What we're about

Welcome to the SF Hypnosis & NLP Practice Group for novices to experienced hypnotists, and for people who are just downright curious about hypnosis.

This is a hands-on group, providing an opportunity to practice hypnosis inductions and produces hypnotic phenomena. So you get competent very quickly. You will alternate between being the hypnotist and being the subject during each practice session, unless you want to be only a subject.

Currently the emphasis will be on the non-therapeutic aspects of hypnosis. Self Hypnosis, rapid inductions, instant inductions, convincers, tests for somnambulism, classic hypnotic phenomena, impromptu hypnosis, street hypnosis, NLP

The goal of this group is to increase knowledge and familiarity with our minds, develop tools that allow for more options, choices, and personal power, and to create personal change, growth, healing, recreation, and unique memorable experiences, utilizing hypnosis & NLP skills and knowledge.

Typical structure of SF Free Hypnosis Practice Group: The meetup will start with everyone introducing themselves. Please, keep introductions short. Generally speaking, the meet up will have either a live or video demonstration of a specific hypnotic technique, then time for everyone to practice that technique.

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.

As Milton Erickson father of modern hypnosis used to say "if you fall on your face, at least you're going in the right direction."

Nervous of Choosing a Niche? Let's Play a Game!

The San Francisco Public Library

$5.00

Nervous of Choosing a Niche? Let's Play a Game! Though aimed at hypnotists and business owners, this class is for anyone who wants to make tough decisions more easily and more quickly. Are you a hypnotist who wants to choose a niche? Instead of feeling nervous or confused, what if you felt excited to choose? You can feel excited by playing a game. And with excitement, create an inner fire. Then choosing a niche is what you desire. Let's find you a niche by having fun... playing a game we'll run. What will we cover as we play the game? Keep reading… 1. What are the benefits of choosing a niche? - This includes one benefit that's rarely talked about, but for some, it's a big one. 2. What blocks us from choosing a niche? (And what blocks us from making tough decisions in general?) - Ex. "If I choose a niche, I'll feel boxed in." - Ex. "I want to work with many types of people, not just one type. I like variety." - And if you're not a hypnotist, you'll work on your own blocks that prevent you from making a tough decision. 3. How do we resolve these blocks that feel so strong? - Rather than struggle, let’s play a game! - Playing and having fun can disrupt our current neural networks. - Neural networks are the blocks. They prevent us from moving forward. - Fortunately, we can weaken and get rid of these structures. - How? Increase dopamine production and associate pleasure with the desired outcome. - How do we associate pleasure with our goal? - We have fun! Fun is the key, so playing. More fun = more change. 4. Once the blocks are resolved, let's choose a niche! (Or for non-hypnotists, you'll make your life decision.) - This is so much easier once the blocks are gone. - By the way, I can't promise that every single person will choose a niche or make a tough decision in the span of one quick hypnosis class. - But for those that don't, you'll be way ahead of where you were. - And for those that do choose, congrats! In a way, you might say, we're really using neuroscience this day. And I don't rhyme, at least not all the time. Within two hours, you'll have increased your powers... of making a choice. And using your voice. About the instructor William Song has a private hypnotherapy practice in San Francisco, California. He helps people with habits and chronic health issues. He’s the author of the book, "Healing and Hypnosis." And he loves using random stories, laughter, and confusion to create change.
