Why take this course

A fundamental, but little known, part of being human is that all learning, and the pleasures we enjoy, involve trance states.

Our ability to focus attention has enabled us to make great advances in science, philosophy and the arts. It is hugely helpful in therapy, medicine and education – but it also has a downside making us vulnerable to being conditioned, manipulated and psychologically traumatised.

This new half-day course gives you profound information, which is crucial for our individual and collective sanity. Self-development depends on knowing that where we focus our attention and how we spend our time is crucial. An in-depth understanding of the role of trance in everyday life and what this means for our rapidly fracturing society – with its constant diet of social media – is becoming increasingly urgent.

Our natural propensity to go into trance has great advantages but it can also stop us thinking critically, be easily misused, even damage individuals and make whole populations ‘less than human’.

  1. Marshall Gus Linton, Retired Teacher

    Human Givens offers a fresh and sensible approach to understanding and navigating this experience of being human. I believe it is the future, and will ultimately replace both long term psycho-analysis and cognitive therapies.
    Happiness and stability come as the result of our emotional needs being met. Human Givens offers simple and elegant counseling and instruction to meet these essential needs at minimal cost and time. Whether you seek healing, or to deepen self-understanding you will be well served by HG courses.

  2. Human givens therapist

    An insightful look at trance state and it’s importance in our learning. Interesting debate and discussion on misuse and indoctrination.

  3. Gillian Legge, Human Givens Counsellor

    This training course explained how we as human beings learn, and can be conditioned or influenced, from the womb, to the end of our days. This is with the help of an in-built mechanism (a resource), called the Rem State, otherwise known as, a trance. A trance being in real terms, a focused state of attention.
    The course went on to explain how the role of trance can influence not only our everyday life, but wider society. Examples of how masses can be influenced and programmed with use of music, chanting, marching or anything that can make a person or persons enter a focused state of attention, (a trance).
    The course explained how trance states can be both positive or negative. Knowledge of how psychological traumas (including PTSD) was explained, and how it is possible, (when you learn how) to neutralise trauma memories.
    Hypnosis, was explained as any artificial way of accessing the REM State. That it is such an effective tool, but it needs to be handled with care and integrity.
    There was also ample time for questions and answers. It was an interesting mornings training which captured my attention and lived up to my expectations.
