According to quantum physics, what we see "out there" is a Virtual Reality that we're creating with our brains every minute. And if so, we can alter it with our minds. As hypnotherapists, we have been intuiting and using that mutability from the beginnings of human imagination. Now, because of brilliant research by physicists, biologists, and neuroscientists, we have explanations of what is really happening. How can we use our minds, beyond our brains, to shift our experience and envision a new way of being?
Dr. Prager will take us through a profound understanding of the nature of consciousness as primary. She will illuminate what is being discovered by neuroscientists about what parts of the brain are involved in compassion, in connection, in empathy, in love, and how those emotions affect our well being. And then she will show us how, as hypnotherapists, our interactions with consciousness and the superconscious can shift the paradigm.

The most common cause of all diseases in the world today is autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are currently ranked as the third biggest disease category in the US behind heart disease and cancer. Auto-immune diseases result when our natural protective mechanisms either go on strike or become confused and disoriented. Hypnotherapy can not only ease the burden of symptom management but, in many cases, it can eliminate the disease markers from the body. Learn what common illnesses are immune based and how to use the unconscious mind to re-educate the body to function normally again.
Thurs., May 2, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm $150.00

Many of us came into our hypnotherapy practices with other talents and skills in the art of helping others. This presentation will offer an opinion on what may be gained by utilizing other techniques in addition to hypnosis /hypnotherapy and then suggest some of the ways this may be done and has been done in this presenter's experience. Gaye has been in private hypnotherapy practice since 1996. As early as 1997 she began to integrate other techniques into her practice to enhance the effects of hypnotherapy and to have at hand a variety of approaches to better meet the needs of each individual client. These other modalities remain an integral part of Gaye's hypnotherapy practice to this day. If you are curious about how you might apply other techniques in your hypnotherapy office, this presentation can provide you with ideas you may easily and readily apply to your own practice.
Thurs., May 2, 2:45 pm to 6:00 pm $75.00
Clients are often confused by their symptoms, whether psychosomatic or emotional. Their inability to understand themselves is distressing in itself, as they wonder if they will ever get "back to normal" again or achieve their goals in life. Hypnosis gives the client the additional necessary power to understand the connections which have led them to their problems, and to replace these with new connections for better results. Taking clients through this process thoroughly demands intense attention, engagement and skill from the hypnotherapist - each inner journey for each client is unique and need to be in-depth for results that are truly powerful and long-lasting. Dr. John Butler has been practicing hypnotherapy for over 30 years and has made advanced analytical hypnotherapy the core of his practice. If you are already practicing analytical hypnotherapy and would like to increase your skills in this area and maximize your practice, or you wish to start using it to expand your range with clients, this workshop is for you.
