Guess Who’s a Guest Blogger at Bellevue College Continuing Education

Best Seattle area hypnosis & NLP

Access your creative mind!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

I was asked to share my expertise in hypnosis by Bellevue College.  Number one, by teaching courses there.  Yes, I do.  (Two courses coming up next month!)  In addition, last week they contacted me to be a contributor on their blog.  To write something for their readers!

Well, those of you who may follow THIS blog know that writing is “my thing.”  I jumped at the opportunity.  It also supports my personal goal  of enlarging the world’s understanding of this so-misunderstood treasure-trove of power called “hypnosis.”

Here’s what I wrote:  Self-Hypnosis: A tool for life success!

Here’s an excerpt:

“Everybody has the ability inside their unconscious mind to create a new world. The one they want! The one that’s joy-filled, successful, happy, free, fun, and all the things people want for themselves. We activate change through this part of our mind.  Hypnosis unlocks positive change and unleashes potential. Why not use ALL of your brain for a change?”

I’m excited to teach these brief courses next month.  If you’d like to find out more, here are the links to Bellevue College Continuing Ed’s website.

Self Hypnosis for Healthy Eating & Weight Loss from 2/15 – 2/22 (2 Wednesdays)

In this mind-opening webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How hypnosis can be used as a seemingly magical tool for self-development

https://app.webinarjam.net/register/3326/a5fddc6a15

What kind of successes can you expect from our certification training? Here’s the scoop from a couple former students of “Discover the Magic of Hypnosis”:

“Connie and Michael are the best!! They really teach all the important things about hypnosis in a concise and positive way, and give you the tools you need to succeed. They are a pleasure to learn from, and I feel very confident to start my own practice. I can’t thank them enough! Highly recommended!!” – Dawn F., Seattle, WA

“What a grand journey. A mere 4 days, and how very far I have traveled! Studying with Connie and Michael was such a pleasure. Both are fabulous instructors, making learning fun and exciting. And I became a hypnotist! Wow!

Initially just the concept of learning trance induction was overwhelming but, with their combined years of experience and knowledge, technique and practical tips, the Brannans guided me through it all, filling me with confidence along the way. In fact, just one single technique alone made it worth the price of admission for me.

If you have any interest in learning hypnosis, trance induction and accessing the untapped resources of the human mind, Mindworks NLP is definitely the place to be. Once again, many thanks!” – Jon Komatsu, Seattle, WA

Yay, for new hypnotherapists. I say, the more the merrier, and yay for more success, joy, and helping in the world. You might notice a common theme in the comments: confidence. We use hypnosis to teach hypnosis, and installing confidence in our students is always on our agenda. Obviously, we were successful.

Now is the time for hypnosis.

Michael and I are teaching our 4 day live hypnosis training event again, July 7 – 10, 2016, through the school side of our work, Mindworks NLP. It’s always a fabulous experience, with lots of fresh minds opening up to the power of words, unconscious creativity and problem-solving ability. We love to unleash newly minted “Certified Hypnotists” for the betterment of the world, and specifically, the Seattle area.

Self Hypnosis for Healthy Eating and Weight Loss @ Bellevue College

Lose weight with Seattle's most effective hypnotherapy & NLPHi, Hypnosis Friends and Enthusiasts!

We have an expression in the “biz.”  “All hypnosis is self hypnosis.”  This is true.  It’s a learning state of mind we put ourselves into.  It happens naturally all the time.  And it can happen by design.  That’s our traditional understanding of the words “self hypnosis.”

And there can be triggers for INSTANT hypnosis, like flipping a light switch, from awake to hypnosis.  That’s what I install for students at Bellevue College who take my Self Hypnosis for Healthy Eating and Weight Loss course.  It starts tomorrow, June 1st.

http://www.campusce.net/BC/course/course.aspx?C=13255&mc=1893&pc=1817

Who wants in?  This is an amazing tool.

It’s like the old expression:  “Give a man a fish and he has dinner tonight.  Teach him HOW to fish, and he has an endless supply of dinners.” Self hypnosis is fishing for personal development!

Join me in this marvelous adventure.  I invite you.  It’s two evenings wherein we stuff your mind full of new understandings of what is hypnosis, how does the mind work, how do we create change in ourselves, some language of influence, and this instant trigger for trance is installed. You learn to DO self hypnosis.  You learn and you play.  It’s experiential. Hypnosis happens.

Fun, fun, fun.  That’s my opinion and I’m sticking with it.

Experience Hypnosis – Bellevue College Event 10-21-15

Seattle Hypnotherapy & NLP BellevueHi, Hypnosis Friends and Enthusiasts!

Here is an opportunity to get hypnotized and experience that state of being which is calm, quiet, clear-minded, and creative.  Here’s a chance to see something useful change in your life.  It’s my A Chance to Trance one evening experiential class at Bellevue College on 10/21/15 at 7:00 pm:

Hypnosis is an experience I believe everyone in the universe should enjoy as a means to goal achievement.  Not only do I teach hypnosis and use it in my business Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP, I use it myself.  And do you know what, it works!

People who have heard about hypnosis think it’s limited in it’s uses.  FALSE.  It can help achieve the proper mindset and body cooperation for any goal.  Here’s a personal example:

I had oral surgery yesterday.  It was supposedly “a big deal,” with pain killers prescribed and a million rules and do’s and don’t do’s for “post op.”  I used self hypnosis for accelerated, perfect healing, and do you know what?  Today I feel fine.  It took one ibuprofen after the surgery, that’s it.  No pain.  No swelling.  The surgeon was recommending sedation medication for the surgery itself (and told me that was typical for his patients).  I said, no thank you.  And I didn’t need it.  I used self hypnosis to remain calm, and relaxed throughout.

Our minds are more powerful than we use.  If you’re ready to learn more about hypnosis and experience that state for yourself, then my event next week is for you.  It’s moocho inexpensive.  You can sign up through Bellevue College at the link above.   Hope to see you there!

What is Hypnosis Useful For? Discover Hypnosis Webinar Excerpt

Seattle hypnotherapy clinic Mindworks Hypnosis

Find your happiness with hypnosis.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Yesterday evening, Michael and I shared some thoughts and insights into how the mind works and hypnosis as a change tool.  We had a lot of fun, it was our first ever Webinar offering online.

It’s cool, and it’s easy for participants, as anyone with internet can join us from their own home or phone.  It was a great learning experience for us, as well, as to the technical necessities of this form of online sharing of info.

In the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing snippets of our presentation from last night.  Here’s one right now, where I answer the question:  “What is hypnosis good for?”  My answer:  anything that involves the mind.  Here’s the video:

Sorry for the uneven sound–we’re still learning the technical side of all this. I hope you can hear my passion and enthusiasm coming through, as well as info.  I’m including a text transcript as well:

“Hello! Connie, again! What has hypnosis been used for? Pretty much anything you can imagine. If your mind is involved, hypnosis can be useful for that. It’s been used clinically for so many different things. The big three: weight loss, quit smoking, and anxiety and stress release. Those are the mainstream kind of things that people come to a hypnotist for.

However, it’s possible to do so much more beyond that. We can stop pain. We can stop bleeding. We can help people to have comfort during oral surgery without anesthesia. Surgical procedures without anesthesia. Through the power of the mind. Accelerated healing. There’s a whole field of hypnosis called hypno-birthing. I don’t partake of that, however many people do. And that is all about preparing the person’s mind for comfortable childbirth.

There’s just so many different uses. And I can tell you a little bit more about some of the clients I’ve had in my office. Really, it’s everyday people with everyday issues.

• People that have had relationship breakups and they want to stop obsessing about their old partner.

• People that play golf. They want to be a better golfer, they just want to score better in their game. Any sport, any sport you can name, hypnosis is a way to focus the mind to access a skill set and automate it!

• Any kind of phobias or fears that are inappropriate for life can be shifted. I have seen every phobia under the sun. Fear of overripe bananas. Fear of record stores. Fear of dinosaurs. Just fear of anything you can imagine. Fear of the wind! Imagine how terrifying that would be, living here in the Pacific Northwest. You see a leaf move, and you go into a panic attack. These things are not resourceful. They’re not useful. And the mind can make those changes very easily.

• I’ve worked with artists. I’ve worked with musicians.

• Kids with test anxiety.

• I’ve helped a stroke survivor regain cognitive function.

• I’ve helped people with memory.

• If you’re into the esoteric explorations, I even did past life recall type work with people where we go backwards in time in their imagination and we replicate and recreate wisdom and learnings from prior lives. Whether you believe it’s an actual thing, a past life, or simply a symbolic representation in the mind, either way it has useful information there. So, sometimes in hypnosis, that’s where we go.

What is hypnosis good for? Really, anything and everything! I have worked with kids to senior citizens for everything. If it’s something that you want to be different in your life, hypnosis is a tool that can help you get that communication into the unconscious. Where it has power.

Because, here’s the bottom line: Your unconscious mind is really super agreeable. It will create for you the things you instruct it to do. It is so agreeable, so accommodating, and so creative in making it happen.

The problem that people run into is they think about the things they don’t want in their life. With hypnosis, we pull them out of that thinking and put them into the other side of the coin. As Albert Einstein said: “You can’t solve a problem with the same thinking that created it.” Or maintains it! What do you want? How do you want life to be different? How do you want to feel? What do you want to think? What behaviors do you want to modify? You can change anything about yourself.

This is so underutilized, hypnosis. I believe and feel that, as time goes on, hypnosis is going to gain, and gain, and gain in credibility. And appreciation. And become mainstream. There are going to be as many hypnotists and hypnosis clinics as there are pedicure and fingernail manicure shops. On every corner, practically. Or dry cleaners. Because hypnosis can help anyone do anything. That’s my belief and I’m sticking with it.” — Connie Brannan, CHt. & Licensed Trainer of NLP®

For more information as to the uses of hypnotherapeutic hypnosis, you can check out my FAQ:  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net/faq/.  Removing fear, weight loss, quit smoking, stress release, fingernail biting, any behavioral changes, sleep improvement, improved motivation and confidence, enhanced creativity.  And more and more and more.  You name it, hypnosis helps!

I hope you enjoy learning more about hypnosis on my blog here.  We also offer full blown live hypnosis trainings, hands on, face to face experiential courses in Bellevue.  How to hypnotize. How to craft language for maximum unconscious power and change.  Instant inductions.  Silent inductions. Spontaneous hypnosis scripts flowing from your mind and not read from a piece of paper.  We have a four day training coming up.  July 9 – 12, 2015 is our “Discover the Magic Of Hypnosis” hypnotherapy training.  If you’d like to join us, we still have a few seats available.  Info is here:  http://seattlenlptraining.com/learn-hypnosis/

Hypnosis is something wonderful.  Find out more anytime either in my clinical hypnosis practice or my Licensed career school for hypnosis and NLP.

What is Hypnosis? — Tonight’s Webinar Answer by Connie

Connie Brannan, CHt.Transcript/excerpt of Connie Brannan answering a question: “What is Hypnosis” for webinar “Discover the Magic of Hypnosis.” broadcast June 30, 2015.

“Hi, Connie again! And now we’re going to have a brief conversation about what is hypnosis. We are assuming that you are a newcomer to this beautiful, magical, creative process called hypnosis. So, we’re going to take it from square one.

What is hypnosis? We have in our minds a conscious awareness. Awake. Aware. Living our life in the world. What we think. Logic. Reason. Evaluation. Focus. This is a conscious thing, we notice what’s around us. We notice what we can notice, and guess what? It’s a tiny, tiny bit of available information. We can only notice so much.

Hypnosis is an accessing of a different kind of consciousness, a resourceful, creative consciousness! Unconsciousness, which is also called subconscious. What it is: it’s everything else beyond that conscious awareness. You might notice one thing, two things, three things, in a moment. Your unconscious is taking in billions of pieces of information.

It is handling the processes of language. Translation. Understanding sound. The ability to speak and communicate. How to move your mouth. How to form words. Understanding. You don’t have to think about that. It has become automated, unconscious.

Unconscious mind stores your life experience in memory. It’s not a conscious memory, it’s an unconscious memory. It’s total recall. Holographic life experience. The definition of hypnosis: we get the conscious mind to step aside. Get out of our way! You’ve had your shot to solve this thing, now, step aside! When the conscious mind steps aside, it opens up a doorway into this creative, unconscious mind.

Here are some of the aspects of the conscious mind vs. the unconscious mind. Your conscious mind is analytical. Logical. Sequential. One thing at a time. Very, very limited in its focus. And it directs our day to day outcomes. Whereas, the unconscious mind is creative, unlimited and expansive. It is doing so many things, multi-functioning! It handles our feelings, our imagination. Our intuition. Our creativity. Our problem-solving ability.

And in addition to that, it’s running the body. Everything to do with the body and how it functions. Breathing and blood flow! So, now, I’m sitting here and I’m breathing. I wasn’t thinking about breathing a moment ago. And yet, it’s still happening. If I want to, I can consciously adjust my breathing. This is an example. I can breathe faster. I can breathe slower. I can breathe deeper. But if I forget all about it and stop directing it, guess what? I’m still breathing.

Unconscious mind handles digestion, and breathing, and blow flow, and healing and every process inside the body. Renewal of cells. All these things. These are unconscious processes handled by this fabulous, powerful unconscious mind. Gee! What a good thing to have on our side, huh? Talking to the unconscious mind about the things we want. That’s basically hypnosis.

You know, we talk about left brain, right brain. It’s really one mind, and it has different functions. My favorite, obviously, is your creative mind, your artistic mind. Some people say: “What’s more important, creativity or knowledge?” I believe creativity! As well as imagination. Maybe those words are synonymous.

Here’s an image and you can see:

Mind Functions and Hypnosis
Thinking, reason, linear, analytic logic. Science is on that left side there. Science, medicine, therapies that think “one size fits all,” one problem one solution. That’s not the kind of thinking that we use in hypnosis. Heck, no!

What we know in hypnosis to be true is that everyone is unique. And everybody has the ability, inside their unconscious mind to create a new world. The one they want! The one that’s joy-filled, and successful, and happy, and free, and fun, and all the things people want for themselves. It’s really accessible through this part of our mind.

So, what is hypnosis? There’s lots and lots of different definitions out there. The formal analytical one is: “It’s a bypassing of your critical factor, the conscious mind.” When you bypass, you push it aside, you go around it, you get in that door, you’re talking to the unconscious. That’s unconscious communication. That’s hypnosis!

My own definition: it’s a state of accelerated learning. Because, in this place in your mind you can make changes so fast. You can have new thoughts, new intuitions, new solutions to life’s dilemmas. And it happens at such an incredibly accelerated rate of speed. Unlike other therapies that might say to a person: “It will take months and months of hard work to make a change. Change is struggle. Change is horrendously difficult.” Well, that’s not what we believe in the world of hypnosis. We believe change is easy. And once you get into this state of mind, you have that accelerated learning available to you.

“What is hypnosis?” It’s a focused attention. It’s not sleep. Here we have an interesting word: monoideism. Focusing on a single idea. That is a good definition. However, that name itself just doesn’t sound sexy or anything. It never caught on.

We use the word “hypnosis,” Greek for “sleep.” That’s a huge myth, hypnosis is not sleep. Not in any way, shape, or form. It is a creative mind space.”

Hypnosis is Meditation on Steroids

Hypnosis unlocks your power of mind!Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Michael and I are offering 4 Power of Mind Workshops next month in the Seattle area, Bellevue, WA to be specific. It’s a great way for people to learn amazing empowerment techniques and ideas at an affordable cost in a tiny chunk of time. One Day!

These are all one-day “taster” seminars offered through the private career school side of my work: http://seattlenlptraining.com/day-seminars/.  In the workshops we explain, demo and the students play with NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (the Art & Science of Excellence).

Michael and I are also offering one seminar on Self Hypnosis, which has caught my attention and prompted me to post.  Every time I teach self hypnosis at Bellevue College, someone asks me:  “Well, how is self hypnosis different from meditation?”  I’ve thought of a great answer:  hypnosis takes it to the next level, with an added oomph for success. Hypnosis is “meditation on steroids.”  And you can quote me!  🙂

Meditation IS a kind of hypnosis, where the goal seems to be to achieve the state of quiet mind and roll around in it–hoping some good things spontaneously generate.  And they probably will!  What’s different about self hypnosis?  Hypnotherapy and self hypnosis use this state of mind targeted for strategic change:  GOALS. With self hypnosis, you’re telling your mind to DO something, to create a specific outcome for your life, whether it be healthier habits or a new body shape, or accelerated healing, or becoming multi-lingual quickly, etc. etc. etc.  Here the etcs are endless.

Yay, for the brain, and it’s very agreeable nature!

At Bellevue College I teach a snippet of this material, as the time allows there.  NOW, Michael and I are teaching this together through our own school, Mindworks NLP, and are offering it to you in an expanded format.  An all day event.  It’s slated for June 20th.  More info is here:  http://seattlenlptraining.com/day-seminars/

Hypnosis is one of my great loves.  I have another:  NLP.  Here’re the other courses we’re offering next month:

8 Years! Happy Anniversary to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP!

8 Years of Hypotherapy & NLP Excellence.

Happy 8 Magical Years to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

This morning Linkedin told me that people were congratulating me on an event — my 8 years work anniversary. It’s nice to remember the things I had forgotten to notice. I began my business, Mindworks Hypnosis, in January, 2007. Eight years! Happy Anniversary to me.

When I discovered the helping power and the absolute creative joy of doing NLP, (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and Hypnotherapy, I quit my job as a Bookkeeper/Office Manager, created this business, and I’ve never looked back. Dozens of additional hypnosis and NLP trainings under the belt, three different offices and thousands of clients later, and I love this work more than ever. This has been the best eight years of my life!

I remember my first paying client, she was a girl named Heather who wanted to stop fingernail biting. She had one session with me, and she was successful. She was also my first testimonial, which is still on my website:, http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net:

“I had a manicure last night…I haven’t had a strong urge to bite my nails and I can’t exactly find the words but it is an amazing feeling. Thanks so much, Connie!” –Heather R., Seattle

When I started this job, I got some really bad business advice:  To pretend I’m good at only one thing.  To market myself as a “specialty.”  To say I’m the hypnosis weight loss specialist.  Or, I’m the hypnosis quit smoking specialist.  I refused then and now to limit the power of what I do.  My expertise is in facilitating change in unconscious strategies for behaviors and beliefs and states of mind and body in any realm of activity whatsoever.

In the eight years, I’ve successfully helped an amazing variety of clients, from weight loss, quit smoking, ending fear and anxieties, all the way to working with  pro and Olympic athletes, clients with addictions (drugs, alcohol, gambling, sugar, and etc.).  Helping kids with study skills, confidence, and self esteem, helping with physical and accelerated healing, helping stroke survivors with mental function, helping erase blocks to business success, improved sleeping, improved memory, improved intimacy, and so on. As we say at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP, if the mind is involved in the activity (which is EVERYTHING), then hypnosis helps.

Lots of people in life are looking to “find their passion.” The thing they love doing and are good at, which utilizes and highlights their strengths.  The thing that they would choose above all other careers.  The thing that makes them smile in the morning, excited and happy to be going to work.  I found mine, and this is it!

All the Best,
Connie

A New Course at Bellevue College – NLP for Dating and Relating

NLP for Dating and Relating

NLP for Dating and Relating

Hi, Hypnosis Friends & Enthusiasts!

The work I do and teach in the Seattle area is hypnosis and NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming — amazing methodologies for personal development and goal getting, goal achievement. Hypnosis and NLP are applicable and wonderful for so many varieties of change — from weight management to phobia fixes, to behavioral changes such as quit smoking and stop fingernail biting, to sports enhancement to improving relationships and communications, and pretty much any activity where your brain is involved.  (ALL!)

In the realm of that last category, relationships and communications, I am offering a new course at Bellevue College this winter quarter.  It’s called:  NLP for Dating and Relating. NLP has been called “hypnosis on steroids.”

http://www.campusce.net/BC/course/course.aspx?C=13808&pc=1817&mc=1893&sc=

Here’s the course description for NLP for Dating and Relating:

Are you interested in dating or improving relationships with those around you? Effective communication can improve any relationship! You will learn how to build rapport and connect with people in the best way possible, both socially and in business contexts. Create states of mind and body in yourself (such as confidence and joy) that lead to effective communications. NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is a methodology of effective communications, both on the conscious and unconscious level. Connie Brannan is a Licensed Trainer of NLP ®.

NLP for Dating and Relating
Item: W9509 Connie Brannan
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM North Campus Room: V1021
Sessions: 1 W Address: 14673 NE 29th Place Bellevue, WA 98007
3/18/2015 – 3/18/2015 Fee: $49.00

What is NLP?  I talk about that here:

The course, a one night, 2-hour adventure, is all about building new states in ourselves that enhance communications, confidence, ease, flow of words, sharp-minded, humor, and so on.  It’s also about understanding rapport (positive connections between people) and how to facilitate rapport.–PHYSICALLY.  And verbally.  It’s fun, cool, stuff. And super powerful.

My goal for the course is that people should walk out the door after the class feeling more empowered and positive, with tools to use for improved communications.  I’d love for you to join me!

Happy Five Year Anniversary to “The Hypnotizer!”

Happy 5th Anniversary to "The Hypnotizer" Blog.

Happy 5th Anniversary to “The Hypnotizer” Blog.

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

It’s a landmark.  🙂  Five years!!  It’s been five years this month that I’ve been sharing my thoughts, insights, and passion for hypnosis and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and the power of the mind here on this blog.  I’ve shared articles I’ve written, stories, client successes, videos I’ve created, event notices, musings, and more.  All original content. My thoughts, my voice, my stories.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading, watching, learning, and thinking about the things that I have shared here.  I love what I do, and I love when someone realizes “yes, I can” and creates a better life.  Empowerment, that’s hypnosis.  Thanks for joining me on this ride into the power of personal change! If you’re new to my blog, I invite you to check out the full archive!  It’s located on the upper right column, midway down.  “Archives.”  Five years worth of reading pleasure.

To celebrate this landmark, I’ll be pulling out some vintage articles and stories from my blog that I’ve written and share them again.  Here’s one of my earliest posts from October 2009.

It’s cold and flu season (but not for me!)

Hi, guys! Who watches television? (Raising my own hand, but only half way.) 🙂 I hardly watch at all any more, because the quality of “what’s on” is going down, down, down, and my time for leisure is going down as well. That’s a good thing, but that’s also another topic. This one is:

Dramatic pause. Negative suggestions.

Watching TV this past week, I can’t help but notice the BOMBARDMENT of ads right now, commercials for cold & flu medicines and paraphernalia. Here’s the message: “It’s cold and flu season.” and that means “You’re going to get sick., you can expect to get sick.” I also notice that the stores are stocking the aisles with cold and flu medicines and products–prominent and in-your-face, on the end caps and special displays, with alarming banners warning that cold and flu season is here! Same message: “It’s time for you to get sick now! You’re going to get sick now.” It’s not a warning, per se, it’s a directive! It’s a negative suggestion. And our minds seem quite willing to embrace it without question!

Michael has a story he likes. He was in a work training with a woman. She told this story: She knew that every year she would have one bout of illness per cold and flu season, one only. The reason she’d only have one was because she’d prepare for it, and take massive doses of vitamins. She knew that she’d only get sick once! Her vitamins would protect her from further illness! And yes, it did transpire that she’d only get sick once per winter/season. BUT…one winter she got so busy and forgot to prepare with her vitamins, didn’t think about it at all. Guess what? She didn’t get sick that winter. Not once. Not at all. She forgot to get sick!!

Here’s a personal story about my personal experiences. This is NOT medical advice, because…I’m not medical. I’m a hypnotist. And here’s one positive side effect I enjoy from my hypnosis. Your mileage may vary.

I don’t get sick, either. Ever. Because I’ve decided not to. I USED to get sick, just like everyone else. Two major colds a year. At LEAST two. Until I discovered hypnosis and how the mind processes ideas and suggestions. Three years, (as of this writing, October 2009) and I haven’t been sick. Not a sniffle. I did have food poisoning for one day (some bad shrimp on a Vegas buffet), but it ended quite quickly. I don’t get sick because my unconscious mind rejects the idea, and does what it needs to do to make sure I stay well–strengthening my immune system, or whatever it wants to do. I can happily trust my unconscious to keep me well, and ignore those nitty gritty details as well. I don’t care how. I just know it’s in place. Wellness. I can hang around sick people, avoid hand sanitizer, ignore those commercials and product displays, no flu shot for me, and stay well. Three years and counting…

Hypnosis is incredibly powerful. And our understanding is just a miniscule slice of that giant cake. There’s so much more to know and learn. The unconscious mind knows how to keep us healthy. I talk to the mind in ways it likes, to do just that!

What do you suppose would happen if you decided to stay well this winter?

Warm Regards,
Connie

Connie’s Presenting a Talk to the Oregon Hypnotherapy Association

Oregon Hypnotherapy AssociationHi, Hypno-Friends!

I’m excited to announce that I have been chosen to be a featured presenter at the Oregon Hypnotherapy Association’s spring educational conference this month.  I’m giving a talk on the topic of aversion therapy—that’s the art of using hypnosis to attach “a big fat no!” to the habits and behaviors that people want to stop doing.  That runs the gamut of things like stopping smoking, drinking, overeating, fingernail biting, procrastination, and more.

In the field of hypnosis, there’s harmful negative aversion (suggesting illness and death–which I would NEVER do to a client), and there’s positive aversion.  The “aversion” aspect of any work I do is all positive aversion.  Here’s more about my talk for those interested in the nitty gritty of hypnotherapy, who may read my blog.

The Power of Positive Aversion
Connie Brannan, CHt., Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapist and Licensed Trainer of NLP®

What would you never do?  “I’d never kill anyone.”  Sure,  you would.  If the situation was such that the killing became an imperative and appropriate response.   That’s not a felt response,  that’s an intellectual response.  What makes your skin crawl?  What is it that you would REALLY never do, such that the thought of it is so repellant and disgusting and fearful to you that it turns your stomach and your brain says about it:  “That’s a big fat NO!”  Eat live worms?  Kiss your grandmother?  Jump out of an airplane for fun?

Aversion in hypnotherapy is the art of attaching a “big fat NO” to an unwanted behavior such as smoking or eating sweets, in the mind AND the body.  In this talk, I demonstrate a potent NLP technique to achieve this.

Finding and attaching the most potent multi-sensual aversion connection is very much an art form.  Hypnotherapy itself is a creative art, and the more you successfully tailor ideas and associations for the person in front of you and what moves them, the more successful results you will achieve for them.  Everybody is different, and their “big fat nos” are different.

In this talk we discuss aversion.  Unwise, harmful aversion (you’re going to die a horrible corrosive death with illness, pain and suffering if you continue the behavior) vs. creative positive aversion.   For a long time I avoided aversion suggestions altogether, because it seemed to me to be only negative and hurtful.    It doesn’t have to be.   Also in this talk we discuss how useful aversion is in a propulsion system to change, combined with the positive attraction of desired outcome.

Connie Brannan, CHt, is a Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapist, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Licensed Trainer of Neuro-Linguistic Programming™, Professional Conversational Hypnotherapist, Design Human Engineer™, Persuasion Engineer™, Timeline Coach & Regression Specialist, Usui Reiki Master Teacher, and Matrix Energetics Practitioner. She operates a clinical NLP and hypnotherapy practice out of Bellevue, WA, called Mindworks Hypnosis  as well as training NLP with her husband, Michael Brannan, in their private career school, Mindworks NLP, through the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming™.  She is a published author and creator of several hypnosis self-help audio CD products. She conducts a series of self-hypnosis workshops and teaches hypnosis for adult continuing education programs in the Seattle area.

Happy International Day of Happiness – From Mindworks Hypnosis

The UN declares, and of course I agree:  “The pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human goal.”  Yesterday, the world celebrated happy, with the 2014 International Day of Happiness.  If you want to hear some uber-catchy happy music and see some happy faces and bodies dancing to it, look on Youtube.com under the search term hashtag happy, #HAPPY.

Here’s one:

I think we should do more of that.  🙂  I think happiness is too big to contain within a single calendar day, and should be welcomed and celebrated and lived every day.  What kind of a world would it be if people were HAPPY every day?  A different world, a better world.  Because…

In the words of my favorite teacher, Dr. Richard Bandler:  “Good feelings, good decisions.  Bad feelings, bad decisions.”  My work is all about good feelings, and making them unconsciously automated.  That’s hypnosis and NLP.  When you feel good, you think differently, and you act differently in ways that are useful.

Learn more anytime about the power of hypnosis and how easy it really is to find your happy.  Here:  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net

Warm Regards,
Connie

 

Away Go Troubles Down the Drain

running clear

Away go troubles down the drain with hypnosis!

Here’s another musing on hypnosis and the nature of personal changes.

I was thinking about my dad this morning.  He was very handy around the house, and could fix anything.  He was a Lowes kind of guy–loved going in those home improvement and hardware type stores.  As I was brushing my teeth this morning and staring at the water running in the sink, a vision from my childhood popped into my brain.

I could see my dad, lying on the bathroom floor with a “snake” type cable doing things to clear obstructions in the drain and pipes in the bathtub and sink.  He fixed it!  My dad was a wonderful problem solver.

Last week I had poured Draino in my own bathroom sink, and today I noticed that yes, the drain is running faster.  And that reminded me of hypnosis.

Everything is a hypnotic metaphor.  Everything.

My clients always want to know this:  how fast?  How long will it take to achieve x change with hypnosis?  It absolutely varies.  Sometimes it’s instant!  Like my dad and his Roto-Rooter type pipe snake clearing a clog instantly.   The brain says:  “Oh, that blockage is unnecessary!  Goodbye!”

Sometimes change needs to work it’s way through the mind and body and habits, like Draino’s chemical reactions through pipes.  You pour it in and you let it sit, and yet it’s working.  Dissolving those clogs over time.  Hypnotic suggestions keep “workin’ it” over time, as well.

Brain and drain.  Very similar words.  Mere coincidence?  🙂  Bottom line, hypnosis is absolutely wonderful to flush troubles out of your life.  The evidence is here:  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net.

GREAT AMERICAN SMOKEOUT GROUP HYPNOSIS SESSION OFFERED BY MINDWORKS HYPNOSIS

November 21, 7-9 pm, Bellevue, WA.

Experience the power of hypnosis to help you focus your mind and achieve your goal of becoming smoke-free.

Hypnosis: The Most Effective Therapy of All

Stop Smoking, Seattle!

Stop Smoking, Seattle!

Written by guest blogger, Michael Brannan.  🙂

Did you know that hypnosis is described by a prominent scientific journal as: “The most effective way of giving up smoking” (New Scientist, issue #1845, October 31, 1992, p 6). This was the conclusion reached after reviewing some 600 studies totaling nearly 72,000 people.

To find the most effective way to give up smoking, researchers carried out a meta-analysis, statistically combining the results of more than 600 smoking cessation studies covering almost 72,000 people from across the globe.  By combining the results from so many separate studies, the meta-analysis enables the real effectiveness of each technique to be seen. The results are clear:  the use of clinical hypnosis for smoking cessation is the most effective approach to becoming smoke-free in existence!  And, one of the least expensive!

The results are in.  According to the extensive research, here are the relative
effectiveness of various therapies:

Nicotine Replacement Therapy/Patches and gum, 7%

Will power alone (“cold turkey”), 6 – 11%

Herbal remedies, Lozenges, Nasal sprays,   2 – 5%

Herbal cigarettes, Inhalers, 2 – 5%

Prescription drugs, 20%

Acupuncture, 24%

HYPNOSIS!, 60%

We’re Connie and Michael Brannan, owners and operators of Mindworks Hypnosis, and we’ve been helping people end the smoking habit for over 7 years. We use a unique and powerful blend of hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to stop smoking dead in it’s tracks.

You may not have heard of NLP, but it is the most advanced and powerful form of hypnosis there is. It has been called “hypnosis on steroids.” Knowing that hypnosis is already the most effective way to stop smoking, just imagine your results when you put it on steroids! Cool, huh?

You can quit, and we can help using this powerful, proven and safe method. And, unlike drugs, hypnosis has no negative side effects. It does, of course, have positive side effects–you’ll start feeling happy, energized, joyous, much better than you have in a long, long time. Call us and get on the path to healthy now: 425-564-8608.

Warm Regards,
Michael

NLP is Empowerment – 1 Day Seminars NLP for Sales & NLP for Personal Development

 

Society of Neuro Linguistic Programming

The Society of NLP - Go for Quality!

Hi, Hypno-Friends and Enthusiasts!

NLP is a conversational hypnosis.  It’s super powerful.  It’s been called “hypnosis on steroids.”  Yes, it is!  🙂  It’s the prime tool I use in my clinical work — and one of the main reasons I have over 140 testimonials of success on my website.

NLP is magic in action and Michael and I LOVE it.  We are both Licensed Trainers of NLP ™ through the co-creator of NLP, Dr. Richard Bandler.

In addition to the clinical work we do using NLP, Michael and I own and operate a Washington-State licensed private vocational school:  Mindworks NLP.  We TEACH hypnosis and NLP, to empower others to create their own success.

Through our school, we are offering two “taster” NLP one-day seminars this month.  On Sept 21 (Saturday) we offer “NLP for Sales and Business Success.”  On Sept 28 (Saturday) we offer “NLP for Personal Development and Life Success.”  More info is here, NLP One Day Seminars!  We sell these hands-on, live, experiential courses for $97.  However, right now, we are offering an “Early Bird” special of just $67.

NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming is an amazing methodology to control your emotional states, create motivation, calm, happy, persuasion, anything else you like where it’s useful to be that.  It’s about communication, and reading and understanding people through language and body.  It’s about influence, and effective communications.  We play with these tools.  Live and in person.  We show you, we guide you, we critique you to make sure you “get it.”  This isn’t some impersonal online nonsense or literature.  This is the real deal.  Live NLP demonstrations and exercises from two Licensed Trainers.

If you’d like to learn these tools, the opportunity is NOW.  This month.  We have sign up buttons on our webpage:  http://www.seattlenlptraining.com/.  If you’d like to join us and partake of more success in life, we’re happy to have you.  We only offer this a couple times a year, so now is a good time to improve business communications and sales techniques and enrich your life with our personal development NLP as well.

Hope to see you soon!

Warm Regards,
Connie & Michael

Self Hypnosis for Ongoing Success — Client Testimonial for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Perfect Sleeping with Hypnosis

Perfect Sleeping is just a trance away!

Hello, Hypno-Friends!

I received another nice testimonial this week.  I taught a lady with insomnia issues how to work with self hypnosis.  She wrote:

“Connie,  I’ve noticed some significant changes. I frequently use the self-hypnosis techniques to fall asleep, and I have been having very restful sleep. I’ve recommended you to my friend.   Best, Deborah C.” —  Greater Seattle area.

That’s right.  Hypnosis works for sleep improvement.  And more!

Have you ever heard this expression:  “Give a man a fish, he has dinner for one night.  Teach a man to fish, and he has the ability to feed himself forever.”  The idea here is the same.  I do lead people through guided hypnotherapy to positive changes one on one in my office in Bellevue.  I ALSO frequently teach clients self hypnosis as a tool for ongoing success and goal achievement.  I love to do this!

Self hypnosis is an amazing tool.  I also teach this methodology at Bellevue College Continuing Education.  We set an instant trigger for trance states and include lessons in goal setting and mind-focusing language.  Next self hypnosis course offering in Bellevue is Fall Quarter, on November 13 & 20.  Bellevue College is updating their website, however the enrollment link for my course should be up soon at:

http://www.campusce.net/BC/course/course.aspx?C=11559&pc=1817&mc=1893&sc=

If you don’t find the details of this online, please give Bellevue College a call directly and they will help get you enrolled.  I do hope you’ll join me.

Warm Regards,
Connie

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

Want to sleep with strangers? Well, there’s an opportunity to do just that, in a way that’s both safe and sensible. In fact, it’s a good thing, a terrific thing. To be 100% accurate, it’s not sleep, it just looks like it from the outside. It’s HYPNOSIS. Who wants to learn how to use their own mind to create success? Me! Me! Me! Me! Maybe you, too?

I’m teaching a continuing education course at Bellevue College for their Personal Enrichment Program. It’s called “Building Confidence & Self Esteem Through Self Hypnosis.” Here is a pretty inexpensive way to taste and learn hypnosis. I guide you (the students) to trance, and we set an instant trigger to return to that state. When YOU want, on YOUR terms, for YOUR purposes. It’s powerful. It’s pleasant. It’s amazing. Come and learn! We also learn well-forming goals so that they make sense for your life, and are attainable, truly attainable, and how to talk to the unconscious part of your mind. Persuasive talk. So cool!!!

More info. is here:

http://www.campusce.net/BC/course/course.aspx?C=11562&pc=1066&mc=1387&sc

It’s spread over two evenings. 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. October 10 & 17, 2012

Hot offer from Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP: A Self Hypnosis for Life Success Seminar

Here’s an announcement and an invitation to an exciting event this Saturday, Sept 29th. Michael and I are presenting a full day’s hypnotic adventure-an EXPERIENTIAL adventure. A self-hypnosis seminar aptly entitled “Self Hypnosis for Life Success.” It’s hands on. Body on. Mind on.

You can learn more here:  http://www.seattlenlptraining.com/Power-of-Mind-Hypnosis-and-NLP-Seminars.html

Our “early bird” special price ends midnight tomorrow. 9/25/12. Sign up now and get this training for $49. Thereafter, it’s $97.

It’s all about hypnosis – the truth, not the myths.

It’s all about hypnosis, experiencing it, and learning more: how the mind works, the mind-body connection, about the language of influence and how to talk effectively to your unconscious mind (and get it to do things you want for yourself), well-formed goals, how to hypnotize yourself on an ongoing basis, a full process for putting it all together for successful life changes!

Whatever your goal(s), weight loss, or motivation, or habit changes, or enhanced learning and creativity, the uses are as limitless as your own mind. Clients come into my office and pay a lot more to learn what I’m offering here for this incredibly low investment. Why? I want the world to know about hypnosis as a force for good and as a tool for self change. I know it! I live it! It’s powerful. It’s natural. It’s the best thing since sliced bread! It predates sliced bread.

It’s changed my life in so many ways: weight loss and more. I’ve used these tools to empower myself with confidence and motivation and enhanced learning to the point of becoming an entrepreneur and starting my own business. I’m creating success. Now. You can, too.

Amaze yourself, you are capable of so much more.

Here’s a door for you to open. And once you do, life will become so much more.

http://www.seattlenlptraining.com/Power-of-Mind-Hypnosis-and-NLP-Seminars.html

Here’s why you want to experience this magic live! Imagine describing the taste of chocolate to someone who has never tasted it. Imagine describing making love to someone who has never experienced it. You can read and learn ABOUT bike-riding, but what’s missing is that physical and emotional experience, the surge of exhilaration, the wind in your hair, the motion of moving through space, the balance. You need to experience certain things to really UNDERSTAND them. Hypnosis is like that! Come and experience it this Saturday!

This state of mind is a power, a force for positive change. You’ll walk out of the seminar room on Saturday evening with tools for success. Tool which you can use NOW. Immediately. To feel and be a different person, in ways you choose to become different. A self-enhanced person. You are in control.

It’s a spa for your mind!

Who wants stress release? If for no other reason, come and experience hypnosis for that like-no-other feeling of mental and physical relaxation. When my clients and students emerge from trance, they are “blissed out.” They’re looking at me like “I had no idea. Thank you! Thank you!” Here are some actual client comments about the experience of hypnosis: Gene from Mercer Island: “That was delightful.” Andy from Seattle: “Better than sex!” Jacqueline from Redmond: “I’ve never been that relaxed before in my entire life!”

Hypnosis is good stuff! You can get in on this opportunity to learn more now and attend our event at

http://www.seattlenlptraining.com/Power-of-Mind-Hypnosis-and-NLP-Seminars.html

You can sign up online or call us at (425) 564-8608 to get registered with the investment of just $49 if you act fast! Seats are limited, so act now if you want in!

Hope to see you this Saturday!

Want Success, Seattle? – NLP for Sales, Testimonial of Success

Sales Success – With the help of Seattle’s Mindworks NLP.

Candi of Mercer Island was seeking sales and business success!  She’s finding it.  In herself–with a new state of mind.  She attended our NLP for Sales one day seminar last week and began her education on the power of NLP to change how you think, feel, and what you can do.  She created her ideal sales state of mind, and guess what?  It works.

Here’s what Candi wrote:

“Hi Connie!!!  I had my best selling day yesterday!  Got congratulations from my boss and my whole team!  Thank you!  I am calm, confident, articulate, tenacious…THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!”   –Candi of Mercer Island

If you are feeling limited or unsuccessful, well, that problem is no problem.  There are tools for change.  Wonderful tools.  My primary tool is NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming (I’m a Licensed Trainer of NLP through Dr. Richard Bandler–the co-originator of NLP) and it’s amazingly powerful.

Michael and I are currently offering these “taster”  one day seminars.  Obviously, to Candi, the taste was delicious.  We have another one happening this Saturday.  It’s called:  NLP for Personal Change and Life Success.  As of this typing, there are only five seats still available.  You can sign up here if you’d like a taste of success.  http://www.seattlenlptraining.com.

As always, if you’d prefer expert guidance to your goals, I also offer one on one NLP blended with hypnotherapy sessions as well.  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net.

Hope to see you in a class of Mindworks NLP – Seattle NLP Training, or in my hypno chair one on one.

Warm Regards,
Connie

Does Your Hand Deserve Your Thumb?

Time to bloom.

I’m working with a girl right now whose father told her at a ripe impressionable age:  “you don’t deserve anything.”  One of the things her mind decided she didn’t deserve was health.  In her adult mind, she knows what her father MEANT for her to learn by that statement:  “you won’t be offered things on a silver platter, you have to work hard to achieve success.” BUT…what he said and what she heard, literally was:  YOU DON’T DESERVE ANYTHING.

Wow!  Her unconscious mind took that on board.  Absolutely literally.  What a terrible and damaging message–coming from someone who should be loving and nurturing.  I asked her yesterday if she deserved to breathe the air in the room, and I could see her internal struggle because she knew it should logically be “yes” yet she felt and believed it was “no.”  This blog entry is called:  “Does your hand deserve your thumb?”

I posed that question to my client yesterday, in trance.  “Does your hand deserve your thumb?”  We let her powerful unconscious mind percolate on what is natural, what is a part of us, and what is “deserved.”  I also asked her if a flower deserves sunshine, and to be nourished by rain and the nutrients in soil?  Does a flower deserve to bloom?  I sure think so!!  This lady is a flower who thinks she has no right to bloom.  I’m helping her to change her thinking–and her health!

Language is so much more powerful than people know.  One of the tragedies (and so unnecessary) of human life seems to be this parental business of installing negative and limiting and damaging beliefs in children.  The young mind has no conscious filter to block damaging ideas, like adults have.

A huge piece of my NLP and hypnotherapy work involves un-installing negative beliefs and re-installing power and possibility into lives.  I’m so happy this technology exists which creates healthy change so quickly and seamlessly.  I’m also so happy that I’ve been privileged to learn it, really learn it from the source of NLP himself, Dr. Richard Bandler, the best of the best of the best.

Unfortunately, I’m continually finding that other Seattle area hypnotists don’t have the skill set or the mind set for this work–and clients who have escaped their ineptitude come to me and tell me horror stories of non-helping and “hypnotists” even installing more limitations in them.  These unskilled ones are playing at being hypnotists, as a part time “I know enough to get by” kind of gig.  Luckily, they won’t be around for long, because they can’t deliver the results.

Go for quality.  Someone well trained and imaginative enough to understand the power of words to help and heal.

Warm Regards,
Connie

We did it again!  Mindworks Hypnosis has been selected to receive an award as “Best of Bellevue” for two consecutive years now.  The category in which we are being recognized:  Best Weight Loss and Control Programs.  I’m thrilled to be a two-time winner!

Press Release – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

It’s “Act Happy Week!” – The Chemistry of Success

 

Get happy with hypnosis and NLP

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

My calendar of events tells me it’s “Act Happy Week” beginning on March 19th.  Yay!  I’m ready!  I’m celebrating!!  Big time!  Are you?

I’ll tell you why I think you should participate in this as well.  When you choose to “act happy,” or “pretend” to be happy, you unleash all kinds of good chemicals in your body.  Pretty soon you’re not acting, you’re feeling and being happy.  Happy is good.  Happy leads a person into all manner of success making, improving health, relationships, even cognitive function, wealth.

Happy is the chemistry of success!   We got endorphins, we got oxytocins.  We got dopamine.  I don’t know what all.  I don’t need to know.  I can feel it and it’s good!

This is no stretch for me.  I’m happy pretty much all year long.  For those of you who have found happiness to be difficult, start now, with “Act Happy Week!”  Practice.  Smile, dance, laugh, and begin to feel good.

Yes, I’m extremely good at happy.  Why?  I’m a Licensed Trainer of NLP.  NLP is a methodology that offers shortcuts to creating new feelings in your body at will.  You can pump up your happy and hold onto it where it’s useful for your success.  Any time of year.  Why not?

Warm Regards,
Connie

3/14/12 & 5/9/12 : Two Chances to Trance for Goal Manifestation

Hypnosis is fun, Seattle! Hypnosis for goal manifestation!

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

I’ve offered this before, but more of a good thing is not enough.  I’m presenting two separate one-evening events at Bellevue College for those who’d like to make something happen in their lives.  A goal happen, in particular.  We can do that!  🙂

These are entertaining and experiential events for those who want to achieve something. That means you. That means all of us. Who doesn’t have goals? I don’t know any human tumbleweeds, people I meet want things and to accomplish things and achieve things. Here is a something SO COOL that works. Remember that old commercial, try it, you’ll like it. Try hypnosis. You’ll LOVE it.

Seats are still available for these one evening events at Bellevue College North! I offered this class before, and it was wonderful. Absolutely worth repeating from my vantage point, and worth experiencing from yours!!  It happens next month, March 14th. That’s a Wednesday. I hope to see you there!

You never stop learning! Not ever. That’s one of my core beliefs, and as such it leads to the possibility of creating continuously a life more in alignment with pleasure, joy, success, power, and so on. Learning gives you the ability to rudder your own ship. Learning is power. Learning is magic. Learning keeps your mind sharp and young.

Who wants an easy and FUN one-evening learning experience, which just happens to be amazingly useful as well? (And inexpensive.) I’m offering something new at Bellevue College, as part of the Personal Development Continuing Education program. Info:

Is Hypnosis the Holy Grail?

Find what you’re looking for, with hypnosis!

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

I’d like to share a story with you about a man in my Bellevue College hypnosis class this week.  The names are being masked to protect the real people involved.  Let’s call him SAM.  Hi, Sam.

Sam took my class.  He’s an older gentleman, who sat in the back of the room during my first lecture with arms folded and a scowl of disbelief on his face.  I was talking about the power and success of hypnosis.  His face was a poster child for “I don’t believe this AT ALL!  Bull-oney!”

It was comical to me, his expression and demeanor were so over-the-top.  I turned to him and said:  “You look skeptical.”  He immediately denied it.  “No, I’m open minded.”  “Wonderful!” I replied.  🙂

Anyway we had a group trance experience and afterwards students were commenting on the experience.  Sam denied that he had been hypnotized.  Hey, when you do this work day in and day out as I do, guess what?  You can recognize hypnosis.  Sam was hypnotized.  Very.

So, I teach my class, and I throw in a few suggestions during trance to speak to various goals that the students had expressed.  Sam’s was weight loss.  Sam also got his mind focused on weight loss during the in-class exercises on goal setting.

Next week completes the course.  Sam returned.  His whole attitude and demeanor had changed.  Why?  He had immediately had BEHAVIORAL CHANGES in his life, with no other source than the work we did in class.  He had already lost some weight to the point his wife commented on it to him!  He was drinking more water, eating less, and so on.  He was amazed.  Suddenly, Sam was a believer.  Hypnosis works!

Yes, it does.  At the end of the class, Sam was excited, pleased, enthusiastic, and he said to me:  “I think I’ve found the holy grail.”  People who are battling weight and have eating issues, yes, they do know the endless search for something that works.

The holy grail?  Perhaps.  🙂  Yes, you have found something wonderful, Sam, and yes, it’s going to lead you to attain your desires.

I don’t make a lot of money teaching at Bellevue College, I mostly do it to spread the good word on hypnosis.  The transformation in Sam’s face from “No!” to “Wow!” makes it all worth it for me.

More classes are coming up, by the way.  Check out my events page.

Warm Regards,
Connie
