Review by NATHAN WELLMAN

June 11, 2018

What I liked

I especially liked the myth-busting aspect of the show. Like how there is no “mind control” aspect of hypnosis. The success of the procedure is entirely dependent on the willingness of the participant to give consent to the hypnotist’s “commands,” which I would instead label as “promptings.”

And yes, I did indeed participate in a hypnotism, and it truly was a rivetingly empowering experience that I have every intention to keep studying.

What I didn't like

N/A

My overall impression

A fascinating overview into the basics of hypnosis and the surprisingly high amount of overlap between that and the art of acting.

To paraphrase McIntyre: “Much like acting, hypnotism is the art of distracting the conscious to access the subconscious”
