115. Discuss with the client beforehand that trying too hard can get in the

and suggestions. ……………………………………………………………….. 128
116. Speak in present tense. Speaking in past tense is the biggest mistake
that hypnotherapists make when attempting age regression. …… 128

can take your client out of the revivification and put her into

hypermnesia. ……………………………………………………………………. 129
118. Encourage revivification by having your client describe where she
is. This deepens and intensifies the experience while bringing in
more detail. ………………………………………………………………………. 129

experience the deeper she can go into it. ………………………………. 130

call her by that age whenever addressing her in the age-regressed
state. ……………………………………………………………………………….. 132
124. In regression, ask your client what her name is, and if it is different,
use it rather than adult name. ………………………………………………. 132
125. Ask your client how she is feeling. This tends to deepen the
experience of age regression. ……………………………………………… 133
126. Have your client locate where she is experiencing the feeling in her
body. ……………………………………………………………………………….. 133
Chapter 12 Uncovering How The Problem Started, The Initial
Sensitizing Event (ISE) And Subsequent Sensitizing
Events (SSE)………………………………………………………………………….135
127. Learn how to age regress the client to where it all started, called the
Initial Sensitizing Event. ……………………………………………………. 135
128. If you are working with a client for smoking cessation, don’t go for
ISE, rather regress to the first cigarette. ……………………………….. 137
129. If attempting to uncover an ISE—make sure that you never lead the
client. ………………………………………………………………………………. 139
130. Move forward in time with statements like, “what happens next,” or
“move to the next significant event.” And “go on.” ………………. 142

132. Never use leading questions, not even multiple choice. ………….. 143
133. Avoid assumptive questions. ………………………………………………. 144

feeling new?” …………………………………………………………………… 145
136. Double check by instructing your client to go back again. ………. 146
137. Realize that you are only building up evidence of an ISE. ………. 146
138. The ISE should be consistent with the known history of the
client. ………………………………………………………………………………. 147
Chapter 13 Transforming The Sensitizing Event Using the
Informed Child Technique …………………………………………………….149

139. The ISE does not have to be a great trauma in the “child’s” life. 151
140. Have the “child” go into the background and then say, “Now I’m
speaking to the adult.” ……………………………………………………….. 153
141. Switch back and forth between “adult” and “child” by calling the
child by her age and the adult by “grownup.” ……………………….. 153
142. The Informed Child Technique requires that you regress before the
ISE. ………………………………………………………………………………… 154
143. The Informed Child Technique consists of changing the effect of the
ISE. ………………………………………………………………………………… 154
144. Inform the “child” that she is loveable and capable, and remove
negative erroneous beliefs created by ISE. …………………………… 155
145. Inform the “child” that she gets to grow up. …………………………. 156

expectation of success. ………………………………………………………. 168
158. Do Informed Adult Technique, where “future self” informs the
client she can really make the change. …………………………………. 168

more suggestions for the change that your client wanted to
make. ………………………………………………………………………………. 169
Chapter 15 Age Regression To A Specific Date, Time Or
Event…………………………………………………………………………………….171
160. You can age regress your client by suggesting that she will go to a
particular time, place or event. ……………………………………………. 172

About the Author
Calvin D. Banyan has been called “gifted” as a therapist and
teacher by his many clients, students and attendees of his
workshops and seminars. He is the Supervising Hypnotherapist
at The Hypnosis Center, Inc., a Certified Hypnotherapist and an
Instructor for the National Guild of Hypnotists.
Cal came to learn about hypnosis as a young boy. He grew up in
a family that had a hypnotist in it. His Grand Uncle (his
Grandmother’s brother) was working with hypnosis as far back
as the 1940s and experimenting with its effects. Cal grew up
hearing stories about hypnosis, age regression and even past life
regression long before it came into public view.
In 1976 he conducted his first hypnosis session after his
psychology professor recommended a book on the subject. Cal
became entranced with the phenomenon that he could generate
and went on to study and teach self-hypnosis and meditation.
While undergoing graduate school training for clinical
psychology, his supervisors and professors noticed that Cal was
talented and had a knack for getting to the root of the issues.
But Cal was not satisfied with the talk-therapy techniques that
he was learning. He knew that they were too slow and impotent
compared to what could be accomplished if he incorporated
hypnosis into therapy.
He sought out additional training in professional hypnotherapy
and was “exceedingly fortunate” to become a student of Gerald
Kein, the Director of the Omni Hypnosis Training Center in
Deland, Florida. In addition to being an excellent hypnotist,
hypnotherapist and educator, Mr. Kein managed to do one more
thing; he challenged his students not to stop at what he may
have taught them, but to take that information and build upon
it.
That is what Cal did. He went on to research and develop a
systematic and universal approach to doing hypnotherapy. That
system is called 5-PATH (short for Five-Phase Abreactive
Therapeutic Hypnosis)
