I just wanted to take a minute and shoot out an introduction. Pete Hummon has formally made me the organizer of the group as of August 1st and I am excited to be organizing these meet ups.
A little about myself, I was recently certified by the NGH and I am in the process of opening a practice. I love hypnosis and everything to do with it and am even looking at pursuing a degree in psychology, with a concentration in cognitive science.
All that being said I wanted to bring some ideas to the table and gain some of the groups feedback.
The first thing I want to say, is that I will only be organizing one meet up per month. This will usually entail hypnotic phenomena demonstration, including but not limited to:
? rapid and instant inductions (Everyone always wants to see if they are real...they are!)
? past life regressions
? phobia removal
? pain control
? stage hypnosis
? and more!
Secondly, anyone interested at all at being an assistant organizer, presenting and holding a meet up outside of the scope of what I can schedule is always welcome to. Any hypnotist is welcome to present as well. Should you choose to be an assistant organizer or if you want to schedule your own meet up without becoming an organizer, that is ok too. Please let me know any and all ideas.
Thirdly, Pete and I discussed this, and at his request and my agreement, I am changing the name of the group. There are several reasons for this. That being said, I want it to be something that reflects everyone in the group's idea of what a group should be and not just mine. Translation: Give me ideas! What do you want your group to be called?
Lastly, all future meet ups that I am organizing will be held at private rental spaces. Acting studios, class rooms, all held in private locations with no donations required. The only thing I ask is that you attend if you can. The meet ups will usually be no more than an hour or two depending on what we are doing. If I pay for it, please come.
On a final note, those of you that are truly interested in becoming a hypnotist and are serious about the matter should contact me. I will be organizing another group (not a meet up group) for the purpose of practicing hypnosis. More information on that will be provided in the future.
Please contact me at your leisure should you have any questions, concerns, ideas or just want to say hello.
