Friday, July 8th, at 7:00 pm “The 6 Steps of the Elman Induction Process”

The name Dave Elman is iconic in modern hypnotherapy and the famous “Elman Induction” is still taught around the world nearly fifty years after his passing.

Many, possibly most, hypnotherapists believe they understand the Elman Induction, yet they treat it as a script rather than as the dynamic process it is intended to be. This month we’ll look at, and practice, the six process steps that make up this famous, often misunderstood induction. Whether you want to add this powerful tool to your skill set, or perhaps see a familiar tool in a new way, this evening is for you.

Shawn Summers is a certified hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner, and the current president of the Washington Chapter of the National Guild of Hypnotist. Through his years as a martial arts instructor, he has honed his ability to distill information and, through a variety of approaches, achieve knowledge transfer to his students, increasing their personal capabilities.

Come join us this Friday, July 8th, at 7:00 pm for “The 6 Steps of the Elman Induction Process”



Our meetings are held on the second Friday of each month, except for August and December. The August and December meetings are held on the first Friday of the month.

The meetings are from 6:30 PM to 9 PM. We will have a “Social Happy Hour” from 6:30 to 7:00, where you have the opportunity to meet and network with your fellow your hypnotic colleagues.

Leading speakers share their experience an array of topics related to hypnosis and NLP, where you have the opportunity to improve your skills and business practices.

Come join us and learn what hypnosis and the NGHWA is all about! You’ll be glad you did! We welcome you to participate in our meetings and events.

Our meetings are open to the general public. There is a $10/meeting fee for non-members to attend NGHWA meetings.
