“When I moved my practice from California to Florida in 1993, one of the first things I did was join HEA on Michael Watson’s recommendation. I have said for years and still say to this day that it’s the best value for great hypnosis education and information that I’ve ever encountered and, as an added bonus, the nicest, friendliest conferences I’ve ever attended. HEA has been a great resource for my hypnosis students to continue their education and growth in the field, something that wasn’t readily available to me without great travel distance and expense when I began my hypnosis career in 1992.
Whether you are a professional hypnotherapist or other healing arts practitioner, or if you simply want to learn more about the miraculous inner workings of the mind-body connection, you will love attending, learning, and interacting with the dedicated, caring people these conferences attract.
