I bought the “Power Of Conversational Hypnosis” course by Igor Ledochowski about three years ago as I was interested in covert hypnosis. The course comprises 16 CD downloads and a PDF transcript of the CD recordings totalling 545 pages.
Igor Ledochowski proved to be a master of covert hypnosis. I liked the course as I could listen to the tone and pace of his voice when he was explaining and giving examples of his induction methods. There is a lot of material covered and the PDF transcript of the course was easy to print out and summerize.
Igor explains his course very well and is easy to follow. His background as a lawyer is reflected in the professional standard of the course. Each section has a theoretical explanation followed by examples and exercises.
CD 1 gives an overview of the course, an explanation of what hypnosis is and the basics of hypnotic induction.
CD 2 covers the importance of establishing rapport and how to recognise the signs of trance.
CD 3 gives plenty of examples of hypnotic language patterns and a detailed discussion of the performance element of hypnosis. After all, hypnosis is a performance art.
CD 4 teaches how to get people to agree with you and persistence tactics.
CD 5 is about how to use emotional triggers to induce trance and then how to intensify the response.
CD 6 describes advanced hypnotic language. There are plenty of exercises in this section.
CD 7 covers how to destroy resistance with storytelling. Igor is a master storyteller and this is one of his main techniques. He explains plenty of insider tricks to entrance your audience when storytelling.
CD 8 goes into great detail on how to deal directly with the unconscious mind. Conversational hypnosis is broken down into 4 stages. Each stage is explained fully and is easy to comprehend. The hypnotic gaze induction is also explained which is very interesting.
CD 9 goes into more depth on the use of storytelling. I told you this was one of Igor’s main techniques.
CD 10 explains how to irresistibly lead any interaction with what Igor calls “frames”. I liked the part on how to handle any genuine objection.
CD 11 covers conversational trance formulas or the art of getting what you want. Implanting future memories and post hypnotic suggestion are particularly interesting.
CD 12 ties everything together with a summary of 20 master techniques of conversational hypnosis.
There are also 4 bonus CDs that cover other very interesting topics.
Overall this is a massive course, so be prepared for some lengthy study to learn all the material. Take it at an easy pace over a number of weeks, otherwise you could suffer from information overload.
So is it worth the $197 price tag? My personal opinion is that it is. I found it to be the most comprehensive and useful course I have done on the subject of covert hypnosis. This stuff works and should be taken seriously. This course will definitely help if you are in any sales, management or leadership position. It could be said it gives you an unfair advantage in communication.
