These are the books I highly recommend reading. They have influenced and shaped my thinking or simply inspired me. Most of my hypnosis related work is based on a simple idea that we must hone our critical thinking because hypnosis is all around us. I also encourage the understanding and using of the mind to quiet itself in order to program yourself or simply elicit a relaxation response for stress reduction and overall health.
