Michael Yapko - 2013 Plenary
"The Expansive Spirit of Hypnosis"
Here's a plenary if you're an ASCH member,
An exciting lecture and one to remember;
Just as an elephant never forgets...
Did you know Michael Yapko keeps them as pets?
(You might read that statement and let out a chortle,
Yes, this talk explores Doing Hypnosis vs. Being Hypnotic,
But it spans many topics wise, pragmatic, exotic
And explains the broader SPIRIT of the field,
Giving advice and perspective for practitioners to wield
He asks and delves into:
-Why is hypnosis not mainstream?
-Why are DIRECT and INDIRECT a paradoxical team?
-How hypnosis can enhance life pleasure...
Transcending our craving to find its measure
-About the Artistry of what to say and when,
That clinical skill is the egg, and experience -the hen.
-Being Hypnotic is an Attitude, with voice and gestures powerful tools,
While scripts and rituals are just secondary rules.
-Depression-suggestion, recommendations-for-patients, and mindfulness too,
Watch this lecture and you'll learn a thing or twenty-two.
But I say too much. To know this Plenary...
Watch it and become a Hypnosis Superhero!
