All of us are endowed with an innate ability to renew and heal ourselves in mind, body,
and spirit. We can gain access to our inner healing resources by entering a concentrated state of being called "trance."
Our inner resources include both wisdom about what is needed and the power to effect
change. Trance states help us tap that wisdom.
Trance state also provide access to hidden regions of the inner mind that some-times hold secrets that need to be revealed in order for emotional healing to occur. Therapeutic trances are a powerful means of carrying out this delicate therapeutic work.
For these reasons, trance states are tremendous tools for maximizing psychotherapy or counselling techniques. Although these altered states of consciousness have always been part of human experience, it is only in the past two hundred years that we have found ways to develop workable trances in controlled therapeutic situations. Surprisingly, even though trances can now be regularly employed for therapeutic or healing purposes, it seems that few therapists or counsellors make extensive use of them.
This thirty-hour seminar is designed to give practitioners the practical knowledge needed to induce trance states and use them to the greatest advantage with their clients. It is based on the belief that trances occur commonly in our lives and that therapeutic trances are not magical or mystical states, but powerful naturally-based aids for freeing the potentials of those who seek our aid.
This seminar is offered each year in the fall and occasionally in the spring.
My book Trance Zero: The Psychology of Maximum Experience is companion reading for the seminar.
