January 13– New Expectations
Most of us have lived with the belief that “seeing is believing.” However, the Law of Expectation states that what we believe or expect at the subconscious level, tends to shape our external reality. Therefore, “believing is seeing.”
The purpose of this exercise is to create new expectations based on clear intention which then changes your experience of life. Energy follows thought; we move toward, but not beyond, what we can imagine. This exercise helps you to move beyond your previously assumed limits.

February 10– Experiencing Self-discipline
Discipline is the key to freedom and independence. We may have experienced many things in life but never any one area in depth. When we skim the surface of life we miss the rewards that come with success.
The purpose of this exercise is to push through the boredom and achieve our goal by experiencing life in depth and completing what we’ve started.

March 9– Experiencing Flexibility 
Flexibility means total and unconditional acceptance of who we are, whom we’re with and what we’re doing in this moment. Flexibility means staying adaptable; like water, we take the shape of our “container” – life is less of a struggle when we respond rather than resist. The purpose of this exercise is to practice flexibility in our lives.

Future Life ProgressionFuture Life Progression

10 CE hours for hypnotherapists

Pre-requisite: hypnotherapy training

The more I use this process the more excited I am about the possibilities and ways that clients can benefit. Based on the work of several experts in future life work, this training will teach you how to guide your clients far into their future and into their future lives. They will experience first hand the outcome of their current choices. Once they make a different choice in the here and now, they will affect their future. Study the material ahead of time, then come to our online lab for hands-on practice.

Future life progression can help you to evaluate your decisions in this life by accessing a future life memory. You can see the karmic effect of your current choices. This allows you to change or address issues that may be preventing you from moving forward in your current life. You can also end an ongoing karmic pattern that you may have carried through multiple lives.

In Past Lives, Future Lives Revealed, the author discusses a case in which his client found the root cause of his difficulty to lie in a future life. How could this be? The subconscious mind is not subject to time as the conscious mind is. The conscious mind replays memories in a linear fashion which gives the impression of time however the subconscious mind can recall memories regardless if they are from the past, present, or future.

Those experiencing future life progressions have reported feelings of ease, clarity, understanding, and even inspiration concerning their current lives.

Most people have questions and concerns in two areas: career and relationships. This month our focus will be on career choices.

Benefits of a Future Life Progression (FLP)

  • Find a career direction in your current job – make the right moves to maximize your potential and escape a dead-end role
  • Test a new career path – identify your true vocation and implement a career change with confidence and success
  • Build your confidence – FLP will show you how to follow your dream and make it come true.
  • Make changes in your life – if you’re unhappy with your life path, FLP will help you to know that you will escape your rut.
  • Find fulfillment – put the fire back into your working soul.

In this experiential class you will learn what to expect from hypnosis and enjoy a group progression to a future life.

Facilitator: Katherine Zimmerman, CHT, is the Director/Instructor of the California Hypnotherapy Academy, an internationally-known author and speaker, and Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist. Since 1989, she has taught classes, and given presentations on hypnotherapy at professional conferences.

I have tried for most of a decade to make sense of tapping, and was simply unsure what to do with it or whether it was effective. I was a bit skeptical, to tell the truth. You’ve made it clear that it works and how to use EFT as a simple tool in conjunction with hypnosis. ~Kristine Anselmo

“… I thought of you and felt very grateful since I knew EFT inside and out… THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! You were the one who taught me EFT and I have never forgotten it. I have used it with clients and I use it for myself. I have been and will always be eternally grateful to you for teaching it to me (along with others)… So thanks to you…” ~Linda Compton

Testimonials from former students:

From students in my 2015 Intuition/Spirituality course:
“As always Katherine’s class was excellent. Informative and creative beyond expectations.”

“A great listener; aware, discerning, insightful, joyful.”

“Your style is unique in that you have a way of ‘becoming one’ with the students you teach. You integrate yourself so well that one feels they are listening and responding to a good friend who knows and understands their problems. You begin helping them overcome obstacles, and reach beyond themselves as soon as you start talking. Your unshakable self confidence envelops the student creating the necessary atmosphere in which to grow and learn. As I observed this remarkable teaching skill, respect and admiration have only grown since I first sat in your class.” Mary A. Caldwell, CHT

“If you look up the word ‘professionalism’ in the dictionary, you will see Katherine Zimmerman’s picture. Katherine conducts her hypnotherapy training courses with great integrity, passion and commitment. She is as excited to witness the growth in her students’ professional skills and personal development as the students themselves. From the first time I met Katherine, I knew she would be the right teacher from whom to obtain my hypnotherapy certification training. Katherine learned from the best: her teachers comprise a ‘Who’s Who’ of the top names in modern Hypnotherapy. In addition to her wealth of knowledge and first-hand experience gleaned from many years in private practice, Katherine’s genuine warmth and natural wit make her hypnotherapy training a truly entrancing and life-transforming experience.”
Nancy Tracy, CHT

“Katherine is a wonderful teacher and her course is outstanding at every level. Her teaching style is hands on and the classes are very participatory. Students begin practicing hypnosis during the very first weekend class. Katherine’s style is to discuss a technique (and she teaches many), then demonstrate it with one of the students. After that, the students begin practicing it on each other, under her close observation. Within a week of my first class, I was successfully using the techniques she taught us with my own clients. The results have been nothing short of remarkable. What I thought would be just another tool in my therapeutic toolbox, has become one of my primary tools. I wholeheartedly recommend Katherine and The California Hypnotherapy Academy to anyone interested in learning more about hypnosis and hypnotherapy.” Ray Brown, PhD, LMFT, CCHT
