Description

In a practice spanning more than twenty years, Calof has helped clients use the power of their own unconscious to gain insights, solve problems, and heal physical and psychological wounds - sometimes in dramatic ways even he could not foresee. Each chapter in this book reads like a whodunit, taking us on the search for clues and solutions to patients' mysterious symptoms.We learn that, to the unconscious, mind and body are one, as we watch a woman cleanse her body of precancerous cells through the use of mental imagery. We learn that family communication is hypnotic, as we see three sisters pass fifteen pounds from one to another - until they are freed from the "burden" of caring for their parents. And in Calof's accounts of his pioneering work with dissociative disorders, we glimpse the many selves we all carry within us.As David Calof makes clear, trance is not the exclusive province of hypnotists, but is a natural phenomenon we encounter daily. The magic is not in the hypnotherapist, but in each one of us.show more
