Mountains of the Night
Bruce Taylor

Everyone has a journey they must take which ultimately defines their lives. To take it and fully embrace the journey brings to one the riches of a life well-lived. That is not easy.

Using the metaphor of hiking, I explore my own Mountains of the Night, dealing with a chronic and potentially life-threatening illness, confronting the impact of a profoundly dysfunctional family—it is like being on a trail through the rugged mountains of one’s soul, through the cliffs of despair, the storms of doubt, the false summits of false hopes, yet always ascending, ascending, we must go on, no matter what the trail of life brings us, no matter what the obstacles, we must go on.

If we turn back, we would never come to know What Could Be, what our true strengths are—we would never, in the end, know the true destination of our lives, which, if we do go on in spite of the hardships, inevitably brings us into the Realms of the Gods, Fates, our place in history and above all, coming to know Grace and our Nobility and what it means to be vitally and truly–alive!

Bruce Taylor, also know as “Mr. Magic Realism,” was born in 1947 in Seattle, Washington, where he currently lives. He was a student at the Clarion West Science Fiction/Fantasy writing program at the University of Washington, with such writers as Robert Silverberg, Avram Davidson, Ursula K.

Learn the Secrets of Scriptless Trance, the Power of Intention and the Subconscious Mind
Alan Anderson

Milton Erickson believed that it is appropriate for the therapist to go into trance. “I go into trances so that I will be more sensitive to the intonations and inflections of my patients’ speech. And to enable me to hear better, see better.” – Milton H. Erickson

In this interactive workshop we will be discussing and practicing up-state trance and the use of the therapist’s conscious and subconscious intention to achieve the clients desired outcome. As well we will be practicing the extended use of the “pre-talk” and interview process, and how to use this time with your client to deliver commands to your client. Alan will share his version of a “well formed outcome” worksheet and discus its use in collecting powerful images, words and feelings for later use in scriptless trance and conversational hypnotherapy.

This is a great opportunity to learn and practice techniques that will allow you to assist clients to concur their most difficult challenges. Be sure to bring your clinical questions and challenges for group practice and discussion.
