On Saturday, August 8th, I'm doing a special appearance sponsored by the New England Leather Alliance and the New England Hypnosis Group, a NELA SIG. I love to do things with NELA and the New England group, so I'm really looking forward to this one.
The name of the class is More Than Meets the Eye; it's a class on the basics of how to do safe, fun hypnotic transformations -- using hypnosis to turn your willing partner into someone or something else. I'll be covering a variety of things to consider when doing transformations, including defining the behaviors, features and limits of the new form; keeping control of the environment while playing; and transforming your partner back into their original form when the scene is done. Of course there will be demonstrations, in which members of the audience will have a chance to volunteer to be transformed into a robot, bimbo/dumb jock, vampire, animal, or whatever their imagination conjures up and play a negotiated scene. There will be time at the end for open discussion, and I'll have copies of my books Mind Play and The Mind Play Study Guide on hand for anyone who would like a signed copy.
Since this is a somewhat advanced topic, we'll start with a Hypnosis 101 presentation by PhotoJoseph, the leader of NEHG. There will be food and plenty of opportunity to meet, greet, and take questions.
