New classes for Fall 2017

Transforming Stress with Hypnosis   Thursday October 12, 2017 at 6:30
We have all heard that stress can damage our health and wellbeing—and we are living in stressful times, whether we are simply reacting to the news (terrorist acts, environmental disasters, fears of economic collapse . . .) or if we have personal stressors to deal with on a daily basis. Is it any wonder that so many of us feel overwhelmed?  The good news is that we can learn how to transform our response to stress and reclaim our positive, healthful energy. In this class, we’ll use hypnosis to reduce the impacts of stress and increase our ability to relax, restore, and renew. $20 fee for hypnosis recording payable to instructor at first class; bring a pillow and mat/blanket to aid relaxation for in-class hypnosis sessions.

Hypnosis for Pain Relief   Thursday October 26 at 6:30
Hypnosis is an effective tool for reducing pain intensity. It’s also been shown to improve activity levels, mood, and sleep for people with chronic pain–as or more effective than medication or physical therapy, according to Dr. Mark Jenkins of the UW Medical Center. And its only side effect is relaxation! This workshop will teach all the skills needed to use hypnosis to reduce pain, cope with its effects on daily life, and relax and sleep well. $20 fee for hypnosis recording payable to instructor at first class; bring a pillow and mat/blanket to aid relaxation for in-class hypnosis sessions.

And our usual offerings for growth and change:

The Power of Self Hypnosis for Positive Change  Tuesday October 3, 6:30 – 8:30
This one-session class packs a punch.  Self hypnosis is effective in treating chronic pain, anxiety, and sleep disruption.  It’s also a tried and true method for creating new healthy habits.  You’ll leave this class with all the tools you need to develop your own self hypnosis practice.

Weight Control with Hypnosis Level I    Tuesdays, October 10 to  24, from 6:30 – 8:30
This 3-session class uses hypnosis to reprogram your mind and body for long-term positive changes, helping you establish new healthy habits and let go of old habits that no longer serve your good health and wellbeing.

Weight Control with Hypnosis Level II  Tuesdays, November 11 to 21, from 6:30 – 8:30
This 3-session class builds on the Level I class, focusing on the inevitable challenges of maintaining focus on longterm change.  Pre-requisite is completion of Weight Control with Hypnosis Level I–no matter when you took the first class.
