Stage Hypnosis Training

Experiential Coaching

This is not a magical course where you leave with amazing knowledge just by osmosis and assimilation.

You have to work for a week, and it is trial by fire!

Stage Hypnosis Training

Outlining what we will do

If you were going to teach me something, I would want you to

  • Tell me what you are going to do
  • 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. I can furnish transcripts of other pre-talk and inductions, but you should transcribe one yourself.

Each night we go to dinner and discuss the pointers with the group
When you leave this training, you can say, “I did entire shows” and when a gig offer comes in, you can say ‘YES’

I designed the training I wish I had gotten when I started out.

You get

  • Fresh audiences Show after Show
  • Volunteers that have never been hypnotized
  • Real life stage hypnosis performance training
  • We do ‘clean shows’ because we are at a fairgrounds

We discuss

  • costumes
  • lights
  • safety
  • using an assistant 
  • respecting your audience and volunteers
  • hecklers
  • working with the problem of no one volunteering
  • no one going under and you will hear horror stories

We do shows!

You will have the choice of:

  • Doing an entire show on your own
  • Doing routines and portions of my shows
  • Working in other student’s shows
  • Working together

“Alan, it was just really an amazing experience, 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.”

Jeff Harpring –

Getting you on stage over and over again, as many times as possible is the goal.

This training was unique – but then two other hypnotists began copying my format. You can take their training, or go with the one with the most experience. Many of the students I have coached in the last 5 years now make thousands of dollars doing shows. Boot Camp can pay for itself multiple times over.
