The following email is from a graduate who came to our school from Africa.

"I feel now I am ready to express an experience that has transformed my life and in the process the lives of lots of people! To begin with, I could not have imagined that I would no longer feel my (formerly) chronic backache. I have learned to relax the muscles and actually pass on the healing thoughts and energy to the pain areas.

"Bringing the learning to Africa, where such methods are treated as esoteric, unacceptable and a taboo - I have managed to get people to experience the healing and believe in the modern "miracle" of Hypnotherapy. A "miracle" which anyone can perform with his/her ingrained abilities.

"The changes in my life are nothing short of a miracle. Healing my personal relationships has been the highlight....

"With your unique ability and wide experience, you certainly are leaving a legacy in this world. Your passionate and committed approach to focus on the healing aspect touched my heart. You have sown the seeds of this unique healing methodology and I consider myself very fortunate and blessed. Thank you very much for everything and keep on inspiring and healing the world. We need you."

"When I started I was taking it for a thesis topic and only expected to complete the first level. The more I learned, the more I realized this is what I really wanted to do. By the time of my Level Four Graduation, I felt this could be my profession. I quickly developed a full-time hypnotherapy practice, with at least 6-8 clients per day. I have referrals referring referrals!

"You are both such wonderful teachers. Your wise and tested methods have allowed me to work with the most basic issues and the very complex, with outstanding success."

While hypnotherapy can be integrated into any counseling or health profession, the following graduate chose to quit chiropractic to become a hypnotherapist. Dennis had felt he couldn't wait for our accelerated program and began commuting 5,000 miles roundtrip from Wisconsin each weekend for several months!

"After 18 years of being a chiropractor and acupuncturist and asking "why," I came upon the answer. So much physical, mental and emotional distress is a result of chronic negative emotions, false beliefs and flawed premises. All of this results in physical "disease." Treating them with physical modalities may remove symptoms but rarely cures. Going to the origin, one's thoughts and emotions, can transform the individual and this is where true healing occurs. So I started my journey into the world of one's thoughts and emotions which led me to hypnotherapy.

"I received certification from another hypnosis organization, but I began looking for something more. Something was missing from the first program and I felt HTI's program would fill the missing pieces. Well, what a surprise - HTI not only filled the missing pieces but it gave me so much more - the best education that I ever received in healing oneself and others. I have now left chiropractic and acupuncture behind, and am living my dream as a hypnotherapist. I could write a small book with the teachings and experiences with HTI.... Randal, I so appreciate your teachings, experiences and your wisdom. HTI is a First Class Act taught by First Class People."

"Never in my life have I felt so close to peace and to God as I did during your course. You gave me the most fantastic tool anyone could ever find... you taught me to be able to go deep within myself to find the answers and find myself. Now my only objective is to help people with what you have taught me, so they may also find that wonderful world that comes from inside...."
