30 Days of Hypnosis: Day 13

How do you feel about stage hypnosis?

I am not one of these peo­ple who con­sid­er stage hyp­no­sis to be in some way a degra­da­tion of the use of hyp­no­sis. I feel it is a valid form of enter­tain­ment when per­formed by peo­ple who know what they are doing and are cog­nizant of the poten­tial safe­ty fac­tors involved in any live performance.

That said, I must add that I know more than a cou­ple pro­fes­sion­al stage hyp­no­tists, some of whom are per­son­al friends. I would nev­er want to neg­a­tive­ly impact their pro­fes­sion­al stand­ing and rep­u­ta­tion, not their livelihoods.

Would you ever consent to trancing someone / being tranced in front of an audience?

I am by nature a rather qui­et and reserved per­son, not very com­fort­able being in the spot­light, so I would not in most cir­cum­stances want to do any­thing before an audi­ence by myself. That includes being the hyp­no­tist as well as the sub­ject. If there was some way of get­ting accli­mat­ed to that, through expe­ri­ence, I may reconsider.

That said, I could be per­suad­ed to par­tic­i­pate in a stage hyp­no­sis show as a sub­ject, espe­cial­ly for a female stage hypnotist.
