The combination of Buddhist philosophy and practices, hypnosis, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a powerful antidote for dealing with whatever life sends your way.

Certified hypnotherapist Jack Elias has blended these approaches into an accessible and practical framework for living a magical life—from skillfully navigating personal and workplace relationships to overcoming harmful patterns and addictions.

Through lectures, discussions, and exercises you learn to:

  • Transform fears into healing and painful memories into powerful resources
  • Dehypnotize yourself and wake up from harmful trance states
  • Recognize the five levels of story to dissolve any problem
  • Unravel the 11 types of confusion that create unnecessary suffering
  • Utilize your bad habits to bring your best self to any situation
  • Keep your breath and body fearless with three reminders
  • Cultivate skillfulness, joy, and gratitude
  • Connect to your inner power, intelligence, and strength

Anyone looking for clarity about their sense of purpose in life is welcome—no previous experience is necessary.
