On the 21th and 22th of October 2017 Stephen Gilligan will visit Gezond Denken & Doen and offer us the 2-day training “Generative Trance”.
This training focuses on Dr. Stephen Gilligan’s generative trance work as a way to deeply awaken creativity—in reaching goals, transforming problems, being “in love” with your life, and opening the imagination. The course is practical, stimulating, deeply experiential, and transformative. There will be many demonstrations, group trances, and practicing with partners. You will learn new ways to help yourself and others to live a successful and fulfilling life, to release long-standing limitations, and to move through each day with wonderment, awareness, and connection. It is based on Dr. Gilligan’s 40 years of experience in hypnosis, trance, meditation, martial arts, and creative change work. It is original, practical, transformative, and lots of fun. We hope you will join us!

Generative trance is not the traditional trance where the conscious mind is “put to sleep” and the unconscious is programmed with external suggestions. A core underlying idea is that creativity is a conversation between two worlds—the “dreamer” or “visionary” world of the creative unconscious, and the “realist” and “practical” world of the conscious mind. Each requires and completes the other, and generative trance helps you to forge the integrated consciousness that “includes yet transcends” both minds.
In this course, you will learn how, why, and when to use generative trance to create change in the three general life areas: professional (work) life, personal relationships (intimacy, family, friends), and self-relationship (body image, emotional history, “negative parts”). We will see how reality is constructed through mind/body maps, and how in generative trance these identity maps can be safely accessed, updated, transformed, or created anew. This changes the unconscious “blueprint” that guides a person in living their life.
The practical path for making such changes is provided by the 5-step model of generative trance. The first step opens a creative space (I am safe, I am positively connected, I am here). The second step sets intention (There’s something I want to create….), and welcomes the central ingredients of a generative trance—goals, resources, obstacles, beliefs, etc. The third step stirs these ingredients to form a generative trance (I open into a special learning field…). In the fourth step, transformational changes are developed (I create positive changes). And in the final step, these trance learnings are applied into real life (I can live these changes into the world.)
In learning each of these steps, you are discovering how to carefully and effectively make deep changes in people’s lives. Please join us!
