Hypnosis can interrupt dysfunctional loops, breaking negative patterns. With the skillful addition of sound that process is often speeded up and has a profound effect physiologically as well as psychologically, influencing and entraining the biological state of the subject. Participants will be shown how to enhance their awareness of tonality, volume, and the power inherent in vowel sounds. Using frequencies to deepen trance will be part of the group experience.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the changes they experience when specific sounds are added to hypnosis.
  2. Distinguish the different levels of sound and the effect they have.
  3. Discuss their personal experience of the sounds used in the workshop.
  4. Identify instruments which can be used as an adjunct to hypnotherapy.
