    Cal – Art and Hypnosis a beautiful marriage!
    Thanks for showing the book. I am working on more images using the Model of the Mind format… perhaps others have art to show and we could have a gallery showing at the next NGH Convention… Art is a powerful form of communication that we hypnotists need to embrace… if you agree, please put a bug in Dr Damon’s ear about creating a place for art/hypnosis at the convention. If you don’t, I understand.

    Regarding another title for Hypnosis… I proposed the question a couple years ago on one of these blogs. I do think that if the medical community were to identify it with an acronym like CFB (critical factor bypass) it may have a fresh chance at clinical acceptance. A doctor may feel better about suggesting that a patient see a CFB Specialist rather than going to the hypnotist. Of course the innate power of the word hypnosis would be diminished but the prodical could become more acceptable and widespread. I’ll always be a Hypnotist, but I wouldn’t mind area doctors referring patients to me as a CFB Specialist.
