involving or based on experience and observation: the experiential learning associated with employment.
This is not a magical course where you leave with amazing knowledge just by osmosis and assimilation.
You have to work for a week, and it is trial by fire!
Outlining what we will do
If you were going to teach me something, I would want you to:
- Let me know what you are going to do.
- Show me how you do it.
- Go over what you did.
- Let me do it
This is the method I use to teach stage hypnosis.
Before you join the group, you will have some homework.
- Transcribe an opening
- Learn an induction
We have limited time. You should know an induction before you come to Bootcamp.
The first boot camp October 2013 – Lumberton & Greenville, NC
Brian Varano – The Hawaiian Hurricane was my first boot camp student in 2013. He has performed in Las Vegas and now does multiple county fairs across the USA
Each night we go to dinner and discuss the shows with the group.
When you leave this training, you can say, “I did entire shows,” and when a GIG offer comes in, you can say ‘YES.’
I designed this training I wish I had gotten when I started.
- Fresh audiences Show after Show.
- Volunteers that have never been hypnotized
- Real-life stage hypnosis performance training
- We do ‘clean shows’ because we are at fairgrounds.
- using an assistant
- respecting your audience and volunteers
- working with the problem of no one volunteering
- no one going under
… you will hear horror stories
You do shows!
You will have the choice of:
- Doing an entire show on your own
- Doing routines and portions of other people’s shows.
- Doing shows together with other students.
“Alan, it was just really an amazing experience, the real important part for me was that on stage time, experience in front of live audiences, and to be able to work on routines. … Really a lot of value, you covered a lot of topics, also the time you covered on the sound equipment was great, I know I got a lot out of that! I appreciate your patience with our group, and it was a relaxed and fun time.”
— Jeff Harpring – firstname.lastname@example.org
Getting you on stage over and over again as many times as possible is the goal.
This training was unique – then others began copying my format. You can take their training, or go with the one with the most experience. Many of the students I have coached in the last 5 years now make thousands of dollars doing shows. Boot Camp can pay for itself multiple times over.
