I'm Still Posting

I'm not really going crazy, but the studying has been intense. (And I like the above image by Sam Brown.) You may have noticed lately the infrequency of posts to this blog.

I'm still in Santa Fe. Still attending the Hypnotherapy Academy of America.

My typical weekday is attending class from 9-7, with before and after hours that sometimes stretch the day from 6 AM- 11 PM.

Weekends are devoted to reading, study, review, practice and documentation for full certification. I will be testing (a written and a practical) this Friday to earn official certification as a hypnotherapist. Then, with some more work, class time, etc., I will be able to add "clinical" to that title.

In class, we continue to see powerful demonstrations. Equally as interesting is our own work with clients (both student and non-student). What a gift to be able to participate in people's breakthroughs and achievements of their goals! My own personal breakthroughs (from sessions with me as the client) have alone been worth the time and energy.

I'm moving ahead simultaneously with the work needed to establish my own practice. This involves getting an office, beginning to schedule clients, hiring an accountant, etc. My wish list is available upon request!!

Thanks to everyone who has sent mail to me c/o of the school during this time. Your encouragement has been great and I really appreciate it.

Sleep Deep.

As of yesterday, I'm a hypnotist. Next level master hypnotist. Then hypnotherapist and clinical hypnotherapist. I will test and certify for the master level and final level.

In the meantime, I am practicing with classmates and have been hypnotized over a dozen times in the last two weeks and am hypnotizing others as well. It is really cool!

Off to go read (lots of that these days) and I have to document three inductions before Monday.
