Live online – on Tuesday 28th July you can join Ivan Tyrrell, a leading authority on hypnosis and trance states, from the comfort of your home to explore this important topic in more detail. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions and join in the stimulating discussion. All you need is a computer or tablet and a strong internet signal, the rest is easy – simply book your place and we will email you details of how to join this morning workshop via Zoom.
NB A recording of the training will be available to delegates for 2 weeks afterwards in case anyone experiences technical difficulties on the day.
A fundamental, but little known, part of being human is that all learning, and the pleasures we enjoy, involve trance states.
Our ability to focus attention has enabled us to make great advances in science, philosophy and the arts. It is hugely helpful in therapy, medicine and education – but it also has a downside making us vulnerable to being conditioned, manipulated and psychologically traumatised.
This new half-day course gives you profound information, which is crucial for our individual and collective sanity. Self-development depends on knowing that where we focus our attention and how we spend our time is crucial. An in-depth understanding of the role of trance in everyday life and what this means for our rapidly fracturing society – with its constant diet of social media – is becoming increasingly urgent.
Our natural propensity to go into trance has great advantages but it can also stop us thinking critically, be easily misused, even damage individuals and make whole populations ‘less than human’.
