The Greek philosopher Pythagoras was among the first to recognize the healing powers of music. Milton Erickson, the musician of mind, body and soul, was the first to structure communication for greatest effect so that clients could change many aspects of their life, not merely their presenting symptoms. Just as the cadence of voice and patterns of speech form the music of Ericksonian communication, repetition and rhythm create the emergence of a trance state in music, film, and in poetry. The utilization of art and creativity in a hypnotherapy model functions as a catalyst accentuating the nuances of core competencies such as tailoring, utilization, strategic approach, and destabilization. Elegantly gift-wrapped in landscapes of music, poetry, and film, participants will playfully learn how to cultivate a mutual process of discovery.
The format of the presentation will be didactic and experiential. Steeped in rhythmic components participants will explore how to invite dissonance and harmony and will experience how to awaken a natural process of growth to evoke curiosity and openness to new challenges and possibilities while fostering an innate capacity for healing and learning.
