Most classes will have a combination of at least two of three elements.
Subjects 102 sleepingirl, MsMesmerBeginner +How to ask for trance, and get ideas from other sublects. Talk about your experiences in trance, and ask questions of experienced Subjects about things you might want to try. Just an all around great time to talk and learn from each other.
Memory PlayDrHeadcrashIntermediate to advancedOne hour minimum, 90 minutes is bestMemory play is hot. It's also a surprisingly broad topic, ranging from the creation of temporary amnesia states and false memory to changing the emotional resonance of existing memories, to creating altered experiences of identity and self. Come to this demonstration-oriented class led by Dr HeadCrash, who just may have gotten a Ph.D. in something highly relevant to this topic a decade ago - as far as anyone can remember. =) Memory play is an advanced topic, but we will have awesome demos and exercises suitable for beginners as well as more advanced students. You will definitely learn something and have a great time, whether or not you remember attending. ;)
Zero Induction HypnosisDrHeadcrashIntermediate to advancedone hourGood hypnotists know the importance of the pretalk to set up induction and trance. Great hypnotists know that Induction and trance are optional. learn how to get powerful suggestion effects without obvious induction and without deep trance states.
Putting the subject first: hypnosis from the subject's perspectiveDrHeadcrash & unindicted co-conspiratorbeginnerone hourLearn to be a better subjecct and hypnotist by exploring hypnosis from the subject's perspective. Too often hypnosis is described and taught as something that the hypnotist does, rather than something the subject experiences and actively participates in. In this class we turn this around and teach a model of hypnosis that centers on the subject, or hypnotee, Being a hypnotic subject is an active, not passive, role and a skill that can be learned and taught.
Hyperempiria and other altered statesFelix KrullIntermediate1 hourHyperempiria and other lesser-known trance states. In the West, the popular picture of the hypnotized subject is as someone deeply relaxed, probably slumped in a chair, in a state resembling sleep. Even the term for a deep hypnotic state -- somnambulism -- means, roughly, "sleepwalking." But trance does not require relaxation; in fact it can be a highly energetic, aware, and focused state as well. In this session, we discuss, teach, and demonstrate hyperempiria, and time permitting a few other lesser-known states as well.
Anchoring and conditioningFelix KrullIntermediate1 hourThe unconscious mind is associative. It learns and reasons by identifying things that happen together in time, without concern for notions of cause and effect.  It is also home to habitual and conditioned responses, automatic behaviors and feelings that arise without conscious awareness or intervention.  Positive conditioning is the process of associating of a positive experience with a desired behavior, in order to encourage more of that behavior.  Hypnosis is a powerful tool for conditioning, enabling the creation or modification of behaviors in a much shorter time than would otherwise be possible. Anchoring is the process of associating a particular stimulus with an experience or state. Often an anchor is used in conditioning.  For example, physical pleasure can be anchored to a particular word or gesture, and the anchor "fired" to reward the subject for a desired behavior. Anchors can also be used therapeutically or in coaching, to eliminate or reduce unwanted states. In this class, Felix will show how to set and fire anchors, and how to use them in the conditioning process. He will also provide an extended demonstration of pleasure conditioning with some lucky volunteer. There will be opportunities to practice and receive coaching on anchoring.

Conversational Hypnosis Felix KrullIntermediate1 hourUntil the second quarter of the twentieth century, hypnosis techniques were authoritarian and directive, emphasizing the power of the hypnotist and the relatively passive role of the subject. Then a number of hypnotists, the best known of whom was probably Milton Erickson, began to develop a different model, one that emphasized the active role of the subject in the process. They also developed techniques for inducing trance and making suggestions that were fluid, creative, and conversational, and included things like storytelling and metaphor. The conversational hypnotist utilizes what the subject brings to the session in a way that is unique for each subject, and each time and place, and the results can be extraordinary for both parties.cannot co-lead this class
Multiples Felix Krull/Miss Isis IntermediateHave you ever fantasized about having a threesome? Howabout a foursome, or a fivesome? We're talking about hypnosis, of course. Instead of just hypnotizing one person, how about two, or three, or more? Stage Hypnotists do it all the time, and so can you! In this class, Miss Isis and Felix will show how to work with multiple subjects.  We will explain why sometimes having two or more subjects is even easier than working with one alone, and show fun and interesting things you can do with couples and groups.
