This month Don will demonstrate several ways to use "deepeners." Deepeners are phrases and other techniques used to strengthen and stabilize the hypnotic state. Deepeners are typically used in both the initial hypnotic induction and throughout a hypnosis session.
Here is the link to a handout with examples of deepeners which is already in the Files section of this meetup group. The handout also has some examples of "Convincers" which are related to deepeners.
See the list of all the files here: http://www.meetup.com/ATXHPG/files/
Typical structure of AXTHPG's Monthly Hypnosis Practice meetup:
The meetup will start with everyone introducing themselves. Please, keep your introductions short.
Generally speaking, the meetup will have either a live or video demonstration of a specific hypnotic technique, then time for everyone to practice that technique or another short hypnotic technique of your own choosing. A break. Then an open practice time for attendees to practice whatever hypnotic techniques they want, which may be longer hypnosis sessions.
As part of each practice, both the hypnotist and subject will discuss their experiences with each other.
Time allowing, there will be a discussion at the end of the meetup where attendees' experiences can be shared with the entire group.
You may video or take photos, if the people who are going to be in the video or photo give their permission before hand. No flash while people are being hypnotized in the area, whether they are in the photo or not.
There is no charge for this meetup.
Genuine Joe's doesn't charge for the use of their meeting room, but they do expect we buy some drinks or food, so please do so. And tip generously.
