Default Re: Regarding Induction

Mr Lankton,

As you state, from the Ericksonian view hypnosis does not implant, make, or do anything to anyone. Others view hypnosis in a more conventional way where the hypnotist has the control and the client is more passive. From a phenomenological perspective, are these really two different versions of hypnosis (i.e. hypnosis 1 and hypnosis 2). In the most abstract, would it be safe to say that there are really as many versions of hypnosis as there are people who are hypnotized? Is it really possible to generalize about the experience of hypnosis? You have co-created a version of hypnosis that would seem to make people much less apprehensive about participating in it.
