MIND WAVES GROUP HYPNOSIS
WHAT – Mind Waves Group Hypnosis w/ Flute Sound Healing - Trust Yourself & Others
WHEN – Saturday 10 October
“Trust your hunches. They’re usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level” - Dr. Joyce Brothers
In this group hypnosis and sound healing, we will work together to gain the keys to trust others, our intuition and the decisions we make from within. We will dialogue to remove the blocks for you to become more confident in your personal choices. This workshop will include tools for restoring trust and relieving anxiety around trusting yourself.

The flute is a vessel that animates breath and offers guidance towards imagination, memory retrieval, personal reflection and relaxation. Since at least 40,000 years ago, sound healing has been practiced by indigenous peoples, and it was Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras who employed "music as medicine". Dana will offer an aural incantation to support this workshop experience by complimenting the calming, restorative somatic responses in the parasympathetic system resulted from the hypnotherapy process.
What is Hypnosis ?
The most accurate way to define hypnosis is to compare it to an interactive guided meditation. It is a natural state of mind. You don't have to work hard for hypnotherapy to be effective. In fact, just the opposite is true. All you need to do is relax and let it happen. Resolution and freedom can result in a healthier body, mind and spirit. It is an altered state of consciousness and invites a heightened responsiveness to suggestion. Hypnosis is designed to communicate with the subconscious mind using images, sounds and feelings. While in this state you are fully in control and are aware of every moment you are creating.
