Fri Sept 22 - Jump Start on Hypnokink with Wiseguy! Workshop 7-10pm (Studio C, 3rd floor)

Are you new to erotic hypnosis? Been doing it for a while but feeling unsure of yourself, or still consider yourself a beginner? This Friday night Jump Start session is for you. We will start from the very beginning and cover the essentials that anyone doing hypnosis play should know:

- Erotic Hypnosis 101: What hypnosis is and isn't; basic structure of an erotic hypnosis scene; what sorts of things do we do with hypnosis in an erotic/BDSM context; community standards for consent and negotiation

- Scene Fundamentals: How to approach someone for play; negotiating from the top and from the bottom; laying the groundwork for a great scene

- Hypnotist's Starter Kit: Easy to learn, easy to use methods for getting someone into hypnosis, deepening the hypnotic state, and bringing someone out again

- Brain Training: Tips, advice, and exercises to help those who want to be on the receiving end of trance play develop their skills

The evening includes multiple demonstrations and group exercise opportunities (participation optional) so that you can practice as you learn.


Sat Sept 23 Erotic Hypnosis Level-Up with Wiseguy! Workshop 1- 6PM (Lab, 2nd floor )

For those who have learned the fundamentals (including those who take the Friday night Jump Start), this Level-Up intensive focuses on skills and techniques for evolving into a skilled and confident hypnotist, hypnotee, or switch. The intensive includes:

- Creating Rapport: Knowing how to establish and maintain rapport makes every part of the hypnotic process easier; learn what rapport is and why it's so helpful for hypnosis

- Observant Negotiation: Using the negotiation process to gain insights into your partner's mind that you can use throughout your scene

- Induction Toolkit: Versatility is key to being able to hypnotize a variety of people; the inductions in this workshop go beyond the basic relaxation and fixation techniques to capture your partner's imagination and attention, quickly and easily leading them into trance.

- Going Deeper: A frank discussion of hypnotic depth, including methods for increasing trance depth and a look at fractionation from both sides of the watch.

- Watch Your Language: Hypnosis is communication; these tips on phrasing and language can help elevate a good scene into a great one

- Join Us! : Now that you've upped your hypnosis game, you'll want to practice! To wrap up our intensive we'll talk about the erotic hypnosis community and the many opportunities it offers to practice and play with people online and in person.

This intensive is designed for hypnotists, hypnotees, and switches. Bring someone to practice with if you can; there will be demonstrations and exercises (participation optional) intended to help reinforce your new skills through practice.

Sun Sept 24 Private Lessons with Wiseguy! 11- 5PM (Studio E, 3rd floor)

These private sessions are an opportunity to get direct coaching, instruction, or practice with Wiseguy. The time is yours; you can ask questions, receive coaching on technique, get hypnotized, or pretty much anything else you wish. Sessions are available in 30-minute increments. You can bring up to two people with you if you like.
