Stephen Gilligan’s Generative Trance offers a framework for developing a more creative consciousness and lays out the step-by-step processes by which this can be done.

William James used to say that ‘the unconscious mind is the horse and the conscious mind is the rider: it’s the relationship between the two that is most important.’ In Generative Trance renowned trainer Stephen Gilligan shows you how to harness this relationship for a much more powerful and effective therapeutic intervention, and reveals how life can be lived as a great journey of consciousness.

Emphasizing that reality and identity are constructed by ourselves, Gilligan explains how generative trance is crucial in creating new realities and possibilities for clients. It is a view that differs markedly from the traditional hypnosis ideas of a client losing control, as well as from Ericksonian approaches that feature a benevolent hypnotist who bypasses the conscious mind to work with a client’s unconscious mind. Instead, generative trance stresses a ‘disciplined flow’ process in which a person’s conscious and unconscious minds cooperate to weave a higher consciousness capable of transformational change.

Suitable for individuals who want to live life as a creative journey, as well as for professionals working with clients in such ventures.
