I'm interested in beginning to learn a hypnosis stage act. Where should I begin? Are there books or other things I can turn to, or would it be best to find someone to teach me?

Suggestions? Advice?

Do you have Deeper and deeper from Jonathan Chase?

This book is about stage hypnosis and is a good begining.

RIP is a wonderful book indeed, but it is'nt about stage hypnosis. It is about Impromptu hypnosis.

I saw in another thread that Richard Nongard just released a set of Dvds on a complete stage-hypnosis act. This would be another possibility.

Thanks for the mention Pakar. The book is not about stage hypnosis. But it will get you hypnotizing Smile

I am a fan of Deeper and Deeper. It gave me the basic structure to get started with stage hypnosis. Geoff Ronnings book on the subject get's some great reviews from those in the industry.

Nongard and Cerbonne have many DVD's about various aspects of stage hypnosis.

To learn stage hypnotism without a personal instructor:

Get Richard Nongard's stage hypnotism course...half the price of Ronning's and I understand from people I deeply trust it is better. I have seen Ronning's course and in the past recommended it. Though I have not seen Richard's I can safely recommend it based on his other products I have seen and the very high recommendations of some here who make a living with stage hypnotism.

Get Ronning's book, "Ronning Guide to Modern Stage Hypnosis". It is most of his course in book form, at a far cheaper price. Very well done...the new "Bible" of stage hypnotism.

Get Anthony Jaquin's "Reality is Plastic". It is basic but does it very, very well. It will remove the fear hypnotists get sometimes...that they won't be able to hypnotize anyone. If someone came up to you, found out you were a hypnotist, and said, "...hypnotize me..." you would know what to do and how to do it.

Those three products will get you as ready as you can without personal instruction. Then absorb some youtube, both good and bad. Finally, go to see some hypnotists.

Good luck.

Take in-person training. Then use all of the books and DVDs to amplify and enhance what you learned. PLUS, take courses in:
acting
stage presence
public speaking

If you really want to be professional, you might also study:
advertising and publicity
accounting for business

don't forget the study of electronics so you can make "instant" recordings of the show and sell them to people in the audience.

I would also reccomend Richard's "Little black book of stage hypnosis secrets". It's great!

- I agree with the training suggestion. Books will give you ideas for new techniques, but a book can´t tell you what you´re doing wrong.
If you never fail, you're not trying hard enough.

Well, not totally true Smile Without live training, it will just take considerably longer to figure out what one is doing wrong Smile

Agreed!! Guys, I started off doing this the long-wrong way. I didn't know any better years ago. Go back through some of my old posts regarding my endeavors. While there is a plethora of good info out there to help you on your way, nothing beats hands on live training.

I still buy books, DVD's and go to other people's live shows. It shares new ideas and techniques. I see what works for some people that doesn't work foor me.....and vice-versa. I see things that help improve my shows and things to stay away from.

To just touch the tip of the iceburg, we have all seen the " belt becomes a snake " routine. Did you stop to think that this is something you shouldn't do to an older person with a possible heart condition? It may seem like common sense now that you just read it, but, was that really in your forethought? If you are new to this art, probably not.-Shane

I learned the art of hypnosis from Anthony Jacquin last year.
It really changed my world.
For example, today the room the participant had been in, completeley vanished (ok, it came back, of course) ...

Isn't Hypnosis the same regardless if you are doing it on stage? Is "Staged" Hypnosis different then Hypno-therapy?

Don't you use the same methods? How do they differ? To me, logically there should be the same.

Jerry,

One good source that would answer your question - and MANY more - is Richard Nonegard's book Inductions and Deepeners.

Namaste,

Stage Hypnosis and Staged Hypnosis are completely different things.
