Stage Hypnosis Training

Experiential Coaching

experiential |ikˌspirēˈen(t)SH(ə)l|
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, 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.
    • Please 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.

In 2013, Brian Varano “The Hawaiian Hurricane” was my first student. He has since performed in Las Vegas and multiple county fairs across the USA.

We go to dinner each night and discuss the shows with the group.
When you leave this training, you can say, “I did entire shows.” When a GIG offer comes in, you can say ‘YES.’

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 with other students.

“…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.”
