What People are saying about this

Ernest L. Rossi
An unusually lucid presentation and integration! The authors present ways to apply the techniques developed in the book to common applications, and they consistently use the therapeutic trance as the primary source for learning. This book gains an extra dimension of reality through the use of exercises throughout the text. For every bit of theory introduced there is an exercise to illustrate it.
