
    Gordon Wardle

      Hi Sachin

      All hypnosis is essentially the same – you lead someone in a process that leads where you want them to go. Sometimes that process may be a ‘trance induction’, sometimes an amnesia sequence… whatever. The skill is in setting the frames and effectively leading them in the process.

      The weekend doesn’t require any pre-knowledge of hypnosis, as it is a different (from traditional or Ericksonian) approach to hypnosis and is, as such, explored from scratch.

      Also, when you book you will get a digital copy of the Hypnosis Mastery Programme which will give you a strong foundation before the weekend.

      I’ll look forward to meeting you if you decide you’d like to book!

    Hello!

    I’m analytical (may be too analytical). Since I analyse, I learned HWT fairly quickly, although I had to collapse anchors to do put it to practice with confidence.

    My problem with being analytical is having hard time trouble being hypnotised. When the hypnotist starts the induction or HWT process, I start saying to myself “he is using this technique or that technique” or start criticising him. I have the same problem with self hypnosis. I get physical relaxation super fast but my mind is always working.

    Can you tell/show me a way that can solve my problem?

    Thank you

    • admin

      June 18, 2012

      Hi Jupi

      My first piece of advice is to forget about being hypnotised – resolve to create an experience for yourself without having to label it as anything. The power is with you!

      Put your hand on a table and imagine it is stuck solidly and fully. locked too. DO NOT analyse whether it is rally happening or not, just imagine fully that it is. Then imagine it is happening all by itself and AS YOU CONTINUE to imagine that (The Head Hacking A.I. manoeuvre), TRY and lift your hand whilst maintaining the created experience that it is stuck and there is nothing that you can do about it.

      It’s about stepping out of analysis and fully into your imaginative and creative faculty – this will not happen all by itself (for you – for others it is just the way they’ll go). You have to choose to make it happen. Choose to create and be taken by the loop.

      As I have always said, anyone can step out of a hypnotic loop, only some don’t realise it. You do, and you can’t unknow that. So in order to have a ‘hypnotic’ experience you need to take charge of creating the loop and maintaining it. For get technique, just create it with the full power of imagination, and surrender yourself to the fantasy.

      Is this really hypnosis? Well that’s another question! IME it is. Hypnosis happens when somebody surrenders themselves to a fantasy so much so that they just let it happen. Part of that fantasy may be that it is happening all by itself and there is nothing they can do about it.

      And never underestimate the power of fantasy to alter ‘real life’!

      All the very best

    I have enjoyed following the Hypnosis without Trance blog and have referred a friend to your site, but when she began talking about the free report I realize I had never downloaded it.

    I have checked my emails from the month of April when I joined, but have not been able to locate that link. Would it be possible to resend?

    Hi james!!!
    i’ m an italian fan, and i have a question about hypnosis in general. In particular about rejection of the hypnotist. I begin studing hypnosis 2 years ago, and, as all the hypnotists, i started with an hypnosis course. When the teacher tried to hypnotise me ,I had a sort of reject to the trance and i Was angry and furious with the hypnotist.i admit that this experience Has been embarassing for me, beacause i Was the only one to react in this way to hypnosis in a group of over 30 people. This episode repet all the time anyone try to induce me in a trance state ( and that’s the reason why i got involved in hypnosis without trance)..
    i know that probably you have not enough informations to express an opinion, but even a suggestion or an experience that you have done would be a great help to explain this phenomenon.
    With many thanks, Filippo
    Ps:i’m really sorry about my english, but i’m not used to wright in english.

    Hi james!!!
    thanks for the attenction and the answer.
    However, yes, the answer is what could that response be about?some asked me if i have been ever abused when i was i child, and this question seems to me to be absurd,beacause i never find my self in any kind of these situations. Other told me that i have a problem of “selfcontrol mania”…but i was volunteer to try hypnosis, i ‘m too much Interested in hypnosis to obstruct the process in any way.. I can’t understand and while i’m able to hypnotize my friends and my family, i have any possibility to feel this beatufl sensation. In auto hypnosis i can induce some cataleptic process, but when other people try to do that i start contracting mandibole muscles and after that, with the proceeding of the induction, i get always more and more angry without any apparent reason, stopping all the attept of induction.

    Filippo,

    Yes, Sometimes it is hard to let other induce you into hypnosis. But can we agree that you might be able to be hypnotized….. We can both understand that because hypnosis works best on people who think at a higher level like us,,,,, can you use your thoughts to slow down or swith off your mind.,,,When you are ready,,, remember or picture how your subject took a breath in their nose,,, and,,, slowly held it for a few second…. just do that now…. you can let that air out your open mouth. You can believe that action might in some level,, inside you mind you might discover a flow of relaxing waveS. Good,,, that is a normal feeling in your body to all people. At this time,,, just do that a few times. a breath in your nose,,, and,,, slowly held it for a few second then you can let that air out your open mouth. You can believe that action might in a level inside your mind you might discover a flow of relaxing waves. That’s Right,,, that is normal to all people. At this time just loop that a few times. a breath in your nose,,, and,,, slowly held it for a few second then you can let that air out your open mouth. You can believe that action might in a level inside you mind you can discover time slows down,,,, a flow of relaxing waves. Alter your state. …At this time just do that a few times. a breath in your nose,,, and,,, slowly held it for a few second then you can let that air out your open mouth. You can believe that action will drift into level inside you mind… you might discover a limp doll state. When you discover in your mind,,,, that you can be hypnotized or your unconscious,… loop your thoughts back and read until you are unconscious processing starts telling your hypnotized state to read more. Loop back until your unconscious,… loop your thoughts back and read until you are unconscious processing tells your hypnotized state is installed and ready to use.
    Could you take a moment,,,, remember a time you felted good relaxed ready to follow your mind into a light trance. Its time we move into a new way of thinking,,,,,Think of a time you had first had novacane in your mouth. PICTURE that time,,,,,. Notic your tongue in your mouth,,,, how it feels,,,Take 10 seconds and let that novacane move inside your mouth,,,, notic your mouth watering as the novacane takes over YOUR unconscious ,,,,,mind lets your tongue feel bigger or numb. Wait,,, Wait ,,,,, for the NOVACANE takes over,,,,,When your numb tongue is ready touch it and prove to yourself it has happend.

    Slowly your tongue and everything will come back to normal,,,If someone reads this to you. Your tongue will feel numb,, But remember Novacane only last for a short time, and your wake state will awake you to your normal state and everything will be normal.

    I can only imagine how much time it takes to you to wright this induction and i think you can’t imagine how much grateful i am towards you…trust me,i really appreciate this care about my problem from you.
    ok, after the aknowlegements, i think you would appreciate to know that i really felt my tongue numb! And i obtein this effect just reading the comment! I Will obviously try with a friend of mine reading this to me, but i’m already happy about this effect! And i’m really grateful to you. I never had (in my memory)novocaine in my mouth, but i’m a toxicologist and maybe this helped me in imagining the effect.
    Thanks again james,

    Hi James,
    I came across your website by accident yesterday and spent much longer that I should have (:-)) yesterday and today, in the members area watching lots of your (very generous) free resources. I am blown away by what you do and desperately want to learn it.
    I live in Hertfordshire and I am very keen to come along to your April Hypnosis skills boot camp in Letchworth. But I am also very keen to start learning it NOW so would like to buy the Hypnosis mastery CD programme.
    My problem is, as a newly qualified hypnotherapist (qualified in Sep 12, working since Jan 13) I’m trying to limit my training spend at the moment, so I wondered which would you recommend would be more suitable at this time, knowing I’m newly qualified – the live training or the home study.
    Thank you

      Hi Gaynor

      Firstly, I had to make the decision today to reschedule the Hypnosis Skills Bootcamp, and haven’t selected a new date yet!

      My recommendation would be to get the Hypnosis Mastery Programme now and start learning. If you then decide you would like to do the Bootcamp, let me know and I’ll deduct the price of the Hypnosis Mastery Programme from the price.

      Hope that helps!

      All the very best

    James first of all I’d like to say thank you for sharing your knowledge. I’m very very interesting in learning more about it for me and to be able to help people. I’d love to go to your training but I’m in the US. Do you have any recommendation on how I can start? I started watching the videos, but I’d like to take a course. I’m also into fitness and would love to apply it in that field. Hope to hear from you soon

      Thanks Eric

      I really don’t know much about the hypnosis training scene in the US, so unfortunately can’t recommend anyone over there to train with.

      If you are interested in the HWT approach, my best recommendation is that you get the Hypnosis Mastery Programme, go through the material and start practising (that’s the key element!)

      I would also recommend having a look at the ‘tips on learning’ in the members area here on the site.

      Hope that helps

      All the very best

    Hi
    James. Just got done with your RIR course. Love it man!! All of your material is top notch and has made some things work much better for me in my shows. I thought you may be interested in this so I did want to mention (b/c I heard you touch upon this very briefly in your RIR course) about the hypno sculpture. I can say from experience of using the very method Win uses that there is no post trigger or pre-show. Now mind you it WONT work all of the time on everyone. But it does work. The person also wont remain that way for very long as well (my cropping on that is usually around 2 min tops) There are many things at work besides the shock (one being the scent of rose water on your wrist). Its akin to if you are walking down the stairs, miss a step and someone tells you “its ok just stand there and relax you didnt fall” and the fact that they also THINK something unusual or entertaining is going on because of what you are doing and saying and they are waiting internally for something to happen WHILE they are standing. I suppose that could work as a frame (although a very indirect one).
    So all in all while there is alot more that an induction ritual going on there is no overt framing, pre-show and post hypnotic triggers

    thanks again for your wounderful material James keep it comming.

      March 10, 2013

      Hi Gavin

      Thanks for the feedback. It is my experience also that you can get transitory stuff to work without overt pre-framing on some people (although I probably haven’t done so nearly as much as you and certainly nothing like 2 minutes duration without maintenance – I think I alluded to this fleetingly in Rapid Induction Rituals, possibly when talking about handshake interrupts). My theory is still that when this happens, framing is still as much at play (I was talking about this on the recent Hypno-Trick and Mentalism training) although it is indirect. Working a little something like this…

      Pattern interrupt ‘rips away’ current framing for the moment, creating a frame free moment (no frame = no sense of what is happening = confusion). The mind of the subject flounders and grasps to make sense, and concludes that they are being influenced/controlled by some unknown force (maybe even they frame that they are being hypnotised based upon their cultural understanding of hypnosis). That frame takes care of the ‘belief’ element of the hypnotic loop and hey presto… hypnosis is happening.

      The flip-side is that, when the mind of the subject grasps for meaning, following the pattern interrupt, they could just as easily conclude differently. E.g. ‘I am being assaulted’. ‘This guy is a weirdo’ or whatever. These frames, of course, are not going to support the generation of interesting hypnotic phenomena.

      Anyhows, it’s an interesting area, and I have never really been motivated to explore it too deeply (although I do have a fondness for going for spontaneous ‘induction’ free name amnesias, which I have a pretty good success rate 🙂 )

      All the very best

      James

  • Gavin Soccorso

    March 10, 2013

    Yes I have to agree that makes sense. I have done this many times without what most would call a “hypnotic contract” or “overt framing” but yes I think your theory is valid. That a frame or even a hypnotic contract needent be ” have you heard of hypnosis” or “would you care to be hypnotised?” to be a framing of the situation
    I take it from your vids that you were a working mentalist? If so you will understand the popular foundations in suggestive mentalism made popular by Luke Jermay and Kenton Knepper ( definition is equal to creation and by acting as if it is so yourself so will the person taking part) I think perhaps this also plays a part in the hypno-sculpture as I use it.

    Best

      March 10, 2013

      Yes I did work as a Mentalist for a time, and am very familiar with Knepper and Jermay. In fact, Kenton Knepper’s Wonder Words was one of my very first introductions to ‘hypnosis’ (via ‘hypnotic language). Great stuff!

My first question is will you sell a recording of your hypnosis mind tricks also I want to work on my confidence with my convincers and was wondering what do you recommend from what you offer? Also you offer a deal with the three programs you offer, would you include your rapid inductions in a special also.

    Just came across an article that you may find of interest here:

    http://www.news.iastate.edu/news/2013/06/04/memoryrecall

    Don’t know if it’s appropriate to past the whole article here or not(?) so I will just put the title here and the first part. Tks.

    Mental block: Iowa State professor discovers way to alter memory
    Posted Jun 4, 2013 10:30 am

    Jason Chan (right) and Jessica LaPaglia (left) use video clips to test memory recall in the lab. Photo by Bob Elbert (Larger photo)
    AMES, Iowa – A series of studies conducted by an Iowa State University research team shows that it is possible to manipulate an existing memory simply by suggesting new or different information. The key is timing and recall of that memory, said Jason Chan, an assistant professor of psychology at Iowa State.

    “If you reactivate a memory by retrieving it, that memory becomes susceptible to changes again. And if at that time you give people new contradictory information, that can make the original memory much harder to retrieve later,” Chan said.

    One of the major findings from the studies, published in the latest issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, is the impact on declarative memory – a memory that can be consciously recalled and verbally described, such as what you did last weekend. The effects are powerful because people are retrieving memory and then incorporating new information. Chan and Jessica LaPaglia, a graduate student at Iowa State, tested the impact of new information when presented at different time intervals after the retrieval of the original memory.

    This all I’m interested in doing and if your programme can do this , I’ll order a copy.

      Hi Rudolph

      From my perspective ALL hypnosis is ‘without trance’. HWT is just about becoming a good hypnotist via having a better understanding of what is going on from a process perspective, and having a better orientation to the real-time unfolding of events AS the hypnosis is happening.

      The HWT approach is simply one of focussing on SKILLS and UNDERSTANDINGS rather than TECHNIQUES!

      So, the HWT material will share little by way of techniques for any of the things you mention… but if you are interested in developing your skills and understandings generally as a Hypnotist, it is all great material.

      My instinct here is, given your very personal and specific motivation, the HWT programmes are probably not the right thing for you at the moment.

      All the very best

      James

      P.S. If you were to get any of the HWT stuff, Changework Applications would probably be the closest thing to a good fit for you (though this doesn’t teach you how to do hypnosis, only some ways that you can apply it).
