Hypnotherapy healing seminars set for March, April

Southwest Light and Learning Center is sponsoring the spring session of Ilene Haykus’ “Healing Through Hypnosis” seminars, beginning Saturday, March 12.

In the morning session, Haykus will introduce the topic, “Bringing Peace and Relaxation into Daily Life.” The session runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a cost of $35. In the afternoon on March 12, she will address “Healing Emotional Wounds” from 2 to 5 p.m. ($35).

The seminars will continue on Saturday, March 26, with “Discovering Your Inner Wisdom” (morning) and “Exploring Past Lives” (afternoon). Then, on Saturday, April 23, Ilene will conclude the series with an all-day seminar, “Making Clear Decisions and Maintaining Healthy Behavior.”

In the field of medical hypnosis, “the power of the mind” has been used to replace the use of anesthesia, to minimize bleeding during surgery and to accelerate healing from injury and disease. The American Medical Association (AMA) has officially recognized hypnosis as a valuable and beneficial treatment tool since 1958.

Hypnotherapy may be used to heal emotional trauma, to discover inner resources for nurturing and guidance, to change unhealthy patterns of behavior (such as smoking or overeating) and for stress management. The power of hypnotherapy lies in the ability of the individual to discover his or her own key to healing, within.

A free introductory lecture on Healing through Hypnotherapy will be held Thursday, March 10, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Pagosa Lodge. For information, call Annie Miller, 759-2983.

Ilene Haykus M.A., CHT holds a master’s degree in psychology from Antioch University. She has lived in Pagosa Springs since 1995 and has been practicing and teaching hypnotherapy since 1989.
