Ever since the Gutenberg Press was invented there have been printed pamphlets. These pamphlets were usually handed out to people one-by-one as they passed by on the street. They were used by politicians, merchants and religious groups and, in fact, by any individual or group who wanted to reach other people at the "grass roots" level. Pamphlets have helped to fill the gap between the spoken word and a whole book on a topic.
For several years as a counsellor and hypnotherapist I have used hand pamphlets and now I am very excited about using e-pamphlets to easily and quickly disseminate and broadcast information to thousands of people on psychological concepts and healing techniques. They can copy and carry these pamphlets with them and refer to them during their day-to-day affairs. Also they can send them to a friend very easily.
I hope that you find my e-pamphlets useful and helpful in your navigation through your life and through your daily joys and struggles.

The surprise gleaned from receiving the contents of the Continue Reading
In 1915, Sigmund Freud explicitly condemned the word, “sub-conscious”. He clearly indicated that there is no “subterranean consciousness”. He posited that we are either conscious OR NOT. When we are not aware that we are fully conscious he called that the “unconscious” or “pre-conscious” state. Many New Age practitioners, and particularly hypnotherapists, erroneously believe and Continue Reading
Two years ago, I had the good fortune to participate in a wonderful experiential hypnotherapy training seminar on Cape Cod, sponsored by the Harvard University Medical School. The focus of the seminar was the integration of Eastern meditation traditions with self-hypnosis and visualization practices from Western psychotherapy traditions. The Harvard Professor of Psychology who led Continue Reading
