Who Is This Course For?

This course is for those who want to learn from Cal Banyan himself. It is a basic to advanced hypnosis certification course and as such we do not presume that you have had any previous training. But if you have trained elsewhere you will find plenty more to learn. This course is for you if:

Students Practicing An Instant Induction

Lot's of time scheduled to practice hypnosis techniques you learn in class.

Look at me right here
"Look at me right here."
Press on my hand and close your eyes
"Press on my hand. Close your eyes."

"Even I could understand it!"
Josephine Lim Zhen Ru

"The course is comprehensive and the materials are super abundant. For a "non-English speaking" participant, this course is relatively easy to understand."
Sapta Dwikardana, Ph.D., Bandung, Indonesia

"The material taught in this course gives the students the power to change lives; their own and those of others. Everything about the course speaks of the care and energy that went into putting together a program that transmits a great deal of knowledge in a relatively short period of time. The instant inductions alone are worth the price of the course, but the depth of material goes beyond anything I imagined."
Vadim Timoshpolsky, B.A. West Hartford, CT

"The course was very thorough, the 'process' is a lifesaver. Because of the presentation, it was very understandable. Because of the process it helps build confidence, and gives a therapist ALL the tools they need to work with clients."
Randy Cook, Elmwood, WI

This Class Is NOT just A How-To-Hypnotize Class. This is a How-To-Do-Successful-Hypnosis-and-become-a-"1%'er" Certification Course!

The Future Belongs to 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®! Get certified in these elite forms of hypnosis and self-hypnosis and join the best hypnosis providers in the world. Have you ever been to a class, seminar or lecture that is supposed to be for intermediate or advanced practitioners, and then spend most of your time listening to beginning level information? Not this class. Yes, we will provide adequate time for learning the basics, but then, once we know that everyone "up to speed," the course moves into the advanced material. However, even our "basic" material may be new most hypnotists trained elsewhere before taking this certification course! This is why our course is considered an elite certification course. You are going to eat, drink and sleep hypnosis for 10 days, and learn from Cal Banyan himself.

"It challenged everything I know about hypnotherapy and its effectiveness. I feel confident about going back to my clients and really giving them what they are searching for. Extremely well organized manual and presentation. Stayed on track so that we covered everything we needed to learn."
Paula Anderson, Glendale, CA

"I'm impressed! [The] 5-PATH® approach to therapy is complete, concise, elegant and highly effective. I can't wait to implement it. And, if that wasn't enough, 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® is the crown jewel. 7th Path™ is for everyone, everyone, everyone! It is a daily practice I am eager to incorporate into my life. This stuff is GOLD!"
Anne Shuman, BA, C.Ht, CNLPP, Wilmington, Delaware, U.S.A.

"I encourage anyone considering learning hypnosis to take 7th-PATH™ and 5-PATH® before any other hypnosis training. It's a wonderful and very structured course!"
Anne Murphy, Little Britain, CANADA

"The course material contains the answers to many of the questions I have experienced in my 8 years as a Hypnotherapist"
Joe Packard, M.S., Bellingham, MA

Mr. Banyan's hypnosis training system gives you what you need to be much more successful and accomplishes that in several ways because:

The Advanced System Is Called Five-Phase Advanced Transformational Hypnosis, Or 5-PATH®

When you take this professional hypnotism course you will learn:

These systems have been developed after thousands of hours of hypnosis experience. The systems that you will learn are designed to provide you and your clients with consistently high levels of success.

"The course is good and enriching, especially the 5-PATH® therapy. It is a good and powerful tool in helping smokers and overweight persons to quit smoking and reduce their body weight"
Sapii Bin Kasamin, Malaysia

"This class has pulled together so many methods I've learned and put the new tools into a useable format. 5-PATH® provides clarity to me as a hypnotist. Just do it, you'll see what I mean!"
Cynthia Brooks, BSN, CH Sullivan, NH

"I appreciate 5-PATH® as being a full comprehensive method to have guidelines which will allow you to establish a practice with all aspects, from intensive content to business structure."
Marcell Osterwalder, Lugano, Switzerland

"The 5-PATH® is an organized approach to hypnosis, much needed in the profession. This is amazing!"
Maryann Boulton, Staten Island, NY

Emphasis of this hypnosis training will be placed on practical application and results.

In addition to providing you with important information and techniques, you will get to practice them, especially instant and rapid inductions, use of convincers and age regression. Each student will have the opportunity to be hypnotized and learn self-hypnosis. Experiencing hypnosis and self-hypnosis is an essential to becoming a well rounded hypnotist. Hypnosis and/or self-hypnosis will be experienced by each student nearly every day of the course.

Here is why it is an experiential course:

"Excellent as a skill building and personal development course. 5-PATH® brings the professional level of hypnotherapy to new and significantly higher standards. The course materials are complete and well developed. The blend of lecture, experience, practice and videos was effective, appropriate and well balanced."
Steve Gruber, BS, MA Quebec, CA

"I found the course to be very comprehensive and practical. The combination of education and practice enables graduates to get the skills and confidence they need to go out and start straight away. The 7th-PATH™ program ensures they won't be taking too much personal baggage into the therapy room!"
Katherine Perry, BA

"Having attended other hypnosis/hypnotherapy training courses, this is by far the very best course I've attended. The material is well organized, the instruction is very thorough and the numerous practice sessions allowed me to cement the concepts into my brain."
Mike Bowers, N. Canton, OH

7th Path Self-Hypnosis® - A Mind-Body-Spirit Approach To Self-Hypnosis

You will be able to learn and use 7th Path™, a unique form of self-hypnosis that was designed to be used with a holistic, mind-body-spirit approach. This perspective adds tremendously to the power of self-hypnosis. You will learn how to use it personally, or to teach it to your clients.

"I was unprepared for the deep impact 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® has made on me. I have taken numerous professional trainings and this training is exceptional in that it's created to penetrate to the core of your being and to enlighten your soul. 7th-PATH™ is a gift to humanity. Its divine messages hone to potential to change our world."
Donna Bird, LCSU, Saratoga Springs, NY

7th Path Self-Hypnosis® is a phenomenally powerful hypnosis system that works like an antivirus software program for the human mind. It allows the practitioners to clear out old blockages that they may not even have been aware of, and then program themselves for success. And, you will be able to do this for yourself as well.

The following is a course outline of the National Guild of Hypnotists Approved Certification Training as designed by Cal Banyan at the Banyan Hypnosis Center For Training & Services, Inc.

Total hours for this course are 100 over 10 days. Class time will consist of lecture and supervised practical work, which will constitute 80 hours of the course. Assignments (practice and preparation) outside of class will make up 20 hours of the training. Home assignments will be reviewed during class.

The course is made up of two sections: Level I, consists of Professional Application of Hypnosis, and Level II, consists of Professional Application of Hypnosis, Self-Hypnosis and Setting Up Your Practice.

The course outline is not always followed exactly. Because of the instructor-student interaction we move through some part of the material faster or slower depending on the needs of the particular class. For example the class may have more questions about one subject area, and when this occurs more time will be given to that area, while other areas may not need additional attention and then the instructor will move more quickly through that subject area. It is our experience that each class has its own interests and and when possible the instructor will structure the class to best meet the needs of the class as a whole.
