They have to start some where. Stage hypnosis interest often leads to a general interest in hypnosis. There is nothing wrong pointing someone in a few directions they can then make up their minds which direction they want to follow in depth.

Ture and building a stage like performance I would think would be a good start and a better way to learn to connect with the individual.

Not really they are two different pursuits. Nothing much to do with each other.

Please read the rules of this forum: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......forum=22

Quote:
2) No ARGUMENTS ABOUT THE "REALITY" OF HYPNOSIS, please. Hypnosis, AS A FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT, is most certainly REAL as many of the participants in this forum actively practice this form of theater to earn their livings. Any arguments as to whether hypnosis is "real" or not are best left to other forums outside of the Café'. In deference to the members who are practicing professional stage hypnotists in this forum, please refrain from starting any threads about whether hypnosis is "real" or not. Any posts on this topic will be deleted starting now. This is NOT negotiable.


You are implying that all hypnosis shows are fake, and that's both rude and short sighted. Do you have any idea the logistical nightmare that would be involved with trying to employ that many people in each show? AND to keep them all quiet? Not going to happen.

You should learn the basics, and then come back and ask questions.

Logistical? How about financial nightmare LOL!

But yes I employ between 10 and 20 different people each and every night. Why not? And then in my case they get to stay at the resort for a week with their wife and or families. Because wouldn't it look suspicious if suddenly those were 20 people you didn't see the rest of the week? Sure why not? Makes perfect sense. How else could the show be done?

Same with the guys who work cruise ships.

The real tricky part is getting friends and family members not to spill the beans. I tell ya, it's a hard knock life.

Thanks for you guys for your input

I just like learning about new stuff, and I am not arguing I'm not saying anything is fake or real I just want to know and learn.

The reason there is a debate is that there is no answer.

Ok - let's try this again.

Saying that all the people who do "crazy stuff" work for the hypnotist is saying that it's faked. That's against the rules and it's best just to stop that kind of thinking entirely. Learn the fundamentals, and then come back and ask questions.

This is being said to him over and over. He's been offered some great advice, but seems to be seeking a magician's shortcut. The first thing to correct is his current misperceptions of what hypnosis is and what is truly a hypnosis performance. Much studying to do.

I'm just trying to find my place in all of this. And yes I have had a lot of great advice but the more info I can pick up the better. Buts let's just beat this post with a stick and kill it. I have started with reality is plastic few hours in and its a lot of good information feels like a good starting point for basic knowledge and know how.

There's your first misperception that the more info you can pickup the better. There has never been so much crap, incorrect and misinformation out there as there is currently. Like finding a proper, good and credible training program, you must also be careful about who and what advice you listen to. I'm not sure Reality Is Plastic is anything I would recommend, although it is and was marketed as hypnosis for magicians.

I proofread the second edition of Reality is Plastic. It's aimed at the "street hypnotist" rather than magicians (you may be thinking of The Manchurian Approach by the same author). It's a sensible introduction to the subject and also contains useful information for hypnotherapists (as does McGill's New Encyclopedia).

I started with Reality is Plastic. It's a good place to start, but it's also not the only source one needs. It's just the first stepping stone. It's aimed to "street hypnosis" as Barry said.

impulse - The problem with the "Gather all the info" idea is that you don't know enough yet to sort the wheat from the chaff. I could point you towards a hundred resources, all of which contradict each other, and none of which are putting out anything interesting or terribly new.

We've given you the recommendations for a beginner. Read/attend those, and get the foundations down before you really start exploring other sources. You need to understand the basics so you are able to understand what's bunk and what's valuable.
