Dear Dorothy & Pat,
I want to thank you, as well as all of the instructors at Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy, for providing me the opportunity to change my life. When I went to the September 2006 Open House, little did I realize that signing up for that first class, Hypnosis 101, would not only produce profound inner change, but deep friendships as well. We all need cheerleaders in life, and it was fun and joyful to experience my own success, as well as being a part of everyone else’s success in class.
Hypnosis is about empowerment. As we give our clients the tools to encourage their own self-empowerment, we ourselves become empowered. It is an awesome cycle that keeps perpetuating and growing. It is profoundly humbling to be part of a community that affects positive change by coming from the heart and in doing so, allowing others to do the same in their lives.
Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy is not only about teaching hypnosis; it is about opening up it’s students minds to the myriad of possibilities that empowerment offers. Assisting others in self-empowerment, whether that be pain management, stress reduction, self-esteem, past life regression, forgiveness, phobia release, etc., is fulfilling work!
For me personally, Palo Alto School of Hypnotherapy has given me the impetus to study (and share) other non-traditional avenues in which hypnosis is being used to facilitate inner growth. As a matter of fact, a small group of us who went through the classes together discovered that we all harbored the same secret dream…that of starting a healing center. It was not lost on any us that the Universe has a way of bringing together the right people at the right time. So, to that end, as a group, we are currently discussing how we can make this dream come true by working together. Of course, what we have learned about hypnosis will be a mainstay, with each of us bringing to the table what we consider to be our niche in the field.
Thank you for providing a holistic forum that fosters education, inner growth, mentoring, and encourages us to take these gifts out into world. Continue your wonderful work!!
