Testimonial for the Divine Feminine School of Hypnosis
Shauna’s course in Hypnotherapy far exceeded my expectations, in every way. Hypnosis is widely misunderstood in our modern, fear-driven, pharmaceutical-dependent culture, yet it’s power and presence in our daily lives is inescapable. Shauna is on the front line of a radical shift in our understanding of the function and use of these powerful, hypnotic states of consciousness that pervade our existence yet frequently go unarticulated and underutilized in our culture. Hypnotherapy is concerned, fundamentally, with building confidence and agency through increased awareness of one’s habits of perception, and one’s natural ability to create perceptual and behavioral changes conducive to leading a more fulfilling life. As a research psychologist immersed in the pursuit of a doctoral degree, when I started Shauna’s hypnotherapy certification course I had been firmly entrenched in a skeptical, materialistic perspective that sought-out theoretical weakness, yet I found no weakness in the course or the content. Instead, I found Hypnosis to be at the cross-cultural core of how we understand and utilize the mind. Through the completion of Shauna’s course, I found a new sense of coherence in my understanding of Psychology, and a greater sense of confidence in the face of any challenge I meet. If you’re interested in improving your healing practice or cultivating a deeper sense of how to function as a positive, productive and engaged citizen —without hesitation— I recommend taking Shauna’s course in Hypnosis.
