What Is Transpersonal Hypnotherapy?
Transpersonal Hypnotherapy is an orientation toward hypnotherapy that is shared by an increasing number of practitioners who are ready to take the concept of holism to the next logical step. Where holism takes body, mind, and spirit into consideration, transpersonalism goes beyond the individual to consider the deep connections between human beings and our capacity to transcend the limitations of a three-dimensional consciousness.
Transpersonal Hypnosis has also been described as Spiritually Centered Hypnosis; your spiritual beliefs meeting the earthly world for change and healing. It was described by Dr. Allen Chips as “a Crossing of the Body, Mind & Spirit.” It incorporates, not only the body and mind as in clinical hypnosis, but the spirit as well.
The sessions are extremely client based, personalized for the client to address any aspect of their life and the effective relationship between the mind, body and spirit. There is no religious orientation suggested, but instead an unfoldment that synchronistically brings those insights and experiences that lead to the client’s highest good- physically, mentally, emotionally, and/or spiritually. Usually the client (after an extensive interview) requests one of or a series of the following sessions:
