Is there a big difference or it is just a different approach to the same state of mind?

The reason I ask is that I've observed some phenomena arising from deep meditation to be similar to hypnosis...

Nothing much apart from one tends to be more goal orientated while the other is more towards achieving a state of mind. Other than that they are the same.

One puts you to sleep in the sense of heightened awareness and focus while the other puts you to the deep sleep you have at night after a long day of work? Smile

Interesting, I thought most Hypnotists made distinctions between the two...

I guess I was wrong.

Hypnosis vs. Meditatin vs. Yoga

The only difference I can tell, is that in Yoga one must wear funny clothes. Otherwise, no difference.... I teach both- and teach mediation/self-hypnosis as interchangeable terms....

Hey Richard; hypnosis, meditation, yoga... you know a lot, however: what do you know about turkeys?

I teach meditation at San Francisco de Quito University and I believe both reach the same mind state, (Alpha and sometimes deeper) but a person under a hypnosis trance is very suggestionable.

For example, when I just learned hypnosis I was experimenting using hypnotic language as I did meditation inductions to my students, and I have to say that the results were obvious because they were feeling the instructions in a stronger way than when I did it without thinking about the hypnotic language. That was one of the things that encouraged me in the begining to start doing stage hypnosis.

Being this my first post in 2011: Happy new year to you all!!!
