Graduates of our Week of Power - Advanced Hypnotherapy Certification Course April 2019

“The benefits of this course, both professional and personal are immeasurable, and trying to sum them up in a few sentences is a challenge. The systematic and disciplined integration of 5-PATH® with 7th Path and the spiritual, mental, physical and emotional components of all humans, results in a method that, when executed properly, is far and away the most effective, efficient and empowering that exists.

Thank you, Cal, Maureen & Tasha, for this transformational experience.”

-Laura A. Skosey, Ph D., Chicago, IL

“Cal is the most knowledgeable instructor I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. His discipline and high expectations are contagious. Everything else I have studied have become the appetizers. Cal’s course of 5-PATH® and 7th Path are the only main courses you need to transform the lives of your clients as well as your own.”
-Joan Ann Fissette, BA, MSHE, Ms ADM, CH, Ballston Lake, NY

“A most excellent training – integrating mind-body-spirit. Cal Banyan is an excellent instructor who not only trains but inspires students.

I believe that I am well equipped to treat clinical needs of patients seeking help for emotional problems, which will add to my formal training as a clinical Psychologist. I am a Licensed Psychologist and a certified Psychoanalyst. There is to my knowledge, no other comparable training in the field of hypnosis.”

-Mari Terzaghi, Ph. D., New York, NY

“I know this course was going to transform my hypnosis practice of eight years, which I started out incorporating into my private psychotherapy practice of fifteen years, that has been part of my career working in the National Health Service in the U.K. for over twenty years in one capacity or another.

However, having completed the course, I feel like there has been a transformation of practice, personal (spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically) that has enhanced my awareness of self focus, the world and where I am in it at this time, where time is really timeless. I look forward to building on this new foundation a more solid power house to help me with the rest of my journey. Thank you, Cal, Maureen & Tasha.”

-Maggie Bell, Bromley, U.K..

“I’ve done a lot of hypnosis study in class and at home. Cal’s course was comprehensive and helped gel it all together.

The 7th Path portion was both enlightening and inspiring. All in all, it was well worth the time and money, Another bonus was the amazing people I met.”

-Don Simpson, CH, Perth, W. Australia

“I’ve come to this class for revision, to better learn the material after 18 months in practice. It has been incredibly useful for me. There is only so much you can learn in the first class, even if you revise materials once in a while. Repetition is the mother of learning, and by all means this applies to 5-PATH®”
-Katerina Furman, MA, London, U.K.

“Cal Banyan is a master teacher. 5-PATH® and 7th Path have completely changed my perspective on the depth of what hypnosis can do for me and my clients.

I am grateful and happy for this experience and look forward to more.”

-Sandra Meadows, RN, BS, MA, Addison, TX

“This is a great course to be trained by Calvin Banyan himself. He is so passionate in his teaching and his rich knowledge to teach each and everyone in the class. I benefitted greatly and really appreciate from the bottom of my heart. Those who want to be good in hypnosis, must learn from him.”
-Dato May Lim, Singapore

“Cal Banyan’s 7 days of power was an incredible experience. I took his distance learning course, but, 7 days of power really filled in the gaps. I am already seeing clients based on my distance learning course, but, feel like I have learned so much more and will be able to provde a much better service to my clients now, plus, 7th Path is incredible.”
-Robert Miller, CH, Spring Creek, NV

“The 5-PATH® course given by Cal Banyan in the Banyan Hypnosis Center was amazing. Jan-packed with theory, written information, manuals and handouts all are well presented, professional and beyond expectation. The “juicy bits” embodied in the 5-PATH® process are a head and shoulders beyond what I thought was excellent hypnosis training. Cal’s system is BRILLIANT and segues perfectly with the 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® process. The end result is an excellent, well-rounded educational and therapeutic process for almost anyone and everyone. I am so excited to get out there!!”
-Lynne Potter Lord, M. Sc, BHE, B. Ed, Vancouver, BC, Canada

“Fantastic course - teaches you how to ACTUALLY HELP people solve their issues. You better like to learn if you take this course, the days are long and your head will be packed with information, everything you need to help your clients and you to be successful. Honestly, any other hypnosis course is a waste of time and money. This class transforms you so you can transform clients.”
-Monica Miller, CCH, LMT, RYT200, Atlanta, GA

“A deep and intensive course, to be recommended. Brilliant location and facilities. Thank you, Cal Banyan for sharing your extensive knowledge.”
-Prunella Seed, M. Sc., Bromley, U.K.

“If you want to learn REAL hypnosis that is actually effective with thorough training, then this is the class for you.

I expected a lot from this class and it still exceed my expectations. It was mor than just how and why along with a detailed outline (although it was that too) it has been a life altering experience.

I have many many many many hypnotherapy courses and this is by far, the most comprehensive course I have seen. It is worth every penny plus many more. If you are considering this course – DO IT! You will be glad you did.”

-Aimee Baker, Houston, TX

“Cal Banyan taught me a systematic approach to hypnosis through 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® that gives me the skills to be successful as a 5-PATH® hypnotist and teacher of the 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® system. I now have the confidence to start my own business, knowing that this training has me prepared to get the wanted results with my clients. Thank you, Cal Banyan.”
-Angelika Schmoll, Eugene, OR

“I was trained as a hypnotist in a quality NGH qualified course. As I worked with clients, I saw a clear need for a comprehensive structure both practical and theoretical for my client work. The combination of 5-PATH® and 7th Path instructed, demonstrated and practiced in the Week of Power course profoundly delivered what I needed and more. I left here with a clear plan, a solid foundation and massive support going forward. Sometimes you get what you need. Cal and Maureen are a class act who run a world class hypnosis center.”
-Keith Byrd, B. Adm., Washington, DC

This class will teach you to be a master at your craft – Cal’s enthusiasm and expertise shines through and is completely infectious.

“Beyond my wildest expectations, this class prepares, entertains and transforms students. The course material is unique and thorough. However, the value in this class stems predominantly from the owner, you will learn from the best of the best. Cal’s teaching style inspires you to want to be him!

Cal is a great professor, a great human with such positive vibes, I learned and absorbed a lot, thanks to his way of teaching.” -Manuel Somoza Pineda, Honduras

“This class and course was a pleasant surprise! I had a great education and therapy at the same time. I was not aware that they mixed mind, body, and spirit!

Give it a chance – it’s only 2 weeks for the course, but, the use is for a lifetime!” -David Contreras, A.S. San Pedro, CA.

“I saw the Ultimates 1-5 course announced and immediately knew I wanted to move forward with my 7th Path practice. I didn’t know what to expect, but, from the beginning, it blew me away. The continuity with 5-PATH® and the 9 Recognitions of 7th Path made it so significant that there is no turning back! Cal as usual has all the time to care for his students and time to share his wisdom and knowledge. Wonderful!”
- Cat Thomas, CH, Palm Springs, CA.

“Cal Banyan is a genius in esoteric/spiritual phenomena, but, it comes in layers. If you’re only looking to become the best hypnotist, that’s what you will learn. If you are ready to have your heart chakra blasted open, that will occur… and beyond. If you have done 7th Path – do this. Amazing!”
- Marilyn Sjaastad, MS, MA, CH, Bismarck, North Dakota

“If you are a 7th Path teacher, this class is a must-do. If you have taken 7th Path, this course is life changing. It will help you find your true self and your true path in life.

Thank you so very much, Cal!”

- Vaughn Brotton, BS, CH, Diamond Bar, CA.

“Cal is extremely knowledgeable about the subject but is also a tremendous facilitator with regards to helping people process their insights, emotions and thoughts that come up while learning the Ultimate recognitions.

It’s nice to have the structure and time to really spend with each new recognition. It is obviously a very quick way to learn all 5 at once, but, I felt the class did provide enough to me to begin to learn them and experience their benefits. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to further their 7th Path practice after learning all the full recognitions.”

- Darwin Gillett, MJW, LICSW, CH, Boston, MA

“I love 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®, but the Ultimate Recognitions brought 7th Path to a whole new level for me. I connected to the Ultimate Recognitions immediately and it brought me an awareness I thought was not even possible for me. I did not think that 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® can have so much more to offer to me, but, after I learnt these Ultimates 1-5, it did! Thanks, Cal – I loved it and I look forward to getting the Ultimates 6-9!”
- Martina Berger, PhD, CH, Newport Beach, CA.
