This is for everyone who is interested in hypnosis. The purpose of the meetup to provide a safe place where members may practice hypnotic techniques on each other. Only non-therapeutic hypnosis is allowed during the meetup. Both professional hypnotists and amatuer hypnotists are welcome, as are people with no experience who want to see what hypnosis is. There are a variety of handouts with hypnosis inductions available for people who are not experienced in hypnotizing other people. Anyone may take the role of hypnotist, regardless of their training (or lack of training), but no one is required to do so.
IMPORTANT: The one requirement is that you are willing to be hypnotised by other people attending the meetup.
This meetup is not affiliated with any particular trainer or type of hypnosis, all are welcome.

Dan will be giving the demonstration this month.
The meetup will follow the monthly meetup's typical structure (see below).
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 demonstration of a specific hypnotic technique, then time for everyone to practice that technique or another hypnotic technique of your own choosing.
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.
