With ourselves and our clients, the integration between mindfulness and hypnosis offers unique opportunities to enhance creative collaboration between conscious awareness and unconscious intuition and creativity. The aim of Mindfulness is to evoke in the subject a non-judgmental posture of acceptance of what happens moment by moment. The aim of hypnosis is to evoke from subjects the embedded resources to give them back their natural resilience and their drive to change.
The complimentary outcomes are reached involving and integrating patients’ conscious and unconscious. Integrating the mindfullness and hypnosis can help you to calibrate the technology of radical acceptance with the technology of change. This integration invites invites you to talk to the conscious as well to the unconscious, and to awaken in your client the natural wisdom that knows that before any change is necessary to accept one’s own imperfection and the awaken creativity and emotional intelligence.
During this workshop, you will have the chance to practice some exercises of mindfulness proposed in a hypnotic way.
You will be able to describe at least 3 differences and similarities between mindfulness and hypnosis. And you will be able to use 3 or more hypnositic language patterns to increase the effectiveness of mindfulness practices.
