I cannot believe it, I received your wonderful DVD this morning, and already I memorizing the arm catalepsy as it looks so great. I nearly always use the Elman or a variation as it is so effective, but this one looks so efficient.
Practiced with my Wife just now who is an awful subject and requires 7+2 or similar confusion technique inductions, but although I got some of it wrong she had her eyes almost closed before she started here usual resistant laughing! She then proceeded to teach me what I was doing wrong after seeing your DVD. She told me not to crush her wrist - just a light touch :-)
Also I had a great feeling of Erickson as I listened to your voice saying "that's right" That phrase is one I use all the time but your voice sort of matched perfectly the voice in his famous old video where he does the arm levitation with a woman in his office.
I have Rosen's "My voice will go with you" If you remember the story in it where Milton was working with a lady with a sexual fear he used the phrase "You can take a vicious pleasure" I actually used that with a client and she immediately changed her outlook on her relationship! Next time I saw here she was on cloud nine and told me she was hoping to have a fourth child!
Your conscious/unconscious voice change - that is a great technique, so simple and yet it had never occurred to me.
I can't thank you enough for making the DVD and providing your experience and skills to everyone. You truly are an excellent teacher, I just wish I had been in NY when I decide to begin training.
I have added a link on my links page promoting your site and DVD.
My very best wishes, and I hope to meet up with you someday in NY or at a conference perhaps.
