We are excited to facilitate a 2-day introduction into relational hypnosis as a therapeutic tool for self and others. We will lead you on an experiential journey to explore how hypnosis and trance can reconnect you to yourself, others, and possibilities for change.
We both practice a slightly different flavor of hypnosis, yet find it to be profoundly impactful in both our clinical work and personal lives.

Overview of trance phenomena
Experiential invitations for group trance
Frequent one-on-one practice of inviting trance
