I was wanering I anyone knows any hypnosis teaching DVDS for a fairly low price, all the ones I've seen on the net are over 100 dollars and I just don't have that kind of money to spend. I've studied several hypnosis teaching books by people such as Tom Silver and others but I'd really likle to see a video of how to perform inductions, stage routines, hypnotherapy, etc. Anyone know of any?

I think Luke Jermay's DVD is still in production... maybe due out in the next month or so. There is another thread on it here somewhere but it went somewhat off topic. The view is that it was based on Dave Elman's techniques but I couldn't quite work out how that was derrived at.

Nothing can replace personal, classroom instruction or mentoring. A DVD or a book cannot give you the necessary feedback on what you are doing that is SO essential in this particular area of performance and human interaction.

Agree completely with Lee.
I suggest you to take a good course and become a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.
Also, if you want to perform a stage hypnotism show then look at the regulation for each city/state to avoid any problem with the law, ok.

Unfortunately we still have some issues at my town.
Based on Chapter 485 statutes of Florida, there is a lot of miss understanding and it’s very difficult to get a permit for these shows.

Also, it’s difficult to get a good coverage in your insurance.

Maybe now it’s easier than 5 years ago.

In Texas you have to have at least a bachelor's degree in psychology to practice hypnotism in any form.

Still, in a state that executes jaywalkers just for fun, I have never heard of the hypnotism law being enforced.

I wouldn't worry about it...there may be laws on the books but they are meaningless for all practical purposes.

I don't know Florida but I would ignore the "permit" and go ahead anyway. One of many things I noticed about that law is their definition of hypnotism includes advertising.

I have lost a few shows in the past to Bible-thumpers who think I am the hypnotist/satan coming after their virginal daughters. Curiously, with only one exception, I was rehired for palm reading! That exception wanted handwriting analysis. But I've never been stopped by a hypnotism law.

But I wander...I wouldn't worry about any "laws" unless you have specific information they will enforce it.

I am not interested in the "laws", I would be very interested to see the last "procecution" of doing a hypnosis show.

I know strange laws exist, but are they enforced?

I have to agree with both from above, even though a lot of Clubs/Theater managers still bother with permits from the city as a requirement to cover their back.

The question was, where can I find low cost DVD's?
Terry Stokes, Michael Johns (of Las Vegas) and myself have a number of videos.
Michael and I have one that focuses on thw whole stage show, then I co-teach with Michael Johns his Las Vegas Stage Shwo Induction and on another video I co-teach with Terry Stokes. Awesome videos.

nongard, since youve made instructional DVD's I'd like to ask your opinion on self taught hypnosis

My opinion is that almost every learning process starts with self awareness and books or reading. In the past in the form of books, in the present more and more often through DVD. Books and DVD's are usually the starting point for learning, people generally move on to mentoring or classes, or a commbination if they are serious about learning. Learning is a lifelong process, I still take hypnosis classes (NGH conventions) and still buy books and DVD's from others to facilitate my learning in both clinical and stage hypnotism.
If we follow Lees logic we should STOP the presses and no longer publish the works of Ormond McGill, or Milton Erickson becasue someone might learn from a book? We should take learning DVD's off the market, and just all go to class together? Makes no sense to me.

Obviously an extreme view from one who sells things to suppliment income.

So lets get away from extreames, and just talk about reality for a bit shall we?

The reality is you are correct. Yep I said it. I agree, most all learning starts with curiosity that brings us to books and in this day of digital information to the DVD. I agree here actually, and think that without this ability to nurture a curiosity, then we may not be able to develop another generation of interested.

So to ban all of it is idiotic in my view.

BUT (you knew it had to come right?) I think that when we make the leap to take people and their welfare in our hands, that we need a bit more than a book or a DVD to help us find out what is the right way and what is the wrong way to do things. I am not saying spend 40 years, I am not saying spend a weekend, I put no time limit on it as I have seen guys who have been doing it for 30 years who are clueless, and some who started weeks ago I am amazed at what they pick up. There is not a definite time to put on it.

You will have many advantages if you find a person to guide you along, it is tough to argue this.

So in short I think it goes like this. To nurture interest and further curiosity, then indeed books and DVD's are a fantastic tool. When you want to move to the point at which you have the well being of another in your charge, get some help with that part?

This all sounds very reasonable to me.

I don't think we disagree Danny...
and so I fail to see my "extreame" point?
The extreame point is saying you can't learn hypnosis (or shouldn't learn) from a video. Videoas are a GREAT starting point OR a point to hone new skills and learn from the ideas of others.

I have never met anyone yet who bought a DVD and started tomorrow doing stage shows or doing clinical hypnosis. I also think MOST people (99.9%) that take a live class, don't start doing shows tomorrow. For most people learning is a process of books, DVD's, seminars, mentoring, and practice. Why would someone be opposed to books or DVDs to facilitate the learning process?

There are a ZILLION hypnosis books (see Amazon) and a zillion therapy books out there. People learn from texts, dvd's etc. adapt it to real life. Anyone doing hypnosis should have a wide variety of learning experiences and will. DVD's, a weekend class, or whatever is always a starting point for anyone. Anyone who takes the position that Hypnosis is so risky there shouldnt be books or DVD's instructing people is nutty. And at the same time, I can't think of any author who would advocate learning ONLY from a book or DVD.

I have seen the one day wonders. Several on this very web site claim that is the best way to do it.

As for "extreme" I truly meant not to offend. I do think we are in agreement. That was why I went to such great lengths to explain. See my point is even with a live class, the next day you are NOT ready to work. Although that is how they are sold.

No biggie, like you said, we agree, so no need to argue over the small stuff.
