What Is Hypnosis?


This book debunks the myths of hypnosis and makes plain and simple the power we have to change how we think, feel and behave by looking at how we use our mind and the permission (or not) we give to others to influence us. After an insightful introduction about why the subject of Hypnosis is so worth exploring and the many benefits it can bring, each main chapter then addresses a key question: Where did hypnosis come from and how has it developed over time? How does hypnosis really work? Are there different types of hypnosis? How can it change my life? What are the most powerful techniques? How can I bring hypnosis into my daily life? And, finally, what are the wider social benefits of hypnosis and how can it change the consciousness of the world?

As such, this book brings readers on an exploratory journey through the world of hypnosis, uncovering its immense therapeutic power, and showing readers how to tap into this power for the purposes of personal transformation, so that we can all lead more authentic, connected, contented lives.

I first saw this author online discussing the many benefits of hypnosis. He impresses me as a person of erudite knowledge and he presents himself very well. His book is equally impressive. It is a smaller sized book, but don’t let looks deceive you. It has everything you need to know, and it’s expressed in a very easy to understand manner.
