Trance-formation: Deepening Your Intimate Experience Using Intentional Imagination and Guided Suggestions - This is an introductory seminar for learning how you and your partner (or you alone) can use intentional imagination and guided suggestions—otherwise referred to as erotic hypnosis—to deepen your intimate experiences. It is not a course in hypnotherapy (using hypnosis in a therapeutic setting) and is not about “mind control” or “manipulation.” It is a course designed for partners (but will provide interesting and useful information to individual participants as well) who wish to expand their erotic toolbox by adding a technique designed to increase intimate connection and satisfaction. We will discuss the mechanics of intentional imagination and guided suggestions, and we will explore how they can be used to heighten the awareness of the physical body, erotic feelings, and connection with a trusted partner (or self). Participants will receive not only new information, but also new ideas and basic start-to-finish instructions and scripts for experimenting with intentional imagination and guided suggestions at home.
