Monday 26 October | Introduction to Self-Hypnosis | 7:30pm / 2 hours
Self-hypnosis provides an opportunity to increase internal focus, loss of interest to the external world and increased suggestibility. This is a state you chose to go into, not one that is imposed on you. The essence of the evening will be to teach you the art that you can then use in your day to day life enhancing your will to achieve your desires and create new positive habits. At no point will you be out of control or do or say anything that you do not want to. With Diana Tibble
