Mind, Body & Nature

Self-Hypnosis for Relaxation & Setting Goals

Hypnosis is a powerful tool that allows one to tap into the strength of the unconscious mind. Students will learn the history of hypnosis, what the current research indicates, how to use self hypnosis, and most importantly, how to hypnotize. Students will experience hypnosis in each and every class.

Hypnotist Jim Kellner teaches this fun and enriching class. He is a graduate of Hypnosis & NLP Dynamics and the Positive Changes Hypnosis Training Program. Over 20 years ago Jim took a class just like this and has studied and practiced hypnosis since then. He personally used hypnosis 5 years ago to remake his life in nearly every way imaginable - losing 75 lbs, becoming a full time hypnotherapist, and a comedy stage hypnotist. His enthusiasm for the subject will inspire and motivate you to tap into the innate and untapped potential of your mind.
