! Hypnotherapy 101: !

Introduction To Hypnotherapy 

SATURDAY, aug 26th, 2023






These workshops will never be 

one of those painfully boring “lectures”

from one of those painfully boring people, 

where you are ready to go as soon as it starts!


However, you should consider attending only

 if you are open to laughing,

 pondering new possibilities and perspectives,

 and experiencing what it means to 

“stop and smell the roses” 

as you pause life with your peers

 and allow us to pour into your

Mind, Body, & Spirit!


Combining Conversational and Covert Hypnosis,

 NLP, & High Emotional Intelligence, 

Dr. Kawakami creates amazingly enjoyable 

learning experiences that will have you asking for more,

more than before,

 even nowww!

consider this:

When the overpriced car is parked, 

the blinging jewelry is on the dresser, 

the name brand clothes are in the hamper, 

and you’re in bed with a quieted Mind;

 …the subconscious Mind always reveals!­™

In this Introductory Level one-day workshop, you’ll learn very quickly

 that your outcomes aren’t linked to client motivation or resistance; 

    au contraire, you’ll quickly experience how outcomes are

directly linked to your skillset. 


Yes, your confidence and your competence – the energy of your aura –

 will consistently determine the outcome for those who are ready for

 change and seek your help!


There will be an important foundation established via a review of

 history, concepts, definitions, misconceptions of hypnotherapy, ethical

 use, and how language (words) and imagery (pictures, symbols)

  powerfully influence the emotional brain.


Your workshop will be both didactic and experiential, with an 

emphasis on laying the foundation every clinician needs and

that “talk-therapy” training is unable to provide — how to engage the

 emotional brain to bypass the critical Mind and quickly resolve issues.


You’ll have a keen understanding of how traditional “talk-therapy”

 chases symptoms (the smoke) via the stairs instead of addressing the

 origins of the issue (the fire) via the elevator (hypnotherapy).


Most importantly, you’ll leave the workshop full of positive energy, 

a renewed purpose and passion for helping others, and knowing 

that nobody in their right Mind takes the stairs to the 10th floor 

when they know there is an elevator!
