A well-known self-hypnosis technique will be taught in a way that it is at the same time a first trance induction for a client. There will be one demonstration client but at the same the whole group can learn the approach too. This includes an old oriental story of the lion who saw his face in the water. At the end it will be discussed how this approach can be tailored for individual clients and modified for many goals: treating chronic pain, phobias, sleeping disorders, etc.
