Looking Forward to the August HypnoMunch

It’s just five days away, now. I’ve had so much fun at past HypnoMunches. And we always have lots of new people showing up, as well as returning faces. This time around I have specific RSVPs from several people who haven’t made it in the past, including old friends who’ve been away, folks who joined us for the first time at the Study Group meeting a few weeks ago, and complete strangers who will be coming to their very first NEHG event. Since everyone who shows up is our special guest of honor please be sure to make them all feel welcome!

If you haven’t RSVP’d, and you will be attending, please do so on the FetlLife event or contact me by email (Boston [at] NEHG [dot] info.) You can also send questions to me that way, or post them on the official discussion thread (also on FetLife.)

Looking forward to meeting new folks, and catching up with old friends, not to mention lots of hypno-talk and good food.

Study Group Meeting #2 (September 3rd, 2013)

So, now that NEHG is fully active in the Metro Boston area, we have the Study Group! We meet once a month to share hypnosis skills and knowledge. The second meeting will be September 3rd. If you want to attend, RSVP to the event on FetLife or contact Boston [at] NEHG [dot] info. Also, check out the official discussion thread on our Fetlife group. (You must be logged into FetLife to use either link.)

This month, with the basics under our belts, we’ll be covering the most important skill a kinky hypnotist might never use, how to Handle an Abreaction. We’ll also dispel some of the Myths of Hypnosis. I’ll demonstrate an Eye Fixation Induction and talk a bit about what makes them work well, and maybe also the Floating in Space deepener. If time allows, I’ll also share the Pop Quiz trick that Wiseguy showed some of us in early August, for a little fun with memory play (in a safe and limited fashion.)

In addition to hands-on practice with the induction (and probably the deepener and the Quiz game) we will have time to practice freely, ask questions, and do something, or see an experienced hypnotist do something, or have something done to you that you are interested in. Questions, of course, to Boston [at] NEHG [dot] info.

NEHG: Boston’s first Study Group (Tuesday, August 6, 2013)

Other events are forthcoming, but I’m posting this one to experiment with the style I want and get one up before I started putting out the word about the new NEHG.info.

DESCRIPTION:

We’re getting together to share skills, develop our hypnotic abilities, and explore the possibilities of hypnosis. NEHG started out with a bunch of folks trying to learn to be hypnotists, or to be better hypnotists, and it’s time to start again with a new generation of hypnotists. We’re going to start out working from @Wiseguy35’s book Mind Play, which you won’t need for the first meeting. We’ve got some options to keep costs down, including a special offer for those who attend the Study Group from the author himself. We’ll be sharing our insights, techniques, and experiences. We’ll be digging up whatever sources we can use to learn about this amazing skill.

If you don’t yet know how to hypnotize someone, please let me know. From time to time as needed I’ll bring newcomers into the deep secrets of hypnosis. Beyond that, the group is designed to suit hypnotists at all levels of skill.

Here’s the Fetlife event listing (You can RSVP there) and here’s the official discussion thread (you can learn details of our discount on Mind Play there.)

Subjects are strongly encouraged to come, too. We will always need people to practice on!

Any questions? Send email to Boston [at] NEHG [dot] info or contact PhotoJoseph on FetLife

NEHG is the New England Hypnosis Group, a NELA SIG.
