October 2012
Tustin, California Held in Tustin
Instructed by Calvin D. Banyan, MA
National Guild of Hypnotists, Board Certified Hypnotist (BCH) and Certified Instructor (CI) and Banyan Hypnosis Center for Training & Services, Inc. Instructor

“I am immensely grateful for my experience in this class. It helped me grow up and get on with my life, letting go of old traumas that were controlling my life. As a result, I no longer need anti-depressants. I feel self-empowered and eager to help others.” C. B., B.S.
Laguna Beach, CA

“I am actually hesitant in writing this because I do not believe I have the words to give Cal Banyan's powerful teachings justice. However, as a previous counselor I realize that I may have had the training to assist others in helping themselves in certain areas, but learning 5-PATH® and 7th Path hypnotherapy I learned how to help others truly heal and grow which is so much more powerful. Furthermore, Cal Banyan is truly the master of this field. He has a unique personality and a unique way of teaching, putting his heart and soul in it.” Elizabeth Sharp Swain, M.A.
Camden, DE

“A life changing event...I came in hopes of finding a new career path. Staying in my preferred area of being able to help people. This is unexpected, dramatic, and mind expanding beyond words. To be experienced is the only way to understand what is offered and what is gained. Oh and at the top of my priority list to learn hypnosis and become certified. The difference in conventional hypnosis compared to 5-PATH® and 7th Path is a kin to walking a flat road and climbing the highest mountain.” David Monohan, ARDMS
Indio, CA

“Before I came to here to take the class, I learned hypnosis by myself through watching hypnosis training videos for about 2 years, but I did not have the confidence to see clients. So when I made the decision I had a lot of expectancy for the class. After the class, I realized I made the right decision. I really got what I wanted. Thanks so much.” Harvey Mi
Beijing, China

“This course is taught in a logical and systematic manner, which makes it easy to follow and learn efficiently. At the same time, it accommodates different belief systems / religions / philosophies of both practitioners and clients. It can be customized to meet needs and wants of those who benefit from hypnosis.” Keita Takeuchi
Redwood City, CA

“During the course of my professional business career, I've received the opportunity to participate in a number of seminars and courses, and without question, the Banyan Hypnosis Center's program was the most informative, motivating, and personally enlightening training that I have ever experienced. It is so much more than the finest hypnotherapy training program available – it can literally be life-changing, and most importantly, empowers the student to change the lives of others in a profound way through 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis.”
Steve Schmitz, M.B.A.
Coconut Creek, FL

“The best hypnosis training. After a course you will get automatic hypnotherapy system and be ready to work.” Vladimir Makulov
Moscow, Russia

“It was a real privilege and opportunity to take this course with Cal Banyan, a gifted teacher. I came to this class with the expectations of building my own confidence, a few suggested patter scripts and maybe the opportunity to hypnotize someone. I learned and did all this the first day! The rest of the course changed my life. And because of the tools I received, will change the lives of many others. Thank you. The staff was extremely accommodating.” Berry Cessna
Naples, FL

Instructed by Calvin D. Banyan, MA
National Guild of Hypnotists, Board Certified Hypnotist (BCH) and Certified Instructor (CI) and Banyan Hypnosis Center for Training & Services, Inc. Instructor

“5-PATH and 7th Path are the missing links in the therapeutic modalities being offered today. As a psychotherapist, this work opens up a whole new approach to deepening and also speeding up the therapy process. Any psycho-therapist could benefit from taking this course.” John Medveckis, MA, LPC
Santa Barbara, CA

“Through the process of 7th Path Self Hypnosis, I became aware of a deep seated anger. Through the 5-PATH technique, I released that anger and replaced it with a sense of love and hope that, prior to this course, I would not have experientially know.” Courtney Greene, BA
San Pedro, CA

“The Banyan Hypnosis Center is professional, efficient, organized with knowledgeable staff. Class instruction is thorough and meticulous. I was personally hypnotized by Calvin Banyan. The experience has been transformational and beneficial. I would highly recommend Cal Banyan's method: Five Phase Advanced Transformational Hypnosis (5-PATH) for children, adults, and for the famous and elite. Cal Banyan can help you with anything, he is a true master. Thank you for teaching me 5-PATH and 7th Path. Always your student.” Nirvana D.
Long Beach, CA

“The NGH certification course taught by Cal Banyan is truly the best program out there. The classes are intense, emotional and motivating and Cal's enthusiasm resonates with everyone. As a previously certified student, I have a strong appreciation for the structured and disciplined curriculum. If you are interested in hypnosis and want to learn all that you can and be your best, this training is the only option!” Larissa King
Palm Beach Gardens, FL

“As a physician, I needed a training course that :
1.) Had a reasonable map of consciousness
2.) Had a systematic approach to surgically address psychological and behavioral issues
3.) Had sufficient time dedicated to practice of techniques
4.)Was led by a teacher committed to not only dispersal of important information, but actual development of prepared practitioners.

I can verify that Cal Banyan has created and led such a course with the 2 weeks certification course. The teaching of 7th Path with 5-PATH also satisfies the Hippocrates oath that healers also must heal themselves.”
Eugene Ahn, MD
Miami, FL

“This course provided me with everything I need to begin my career as a hypnotherapist. Cal is a firm, direct trainer, who is clearly passionate and highly skilled. The training was well organized and facilitated, providing an optimal environment for learning as well as personal growth. We were provided with lots of practice time to put each other under hypnosis, be in hypnosis and observe the process. It has all been very confidence building and rewarding.” Brenda Titus, BA, MS
Santa Ana, CA

“For over 30 years, I've been in some kind of class/course studying one thing or another, but, I must honestly say that this class/course has gone beyond any expectation I could have imagined. I truly recommend that everyone experience this journey.” Lino Barraza, MBA
Diamond Bar, CA

“Everything it was advertised and so much more. Cal gives all of his passion, extensive knowledge, heart and soul into this intensive 10 day course. He prepares you to go out and literally “Open shop” the day after graduation. No other course offers this kind of turnkey instruction. He teaches with a strict hand, but displays passionate, ruthless compassion, relentless drive and a sense of humor. All of this adds up to a roller coaster ride of learning, sharing, role playing, practice, emotions and a sense of real achievement confidence and success.” Michael Denis
Mission Viejo, CA

“I could not have made a better choice! The level of education at the Banyan Hypnosis Center. The training and professionalism has exceeded my expectations! Not only do I feel confident and competent to help my clients reach their goals, but, I have also experienced a personal transformation. Thank you, Cal & Maureen!” Jessikah Kollatou, T.A.P.
Los Angeles, CA

“The Banyan Hypnosis Center training was absolutely an awesome experience! Combined with learning the techniques of 5-PATH and 7th Path and actual practice time was such a remarkable experience also. Thank you!” Sharon Yost, DMRMC
Long Beach, CA

“This course which lasted two weeks is certainly the most challenging, inspiring and insightful. I would even go to say "Perhaps the Harvard of the hypnotherapy courses"(having attended a few courses before this, I can confirm). The reasons simply are two-fold:

1) Cal Banyan – the Instructor. He is passionate, driver and relentless in the task of teaching ad imparting knowledge to his students (almost manic!). Anyone can see I feel the integrity and the drive combined in Cal to make each of his student a successful hypnotist - the best there is!
2) The 5-PATH and 7th Path system based approach fives you science, structure, results and confidence. These become successful tools for anyone to practice and succeed.

I have gained knowledge, wisdom, methodology and optimism to move forward in the world of hypnotherapy. Thank you, Cal & Maureen!”
Jayanthi Thiagarajan, MA

“I chose Cal Banyan's 5-PATH and 7th Path course after reviewing numerous courses being offered by others.

It didn't take much effort to see after a side by side comparison of course content, Cal's course had content far beyond other courses. The real cincher for me to signing up for Cal's course was reading his book, "Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy Basic to Advanced Techniques for the Professional", which gave me a very good insight to the material that would be covered in his training class.

After completing Cal's course, I believe I have been prepared for and have obtained skills for success in my Hypnotherapy endeavors. I also believe that the training I received has indeed propelled me into the 1%'er class.”

“Cal Banyan is clearly an expert and master at what he does. I cannot believe the amount of material I have learned in 10 days. It is a tough course, but, worth it. I feel prepared and confident to be a hypnotherapist.” Mary Beth Pindor

Marlborough, MA Held in Tustin
Instructed by Calvin D. Banyan, MA
National Guild of Hypnotists, Board Certified Hypnotist (BCH) and Certified Instructor (CI) and Banyan Hypnosis Center for Training & Services, Inc. Instructor

“Although my expectations were high, I got a lot more out of this course than I expected. Cal is an outstanding teacher with insights into the profession that go far beyond the curriculum. The 7th Path Self-Hypnosis was an unexpected bonus. I am proud to be a part of the 5-PATH community.” Ron Niederkofler
Vancouver, Washington

“I really enjoyed the course and cemented the understanding I required to become more confident in my practice. The material was thorough and extensive. It is not for the fainthearted as the pace stretches you.” Carol Sheridan, MAPHP
United Kingdom

“Very well structured material and very good course. I would love more practice and supervision hours during the course. The supervision over practice time was great. I did like the course, but it was stressful. It's not simple to do but if was spread over a longer period, it would be nice. I learned a lot of great 5-PATH and 7-Path methods. Thanks.” Omree Sheridan, B.S.

“Exceeded expectations! Must do!” Chuck Wilson, MBA
Santa Margarita, CA

“I entered this course with pre-conceived notions, judgments, and expectations of what I would learn before the course ended and returning home. However, I was not prepared to be disappointed and disenchanted. NOT, because of the vast knowledge, skills, insight, personal/professional growth, and development I experienced during the course. As well as bonding with other professionals around the world.

But, disappointed and disenchanted that I had limited my ability to grow as a person and professional for many years until attending Mr. Banyan's course. Mr. Banyan, Ms. Maureen, Mr. Elronn, and Ms. Tally are incredible human beings that emanate immeasurable amounts of positive energy, a wealth of knowledge and kindness.

Mr. Banyan's extensive knowledge in multiple disciplines and solid theoretical foundations delivers a thought provoking, participant friendly, curriculum ready course that delivers.”
