A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE
N at iona l Gui ld of H y pn otis ts
NATIONAL GUILD OF
Every group that thrives, whether as a culture, a
profession, a religion, or even a social organization,
develops traditions that, over time, become part of its
experience, its story, and its strength.
At the National Guild of Hypnotists, ours is a tradition
of connecting, networking, sharing, reaching out, and
helping others. Ours is a Tradition of Excellence.
Spanish writer, Jose Bergamin explains the
word tradition, by saying, “Tradition simply
means that we need to end what began well and
continue what is worth continuing.”
As you prepare to be part of the 2015 NGH
Convention, we encourage you to contemplate
all that the experience can mean for you. What
can you gain? What can you share? What can
you influence, inspire, envision, encourage, or
create? How can you be fully involved and
participate, helping to continue all that is so
very worthy of continuing?
The Latin origin of the word “contemplate” (con
templum) describes the act of thoughtfully
envisioning the grounds on which a temple will
be built. Inherently sacred by definition, the
process of contemplating your envisioned time
at the 2015 NGH Convention takes you beyond
marking days on your calendar, booking travel,
packing a suitcase, or even the steps you may
make in preparing to deliver a presentation or
lead a class.
As you reflect on your role as part of the
Tradition of Excellence, challenge yourself to
experience contemplation as a meditative
process. Reflect on your thoughts about the
people and events that await you in
Marlborough, Massachusetts on August 7, 8,
and 9. Push beyond your projected experience,
connecting your thoughts and your energy with
that of others who will also be in attendance.
Individually and collectively, as the membership of NGH,
you are the Tradition of Excellence,
continuing the commitment to the vision and intents
upon which the National Guild of Hypnotists was founded
… 65 years ago.
A Tradition of Excellence
Continuing the Commitment
In July of 2013, as the Duke
and Duchess of Cambridge
(William and Kate) made
plans for the arrival of their
first child, the media,
including many mainstream
publications, buzzed with
speculation that the Duchess
was exploring hypnosis re-
laxation and visualization
techniques to prepare herself
for the experiences of child-
birth. This spring, the
conversation began anew as
the world awaited the coming of a second royal heir, who joined the royal family on May 2.
Labor and delivery room details about the births of Prince George and two years later,
Princess Charlotte, will likely always remain a “royal secret.” However, recognizing that
their mother, the Duchess of Cambridge is known to prefer natural products and a holistic
approach to wellness and personal care, it is easy to surmise that her preparations for the
arrival of each royal baby may have included hypnosis relaxation techniques.
On this side of the pond, (where Hollywood stars are often treated like royalty) actresses
Jessica Alba and Tiffani Thiessen, as well as, fashion model Miranda Kerr, are among the
many women who have spoken publically about their positive experience with pre-birthing
hypnosis practices for deep relaxation during pregnancy and the labor and delivery
Whether the issue for your clients is childbirth, infertility, smoking, overeating, sleep
disruption, habituation, pain management, fear of public speaking, or any of a long list of
other challenges, the problem interrupts that person’s quality of life, impacts happiness,
and becomes... a royal pain.
Attend the National Guild of Hypnotists Convention, August 7-9. Add to your certifications,
your techniques, your knowledge, and your skills. Equip yourself to deal with kings,
queens, celebrities and the everyday problems that bring pain to the lives of everyday
