Divine Feminine School of Hypnosis 3 hour Intro Course:
The Divine Feminine School of Hypnosis intro training is an introduction of the
history, myths, science and ethical issues related to the practice of hypnosis. It offers a unique perspective of Hypnosis as both an ancient healing modality and a progressive practical tool for personal development and change.
Students will learn the basic way to induce hypnosis and how to utilize trance to make fast and generative changes in themselves and their clients. Through a blend of Ericksonian, Integrative and classical hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Psychology and Practical Neuroscience, students will gain an updated yet thorough experience of learning hypnosis. There is a strong focus on teaching clients to ‘update their operating system’ or stuck/ habituated patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior by using their imagination as a healing tool to create new pathways of association changing early conditioning and creating a more collaborative relationship with their mind, body and spirit.
