 I mentioned at the IMDHA teleconference tonight that I had seen one study, for smoking cessation, using an approach to hypnosis that was more customised than scripted.  I thought I'd drop off that reference for you :-)

Hi Michael,

Yes we did meet at the conference last year. I attended your presentation and you ended up giving me a handout at the airport on the way leaving the conference. Hope all is well for you.

HI Michael,

I am honoured by your friend request. I have learned a lot from your posts and enjoy reading them.

Thanks again

Barry

Hi Michael, I look forward to meeting you in person soon. Best, Ivan

Thank Michael for the warm welcome. I am very excited to see where this path takes me. I'm not sure yet when I'll be taking your class but know you'll see me signed up soon.

I will be coming early to Vegas and staying after the conference as well, think 1 day both. I'll see what the gentle people I am riding with are planning. I am considering staying after for several days as finances and time allows you post conference stuff. I'll know more as the conference gets nearer. Thank you for letting me know about your classes-is it up on the HTL page yet? It is easier for me to plan for these things now financially and timewise.

I am honored to be your friend on the hero's journey. Funny I should get your friend request at this very moment. I was just checking the price of Stephen Gilligan's "Trance Camp"

I'm sure it's more than I could get for selling several of my organs... Still, one never knows what the future holds. I've been pleasantly surprised even downright shocked before. I think and feel the future holds amazing things.

Thanks for friending Michael...really enjoyed you're HPTI NLP course, really like the way you present, easy to listen to. Hope all is well in your world.

Michael, I have always been your friend, even before I knew and or met you, and I know this to be truebecause I just said it. I had such a great time hanging and speaking...and laughing with you at Hypnothoughts live. Thank you for being you. I love the way you think, I love the way I think and I think I love you too. I should probably stop drinking so early in the morning. Your friend, Steve

Thanks, Michael! Let's hang out in Vegas next summer! :)

Still waiting the chance to meet you in person in one of your seminars Michael.

Regards,

Alfredo
