Herbalism can play a big role in helping the body prevent illness and cope with various types of disease. Hypnotherapy techniques can help you understand root issues, and help untangle the conscious and subconscious beliefs we hold that keep us stuck.

Sunday, July 31st

9am - 4pm

Ericksonian Certification Course
Cost: $89 for full day workshop


The greatest benefits hypnotherapists will take away from this workshop are a more thorough understanding of our interactions with clients. Students will learn Ericksonian methodologies such as reframing, indirect suggestion, language patterns, deepening techniques, conflict negotiation, open-eyed trances, metaphor construction, effective pattern interrupts, and more. Students will learn to enhance the effectiveness of hypnotic induction, pick up new deepening techniques, and improve their client interview skills. Study the art of communication skills of "great communicators" such as Tony Robins, Ronald Reagan, and even Jesus. Comprehend the inner working of communication. Discover how this assists our purposes in the areas of connectedness/ rapport, healing, public speaking, interpersonal relationships, business negotiation, values alignments, and more. The greater understandings of how we interrelate can lead to one being more effective within their purpose, so that ecological self-alignment and attunement to others is more natural. Professional Hypnotherapists only. Recommended Reading: The Teaching Tales of Milton Erickson. ($35 NATH certification fee due end of class, July 31st)
